ZXuiTape (ZX spectrum 16k, 48k, 128k, 2,3 version, ZX80, ZX81)

Approx 5-7 days in the UK. Can take a few weeks outside of the UK.

It is used to play TZX files (games and apps) from a MicroSD card through an audio cable into where the tape deck would normally plugin, thus eliminating the need for a 30-year-old tape deck. Its a play only function so no record feature. You can still record using conventional methods, though. Simply find your favourite game or app in TZX or TAP file format commonly used by ZX81 and ZX Spectrum Computers, copy it to the sd card and the rest is straightforward. This is the standalone version that can work with any spectrum. And for those that have the built-in cassette, we sell a cassette converter for the standalone version.  Now with mostly SMD components.

If you opt for it we provide an audio cable and a USB cable but you will need a power source for the USB or a 6-9v adapter. Any will do since it doesn’t require a great deal of power to run.  When purchasing a microSD card do not get a cheap or a super-fast one like a class 10 card. Look for a class 4, 6, or 8. If you don't want to buy one of our USB cables it requires a MINI-A USB power source.

Please note that firmware also supports other (TO DATE)  all maxduino supported file formats and can be used with other computers like MSX.
