NextDuino (ZX spectrum Next, 16k, 48k, 128k, 2,3 version)
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 favorite 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 straight forward. This is the standalone version that can work with any spectrum. And for those that have built-in cassette, we sell a cassette converter for the standalone version.
This is the same as the ZXuitape device except in the style of a Spectrum Next. It runs Maxduino. For older Sinclair machines it makes it a bit more sense. The only 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.
