Sony has added Bluetooth (A2DP) to the traditional micro Hi-Fi system, producing the CMT-U1BT, which offers playback from your Bluetooth-enabled portable audio player, mobile phone or personal computer at a click of a button. And if you haven’t got a Bluetooth-enabled gadget, Sony is offering you a solution to that – a free two way A2DP Bluetooth ‘Dongle’.
The system is compatible with all commonly used file types and music management software such as SonicStage, iTunes, or Windows Media player. Press ‘play’ on your gadget and the system will pick up the music and relay it through the S-Master digital amplifier. The system also features USB slot if you want to plug in a USB-friendly device to access your tunes – and to get it charged at the same time. As a Hi-Fi, it offers 2x 25 watts of RMS output, CD playback (also MP3 or Atrac playback from CDR/RW discs), AM/FM radio and a full remote control.
Expect it in the stores in the coming weeks, no news yet on price.
