$250 for one of these isn't a bad deal at all.

I don't know why but these cases remind me of I Come from San Francisco. *NSFW

Is it just me or does it look like it's making the face from The Scream in that top post there?

That is pretty cool for portable stereo reasons.

Wouldn't that depend on the audio quality? If it sounded like a bunch of tacks, rattling around in a biscuit tin, then $250 would be total theft.

I might be wrong, but I've always thought that there was some science involved in speaker design -- and it involved more than just whacking a bunch of random speakers into any old enclosure?

What I want to know is where he's getting those great old suitcases. I want to get one of those and cover it with old-fashioned luggage labels.

Silvertone made a guitar case with a built-in amp. I think it's time for that idea to be revisited.

From the About page:
I am an audio-nut. So you can be assured I make each case produce the best sound possible. I shy away from plastic or thin suitcases because of their not so great acoustic qualities. Mainly I use cases that are built with wood and leather because of the superior sound they produce.
More crazy audio stuff from Mr. Simo: Speaker necklace, from his I Am Simo Wordpress site, and the I Am Simo Etsy shop.
