Colorfly Pocket HiFi: luxury player with immense sound.

ColorflyColorfly Pocket HiFi




Advanced MP3 Players are pleased to announce the arrival of the Colorfly Pocket Hifi. This device manages to fit enough quality components inside its luxury casing to produce the kind of sound you’d expect from a HiFi system many times its size. The sound is like no other player and the appearance is much the same. Its housing is built with black walnut wood from North America which makes every player unique. The motif and curve are delicately handcrafted and provide indication of the kind of quality apparent in design and sound engineering.




The inside of the Colorfly is really where all the magic happens. You can read all the technical jargon on their website or a more digestible version on our product page here. Otherwise, the Colorfly uses a high quality digital to audio converter, the Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC, which produces high quality acoustics with a dynamic range of up to 120dB. Impressive sound is achieved through impressive internal function that produces an extremely high decoding rate of 24bit/192KH. They’ve also got their own patented ‘Jitter Killer’ technology in place that has jitter lower than 5ps.


In basic terms, the Colorfly produces immense quality of sound. Make sure you’ve got the earphones to cope! Check out the range of head and earphones here.



You can get your hands on a Colorfly through Advanced MP3 Players for £549 here.

Cowon J3 – exceeding expectations in sound, video and design.

J3Cowon J3


Cowon J3 32GB MP3 Player


~ £169 ~


“All the core strengths of the Cowon S9 are still in place, including superb sound and excellent video quality, while the addition of a memory expansion slot and improved battery life are very welcome. The wholly unexpected and unheralded appearance of support for H.264 video and AAC audio now makes the J3 one of the best PMPs on the market.” RegHardware




Cowon are a brand known for excellence in sound. The J3 both embodies this reputation and exceeds it. Winning the prestigious redDot Design Award in 2010, this award added to a long list of accolades for Cowon.


Using the BBE+ audio architecture the J3 is capable of making poor quality audio files shine while bringing out the best in the better files. This MP3 player is not only capable of delivering unwavering quality of sound it can also play high quality videos. The individual pixels in the 3.3” AMOLED screen produce their own light meaning the on screen picture changes more fluidly than on an LCD screen.


Delivering what the consumer wants, Cowon listened to customer feedback and updated the J3 to include expandable memory. Add an SD card and build on the memory the 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models can already hold.

Cocktail Audio X10 arrives at Amp3! Check out this amazing Hi Fi system here.



Cocktail Audio X10

It’s unlikely that most of the younger music-listening generations have piles of CDs stacked in their rooms, on shelves or in attics. Yet they are still readily available in all kinds of shops for those of us who’d prefer tangible, solid evidence of where our high quality music is coming from. They may be on the out but they’re certainly still relevant. CDs provide the kind of quality of sound that is often overlooked for a smaller, less precise digital files. By today’s standards the Compact Disc is still compact. However, compared to the hundreds of CDs that will never exceed the size of your mp3 player, CDs face a tough battle with convenience.


So do we sacrifice space for quality or quality for space? The Cocktail Audio X10 provides a solution to this and means you don’t have to face this problem again.


In essence the X10 is a sophisticated hi-fi audio system that operates with complete independence from a laptop or computer. The X10 will both play and burn up to 15 000 albums onto its hard drive making them accessible through the database function or by remote.


Files move effortlessly from CD to hard drive no matter their original size. The X10 can reproduce CD quality sound as the sophisticated encoding options allow the choice between WAV, FLAC, OGG and MP3 files.


The X10 allows you to keep you entire music library on one device that will sit neatly in any room. There is no compromise to quality and you can even use a remote computer to back up your files if you so choose.
The best of both worlds in one simple device. The 1TB size X10 is available at Amp3 for £379.99. Get it here.

X-Mini Happy: your festival essential 2011!

“Extravagant, perhaps, but this tacky-sounding gadget is one of our favourite festival frivolities. Acting as a regular MP3 player playing tunes from a 2GB SD Card, when twisted it concertinas out into a quite brilliant-sounding speaker.” (Pocket Lint – read the full review here)

AMP3 Product Sleepover: EXTREMELY LOUD! Andrea Trials the X-mini Happy!

I bet you are sitting there wondering what a ‘product sleep over’ is!?  Well not to fear you are about to find out!

Here at AMP3 we value giving our customers an informed, open and honest opinion.  How can we give you the whole picture if our staff members haven’t had first-hand experience with the products we are offering you?  Well now we can!  We are encouraging our staff members to take home and trial products for themselves, and every day we will post up our results right here on our blog!

This week, our Key Accountant Andrea is blown away by the Xmini Happy!  Can she talk over the immense sound this little capsule speaker produces?

Video Review Guide – Xmini Happy

Pros: Unbelievably loud, drop and drag file transfer, retractable audio cable enables connection to any 3.5mm line out connector, perfect for festivals, holidays and a get-away, 12 hours music playback when played through MP3 Player.

Cons: Only 5 hours battery life if playing music direct from SD card

Verdict: Well I’m suitably impressed with the X-mini Happy Capsule Speaker, it has most definitely lived up to the ‘Sound Beyond Size’ label that comes with it.  Recommended? I would have to say yes! It really is the perfect travel companion. The Happy gives you an unlimited source of music wherever you are via SD card or any other device with a 3.5mm audio out port!  The battery lasts up to 12 hours and the volume is more than enough for to fill any room you are staying in – you might even get told to turn it down!
