JVC launches XA DAPs

JVC on Tuesday announced the release of its all-new XA-M10, XA-M20, and XA-M40 digital audio players. Available with 1GB, 2GB or 4GB of on-board memory, respectively, the three Alneo XA-series digital audio players feature a 6-line black and white OLED display. Either XA-series DAP will store up to 100 songs in a folder, making up a user's favorite playlist, by pressing the Favourites button when a track is playing. The players will replace the XA-MP line, which topped out at 1GB of memory and were smaller, but also had less features and a shorter battery life.

Transferring the supported MP3, WMA, WMA-DRM10 and WAV audio files to the Victor-branded players is done via a USB 2.0 connection with a PC running Microsoft Windows Vista or XP operating systems. A voice-activated recording feature is built-in along with an FM radio tuner. Included with each player is a silicon case and screen protector film. All are able to dock with JVC's UX-GM55 mini system, which will play the small devices' content while charging their integrated lithium ion battery.

The XA-M10/20/40 DAPs are available in blue, black, pink gold, red and white.

Pricing has not been announced, but the XA-M10 and XA-M20 will be available on the Japanese market early in September, with the 4GB XA-M40 shipping in October.
