Now you can listen to your favorite MP3 tunes through any ordinary cassette tape recorder, like your car radio! The Abe BT 80C Bluetooth Stereo Cassette wirelessly connects Bluetooth-enabled music players, Pocket PC and  Smartphone (as long as it supports the required Bluetooth profiles) or PC to your car or home stereo tape recorder. Just put the Bluetooth Stereo Cassette into any cassette tape recorder, pair and connect it to any Bluetooth-enabled audio devices such as MP3, PDA, CD or PC, you are ready to enjoy your digital music with full sound and convenience.

Features

  • Support HSP, HF, A2DP and AVDTP
  • Implements SBC codec and MP3 decoder specified in A2DP
  • Interoperates with both Bluetooth cell phones and A2DP enabled audio devices
  • Efficient power management for low-power operation
  • Incorporates audio playback at 16 bit, 44.1 KHz (max) for HiFi

Package

  • Abe BT 80C Bluetooth Cassette
  • User manual
  • Blister

Hong Kong-based In-Tech Electronics have't given any price or availability nor they offer any direct sales but the concept looks interesting, especially for cars as long as most cars don't support Bluetooth.

Now I/we need:

  1. Smartphones with A2DP support
  2. Pocket PCs with A2DP support
  3. The rumored iPod with Bluetooth support (which I'm sure will support A2DP if it becomes reality)
  4. for sure theAbe BT 80C Bluetooth Stereo Cassette

Cheers ~ Arne

How's the sound quality?  What makes this better than a radio transmitter?

Posted by Radu on 24.02.05 - 13:01:45

[1]  Well i dont have this product but i guess the quality of the sound comes from the fact that the sound over BT goes digital. So the quality should not be altered in this sending process.

[1] The fact that it use Bluetooth not publicly FM makes it better by itself. I have a FM transmitter for my iPod but it gives me a hard time to find a free channel. Basically - in my area - all FM frequencies are occupied by regular radio stations and therefore I always have a flaky sound.
Bluetooth shouldn't be disturbed at all.

The quality problem can come from magnetic head. In the past I have tried this type of setup with a CD player and the tape inserted in the car stereo and the quality is not the same as if the cd player is connected directly to the aux input the the stereo.

It probably is better than the FM interface, but still not good for quality.

That's the question, indeed. I never got a feedback from them nor I have ever seen it on sale.
Personally I don't think it's available at all. sad
