Product Details

Blaupunkt Hamburg SQM 23 DAB retro 80's car radio with DAB, Bluetooth, USB, AUX etc.

The classic 80's car radio returns! The relaunched cult car radio Blaupunkt Hamburg SQM 23 DAB with many new features!

Over the years, some models have developed into true cult objects. This also applies to the legendary Blaupunkt Hamburg SQM 23 from 1983. Now we present the new interpretation of the popular 1-DIN car radio and combine the design of the 80s model with new technologies and functions. The result is the Blaupunkt Hamburg SQM 23 DAB.

Its operating concept, simple design and crystal-clear reception contributed significantly to the popularity of the original Hamburg car radio. For the new edition, we adopted the styling of the original model, but at the same time gave the radio modern multicolour lighting for the LCD display. The key labels, which were then still illuminated with light bulbs, are now being replaced by modern and durable warm white LEDs. This lighting can also be activated via the vehicle lighting when the car radio is switched off.

Thanks to the Blaupunkt Codem FM RDS tuner and DAB+ digital tuner, first-class reception remains a strength of the new Youngtimer car radio. New are the multimedia interfaces for modern Apple® devices and USB mass storage media for playing music or charging mobile phones. The Blaupunkt Hamburg also supports Bluetooth® audio streaming from apps such as a music player or streaming service such as Spotify on the mobile phone.

With the help of the voice assistant on the mobile phone (such as Siri, Google or Alexa) the mobile phone can be accessed without having to pick it up. Of course, hands-free calling is also supported.

So that an audio source such as USB, Apple iPod or Bluetooth can be selected directly, a button on the device can be programmed via the menu to start your favourite source. The device settings are permanently saved, even if the battery is disconnected – even if this is no longer necessary thanks to the minimised standby power consumption to protect the battery.

The new Blaupunkt Hamburg SQM 23 DAB has a short installation depth – ideal for classic cars with shortened installation shafts. But it’s not just the car radio itself that takes the user on a journey through time, the packaging of the device was also elaborately designed and modelled on the original.

NOTE: This radio does not play CDs.
