Description

Perhaps some old school fake screw detailing on the rings would add a touch of the 70’s/80’s to it for sure.

At first I thought it was perhaps a little too thin but after comparing it to a friends boombox that is from the early 80’s they feel somewhat the same. The GPO Brooklyn Boombox features an integrated rechargeable battery, which allows the unit to be used anywhere, providing you with music on the go. The Bluetooth functionality of this player ties you into the digital age while still retaining the classic, analog feel. Hereby ProtelX, declares that this equipment (GPO Brooklyn) is in compliance with the essential requirements and other relevant provisions of Directive, you can access a copy of this certificate on www.

I love this, looks great, sounds great, I have to give it 4 stars though because I think more work is needed on smaller details, like all the volume/bass/treble knobs, etc feels pretty rushed, I like it regardless.

The case is really nice and reminds me heavily of a classic box, silver at the front and light coloured (beige? underneath the main board is the board that houses the output level meters, CD/USB player controls and the tape counter.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

Packed full of audio options both classic and modern, it bridges the gap well between old-skool charm and modern audio necessities. It plays CDs and cassettes (and can even record on cassettes), but also has USB ports and Bluetooth. So first impressions were that it weighed much more than i thought it would, i knew the battery was a modern type so i was surprised at that.

If you’ve got your heart set on that boombox look, you’ll be hard pressed to find one with the range of connectivity options offered here, making the Brooklyn somewhat unique. With functions to control the volume, balance, bass and treble, you can create the sound of your choice. There’s simply a lack of warmth overall to the output – you’ve treble and bass dials to play with, but there’s no escaping the feeling that the enclosure is leading to a hollow sound. I didn't think the mech looked very high quality but it has to be said that on my nice new tape it sounded very stable.

It may be hard to believe in our modern, mobile world, but there was once a time when taking your tunes with you on the go was quite the feat. It sorta has a hollow feel to it but with understanding that todays tech does not require as much space as it once did. So long as you’re not expecting audiophile performance (which, to be fair, isn’t what you’d expect from a classic boombox anyway) GPO’s Brooklyn is very enjoyable. What’s perhaps even more interesting though is the ability to record audio to a blank USB stick inserted on the side. The boombox was never known for having exceptional sound quality, and the GPO Brooklyn Boombox continues broadly in this tradition.I was surprised as i expected there to be deviations in sound across all formats buts its very even.
