A classic beauty
Blaupunkt'sToronto 420 BT CD receiver really catches the eye with its classic lines and traditional two-knob layout. But its old school looks won't keep you in the dark when you're driving — the bright white 15-digit scrolling display keeps you in the loop on song and system information, while the simple controls allow you to access an extensive list of features. And beneath the striking exterior, you'll find a modern car stereo that's all about performance.
Bluetooth makes drive time better
Once you've got Bluetooth in your car, it's hard to imagine how you managed without it. With the Toronto, you can answer calls with the touch of a button, and speak as if your caller were sitting next to you. The front panel features a built-in microphone, but you can purchase Blaupunkt's optional external microphone for optimal performance in convertibles or other noisy vehicles. Plus, you'll get wireless audio streaming from your Bluetooth devices too — eliminating the need to plug in your devices when you get in the car.
More ways to enjoy your music
The Toronto features both front and rear USB inputs, giving you plenty of options for hooking up an iPhone®, iPod®, or thumb drive. You can control your playlists and song selection from the receiver when your iPhone/iPod is connected, so you won't have to pick up your device to find your favorite tunes. Of course, you can play your favorite CDs, including discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files. The front-panel auxiliary input accommodates most other audio sources, while an SDHC card slot behind the face gives you one more option for bringing your music along.
The Toronto includes a powerful amp that delivers 22 watts per channel to your speakers, complemented by a 3-band equalizer that'll shape the sound to match your car and your style. A full set of preamp outputs with subwoofer level controls make it easier to expand and control your system.
