CES photos: Boomboxes galore

LAS VEGAS — If the Kirkland-based Bluetooth trade group made a dime for every Bluetooth device shown at CES last week, the group could buy itself a skyscraper and a 787.

Everywhere you looked were Bluetooth accessories, especially boomboxes that stream music from phones and PCs.

Here’s a sample of the boomboxes I saw on the floor, starting with Sony’s RDH-GTK37iP:

Here’s a phalanx of them, showing their light effects:

This setup has “2,000 watts of neighbor-waking power,” Sony representative Jeremey Miller said:

This is truly the Ferrari of boomboxes:

Sharp’s $249 GX-M10 has a jack for plugging in your guitar or bass; it has 100 watts, dual subwoofers and is on sale now:
