The FiiO CP13 is a portable cassette player with a simple design, big buttons, and a very basic feature set. First unveiled during CES, the cassette player does have a few modern touches including a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and a USB-C port. But it’s very much an analog audio device: it doesn’t support MP3s or music streaming, and doesn’t support WiFi or Bluetooth.
FiiO began selling the CP13 in late January, with pre-order pricing as low as $100 for the first 200 customers who ordered from AliExpress. The CP13 is now out of stock at FiiO’s AliExpress store, but a second batch is expected to go on sale in March. The company has begun shipping the cassette player to customers though, and the first reviews have begun to appear online.
YouTuber ANA[DIA]LOG has one of the most detailed reviews so far, which includes a comparison with the other high-profile (and stylish) modern portable cassette player: a $164 model from a company called We Are Rewind.
