    Hi all,

    I'm the owner of a vintage blog called vintagewiki (www.vintagewiki.com) and I write articles about cool vintage items.

    For this post, I specifically want to provide you with more information on the Dynamite 8 track player:)

    KA-BOOM !!!!

    The panasonic RQ-830S Dynamite 8 Track Tape Player was introduced in 1974.
    It came in detonator red, bomb blue, explosion yellow but there is also a white and transparant version. It is very easy to use, as Panasonic wrote down in their advertising:

    "Slide in the tape. Out booms the music from an explosive-sounding dynamic speaker. Then push the plunger to change your channel and to change your tune."

    You can thus only change the volume and push the plunger to change your favorite song. Although its limited features, this 8 Track Player was considered to be one of the most innovative track players, also because of its design.

    It works on batteries but also an adaptor is available.
    Thereby, it was possible to take your music along with you, like in your car, on the street, on the beach ...
