UK-based newman radios has revitalized vintage radios bringing them up to date with bluetooth technology. the integrated feature enables one to play music through the iconic loudspeakers from a connected device. adapting the original circuit board, the transformation makes use of the existing speaker and control buttons leaving the classic design unaffected by cables or sockets. the experience of listening to favorite tunes from back in the day is enhanced when combined with such retro pieces as the sanyo ghetto blaster.
