iRiver America announces next generation MP3 CD player

iRiver America, the world's leading manufacturer of hybrid portable MP3 CD players, announced today the US introduction of iMP-350 SlimX(TM), its top-of-the-line CD/WMA/ASF/MP3 player. As the world's slimmest multi-CODEC and CD player (16.7 mm), the SlimX supports MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), ASF, optional AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), multiple CD formats, holds up to 650 MB (over 250 songs) on a single CD, and upgradeable firmware consumers can download via the Internet.

``We are meeting the demands of increasingly sophisticated audio consumers,'' said John Kim, President of iRiver America. ``iRiver's award- winning engineers have unveiled SlimX, which harnesses the latest technology to deliver top quality sound using less storage space and download times.

Durability and advanced technology have made iRiver's products a standard for comparison in the CD/MP3 players, winning CNET's editor's choice award, and review praise from Amazon,, Smart Business Magazine, Edgereview, Besttoys, and Consumer Reports.

``The biggest appeal to consumers will be the features that SlimX provides,'' explained Chris Papazian, Marketing Manager for iRiver America. ``It sports a streamlined profile that is 44% thinner than its counterparts, supports four different music formats, uses iRiver Shock-Free(TM) compressed audio shock protection, multi-language support, and 23 hours of continuous play when using the rechargeable and 2 AA batteries in the external battery adapter. In addition, we will continuously grow with our consumer's needs by providing a convenient way for them to upgrade their systems through free downloads on iRiver America's website.''
