NextDuino (ZX spectrum Next/NGO, 16k, 48k, 128k, 2,3 version)

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. 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 built-in cassettes, we sell a cassette converter for the standalone version.  The XL Screen is approx twice the surface area of the normal screen.

This is the same as the ZXuitape device except in the Spectrum Next style. It runs Maxduino.  The reason you'd want one with a Spectrum Next is when you don't have a Pi Zero installed or you want to load multi-load games like R-type. 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. It requires a MINI-A USB power source. If you want to use the DC jack you need 6-9v positive center psu.
