We tested the Teac MP-200 MP3 Player's playback capabilities with different types of MP3 files. We tried playing files with different bitrates, constant and variable bitrate encoded files. The device managed to playback everything we threw at it with no problems. For more details, consult the following table.

WAV WAV Partially supported. Can play back recordings, and any WAV files using the IMA ADPCM codec only

The Teac Mp-200 MP3 Player can read ID3 tags as well and it can display various information about the tracks being played, such as the title/duration/current position. It can also display each song's lyrics, but prior processing is needed in order to embed the lyrics within the MP3 file. There are plugins for Winamp that can take care of this task. All this information is displayed on the device's screen, scrolling from left to right so that all of the details can be displayed.

As far as music quality is concerned, the Teac Mp-200 MP3 Player performed very well and without any glitches. When listening to well-encoded MP3/WMA files, the produced sound was very good, at all volume levels. The sound was crisp, the max volume level was loud enough, and the 5 EQ presets were quite handy.

Looking at the recording capabilities of the MP-200, the device can be used as a voice recorder using the built-in microphone, or it can record directly from another source using the line-in input jack. The device records using the IMA ADPCM codec which produces uncompressed WAV files. The maximum recording time with the MP-200 with 256MB capacity, is around 16 hours. Each recording is stored as a file with a .WAV extension in the player's memory, which you can then copy to your computer and listen to directly.

The device supports the USB 1.1 standard for data transfer and although it offers limited speed compared to the USB 2.0 standard, the speeds are quite slow considering the size of the memory. To copy 256MB of data from your PC to the MP-200, you will need approximately 7-8 minutes.
