The built-in Bluetooth® also lets you enjoy hands-free calling and wireless streaming audio. You can still kick it old school by listening to radio broadcasts using the built-in AM/FM tuner..
Your music options
You may know that Bluetooth lets you talk hands-free in your car, but it also allows you to stream music from your smartphone. Android® users can listen and control Pandora® Internet Radio stations via Bluetooth, as well as play the music you've stored on your phone. You iPhone® users can also enjoy Pandora and songs you've imported by using the front-panel USB input.
The Brisbane's USB input also lets you play your MP3 and WMA music stored on a thumb drive or your iPod. Got more music on an SD card? No problem, you can slide your card in the Brisbane's SD slot behind the faceplate. You can also plug in your portable audio device, like a high-res digital music player, using the receiver's front aux input.
Simply great sound
With three EQ presets, you can tailor the sound to your preferences, and this Blaupunkt's beefy 22 watts per channel will make your speakers sound more dynamic.
