Boombox morphs into the future

But new Harman Kardon system doesn't support latest Nano


If you take a '70s boombox and digitally morph it into the future, you'd have this iPod speaker system. It even takes the same kind of power supply as its forefathers--eight D-size flashlight batteries, which means it's not something that can be tossed easily into your messenger bag.

Harman Kardon's "Go + Play" does bring the concept into the 21st century with a 120-watt amplifier, twin Atlas drivers and twin Ridge drivers. But iLounge observes "one serious oddity"--it doesn't include full support for the Nano. And at $350, that could be a serious deterrant.
