Alba Timeshift MP3 Player

Alba today hopes to offer a more advanced flash music player named the PRDAB210MP3. Instead of using FM radio as a secondary feature, the Alba tunes the digital audio broadcast (DAB) stations popular in Europe. As with satellite radio in North America, the digital nature of the stream gives finer control over playback, according to Alba: an owner can scrub back or forwards through a station's broadcast as well as record sessions for posterity. Up to 20 station presets can be held for quicker access.

For use outside of radio, the Alba player can also play back existing MP3 and WMA songs, including protected files from Napster and other online stores. Power is supplied through a single AA battery, which lasts for 14 hours of continuous DAB radio or 50 hours of pre-recorded music. Online retailer Argos sells the jukebox for $167.
