Blaupunkt’s Car Radio Deck Is A Nostalgic Analog Masterpiece

If you’re a fan of old school radio decks, you’re not alone. Growing up in the era of analog audio gives way to a certain type of nostalgia; in those days, nothing beat a quick scroll through your favorite stations, pressing the rewind button on one of your go-to eight-track tapes, or tuning into your preferred AM talk show. Those days might be long gone, but they don’t have to be.

In typical Blaupunkt fashion, the company has decided to rekindle our love for “the classic” with a radio deck named the Bremen SQR 46 — a beautifully-refined example that was originally introduced all the way back in 1986. The deck’s subtle black facade gives way to a bevy of traditional dials, including FM/AM presets, bass and treble balancers, and a tasteful faux module that mimics a cassette entry. It’s outfitted with all of the pleasantries found in modern decks, including a DAB+ tuner, USB/SDHC audio inputs, and Bluetooth, so you can pair it with your favorite streaming peripherals while on-the-road. Better yet, the player’s compact single-DIN design means that it’ll fit into most vehicles without any alternative fabrication, making it an attractive proposition for buyers who are looking to secure a hefty slice of analog nostalgia. The Bremen SQR 46 can be found on Blaupunkt’s website for $500.

Purchase: $500
