    Ah, Grundig, good sleuthing Mark. I like the two foam dots on the lid's inside so any reels can be held when the case is closed.

    I liked that as well. Not exactly pocket material those tape reels.

    I dunno, man -- I've got some cargo pants that could probably swallow up a 10-1/2" NAB-hub reel. B)

    Likewise -- another nice touch. It's a pretty keen looking piece of hardware in its own, oh-so-German way. :)
    The Sony 777 family has (had) something similar, FWIW.
    oops, nope -- scratch that. :|

    This photo has been fact-checked by independent forum monitors and has been deemed to be false. The image has been photoshopped to remove the Starbucks location that should be approximately mid-frame, third boulder from the left. The original also had a homeless "tent-city", though it remains unclear if Martian authorities cleared the encampment out before this shot was taken.

    Starbucks wouldn't let the rover use the rest room without buying a Grande coffee -- and the rover was told it could just forget about using the WiFi.

    Oh, I should mention -- I am pretty sure those AKAI speakers are TL cabinets loaded with rather nice Fostex "fullrange" 4" drivers (akin to the famous/infamous Radio Shack 40-1197/Fostex FE-103 drivers). :|

    Now:
    I see your AKAI and raise you pair of "Horrortones".

    That's what I was thinkin'.
    I like the fact that what I assume is the green is shaped like Africa -- even with a little Madagascar there to the right. :)

    I never thought about that but it does look like Africa.

    I blew up the photo it actually is in South Africa and you take a helo to the tee
