Panasonic Unveils New SD Audio Players and SD Micro Stereo Systems

Panasonic introduced today new D-snap SD digital audio players, the SV-SD800N and SV-SD400V, and two D-dock SD micro stereo systems, the SC-SX850 and SC-SX450. The new D-snap audio players work in tandem with the new D-dock micro stereo systems to offer automatic pick up and fast recharging. By placing the new D-snap audio player in a D-dock stereo port, users can listen to a music sequence from the point of pausing without restarting from the beginning. The docking function also enables quick recharging. A 10-minute recharge can run the players for three hours. When fully charged, the players can continuously play up to 30 hours.

The SV-SD800N and SV-SD400V audio players come with closed-type insidephones that are shaped to fit into the ears perfectly so that they simultaneously shut out noise and prevent sound leaks. The earphones for the SV-SD800N feature noise cancellers that reduce ambient noise.

The two models support the new SD high capacity (SDHC) specifications. When a 4 GB SDHC card - the largest capacity currently available - is used, up to 66 hours and 29 minutes of music or 999 songs can be stored in the 128 kbps mode. The new audio players come with a 128 MB SD Memory Cards.

They also offer "zapping" playback of the songs, enabling users to check newly recorded songs easily. Users can zap through the climaxes of all new songs recorded on the SD Memory Card. The players are compact (35.1 x 86.9 x 10.2 mm) and light-weight (38.5 g with the battery).

The SC-SX850 D-dock stereo system has a 160 GB built-in hard disk drive, while the SC-SX450 has an 80 GB one. The two micro stereos offer the copying capability of 12X speed from the CD to HDD. They can also transfer the data at up to 16X speed from the HDD to SD Memory Card.

These two new stereos can automatically identify and input song titles recorded in the analog mode. The stereos incorporate a database of 350,000 album titles so that users can obtain title information without accessing to the Internet.

The four new SD audio products will be available on September 8 in Japan.
