Rio Carbon - MP3 Player

The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player is a good compromise between large hard drive and flash based MP3 players. It comes with a 5GB hard drive which is enough to hold 1250 songs in 128 kbps MP3 format. You have to wonder why anybody needs a 20GB MP3 player -- 1250 songs is enough to keep most people happy for years!

The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player is an attractive, sleek personal MP3 player which measures just 2.5 inches wide and 3.3 inches high. It is just over half an inch thick which makes it comfortable slip into any shirt or jeans pocket. The wedge-shape is comfortable to hold in your hand and the simple controls make one-hand navigation a snap.

The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player is equipped with a USB 2.0 interface, a built-in microphone, and a headphone jack. Volume is adjusted using the multipurpose directional pad which has a smooth, comfortable feel.

Attached to your computer through the USB 2.0 port, music files can be transferred quickly and easily. The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player comes with computer software for managing your music collection. You can use it to rip songs from CDs and to encode them in WMA or MP3 format. Music can be organized in any way you like -- by artist, album, genre, or year. There is full support for ID3 tags so information about the music is displayed as it plays.

You can also organize songs on the go, directly arranging play lists on the Rio Carbon - MP3 Player. Playback options include random playback, or you can select them by artist, album, or genre. There is even a function for playing back recently accessed songs -- you can choose songs that you've listened to in the last day, week, or month.

The Rio Carbon - digital MP3 Player is powered with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that offers up to 20 hours of continuous playback. The battery can be charged through the USB port or through the AC adapter.

The voice recording feature is handy for students and businesspeople who have to record meetings or lectures. The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player comes with a serviceable set of headphones -- they are not the greatest, and if you are like most people, you will buy your own set of aftermarket headphones.

This - MP3 Player is an impressive MP3 player. The sound is great, the interface is functional and the 5GB of storage is sure to meet the needs of all but the most demanding music lovers.
