Blaupunkt’s New Phoenix and Sacramento CD Head Units Feature Aggressive Styling and Optional MP3 Playback

Blaupunkt has introduced two new models in its value-oriented V-Line of car stereos.

The Sacramento CD33 CD receiver is priced at $259 (US), and offers 50 Watts of power into each of four channels. It features Blaupunkt’s high quality standard CD transport, and it can be used in conjunction with a Blaupunkt CD changer to control up to 10 discs’ worth of music.

Like all Blaupunkt radios, the Sacramento also features a high-sensitivity tuner, including 18 FM and 12 AM presets. An optional credit-card remote allows you to control all major functions of the head unit from anywhere in the cockpit.

The front-panel ID3 display and included credit-card remote control make for easy navigation of MP3 files on Blaupunkt's Phoenix MP33 head unit

The Phoenix MP33 CD/MP3 receiver is priced at $349 (US). In addition to all the standard features of the Sacramento, the Phoenix is also fully compatible with CD-R/RW discs encoded with MP3 files.

The Phoenix has a faceplate ID3 tag display that shows artist and song title information embedded in MP3 files. Along with the included credit-card remote control, the ID3 display makes it easy to locate and select from as much as 10 hours of music on a single MP3 CD.

Each model delivers and features aggressive styling with flip down detachable faceplate, blue and red backlit buttons, and a three-color red/white/blue panel display.
