MP3 for RISC OS machines

Stuart Tyrrell Developments release hardware MP3 for RISC OS machines

Stuart Tyrrell Developments are pleased to announce a hardware MP3 player for use with RISC OS machines.

This device combines the convenience of plug-and-play FLASH storage with an on-board MP3 decoder to provide possibly the most convenient music solution available.

The player is fully supported by our USB podule from Simtec, and contains 64MB or 128MB of flash memory. A full filing system is supplied and the device can be used for storage of important files, transfer of files over to a PC or to other machine equipped with Simtec’s USB podule. Any MP3 files stored upon the device may also be played using the supplied headphones – it may be considered as an intelligent audio-playing USB pen drive. A simple intuitive wheel control is provided for play/pause/power/track forward/back and volume.

Total dimensions are just 9cm x 3cm x 2.5cm. Power is supplied by an internal Lithium-Ion battery which simply recharges when the player is plugged into the Simtec USB port.

A pack comprising the 64MB player, headphones and neck loop, RISC OS and PC software is available for UKP79.95 inc VAT and delivery. The 128MB version costs UKP99.95 inc VAT and delivery.

The device requires Simtec’s USB podule to upload files (or a PC). Iyonix not supported. Simtec USB podule UKP99.95 inc VAT and delivery.
