Broadview, IL (10/9/07) — Blaupunkt, the car electronics division of Robert Bosch corporation, has introduced a pair of high-end car radios designed to function with USB-based storage devices to allow users access to an entire library of digital audio files. The Kingston MP47 and Hamburg MP57 each feature four powerful amplification channels, high quality tuners, and CD transports that include support for CD-based MP3 or WMA files. The Hamburg MP57 also features integrated Bluetooth capability, with an included microsphone, for wireless hands-free cell phone operation. This capability can can be added to the Kingston MP47 with the addition of the company’s optional Bluetooth module.

For the digital-savvy consumer, the Blaupunkt Kingston MP47 and Hamburg MP57 each feature a rear-panel USB input with included cable, that is intended for use with an external hard-drive or other storage device. This feature lets owners access their entire digital music library from the radios’ attractive flip-up removable front panels, or import digital pictures for the full-graphic display of the Hamburg MP57. Both radios include 3.5mm front panel inputs for use with portable music devices, and each is also compatible with the company’s optional iPod interface.

The Kingston MP47 and Hamburg MP57 boast four powerful channels of amplification, each capable of delivering 45 watts of power. Acoustic performance can be individually tailored to suit car interiors and listener taste with a three-band parametric equalizer, as well as Blaupunkt X-Bass control. Full four-channel pre-outs, subwoofer output, and a second auxiliary input on the rear panel of each makes it simple to expand a car audio system with additional sources or amplification.

The Blaupunkt Hamburg MP57 features an attractive black-on-white backlit dot matrix display with three-line browsing of ID3 tag info and compatibility with JPEG image files. It is currently available at a suggested retail price of $319.95.
