Sadly, our rock ‘n’ roll days are long gone. What with all this ‘new rave’ business going on, there’s no place in the current scene for wrinkly old rockers like us. Luckily, ThinkOutside remembers the old days and has gone all Spinal Tap on us with a portable speaker system that goes to 11. The block rockin’ Boomtube H201 punches out an ear wax-shifting 40-watt sound from its 2in aluminium speakers and mini-subwoofer – perfect for a spot of Sabbath or Saxon.Better still, the system will work with almost anything you chuck at it – MP3 players, mobile phones, PSPs and even laptops can join the party.Yep, with your portable Boomtube buddy you can put on a spontaneous shindig wherever you are, and thanks to its rechargeable lithium-ion battery you'll always get the party started.Unlike its lesser rivals, ThinkOutside's system is packing some seriously body-shakin' sounds. Its suitably named MaxxBass technology is guaranteed to bring the boom back to you tunes. The system looks the part too – its brushed aluminium front is in keeping with the system's steroid-induced sound. Apart from an 18in Stonehenge add-on, what more could we ask for?
