Panasonic today announced its newest addition to its line of D-dock mini sound systems, with the SC-NS570SD. The system is equipped with an SD card slot for file playback, and it also has the ability to rip CDs at up to 8 times playback speeds to SD cards in the AAC format. Rated at 15W for each of its twin speakers, the system will play MP3, AAC or WMA-encoded CDs, or broadcast programs via its AM/FM tuner.
Panasonic D-Snap Mar 2008
Panasonic today expanded its D-Snap line with a new player and stereos to match. The SD870N is billed as one of the longest-lived digital audio players and boosts the run time from an already long 80 hours in the SD850 to 100 hours. With the line's signature active noise cancelation turned on to block 83 percent of outside sound, the player still runs for 60 hours, Panasonic estimates. The updated player also comes with a larger 2GB SD card to store more music out of the box and headroom for up to a 16GB SDHC card.
