Trusted Reviews Finalist

Sony NWZ-A866 and Cowon X7 make final cut at Trusted Reviews Awards!

 

The prestigious Trusted Reviews Awards winners have been announced and at Advanced MP3 Players we are delighted to report that two products reached the final stages of selection. In the Portable Media Player of the Year Award both the Cowon X7 and Sony NWZ A866 were runners up losing to the Apple iPod 4th generation. Public voting took place to establish a shortlist of finalists for every award. It was then down to the experts at Trusted Reviews to determine the winners of each category. The X7 and NWZ-A866 are not unfamiliar at Trusted Reviews having both received glowing reports previous to the awards.

 
The X7 and NWZ-A866 didn’t go down without a fight and certainly provided the grounds for a seriously ‘tough competition’. Read why below.

 

Cowon X7

 

X7

 

Cowon are a brand synonymous with quality sound where this level of high fidelity playback is a rarity amongst players at a similar price point. It would be an understatement to say Cowon take sound seriously. What makes them unique however is Cowon appreciate that sound is different for every listener. What might sound brilliant to one person may sound horrendous to another. That’s why Cowon have included 35 pre-set music profiles to suit a vast amount of musical tastes.

 
The player is absolutely brimming with features such as having picture playback, video, a document reader and a flash player to name a few. Not only this but Cowon have made sure that these features don’t get in the way of what the Cowon is primarily for – to play music. They’ve loaded the device with a powerful battery that will give you 103 hours of music and 10 hours of video.

 

The Cowon X7 offers great value, at £199 for a generous 160GB of storage, and it has class leading file support to boot. A large screen, good battery life and superb sound quality also help to make this a real contender.Trusted Reviews

 

Sony NWZ-A866

 

 

Sony

 

The Sony NWZ-A866/A-867 models take a distinct leap in quality from former models. This player incorporates sophisticated features such as a responsive touch screen and Bluetooth connectivity. Excellence in sound has long been a top priority of Sony and the NWA-A866 is no exception to this. Using five unique Clear Audio Technologies and the S-Master MX digital amplifier to reduce noise and distortion, Sony exceeds the expectations of experts and audiophiles alike.

 

Sony has incorporated highly sophisticated specifications in the NWZ-A866 but has sensibly maintained a basic menu grid making navigation effortless. The touch screen is pleasingly efficient and responsive with a solid home button located at the bottom.
Though some of the features on the player are certainly periphery (Karaoke mode) the others are totally necessary.

 

The Bluetooth function allows you to seamlessly connect with other wireless devices such as wireless headphones, compatible speaker docks, car audio head units and other devices. Alongside the Bluetooth function, Sony has incorporated a variety of entertainment features.
To top it all off, the Sony is beautifully designed with a smooth user interface.

 

Our panel liked the drag-and-drop interface which freed them from the binds of iTunes, and the pitch and speed alteration modes, which would appeal to musicians.Trusted Reviews

dockBoss and dockBoss+ arrive at Amp3! Rated 80% by RegHardware

dockBoss+

Ever have a look around a shop and noticed how much preference there is for Apple products? Probably not if you’re using an Apple product already – which is true for most people out there. A serious problem lies ahead for those of us using any product but an Apple product when on the lookout for speakers. In every shop the majority of speakers will likely be fitted with a 30-pin dock suitable for Apple products only. Finally, a solution is available. Enter the dockBoss converter.

The dockBoss and dockBoss+ are innovative devices that instantly make an iPod dock compatible with a wide range of players. They ‘speak the language of all systems’ where one end of the dockBoss connects to the iPod dock and the other is a standard 3.5mm jack that fits a range of audio-output devices including laptops and portable radios. Hurrah! Finally a way to benefit from an Apple dominated market without an Apple product!

Even better, they love it at RegHardware too! It is RegHardware Recommended and was rated 80%!

A winning product all round. Don’t hesitate to get yours today!

~ The dockBoss is £22.99 ~

~ The dockBoss+ is £29.99 ~

Clip Zip going from strength to strength and receives Editor’s Choice Award at TechGage

Clip ZipSansa Clip Zip

Not immediately associating SanDisk with brilliant little mp3 players is a forgivable mistake. SanDisk are mostly known for their global leadership in flash memory storage technologies. However, the Sansa range of budget mp3 players that SanDisk have produced have been positively received by reviewers and the great press keeps getting better. The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip model was recently featured in the Daily Star.

 

Technology website TechGage recently reviewed the Clip Zip and gave it an Editor’s Choice Award:

‘The current iPod shuffle 2GB retails for the same price as the Clip Zip 4GB, but it has no screen and is unable to have its storage upgraded. In that sense, Sansa is offering quite a compelling player here, and it’s become one of my favorites I’ve ever used. It’s so small that during a workout it’s not even noticed, and even if sweaty, it can still be navigated fine.’ TechGage

 

The Clip Zip is the latest Sansa mp3 player that incorporates extreme functionality with a basic style that makes it ideal for both exercise and casual listening. For a full review click here.

 

The Sansa Clip Zip is available from Advanced MP3 players for 4GB £39.99 8GB £46.72

NuForce Icon iDo

 

**The NuForce Icon iDo is on special offer for one week only through an exclusive Facebook deal. Until Monday 24 October you get a generous 10% off the Icon iDo amp.**

 

Like‘ our Facebook page now and get exclusive access to this deal today.

 

About the iDo

The NuForce Icon iDo is here to solve all of your audiophile woes and breathes life into those digital files that aren’t living up to their full potential in your Apple device. Credit to Apple, their range of mp3 players are stunning works of design and function but this is no consolation to audiophiles who expect a higher standard of sound from such a high quality mp3 player. With Apple, ‘high quality’ doesn’t translate as ‘specialist’ which is why many people are left disappointed.

 
This is where the iDo comes in. Apple stores the original high quality digital file on its mp3 players easily but the problem is with their in-built digital to audio converter.  Their converter is where the quality wanes and becomes that less than special sound. What the iDo does is goes into the device and bypasses this converter extracting the original high quality file giving back the studio quality sound it is capable of producing.

 

It might sound a little complicated but the solution is simple. The iDo gives you the quality of sound that belongs to your digital file without the need for a high-end, specialist mp3 player.

Icon iDo by NuForce now available for pre order! Check it out!

iDoIcon iDo

 

The Icon iDo if finally ready for pre order from Amp3.  The digital audio converter and headphone amplifier has been made specifically for Apple products to convert digitally stored music files to their original audiophile quality.

 

The device might look a bit odd and might not seem so straightforward but the science behind it is really very simple.

 

Apple products like the iPod, can store a near original CD quality copy of a music file (Apple Lossless) but doe not reproduce that quality of sound when playing the file. Sound is only as good as the default digital to analogue converter.

 

When connected, the iDo bypasses the default converter and extracts the original high quality file without any loss of clarity. It produces audiophile grade sound from a digitally stored file.  Simple!

 

The iPod which for years has been the world’s most popular MP3 player shows no sign of relinquishing any of its market dominance. The iDo brings to the world of Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad users a supremely high quality sound without having to purchase a high performing MP3 player.

 

Pre order yours today for £399.

Steve Jobs: A Tribute

Apple

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

[His] brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.” Apple

 

On hearing of the passing of Steve Jobs at Advanced MP3 Players I would like, on behalf of all the staff, to state how sorry we are to hear of his death. Advanced MP3 Players operates in the very sector that Jobs helped to create and in which his legacy will continue to influence.

Steve Jobs, the visionary behind the Apple brand and information revolution changed the world of technology for the better. The impact of Apple Inc. touched and influenced the worlds of communication, design and high-end technology.

 

His passion and rigour as leader took Apple from mediocre Macintosh retailer to the technology giant that usurped Microsoft to become the world’s biggest technology company.

Jobs’ resolute belief and passion for tasteful design led the way to an untapped, unconventional culture of technology that fused creativity with the best of technology.

Advanced MP3 Players owes a lot of its success to the work of Steve Jobs and his genius that brought MP3 players to the mainstream. The world of technology has suffered an incalcuable loss and this is truly a sad day at Amp3.” Andrew Gordon, Managing Director.
