JVC Alneo Music Players

JVC this morning released a series of new music players under its Victor label in Japan. The updated Alneo C series of flash players adds features still relatively unseen in music players: every model is now capable of gapless playback for AAC, MP3, and WMA songs, ensuring that continuous mixes remain intact. Also added is the ability to stream music directly through a USB connection, providing a clearer digital signal for JVC's line of USB-equipped stereos.

The company says its new Alneos retain all their existing abilities, including line-in recording, an FM tuner, and 20 hours of playback achieved in part through an energy-efficient 1.3-inch OLED. Capacity has been doubled, however, with the leading C210 carrying 2GB of music alongside the 1GB and 512MB storage levels of the C110 and C51 respectively. All three will make an appearance in black, gray, and silver metal shells during early February for prices ranging between $166 for the base C51 and $248 for the 2GB C210. [via Akihabara]
