Philips Stereo to Offer Bluetooth, Mp3 Ripping
August 24th, 2007
According to papers recently filed with the FCC, Philips is getting set to release a bookshelf stereo that can be wirelessly paired with Bluetooth sound sources.
In addition to the requisite AM/FM/CD/MP3 capabilities, the Philips BTM288 stereo system will be able to connect to mobile phones and media devices via Bluetooth. According to a snippet from the draft User Manual, the stereo will allow both speakerphone calling and wireless audio playback from connected devices.
The stereo can also rip CD, MP3 and WMA tracks from either a disc or a Bluetooth device to a USB storage device or to an SD/MMC memory card.
Philips hasn’t yet announced a price or release date for the system.
