Released January, 2008
The Pros:Audio output quality is very good, makes the most of OEM speakers. Fills out gaps in compressed audio, sounds rich and full. Display is bright enough to be read in any light.
The Cons:Display is tiny, only 11 characters across. Controls seem randomly laid out, take a long time to get used to. Volume knob is shared with other controls, easy to select and adjust the wrong thing.
