New JVC audio players
The Japanese division of JVC has announced the release of two new small-size digital audio players. While compact and available in colors including blue, black, pink, red and white, the main attractions of the XA-S108 and XA-S206 are changes to their ports and interface. Whereas many such players are limited to recording voice and FM radio, the new JVC models have the addition of a line-in jack -- giving the option of recording from TVs, CD players and many other electronics.
The interface has now been simplified to use a menu with three categories, and its file browser is said to be similar to that used in iRiver's popular players. The S108 holds 1GB and costs $124; the S206 has 2GB and costs $155. [via Akihabara News]
