Listening to my favorite music tracks in high volume levels has always been one of my favorite hobbies and that applies not only when I’m at home or in my car but also when I’m on vacation (like now). However although both when I’m at home or in my car I’ve made certain to have a decent amount of volume to cover my needs the same does not really apply when I’m away since the majority of portable speakers are not much larger than a can of soda and thus the volume levels produced (although quite good in some cases) are nowhere close to the ones a complete speaker system is able to. Well luckily this industry never ceases to amaze me and so today we will be taking a look at the latest wireless portable speaker by TDK the quite massive A73 Boombox.

When we first saw a presentation of the A73 Boombox we thought it would be just another Bluetooth wireless portable speaker just slightly bigger to accommodate the 2.1 configuration, boy we were wrong. The A73 Boombox is actually LARGE and by that i mean almost as large as the old stereo cassette players people used to carry around on their shoulders back in the 80's and early 90's when they wanted to stir things up. Luckily the A73 Boombox is quite thinner and weighs a lot less so there are some differences with the "past" however that doesn't change the fact that this is by far the largest portable speaker we've used to date. I only need to tell you that it features two 13cm passive radiators, two 5cm full-range drivers and a 13cm subwoofer all in the same package. All that's really left is for us to see just how much size really matters in terms of sound output and that's exactly what we've been doing for the past week with exemplary results.
