Electronista: Kenwood last Friday announced it will soon launch two portable media players as part of its MG-E Media Keg series with either 2GB or 4GB of internal memory. Either will sport a microSDHC card slot, allowing that memory to be expanded by another 12GB. Both feature a 1.5-inch six-line OEL display and better audio quality than older Kenwood DAPs thanks to a new and improved DAC.
Users can further customize the way their sound is delivered via an integrated 5-band graphic equalizer or quickly via any of the eight preset sound settings.
The pair of personal music players is directly compatible with Kenwood’s other new release, the UD-E77WSD mini sound system. Featuring a power rating of 2x20W, the mini-system has a CD drive and an SD card slot for instant access of up to 32GB of content. The USB port lets users connect other USB devices, include the new and old Media Keg players.
