TDK 3 Speaker BoomBox - Go Figure

And I thought I was the only Gen X guy missing the iconic Boom Boxes of the 80's, leave it to TDK - the company who brought you the mixtape (tm). The last I heard of TDK, they were producing *Chrome* and *Metal*  "Super Avilyn" casette tapes adorned with their bitchin diamond logo thingy ======================>>>

So there I was minding my own business checking out the latest (sic) Beastie Boys release when what do I see but the TDK 3 Speaker Boombox above, it bears a striking resemblance to the Aiwa I wrote about some time back (below).  The Beasties are of my generation, so I would not be surprised if they were inspired by the same Aiwa.
