If you’ve inherited a truckload of AAA batteries and you’re desperate to use them up, you might be interested in Kenwood’s latest DAPs. The M2GC7 and M1GC7 - the former with 2gb of flash memory and the latter with 1gb – both weigh a measly 44g and pack MP3, WMA, WAV and WMA DRM9 support into their slinky metal frames. FM radio and USB 2.0 hosting for computerless file transfers rounds out the package
They’ll be available in four colours depending on storage capacity (black, silver, pink and blue) and apparently get 11 hours of playback from a set of batteries. The 1gb is priced at $169 and the 2gb at $227, and they’ll ship next month.
