So after many years of watching (listening to?) mediocre wireless systems hit the market, I finally broke down and bought TDK's new Wireless Boombox A73.

Design.
This retro black and gold theme they have going on? Amazing. I've never seen better looking devices on the market. All of these speakers are a set piece of their own, and often become a topic of discussion. Especially when someone hears how good it sounds.

Sound.
In this price range, it simply blows away all the other systems from Bose, Jawbone or Nokia. It has a very full and rich sound to it and seems to compliment anything I play through it. Even when maxing out the volume, it handles itself very well without distortion or movement. One thing I really want to point out is that it isn't "fatiguing" like some of the other stereos I've listened to. You can just go on for hours... on an Aux cable (which I'll explain why soon).

Build Quality.
It loses a star here. The feel of it is just "plastic", similar to the way a Samsung Galaxy phone feels. It does not feel like a premium device, though it does look good physically. I wouldn't want to take this out and about like a Boombox.

Bluetooth (UPDATE BELOW).
This is probably the most frustrating aspect of the TDK Boombox. I can't get it to keep a connection for more than a few minutes, which frankly kills the box for me. It may have to do with me being in a busy apartment building with lots of interference, but my friend's Jambox doesn't have this problem at all.

I'll be giving the TDK Wireless Boombox a few more days to see what customer service has to say. I really want to like it, amazing sound, stellar looks and its pretty darn intuitive.

If this review sounds effusive and a little uncritical, know that this is my first Amazon review ever (the A73 is that good). I'll talk about its few issues, and I see them as they are, it's just that if you are looking for the best-sounding portable speaker on the market for less than your arm and leg, you've found it, and nothing else matters that much.

I'm a minor professional audio engineer and (female! What what!) musician who has used many different studio monitors, amps, stereos, and portable Bluetooth speakers. My ears are well-trained.
I listened to twenty different high-end Bluetooth speakers at Fry's yesterday, cranked them to the max, and waded through a bunch of really mediocre devices and a few good ones. The Bose Soundlink II, the Beatbox by Dre, the Sony BTX 500 soundbar were honestly all impressive, but the TDK A73 was in a different league.
The design aesthetic drew me in immediately, and being a child of 80s, I immediately praised the return of the classic boombox in an ultracontemporary-and-yet-retro form. It is a child of music studios and rich peoples' home stereos. It has made every environment I've placed it in look oh-so-classy.
That said, straight to the point: TDK has lavished this beast with warm, analogue, incredibly balanced hi-fi sound that will blow you away. The highs are epic, but natural and clean, in that there is no ear burnout even after four hours of near-continuous listening. The mid-range is attended to in a way you just don't hear on other portable BT speakers, with a huge soundstage for the size. It's a staggering 30-watt amp, so I played electric guitar through it with my band and it sounded AWESOME. Whoever criticized the bass on this thing: are you serious?

PROS:

I like the retro look of the boombox. It feels solid and hefty to me (11.8 pounds) but not too heavy to carry around. The handle is solid heavy duty plastic screwed into place on each side by two screws and fits my hand nicely.

The wireless works fine but I find the sound better using the wired connection to my MP3 better. The wireless cuts out periodically.

I love the sound on this boombox. It is clear and crisp even when I cranked the thing WAYYYY up. It has five speakers and sounds phenomenal for a stereo of its size.

The remote comes with a CR2025 lithium coin battery included.

I like that the unit comes with a rechargeable battery but do wish that the charge lasted longer than six hours. Of course, I can always keep it plugged in, which actually is probably what I will do most of the time. The rechargeable battery IS replaceable once it quits charging but the manual says it needs to be bought from TDK Life on Record. I tried to find one on their website but was unable to (for price).

I like that there is a USB for charging. I do wish there was a USB port for input (flash drives, laptop, etc).

I like having FM radio on the boombox and having four presets on the remote control.

The unit comes with separate operator's manuals in different languages - English, Spanish, German, French I'm pretty sure about. But it also comes with what I think are Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Russian and maybe more?

CONS:

The remote for this unit is small and thin. I am quite sure I will be misplacing it soon unless I do something to prevent it. I think I'll put a velcro tab on the back of the boombox and one on the remote so that I can keep them together.
