I think this is easily one of the best looking boomboxes out there. It's the Sharp GF-1000 and is part of the famous Sharp four woofer family of boomboxes including the GF-767, GF-777, and GF-999. It was only offered for sale in Japan in the early 1980's so it is very rare to find one in the U.S. While it looks good with the cobalt blue speaker grills on, it looks even better with them off.
The white speaker cones and chrome dustcaps really stand out and give it a sophisticated and clean look. The GF-1000 has four 16cm woofers and two horn tweeters. It also has two cassette decks both capable of playing normal, chrome and metal cassettes.

It has a four-channel power amplifier with adjustable bi-amping and Per-channel power control for super-woofers. Another interesting aspect of the GF-1000 is that it's FM tuning range is from 76MHz to 108MHz which is not normal for a domestic Japanese boombox as their FM dial only reaches 90MHz.
