The H10 [5GB pure] is from the same mould as the H10 [5GB] and features a colour display, touchpad, aluminum casing, space for 2500 songs and perfect sound quality
Eschborn, August 25, 2005. The leading provider of forward-looking portable audio and video solutions in the digital entertainment segment, has now rolled out a fully-fledged pocket jukebox for those who prefer a “personal music mix on the go”. By removing the built-in FM tuner, iriver has eliminated the considerably steeper import duty on radio equipment and passed the savings directly on to customers — but definitely not at the expense of high-end audio enjoyment and elegant design.
The H10 [5GB pure] weights a mere 96 grams and packs a crystal-clear 1.5″ color LCD into this ultra-compact 95 x 54 x 15 mm model. In conjunction with a built-in vertical touchpad, the display provides an ingeniously simple user interface. Supporting 260,000 colors, the LCD/MP3 player combination is also the ideal way to view your photos to music on the move. A clock/alarm function, a built-in microphone for voice recording and a removable, rechargeable battery for up to 12 hours playback time add the finishing touches to the H10[5GB pure].
A signal-to-noise ratio of 90 dB, a perfectly balanced frequency response and the Sennheiser earphones included in the scope of delivery add up to a sensational music experience for even the most discerning audiophiles. Thirty equaliser presets give the perfect sound for every style of music. And for audio enthuasists, a manual equaliser enables the sound to be customised to the users exact requirements. Multi-codec playback guarantees support for a variety of formats, including MP3, WMA and ASF. Support for the TXT format also lets pocket jukebox users enjoy e books and read other text files on the brilliant display.
An optional docking station for the H10 [5GB pure] can be attached via a line-in to external audio sources, thereby enabling real-time MP3 encoding. The iriver H10 [5GB pure] is fully intergrated with Microsoft Windows Media Player 10. Proven playback and music management functions combine with fast access to the Digital Media Hall to make modern entertainment child’s play. Users can browse through online shops in search of their favorite hits. Better still, support for the new Windows Media 10 DRM also leaves the new player well equipped for the future.
