The Tombox Is A Beautiful Retro Speaker Stuffed With Modern Conveniences
It can be argued that today's modern electronics lack the soul found in older devices. There was a time that a radio felt nearly alive thanks to its glowing inner tubes and wooden casing. But now, with printed circuit boards and mass produced plastic casings, electronics feel dead, disposable and down right stiff. Tombox speakers are a bit different. Using repurposed vintage electronics, these speakers combine the warm feeling of older electronics with features of a modern kit -- think steampunk without the gaudy nonsense.
