If you're looking for MP3 player innovation that delivers feature-rich functionality and unsurpassed audiophile quality, the Nomad Jukebox 3 is the player for you. The Jukebox 3 offers audio quality that makes other players sound pale and lifeless by comparison. With the leading audio specifications in its category, even the toughest critic will be delighted by its crystalline clarity. Add to this a suite of powerful music-management and audio functions, and you're set to tailor your musical experience through an easy-to-use interface with intuitive scrolling file navigation.
The Nomad Jukebox 3 connects to everything audio: it works with PCs and stereos and other devices to let you transfer, store, and even record at will--analog and optical digital line inputs allow direct high-quality recording from external audio devices. Top it off with a massive 20 GB storage with both USB and SB1394/FireWire connectivity, and you can listen to your favorite music anytime, anywhere. The unit holds up to 333 hours of MP3s encoded at 128 Kbps, or an incredible 8,000 songs encoded in WMA at 80 Kbps. Store your entire music library (and other files) in a compact package that's completely portable.
The unit's second battery bay gives you up to 22 hours of uninterrupted playback with two lithium-ion rechargeable batteries (or 11 hours using only one). Smart Volume Management (SVM) normalizes audio output to compensate for different mastering levels between songs, while time scaling lets you speed up or slow down playback without distortion. Finally, anti-skip protection extends to seven minutes of buffering for smooth listening.
