Despite the fact that technologies are moving forward with great speed, their development is characterized by some cyclical nature. Judge for yourself: after the appearance of vinyl, several generations of more modern audio carriers have changed, but "record" music not only has not died - but in fact is experiencing a rebirth, given how many players have appeared on the market recently.
The same thing, albeit on a smaller scale, is slowly happening with magnetic cassettes. Still, people miss the warm “hiss” characteristic of this format. So the appearance of Mixxtape and similar players was only a matter of time. True, the device of the developers from Mixxim differs from almost all of their own kind.
Mixxtape is a digital player that can be used as a magnetic cassette tape. It looks appropriate, and everything is exactly as you thought: if you wish, you can shove it into an old tape recorder - and the songs stored in the device's memory will sound.
But you can also listen to Mixxtape simply by plugging in headphones - otherwise it is, by and large, not much different from other compact music players. The "cassette" even has a small touch screen to control all its functions and Bluetooth - to pair it with wireless headphones or a speaker. Many formats are supported, from MP3 and WAV to AAC, and the authors promise true HiFi sound to contributors. You can use memory cards up to 64 gigabytes, and the Mixxtape comes with an 8 GB flash drive.
According to the developers, their player will be able to continuously play music for 12 hours, and fully charge in just an hour.
The creators position their development as an ideal gift for any music lover, and not just as a toy "for romantics and hipsters." The best part is that such a miracle is still only $ 40, which is half the price of its planned retail price. The unique player will arrive to customers in November.>
