Many people are in love with vintage-looking speakers these days, especially those that grew up in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Their memory dates back to the times when Ameen Sayanni used to present his Binaca Geetmala program on Radio Ceylon. Even otherwise, radios and speakers from that era had fantastic bass and clarity. My point is that from the warm sounding to the wood fragrance there is something unique about old time speakers that people love. And the main reason old-time speakers are returning is to rekindle the old romance associated with them; they also make a perfect piece of decoration for many too.
Aiwa, the iconic consumer electronics brand from Japan, has launched one such innovation: MI-X 150 Retro Plus X. It is a feature-rich Bluetooth speaker with a unique design and high-end functionality, at the price of Rs 24,990.
