A choice of two alternative designs are offered for the latest Media Keg digital audio player, both of which possess identical feature sets. Kenwood claims, by the same token as their hard drive players, that the 1GB and 2GB M2GD55/M1GD55 (pictured left) and M2GD50/M1GD50 (right) focus on high sound quality.
Format support is limited to MP3 and WMA (DRM) which can respectively play for 21 hours and 16 hours on a single charge and be transferred with both MTP and MSC (UMS) protocols. Four lines of text can be displayed on the monochrome OLED (looking very similar to Panasonic D-Snap SV-SD950N). Both designs come with a pair of Kenwood canal phones and will go on sale in Japan next month.
