Sony CF-530

This boombox weighed in at a whopping 12lbs, not including batteries. Despite its weight, it was small when compared to models released a few years later–less than one foot in height. We notice that this was par for the course for the early systems, very heavy and solid, in a not-so-large package. These radios were durable, and we’ve had good luck finding them recently in working condition.
