JVC have just unveiled their latest portable audio creation the RD-R2 that has been specifically designed for “street dancers” and musicians.
The new JVC RD-D2 is equipped with a microSD/SDHC slot allowing you to store and play music on cards up to 32GB is size. It can record music through a built-in stereo mic and support media in either MP3/WMA/linear PCM (WAV) or AAC formats.
Its quipped with 2 x 2.5W speakers and a number of special features including a countdown feature or an automatic hand clapping feature to help get you into the rhythm. Its also fitted with a USB port, an FM tuner, a guitar input, and a KORG/metronome tuner.
The new generation of boombox is definitely smaller that the original 80’s versions and will no doubt have a longer battery life but does it have the same soul?
The new JVC RD-R2 will be arriving in Japan next month for around $460 and a smaller model the RD-R1 will also be available without the guitar input and the KORG tuner for $290.
