Amazon.com Product Description The palm-sized TrekStor vibez 12GB features a 1.5-inch full color TFT screen with non-slip casing and is powered by a long-life Lithium-ion rechargeable battery that provides up to 20 hours of play. The vibez is housed in a compact, stainless steel case with removable rear cover. This allows for easy low-cost replacement of the battery. The vibez can be upgraded to include an FM tuner (with an optional FM tuner card).



This elegant palm-sized MP3 player offers unique features, and a battery that delivers 20 hours of play.


Access the intuitive pop-up menu easily with the mounted scroll wheel.


The TrekStor features dynamic visualization modes as well as a unique VU Meter for audio output.
The TrekStor vibez supports MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG and FLAC files as well as WMA DRM (Digital Rights Management) 9 and 10 formats. This allows songs bought or rented over the Internet, such as Napster To Go, or songs downloaded from sites featuring WMA lossless formats, such as Music Giants, to be played without hassle. Additional features include a DJ Mode that automatically compiles playlists based on your taste (according to the number of times your saved songs have been played before) and four dynamic visualization effects to suit the music. Line-in recording enables you to record from an external source while speech may also be recorded using the integrated microphone. In order to take the hassle out of managing your music collection, TrekStor has bundled in Magix's MP3 Maker SE with every vibez.

Control of the TrekStor vibez is through a large rubberized scroll wheel that provides for quick and easy operation via a hierarchically structured pop-up menu. This menu enables quick and easy operation of the vibez despite its numerous features. In addition, the vibez features user-programmable buttons so you can program your most important functions for ease of operation.

At 200 MHz, the computing strength of vibez is so powerful that you can cross-fade two songs or automatically sort images according to their recorded data (EXIF). The high-speed USB 2.0 connection ensures that your images and songs will be transferred to vibez reliably and fast.

The vibez display, which features 176 x 132 pixels, can show the CD covers of the songs being played. The sort function of the JPEG viewer enables stored photos to be sorted on the vibez by camera model and image recording data.

The TrekStor vibez is available with a range of accessories: A cable remote control, a second set of earphones with independent volume control, a docking station with battery charger and infrared remote control which can be used to connect the vibez to separate speakers or a hi-fi system.

One that was worthy of the now mythical status of the best sounding DAP on the market.
R. Crowder
Putting music onto it is as easy as drag&drop, the player basically works like a flash drive that plays back music.

Only quibble is it is a little too easy to jostle the jog wheel, interrupting a currently playing track.

For those familiar with Rio Karma which was last made a few years ago, we have long waited for a successor. One that was worthy of the now mythical status of the best sounding DAP on the market. The VibeZ might just be that DAP.

The Rio Karma was way ahead of it's time with reguard to Sound Quality, ability to handle Multiple file formats, Gapless Playback, Crossfade playback and an incredible 6 band equalizer. Many DAP audiophiles still consider it second to none when it comes to sound quality. The chip set used in the Karma was made by Sigmatel. Trekstor has created the VibeZ using the same chip set and Rio Karma like firmware. The result is fantastic!

The Pros:

Sound Quality - It's incredible Deep, Full, Rich and very detailed. Very quiet compared to Rio Karma.

Power - Second only to the Karma, will easily drive all but the most demanding cans. Any IEM's (In Ear Monitors) and portable cans will sing when connected to the VibeZ. By demanding I'm talking the likes of the Sennhieser HD-600's which really open up when connected VibeZ + portable amp. I use a Pimeta with AD8620's that I built.

Equalizer - 6 band parametric equalizer allows tweaking sound to fit each set of cans or genre of music. Each setup can be saved off as a preset and selected from the menu the next time you want that sound.

Playback options - You name it it's here. DJ Random mix, works like shuffle of all tracks on the player to shuffle up tracks in 15 minute incriments up to 8 hr's or unlimited. You can choose to playback songs that haven't been played for x amount of days, playback by Genre, Era, most played tracks etc.

Cons:

Navigation Wheel - The navigation wheel takes a little time to get used to. It is a unique as the player.

This is not really a review it's advice on how to fix a problem.

My Windows XP computer was unable to detect this device. I got the message

There was a problem installing this hardware: MTP Device

An error occurred during the installation of the device

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

There is very little troubleshooting info online. I emailed tech support and got this answer which fixed the problem for me. I just thought I'd save people the hassle by sharing it.

Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) is a new protocol and set of drivers developed by Microsoft to connect portable devices to a Windows PC and synchronize digital media content between those devices and the PC. MTP is geared toward portable devices with hard drives; flash-based devices will continue to use Mass Storage Class (MSC), a broadly supported protocol whose drivers are already included with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, and Me.

If your TrekStor-device is not recognized correctly by Windows or there is something wrong with the MTP-drivers installation, please try to reinstall the drivers. Therefore, please identify your device in the device manager and then:

- Right click on it and choose to UPDATE DRIVER.

- In the new window, select NO, NOT THIS TIME.

- Then, do not use the automatic search but INSTALL FROM A LIST OR SPECIFIC LOCATION (ADVANCED).

- In the following window, choose DON'T SEARCH. YOU WILL CHOOSE THE DRIVER TO INSTALL.

- When SHOW COMPATIBLE HARDWARE is check, you can now choose between a USB Mass Storage device and a MTP-device. Select the USB Mass Storage device and finish the installation.

I've used this product for a day now and I like it a lot.

Verified Purchase
Owned a Ipod Nano 8gig for a while, but wanted more storage while keeping a small player. The Vibez 12gig fit the bill perfectly. And it is a better player to boot. Excellent sound quality and features. I really like not being tied to Itunes to import music too. Now I just use the windows file manager to transfer music over.

Only quibble is it is a little too easy to jostle the jog wheel, interrupting a currently playing track. But overall the best dap I have owned, by far.

Verified Purchase
I spent quite a bit of time deciding which mp3 player to purchase, and I had narrowed down my decision to either an iPod or a Zune, but the TrekStor Vibez came along at the last minute, and after reading many online reviews, I decided to purchase a Vibez, and I couldn't be happier.

First of all, my desires in an mp3 player were:

1. Great sound quality

2. Gapless playback

3. multiple file format support

4. usable in Linux

5. user replaceable batteries

From my experience, the Zune has better sound quality than iPod, but the iPod has gapless playback, which the Zune currently does not have. These two items were most important to me, so either choice would have meant I was compromising what I wanted.

The Vibez player has everything I was looking for and more. It has superb sound quality, has true gapless playback, allows playback of mp3, ogg, flac, and wav files, and it does not require any software installation. This is great because I don't have to tie my device to one PC or one software installation. And since I use both Linux and Windows, I can plug the Vibez into either and just drag and drop music files with no hassle, and then the player creates every playlist I could ever want based on ID3 tags.

As far as batteries go, the battery is easily replaced, and new batteries run about $20.

If you're concerned about having a larger screen, the Vibez won't be up to par, but if you just want a great sounding player, with great features and true gapless playback, the Vibez is a great choice. I have absolutely no buyers remorse, and would definitely make the same decision again.
