"..Joggers and other active people can now take their favorite CDs on their workout and enjoy skip-free music with Sony's new line of CD Walkman portable CD players with skip-free G-Protection technology that reduces or eliminates skipping during many active uses.
"G-Protection combines three core technologies that move the CD laser pick-up in sync with the CD being played to actually prevent many skips before they occur,and the memory buffer is kept filled so that music is played continuously," said Ron Boire, senior vice president for Sony Electronics' personal audio division. "The result is a virtually new skip-free experience for joggers, dancers, aerobicizers and anyone else who listens to music in active situations.
The improved laser diode in the laser pick-up of all CD Walkman models consumes less power and that extends CD Walkman player battery life to new record levels. The high-end D-EJ815 CD Walkman model has a battery life of up to 76 hours, while the entry-level D-EJ611 CD Walkman model has a battery life of up to 32 hours (twice as long as predecessor models).
Sony will offer 11 different CD Walkman models ranging in price from about $80 to about $200, including three car kit models, two Sports models and several with remote controls..''
