It’s easy to upcycle old cassette boom boxes into general purpose amplified speakers. Cassettes are mostly obsolete and there are plenty of working used cassette players available for almost nothing. I recently picked up a portable karaoke cassette player for $1 at a yard sale. The seller apologized that the microphone wasn’t working anymore, so it would only play cassettes, but that was fine by me.
