CDs might be a thing of the past in most places around the world but they are still very big in Japan: the country's huge J-pop industry is still measuring artists' success in terms of CD sales and CD players remain a feature in most homes. This is the reason you can find in Japan something like the Orion SMC-160BT CD and Bluetooth Stereo System, a music player that will play all the CDs you (or your parents, if you're a millennial) have, with an AM and FM radio thrown in. And because this is the third decade of the 21st century, it also supports playback of 999 MP3/WMA files in 99 folders to a total of 32GB!
With five preset equalizers (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Rock, Classic) and S-BASS and loudness functions, the Orion SMC-160BT CD and Bluetooth Stereo System allows you to customize your sound according to your taste. As for the final output, it comes to you through its two 10-watt, 4-ohm, full-range, bass reflex speakers with 7.5 cm (2.9") cones made of washi paper, the handmade paper that is itself one of the oldest Japanese crafts and used in numerous others. Housed in a vintage gold-color case, this system reminds you that there are better ways to listen to music than earbuds and a smartphone!
