Message Text: Philips is extending the popularity of MP3-CD playback by shrinking the CD player itself - with a CD portable specifically designed to play 8cm (3-inch) CDs which can contain over three hours of compressed digital audio in formats like MP3, UDF or AAC.

The 8cm eXpanium(TM), EXP 401, to be launched this Fall,is smaller than a standard 12cm CD and weighs about .5 pounds (220g) - small and light enough to fit comfortably in a pocket.

A blank 8cm (3-inch) disc - costing less than US $2.00 - can store up to 200Mb of music, making the 8cm eXpanium an unbeatably cost effective method of enjoying music on the move. It is also highly convenient, since the disc's size allows the CD player to be much smaller than `conventional' portable CD players. Furthermore, creating discs for playing back on the 8cm eXpanium easy, and no different from creating a 12cm CD-R or CD-RW disc.

Powered by a single AA battery, the 8cm eXpanium offers maximum enjoyment of music on the move. Continuous CD playback is ensured by Magic(TM) ESP (Electronic Skip Protection) technology, which provides a 100-second music buffer for MP3-CD files compressed at 128 kbps. Dynamic Bass Boost provides two levels of bass enhancement at every volume level while ensuring music remains distortion-free. Other features include:

Fast track navigation via easy-to-read LCD display showing album and track numbers.
Programming of up to 50 tracks with shuffle play and introscan
Hold/Resume modes
MP3-CD playback (32-320 Kbps including Variable Bit Rate)
8cm CD compatibility (Audio CD, CD-R, CD-RW)
Headphone and AC/DC adapter included

The 8cm eXpanium is being launched less than a year after Philips introduced the first members of its MP3-CD family, the eXpanium EXP103 portable and the FW-M55 hi-fi mini system, along with the RUSH(TM) solid state digital audio device. Later this year, Philips will announce further extensions of this family with a whole range of portable audio products and home audio systems all featuring MP3-CD playback.
