- Page 3
seems to be a good choice for all those who want to quickly burn some music
and listen to it in their trip, or in the bus. The drive offers high portability
due to low weight and small dimensions, and the usage of the 8cm CD-R media
is also a convenient storage solution for data easy exchange and low volume
The CLIPP supports playback of MP3, WMA, WAV and audio files. Our tests showed
that the drive will play all the available MP3 encoded files and almost all
the WMA files, with an exception with 48kbps encoded WMA files, where we experienced
some problems. Also, the 8MB Anti-Shock supported buffer guarantees the smooth
playback in portable usage.
The control buttons of Waitec CLIPP have many useful operations and the LCD
screen gives various information about the current operation of the drive. However,
the track navigation buttons do not respond very fast, and this is possibly
reveals a slow disc access performance. In addition, the disc spinning is not
always immediately suspended if you accidentally press the eject button during
Waitec CLIPP can be easily connected to your PC through USB interface in order
to use it as a CD-R recorder. The 4x supported recording speed is not high but
you will not experience any problems during writing to CD-R media. The support
of CD-RW format would be a great improvement for the drive, as well.
The most portable players or CD recorders "suffer" from the limited
battery lifetime. Waitec CLIPP can continuously playback for 3 hours and will
record for 1 hour, when it is battery powered.
Waitec CLIPP is available in the market and costs Euro 260 - VAT excluded.
