Household appliances are very diverse. And if the idea of TVs, refrigerators or even gas stoves people have a good, then there are still relatively little-known types of equipment. It’s time to learn everything about audioomagnets.
It is natural to start with finding out what audomagnetol is. Such a term is called a radio electron apparatus, which contains both a tape recorder and radio. Usually it is used to listen to music and essential gears at home or in the car. Along with the two main components, there may be other additional devices in audio magnets.
That is why this technique is divided into a number of more private types, depending on the functionality and the element base.
First you should talk about what boambox is. This portable type of audio equipment differs little, in fact, from standard radio. But he must have large speakers, allowing to significantly increase the volume of sound. The tape recorder in the boomocus of modern samples is met less. This is due to the sunset of tape recorder as such.
Early boomboxes appeared in the 1970s. But the real flourishing they survived only in the 1980s. Nowadays, the peak of popularity of such devices remained far behind.
As for stereomagnetola, it differs from other models only by the fact that it makes not monophonic, and stereo sound. Other practical features can be very different depending on the design plan and the common task.
IMPORTANT: A full-fledged stereo recording cannot be reproduced through a single speaker. This sharply limits the scope of application of the radio with one built-in column.
Both home and portable (automotive) devices today most often refer to CD-magnetol category. Between them, however, may be a significant difference. Sometimes the number of disks that can be simultaneously downloaded.
This circumstance pays attention more often when choosing not portable, and intended for home Audiomagnetola. However, in this segment, changer lose gradually their relevance.
Much more in demand models with a USB port where you can insert a flash drive with MP3 files. Some modifications are able to even reproduce some other audio data formats.
It is worth noting that almost all modern models work with Bluetooth.
This mode allows you to get audio files from smartphones, laptops and even personal computers. You can apply devices and in a bundle with some other gadgets that support Bluetooth data transmission mode. The most portable models – based on Flash memory. And in the combined versions almost necessarily there is an SD card connector. It is also worth saying about audio gauges with a remote control, which makes everyday life much more convenient.
How to choose?
Of course, you need to pay attention to devices with good sound. It is better to learn about his quality on reviews of several independent sites. It is also useful to find out which radio range is laid constructively, how well the built-in tuner works. But a purely appearance of the device has great importance. If there is only one speaker, the radio can only publish “flat”, not high quality, sound.
For lovers, retro will definitely suit auditagnets that can reproduce traditional cassettes. If there is a disc player, then you need to specify the range of reproducible disks. Some devices lose only CD. In more advanced modifications, you can also reproduce DVD. But the most convenient option for all people – Flash drives and various memory cards.
Advanced models are capable of working with 2-20 laser disks. To switch between media, use buttons or control panels. In expensive audio magnets, not only Bluetooth, but also NFC. Returning to CD players, it is worth emphasizing that the highest quality CD-DA format strongly limits the number of recorded tracks. Therefore, if there are no special requirements for the purity of the sound, you need to use devices that reproduce MP3 or WMA.
It is important to pay attention to the characteristics of the tuner (more precisely, the range of received frequencies). For home use is quite enough FM band. For travel on long-distance trails and hard-to-reach places, you need to choose audio gauges taking average waves (AM). Despite the fall in the popularity of the VHF frequency, the presence of this range can only be welcomed. And for those who want to take signals of foreign radio stations, it is necessary to focus on the models working in the shortwave range.
Analog tuners are almost hopelessly outdated; You should buy only devices with digital receivers.
Still need to consider:
- Power type;
- speaker volume;
- the presence of a connector for headphones;
- the ability to record an ether signal for interchangeable carriers;
- the presence of a microphone, hours, light indicators;
- device design;
- presence or absence of equalizer;
- Presence of handle or belt belt;
- Karaoke function.
Certainly, it deserves places in the ranking of the audio magnetization of the current year CD-radio Telefunken TF-CSRP3448. The manufacturer declares that the device can work out the entire audible range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The system fully supports MP3. Only 1 CD can be downloaded to the container. The dimensions of the monochrome screen are 0.02×0.03 m.
Good alternative can be considered LUMAX BL 9259 USB. This device issues a sound with a power of 5 W. Power is possible both from the network and the batteries. Other features:
- telescopic antenna;
- digital tuner with memory for 30 stations;
- frequency range from 64 to 108 MHz;
- blue display illumination;
- red or black color.
Getting acquainted with boomboxes, it is worth paying attention to Sony ZS-PS50 Black. The device supports the playback of CDs. But the memory card cannot be lost. Shared acoustic power is 4 W. Bluetooth Mode No.
If you need to choose elite retro boomboxes, then it is worth mentioning the legendary JVC RC-M90. Part of the experts considers this model in general the best boombox in the history of audio equipment. The problem is only in one – even sophisticated collectors do not always find such a device.
It is very expensive, if only because it is no longer done for a long time. But the flavor of an impressive and attractive externally boombox is exactly worth such sums.
Among the portable radio tape recorder with a decent sound and radio receiver must first consider Hyundai H-PAS180 / H-PAS200. This Korean product is always collectively collectively. It is quite easy to manage it thanks to the thoughtful execution.
But it is worth noting that the charging connector is not reliable enough. The power of the front speakers – 2×3 W, besides there is an electronic watch. Reviews of such a model are certainly positive.
A pleasant alternative can be considered FIRST FA-1154-3. The magnetol was equipped with a digital tuner, steadily operating in AM and FM bands. You can play a signal from USB, from microSD cards. Supports CD-R discs, CD-RW, including those on which MP3 files are recorded. Aux and typical 3.5 mm on headphones are provided.
- Net weight 1.3 kg;
- Value 0.22×0.23 m;
- meals from both batteries and home power grid.
There is a place and portable radio tape recorder in ranking Phillips – or rather, AZ318 models. Constructively implemented support CD, MP3 and USB. Carrying facilitated in small sizes. Digital Tuner Exercise Only Value FM Range. All the necessary information is displayed on the built-in display.
Lovers of the classic “black and white” design will accurately like Supra BB-M102ub. This radio, despite the old-fashioned appearance, provides a Bluetooth block. But, unfortunately, there is no connector for headphones.
Thanks to the lithium-ion battery, uninterrupted operation is guaranteed within 3 hours. You can recharge the built-in USB Cable Battery.
4 times heavier will be Panasonic RX-D55 – But this severity is fully justified. The device receives FM / AM signals range. It can reproduce the sound directly from USB flash drives. Traditional CD player is used. Autonomous food is possible due to 8 batteries of class C.
Important technical features:
- full-fledged digital tuner;
- total acoustic power 20 W;
- frequency band from 0.04 to 20 kHz;
- the ability to play tape recorder cassettes;
- liquid crystal display;
- Remote Control Option with Special Console.
