The X mini RAVE received a glowing review from iPad and iPhone User describing the speaker as ‘ideal for scenarios where you haven’t got access to a full-scale music system.’
The RAVE model of the X mini cohort is equipped with the added feature of FM radio. No longer must you use your MP3 player or phone to enjoy flawless sound from the speaker.  One of the standout features of any X mini speaker is their small size and portability. Despite the radio feature, the RAVE does not change in size but incorporates the speaker into the existing mould. What’s even better is that it comes with a memory feature so your last played station is stored.
You can purchase an X mini RAVE model from Advanced MP3 Players priced at £39.99.

Stuff Awards

Triumph at the 2011 Stuff Awards


Tuesday 2nd November saw the event that was the 2011 Stuff Awards. These prestigious awards mark excellence in the technology and gadget industry and the night was not without excitement or surprise. What certainly wasn’t a surprise were the fantastic wins for the products below.

Sonos has had a fantastic run with their Play:3 model and the device has not gone without recognition. Though not winners, the Denon Ceol, SoundMagic E10s and SoundScience QSB speakers won in reaching the Highly Commended categories.


Audio Gadget of the Year


Sonos Play:3


Sonos Play:3

What Stuff said:
‘The dinky Play:3 may not have room for skipping CDs, tangling tapes or crackling vinyl, but it is a consummate streamer of digital music, a conduit for internet radio and a server-upper of Spotify, Napster, Deezer and more. It can also link with its Sonos brethren to form a multiroom setup, pair with another Play:3 for stereo output and pump out room-filling sound of the highest quality.’


Highly Commended

Best Audio Gadget of the Year

Although there were no winners in this category two Advanced MP3 Players products were featured in the Highly Commended section.


SoundMagic E10 Earphones



The SoundMagic E10s are the second most popular selling headphones at Advanced MP3 Players and the most popular at our sister site Advanced Headphones. For good reason too – the in-ear headphones   reproduce sound with an astute quality that is akin to that of far higher priced models.



SoundScience QSB Speakers




The QSB speakers are examples of quality being squashed into one very small location. The square models sit neatly atop your workstation proving excellent sonic company by blasting out clean and clear notes. They don’t busy your desk or impose with superfluous cables and an awkward shape but blend nicely into any desktop aesthetic.
