ZXuiTape

The Digital Tape Alternative for ZX Spectrum

What it does

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, copy it to the sd card and the rest is straight forward. While it was designed for a 48K+ and a version for the 128K Toastrack  the standalone version can work with any spectrum. And for those that have built-in cassette we sell a cassette converter for the standalone version.  Watch this demo video , click >HERE<

What you need to know

If you opt for it we provide an audio cable and powerspliiter or a USB cable but you will need a power source for the USB. 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.  Be careful when using the powersplitter. Make sure if you are using an old non-regulated PSU to plug in the Spectrum first. Never plug in the ZXuiTape into a non-regulated PSU by its self. This may cause the PSU to blow.  There are different options :
1) for the 48K+ (USB+audio) £34.99
2) for the 48K+ (no cable) £32.99
3) for the 48K+ (Powersplitter+audio) £39.99
4) for the 48K+ (no cables) £37.99
5) for the 128K toastrack (Powersplitter+audio) £41.99
