Samsung Electronics America, Inc. expands its YEPP Digital Audio Player line with the introduction of two new digital audio players, the YP-T5H and the YP-T5V. The new models are the latest in Samsung's series of products intended for the music lover who wants the ultimate in style and portability.
"Both of these flash-memory players are designed for consumers who want an easy way to organize and manage their digital music collections in a small, stylish package that delivers higher quality audio playback typically lost with compressed audio files. The ability to double as a multi-file storage device is an added benefit for those who wish to take presentations, homework or even images with them in addition to their music," says Mark Farish, Marketing Manager, Samsung Electronics America.
Available in two sizes (128 MB for the YP-T5H and 256 MB for the YP-T5V) these models offer multi-format compatibility for MP3, WMA, WAV and upgradeable firmware files with SRS WOW sound technology, a built-in FM tuner, and voice recording for capturing lectures or your next great idea wherever you happen to be. The text viewer LCD comes in a choice of seven different colors and the built-in Lyric Auto Sync Display (LDB) provides an automatic link to a lyric database web server for display on the player.
Housed in a 23 x 54 x 23 mm case and weighing 24g (0.85oz, without battery), both models also double as removable storage devices that offer fast file transfer with a direct USB adapter. One AAA battery will provide up to 15 hours of playback and both models come with a necklace enabling the unit to be worn around the neck for added accessibility and convenience.
The Samsung YP-T5H (MSRP $129.99) and the YP-T5V (MSRP $179.99) will be available at consumer electronics retailers nationwide by May 2004.
