Pyle Audio is looking to update the ghetto blaster for the wireless age with its Street Blaster. Ditching the rectangular boombox styling of the '80s, the unit adopts a cylindrical form factor that makes it look like something Geordi La Forge pulled out of the USS Enterprise's warp core.

Packing 1,000 Watts of power in a rugged package weighing 21.7 lb (9.8 kg) and measuring 24.5 x 10 x 10 in (62 x 25 x 25 cm), the stereo Street Blaster is certainly in keeping with the boomboxes of old in terms of size and weight, but features the wireless capabilities we've come to expect from speakers in the 21st Century.

In addition to the a 3.5 input for connecting a music playback device via a cable, the unit also features Bluetooth wireless connectivity for streaming music from Bluetooth-enabled devices, including iOS and Android devices as well as PCs. The unit also features Near Field Communication (NFC) for easy pairing of NFC-enabled Android devices.

Pyle has also given the Street Blaster AUX, microphone and guitar inputs with users able to adjust treble, bass, echo, volume, microphone and guitar levels to achieve their preferred sound. A built-in digital amplifier pumps up the jam, while LEDs that strobe and flash in time with the music provide some visual accompaniment.

Instead of relying on a bag full of D batteries when away from mains power, the Street Blaster is powered by a rechargeable battery that is claimed to be good for four hours of play time. Battery indicators will let you know when the charge is getting down, while a USB port also allows mobile devices to be recharged from the unit.

The Street Blaster is available now for US$249.

This looks like a military jet engine! It probably sounds as loud. The thing is, play it in the street, and noise abatement police will quickly step in and spoil the fun!

I get it. It's as loud as a jet engine. Just don't crank it up within screaming distance of my house.

Just what the world needs, doof doof dickheads on the footpaths as well as in cars. Honestly, you would think companies could find something more useful to design and manufacture, but I guess there's always some tool who thinks the world wants to hear their crap music and that their wants are more important than the rights of others to a bit of peace and quiet. Sadly, the human race gets ever more selfish and inconsiderate...

Mr T you took the words right out of my mouth. :-)

@Mr T I read that as "get off my lawn!"
Really music is almost less social now than it used to be. Almost everyone uses headphones and hardly anyone owns a boom box.
Most people don't even have decent stereos in their homes any more. If you throw a party are you going to use someones iPhone to play music at it?
As far as things people do that make me angry music has the be among the lowest on the list.

Geordi La Forge. Really? That is MR. Scott to you.

This 1000 Watt of audio power is obviously not RMS power
Its probably 10 Watts RMS per channel.
There are no further specifications on the web site
