Back in 1986, Sony released a compact hi-density component system, including speakers on each side - like a large heavy monster of a "boom-box".
This was called the FH-15R and included a tuner, cassette tape player, amplifier with EQ, integral speakers and inputs for external equipment such as a CD player.
The system was expensive and received very good reviews and even these days, 35 years on, owners still rave about their FH-15R's and the market prices online reflect this (one guy in UK is asking around $700 for his FH-15R!).
These FH-15R's were in a class way beyond your average "el-cheapo" boom-boxes of the 1980's, that's for sure.

I have had the FH-15R since the 1980's, it has never missed a beat but someone wanted it so it now lives in a new home, however I retained some parts for the TC-158R cassette player as the new FH-15R owner didn't want the cassette player.
Prior to removal from the equipment, working perfectly.
Upon removal, the slide switches have been given a squirt of cleaner
Now stored in sealed plastic
