A new Boombox Bluetooth Speaker from GPO Retro

GPO Retro

In homage to GPO Retro's Brooklyn Boombox, this Autumn they release a new, miniature Bluetooth speaker with the same iconic design. 

The 5 Watt speaker comes in three styles, floral, turquoise and silver. Finished in metal and fabric, the front and back are designed in the same look and style as the Brooklyn, a full size 25 Watt boombox cassette player, DAB+ radio, CD deck and Bluetooth device. The Brooklyn has flown off the shelves since it launched in 2017, across the UK and the US. It's been photographed with celebs including Liam Gallagher and the Beastie Boys on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. 

The mini boombox speakers feature a rechargeable battery and take two hours to fully charge. 

The GPO Bronx will be available later in the Autumn and is priced at £19.95. It will be available to buy at GPO's website

About:

The original GPO Telephones were produced by the General Post Office in the UK from the mid-19th Century, right up to the late 20th Century whilst the telephone network was still a publicly run service. Within that one hundred and fifty year period the GPO released a huge amount of memorable and sturdy phones designed for everyday use which were eventually discontinued as the company was turned into a private corporation in the 1980s and technology moved on to satisfy a demand for cheaper products. Our Mission and Values Retro design inspires everything we do, but our love of modern innovation powers us. Our products are inspired by retro, but created with care.
