TEAC R-1B Retro Stereo

The appeal of a vintage radio design built using modern technology is very strong. Not everyone cares for the larger size of most traditional sets, however. A reasonable compromise is a design based on the early transistor radios that made portable sound possible. TEAC, which has already released numerous stereos in the nostalgic mode, today unveiled the R-1B stereo in Japan. Its power output is meek at 1.5W, but it features both an AM/FM radio tuner as well as an auxiliary input jack for an iPod or most any other modern audio source. Currently on sale in Japan for $90 US, a variant of the R-1 already appears at American TEAC website and should therefore be ready very soon.
