Sony CFS-700 TranSound


The Sony CFS-700 also known as the TranSound is a rarely seen example of Sony’s vintage boombox models. It also incorporates some features that we’re very original for its time. The boombox had a built in stand and the speakers could rotate up to 45 degrees. They could be set at six different positions and could be detached completely as well. The metal tabs that hold the speakers in position also act as connectors so that you could hook up another pair of speakers using the speaker outputs on the back of the boombox if you wanted. Very handy!
