The Soviets Made A Boom Box?

Why was this even created? It goes against the idea of Cold War Soviet economics which really didn't make available such modern consumer entertainment products - certainly not one that would encourage the Soviet Youth from becoming more enamored with Western rock music culture than they already were. Certainly not with a tape deck because that kind of music delivery format had to almost universally be imported from the West and that was a crime in the USSR. Plus nothing would be colored red. Too cheery a color for a nation with daily train trips to the Siberian Gulags. I bet all those modular parts don't fit together once you take the pieces apart because like most Soviet products from cars to rocket ships were just poorly made junk.

OF COURSE a Soviet boom box would be RED, the colour of the Communist Party and Flag!
