Where do Boom-boxes come from?

Design Exchange of Toronto, which calls itself “Canada’s national centre for the promotion of design,” claims that the Project G stereo, which Clairtone Sound Corporation produced, was “conceptually original, technically and functionally perfect, and aesthetically superior.”
It was “the epitome of a design icon.”

No sure about you, but I do quite like it, in a strange Monday morning way. The world’s first boom-box or all in one lifestyle stereo perhaps? Nice emotional advertising layout iPod style eh?
So what happened to this so-called design icon?

    I never knew there was so much national proud for the Canadians with this product. Interesting to read that this product was one of the few products being sold in the States made by Canadians.
    Thanks DT.
