Add to that the ability to play MP3 and WMA files (and it doesn’t matter what storage medium they are on), plus FM and DAB tuners, as well as a slot-loading CD player and you can see why Australian distributor Synery Audio Visual is already fielding calls about the unit.
It is the little things it does right that are making people sit up and take a look, such as it s energy-efficient display that can be dimmed, plus it uses three-way binding posts for speaker connections rather than spring clips.
Selling for three hundred pounds in the UK means it will probably retail for under $1,000 here, but the local distributor has yet to set a price.
