Akai AJ-C1FS

There isn’t a lot of information available on this unique Akai AJ-C1 FS boombox.  It definitely has a nice sleek style to it and as you can see it has a metal door that opens to reveal some of the controls.  The build quality is excellent as is the attention to detail. Akai didn’t make too many boomboxes and they certainly didn’t build their name selling them either.  But, the boxes they did make were of good quality and performed well.

The Akai AJ-C1FS will run on AC/DC or 10 D cell batteries. It weighs in at about 24 pounds and is 29 inches long.

Overall the the Akai AJ-C1FS is an interesting box. Definitely something you’d want in your collection. They don’t come up for sale very often but when they do they bring a decent price.  This one sold for $400.00 in good working condition in March 2012.
