JVC Alneo V80 Player

JVC today upgraded its media players and added its new Alneo V-series to its player mix. Each of the players builds in a technology named K2 that automatically oversamples compressed audio to 24-bit, 96kHz sound and makes the most of the available sound detail; newly designed noise canceling earbuds not only adapt to block outside noise but team up with different environment settings on the player itself to optimize the sound for a given setting.

The new Alneos are badged as full media players and play WMV videos at the two-inch LCD's native 320x240 resolution. Audio itself is limited to MP3, WAV, and WMA tracks but includes protected WMA songs from music stores. Battery life averages at about 25 hours of music depending on the choice of sound format, according to JVC.

A launch is scheduled for early July in JVC's home territory of Japan, where versions of the player will come under the Victor label with 2GB (V20), 4GB (V40), and 8GB (V80) of storage and color options of black, blue, red, or white. JVC has no immediate plans to export the Alneo to the Americas by itself. [via Impress]
