This fairly run of the mill looking boombox is the GE Blockbuster 3-5259A. It is one of the more sough after GE boomboxes and has good clear sound along with some eye appealing analog meters right in the middle of the box. It was made in the early 80’s and was actually pictured in a scene in the movie Nightmare on Elm Street. It has a standard volume knob as opposed to sliders which many boomboxes were using at the time and would run on 8 D cell batteries. It also has a Line In if you want to stream music through it.
The GE 3-5259A Blockbuster is a pretty highly sought after mid size boombox. If you’re patient you can find a deal but they will usually sell for $200-$400 in very good working condition.
