Here you go....



Yes, it's the Panasonic tube mobile CD receiver. Click here for details.

Only problem....US$949.00. I suppose it's still less expensive than the Bose sound system in some cars. But this is waaaaaaaay cool.

man I thought this was another april fools jack. However impractical, that thing is way cool...70's cool. Who would have thought Panasonic would come out with a tube audio product, let alone tube car audio?

Actually, I posted about this deck almost 2 years ago on hometheaterforum.com. I finally located it today at audiocubes.com since it was a "New Product" for April.

Looking at the deck kind of makes me want to buy a 70s Caddy Eldorado pimpmobile.

Does this fit an any standard double DIN? If this was half the price, I'd buy it. I really like it.

Yup, looks like it. A single-DIN unit is about 7" wide x 2" high x 5-7/8"-6-3/4" deep. The Panasonic CQ-TX5500D is 7" wide x 4" high x 6-3/8". Should fit right into a double-DIN chassis or single-DIN w/undertray.

Here's a tube amp for car audio that I have been lusting over for over a year now.

Tube driver blue

How long would tubes stand up to the vibrations in a car? Sounds pretty expensive and high maintainence to me.

There was a thread about this last year.

Very retro.

It looks like it is a stationary, you can't remove it when you leave your car.

That would last, say, 2 days in Chicago!

I don't see how this is an issue at all. How many people saw that and thought it might be removable? I didn't. I don't live in crime free areas, but that's not my biggest concern when I am buying a car product.,

David Berning designed a mobile version of his EA-230 amp,which is marketed by milbert audio. 35 wpc. And the tubes are actually quite durable. Russian Migs used them, since they can survive the EMP associated with a nuclear blast. www.milbert.com

$950 is a small price to pay to know that you can still have your tunes in case of nuclear blast
