The BB16 is a new Boombox model from the wide selection of Blaupunkt products. Take the sounds of your favourite songs anywhere you like with this portable 3-in-1 player combo, made to support a variety of audio formats. You can listen to CDs or FM radio stations, or play music directly from a USB flash drive or any other external audio source which can be connected via an AUX socket. This model also features a cassette tape deck, enabling you to play back analogue recordings made on audio cassettes.
The BB16 supports all types of audio CDs, finalised MP3 CD-Rs, and CD-RWs. The player has a fast selection function for CDs with more than 10 tracks, which is particularly useful for music playback from a long list of MP3 files recorded on a single disc. You can navigate between folders to quickly access the tune you want to play, or set up your own play list – for a regular audio CD, you can programme a playing sequence containing up to 20 tracks, or as many as 99 MP3 files. The BB16 offers a shuffle function, as well as a repeat play function for the continuous playback of single tracks, folders or entire CDs. The Intro function allows you to play the first 10 seconds of each track recorded on the disc.
The player has an integrated FM tuner, with up to 40 radio presets. You can scan radio stations and store them in a favourites list, either automatically or manually. In the manual mode, you can choose the preset number you wish to use for the respective favourite.
The BB16 has a USB port for connecting storage devices containing MP3 files. The player will automatically decode and play files recorded on the USB flash drive. The play functions are exactly the same as those available for CDs.
This boombox is one of the very few available on the market which include a cassette player, allowing you to enjoy music, audiobooks, and any other analogue recordings made on audio cassettes. The built-in recording capability enables recording radio broadcasts or any other audio from the CD player or a USB device.
The back panel of the housing features an AUX jack for connecting devices with analogue audio outputs. Simply connect your device to the player and enjoy significantly better sound quality.
The headphone jack – positioned next to the AUX port – allows you to connect optional headphones to ensure a rich and detailed, but at the same time discreet, sound experience.
The BB16 has a built-in amplifier with a total power output of 3 W RMS, and can be powered from the mains or with 6 replaceable batteries, so you can enjoy your music wherever you are – whether you’re listening at home or while you’re out and about.
