A digital audio player with a simple design: small and lightweight, but user-friendly and stylish. It is equipped with a built-in FM tuner and IC recorder, and is a multi-format player (MP3 and WMA). There are two types: the MP500V, with a capacity of 128 MB, and the MP510V, with 256 MB. The two interfaces, i.e. the display and the buttons, are given maximum space in the layout. The twin-block design enables downsizing and improved operability. The display block is made of aluminum, and the surface of the button block is made of silicone rubber, which is coated for a more beautiful appearance. The player's avant-garde, icon-like design may serve as a new prototype for future generations of portable audio players.
