Here’s a version of the Vela Disco Lite that you don’t see very often. It’s the Vela Disco Lite DK-7000 and was made by Skitronic in China. I’m not sure of the specific year of manufacture but I’m sure it was around the mid to late 80’s. It features dual cassettes and a five band equalizer.
It definitely has the disco look that other Vela boomboxes have with the multitude of LED’s. Most of the Disco Lite boxes are not really known for their build quality or performance but still remain extremely popular. I suppose it’s because they visually represent the attitude of the era where partying, fun, and music were the priority. The box was built as a eye catching machine rather than an audiophile instrument.
It looks like the speakers are detachable and there is also a line in so one could hook up an iPod if they wanted.
As I mentioned pretty much all the disco lite boomboxes are in high demand from collectors. A DK-990 recently sold for over $1300.00 and I’ve seen others sell for even more. The DK-7000 such as this one don’t come up for sale very often so I don’t have any final sales prices to post but I’ll keep watch and post any sales when they happen.

I have a DK-7000 that I am willing to part with. The boom box plays just fine and the lights work on the unit. However, this is one cable missing that goes from the main controls over to the speaker. Let me know if you’re interested.

Another one for buy :
There are actually two versions of this Vela DK-7000 Disco Lite boombox. The one shown on this page, the one that I also have, has a five band graphic equalizer. The other version of the DK-7000 has a microphone input jack on the front panel and has a three band graphic equalizer. That second version has a microphone input level control and an echo control in place of two of the equalizer frequency sliders (100 Hz and 330 Hz.)
I forgot to mention that the version of the Vela DK-7000 that has the microphone input jack is model number DK-7000EM.
