One very happy customer took delivery of her new Audio Machines Singer Sewing Machine Bluetooth Speaker yesterday!
Currently on the workbench we've got a cute little 1960s Perdio "Challenge" C306 transistor radio. It's only got Long Wave and Medium Wave but sounds great, and the simplicity of the crude circuit-board has made figuring out where to inject our Bluetooth adapter output very easy!
