TDK is back in the game with a high-end 2.1 portable stereo bearing the no-frills name "Three Speaker Boombox". The product will hit retail in January, with the suggested price of $499. 

The system features AM and FM radio, iPod/iPhone input (via USB), USB stick media playback, and multiple aux input connections. The left and right speakers are powered by 10 watts each, with a 15 watt woofer at the center, for a total of 35 watts RMS. The handle, knobs, and backing all use heavyweight aluminum. The front of the system uses a piano gloss acrylic. And yes, it's heavy.
