Franklin Roadie modular music system

Posted in Uncategorized by Conner Flynn on September 28th, 2010

Franklin knows us too well. We like our music systems both modular and retro looking. The company’s Roadie certainly fits the bill. It’s a three part system (if you want to have all parts), that consists of the EVS-2000, EVS-3000 and EVS-4000.

In that order, you get a base model that accepts sources via a 3.5mm input jack, a rechargeable battery with SD card slot, and a tweeter / equalizer. All three should go on sale soon for $99.99 as a bundle, while the 2000 and 3000 can be picked up by themselves for $49.99 / $79.99.

Franklin has been in the electronics market with things like digital dictionaries and spelling devices for a long time the company has announced a new digital reader that isn’t like a Kindle as you might think. This digital reader looks like a pen and is aimed at kids that can’t read yet.

The child and the parent would place special stickers on each page of any book to use the AnyBook Reader. After the stickers are placed the parent or reader would follow along and touch the sticker on each page.
