What’s this then? An old intercom system? A vintage amplifier? No – it’s actually a state of the art speaker system for your portable music device. Or to give it the technical name – the Evergreen DN-MPS100.
Yes, of course this stylish wooden box is from Japan. And it’s easy to use. Just stick in your portable USB drive (or portable player via a USB cable) to blast out all the tunes contained on it. Or you can plug in some headphones and keep the music to yourself.
In truth, this 7-watt speaker isn’t that loud, but the Evergreen looks good – and that counts for a lot in our eyes. Available in Japan now for the equivalent of around £30.
