Easily Update Ancient Stereos With ION Audio's Bluetooth Cassette

By Andrew Liszewski on at

You may have convinced your parents to upgrade to a smartphone or a tablet, but that monstrous ancient stereo system in their living room that served them well in the 1980s isn't going anywhere. Thankfully, ION Audio's new Cassette Adapter Bluetooth is an easy way to get their old and modern technology to work in harmony.

It's all but guaranteed that your parents know how to use an audio cassette, and that's about as difficult as this rechargeable wireless adapter gets. The Bluetooth receiver automatically turns on and connects to a phone or tablet when it's inserted into a boombox or a car stereo, and then switches itself off when it's ejected.

It can also transmit phone calls; turning an outdated cassette deck into a hands-free device for driving. And while availability and pricing haven't been revealed yet, it's safe to assume this adapter will be a lot cheaper than replacing your parent's beloved sound system. [ION Audio]
