At Vintage Sound Machine we make portable Hi-Fi systems out of old vintage suitcases, using some of the highest quality audio amplifiers and speakers.  Each VSM is unique.  Please go to the shop for all available VSM's, and suitcases to be customized.  They are all battery powered (6 hours +) and come with an audio lead and charger which doubles up as a power supply.
