Posted 22 February 2002 15:10 CET by DoMiN8ToR

Sony introduces their new Sportline. The new S2 line features a radical, pearl white and orange look. New ergonomic shapes and advanced features are the rage in the S2 Sports line which includes two CD Walkman players, a Net MDTM Walkman recorder, a boombox, an armband radio and coordinating headphones. The creation of the S2 line is based on four key concepts: water resistance, reflective finish, active control and impact resistance: S2 CD Walkman Players: Active consumers want their music with them anytime, anywhere. Sony's S2 CD Walkman players are the ideal companions, delivering uninterrupted listening. All three models ( D-SJ301, D-CS901and D-FS601) players are equipped with skip-free G-Protection technology, which offers up to 15 times faster shock recovery than conventional skip protection. For active control on-the-go, the D-SJ301 model features an ergonomic shape and Jog Stick Control function that fits naturally in the hand and enables easy access to playback controls. With CD-R/RW playback capabilities, 64-track RMS programming and nine playback modes, this model also offers expanded listening and customizing options. It will be available next month for about $100. In addition to the features loaded on the D-SJ301 model, the D-FS601 S2 CD Walkman player includes an AM/FM radio tuner, a TV weather band and 51 pre-set stations. This pumped-up model will be available in July for about $130. The D-CS901 CD Walkman features CD-R/RW and MP3 playback capabilities. A two-line/10-character dot matrix LCD displays track titles and folder information. The easy-access folder function let users quickly navigate between multiple MP3 folders. The variable bit-rate allows playback of MP3 files recorded at any rate from 8 to 320 kbps. Only one picture available unfortunately but they look nice !Source: Sony

Pretty sweet except for the pretty poor two line LCD. 5 lines at least would be nice. 10 would be really nice.

At lot of the big electronics manufacturers e.g. Sony, Kenwood, Philips, Panasonic and others make VCD discmans. They also make stand alone VCD players. Just take a look here: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/jbronline-sg/video-player-vcd-player.html Unfortunately these products aren't widely available outsde Asia, where VCDs are much more popular than videos. However I think you may only be able to get Mp3/VCD discmans from cheap brands.
