    Anyone have any clear screen shots of it or even better yet know the model? I have an idea for DragonCon next year and this info would be useful.

    I don't think there are any official or clear photos of the "ghetto blaster", screen-capping is your best option for trying to get things to scale.

    Re: The Ghetto Blaster from Da Funk

    After some screenshooting and internet searching I found the exact model:

    Sanyo M9902 (sometimes known as M9909).



    The one in the Da Funk video is broken, all the buttons/knobs (on the top and front) are missing and the handle has been fixed with black tape.

    Thanks man, thought it was some other model on ebay but that one was 300 and I just cringed. Now I need to find out how to rig one for a mp3 player. Also first and foremost I need to find one.

    Re: The Ghetto Blaster from Da Funk

    When you find a suitable stereo you could probably use a "cassette adapter" to play your mp3s in it:



    It's made for car stereos where you insert the tape differently but it'll probably work somehow.

    Or just go full old school, haha.



    Good luck with your project!

    I didn't realize how expensive the cassettes were, that explains the winky face.

    Re: The Ghetto Blaster from Da Funk

    So I finally found one, and it's to arrive next Monday. Just need to get cassettes for it and it'll be all ready. I just can't bear to destroy it up like the video copy though.

    It came in today, the thing is pristine and the sound quality is great for a machine from the 1980s. Now I need to get some cassettes for the thing.

    May I just take a second to marvel at the fact that this thread actually worked out? Good work DP detective crew, just know that if he ever needs help you've officially been deputized by Champi Adler.

    Hi,
