Rimax B-Twin Music Player
Rimax has just unveiled the B-Twin, a digital audio player the company considers equally useful for public sharing as well as for private listening. The B-Twin sports two headphone jacks, allowing sharing without a splitter or wireless adapter; to help with this, Rimax also bundles a second pair of earbuds. An external speaker gives the further choice of broadcasting music to a nearby audience. With either 1GB or 2GB of flash memory, the latest Rimax player supports a full set of media functions and plays most MPEG and Windows Media audio files as well as MPEG-4 video and GIF/JPEG photos. FM Radio and voice recording bolster its abilities. The player can be imported today from British store RMXdirect beginning at $132 for a 1GB model.
