Orion Bluetooth Cassette Tape Player-Recorder

Vintage-style music player and radio

Anyone over 40 will greet the appearance of the Orion Bluetooth Cassette Tape Player-Recorder with mixed feelings: the upside is that something from their past (a cassette player and recorder) has reappeared; the downside is that so many years have passed that is has completely disappeared – and reappeared! This 317 x 89 x 114 mm (12.5 x 3.5 x 4.5") audio device seems like something made decades ago, but it's not. Because the player-recorder has some features that certainly weren't around back in the 1980s!

Yes, the Orion Bluetooth Cassette Tape Player-Recorder plays cassette tapes and also AM and FM radio using an analog tuner. But when it's time to record, it records as 128 kbps, 48 kHz MP3 files, and it also plays MP3 files from a 32 GB or smaller USB stick or 32 GB or smaller SDHC card. And because it's Bluetooth-compatible, you can pair it with your phone and listen to your music. So yes, this is a vintage-style cassette player that works on household batteries but was very much born in and for the 21st century!
