The Turntable Ghettoblaster and Other Cool Boomboxes

Like its name says, The Ghettoblaster Hall of Fame lists some of history's most excellent boomboxes. Like this one from Sharp: a radio, cassette recorder, and yes, a turntable combo!

If you want a full stereo system that you can take with you, look no further than Sharp's offerings. 20+ years back, the VZ-2500, VZ-2000 and VZ-3000 included compact stereos systems with a radio, cassette recorder and yes, a turntable. And these were no ordinary turntables mind you, these used "AutoDisc" technology, marketed by Sharp with the phrase "Play Both Sides." Think of auto-reverse tape technology for a record player: using two tonearms, these stereos allowed one to play Side A or B without having to flip the LP over.
