Jvc Boombox

Vintage BOOMBOX question. How can they play MP3?

I have a modest collection of vintage boomboxes from the "golden age" of boomboxes. (The late 70's mid 80's). I have some Sharps, Panasonics, Sanyos, JVC;s and some Sony's.

The cassette mechanisms in most of them, unfotunately do not work but I heard that there is a device or aparatus that can convert a vintage boombox to play MP3's. Is this true?

The SOUND of thr boomboxes still are great coming from their speakers, and the recievers all work well, but I want to convert them to lay MP3'S.

Any advice would be appreciated.

PS Does anyone else appreciate the asthetic of the older boomboxes?

if it has an imput jack you can use a ipod or other device. i've also used the microphone jack to play through the speakers.
