With the advent of personal music players, boomboxes slowly faded away. But with the new dawn of Bluetooth and improved speaker technology, portable music devices have started to revive the retro feel.
It’s the case of the newly unveiled Tutti Studio Matti, a block-shaped wireless speaker that wants to bring back the boombox era.
A portable speaker, the Matti features a thick, molded polymer sub-chassis, steel grills, and an aluminum handle. For protection, it comes equipped with silicone rubber bumpers.
Get the party started with Matti
Users can use the Matti as a stand-alone device or in concert with other Matti speakers. In the former scenario, you’ll be able to enable “Stereo Mode” for a traditional sound experience in which you hear both left and right channels from a single speaker.
Add one more Matti speaker for a true stereo experience. With three you’ll be able to create a completely immersive sound experience. Hardcore party fans can link up to eight Matti speakers together.
Oh and there’s also a microphone included on board for Karaoke or MC battles. Super fun!
Tutti Studio is offering the speaker in four color schemes: black rubber with rose gold speaker grilles, emergency orange rubber with mint green grills, light punk rubber with dark pink grilles and cream rubber with silver speaker grilles.
The wireless speaker includes a battery that can last up to 10 hours on a single charge and can deliver party appropriate volume.
If Matti got your attention, then you should know Tutti Studio is in the process of crowdfunding the product on Kickstarter right now. They currently managed to gather $32,523 from their $48,000 goal, so if everything goes well Matti will be ready to ship in April. There are still 17 days to go.
You can currently place a pre-order for Matti for $169 and up. Once the campaign is over, the speaker will go on sale for for a heftier $299. Those who don’t want to wait can do so immediately from the official website.
