Review: the MP Shuttle in-car MP3 player

Now this is something interesting. We’ve reviewed the MP Shuttle, an in-car MP3 player that’s definitely a sign of things to come–from whichever manufacturers have the courage to make such excellent gear in the face of opposition from the recording industry, etc. The MP Shuttle can store and play (even in “shuffle” mode) hundreds of songs on a single CD-R disc or hard drive.

Andy’s broken down the pluses and minuses of this particular unit, and the prognosis isn’t bad. Have a look, then post your comments below.

    People are so keen on waiting for there favourite company to release an in-dash CDR model. The idea behind MP3s to me is reusable media! Not CDR or CDRW but HardDisks! Empeg uses a HD platform and will always have an edge over all CDR platforms. Xeeon as well is aware of this and has introduced the HD model. This device actually has more potential then the Empeg because you can actually swap hard drive and use an size you desire.

    The ultimate goal of an mp3 collector is to have a platform where all MP3 can be stored in a single location. 3000-7000 songs and more! (depending on the availability of larger disks in the future)

    Why swap disks when you can swap Hard-drives!

    *[Anon@209.220.176.126<]* Seems a little extreme to me. I use the Rio PMP 32 with a 64MB compact flash add on, instead of the portable CD player attached to my cassette converter I attache it. Why oh why can\'t they use the Rio engine in a dash mounted system with removable flash cards? You would think they would get it by now, we don\'t want ANY moving parts...

    *[Anon@128.153.164.180<]* 450 bucks and it does all that!!! I think there is finally a reasonably priced MP3 solution and it\'s under 100 bucks. Looking at it, the dimensions look to be about 11\" by 9 inches by 2 inches. That\'s for post 7. It\'s truck mounted with a led read out. Why would you want an in dash player for 200 songs? You can make them disks. And if this thing works, you might as well expect a changer version in the future.

    It looks pretty sly but I still prefer the car MP3 player my office mate kludged together whilst we were on co-op. He went for the computer in the trunk method but it had a nice VFD display mounted in the dash and remote control. Granted now that his roommate took back the TV remote the system’s just sitting there, but…

    *[Anon@ch2smc.bellglobal.com<]* too big.. it shouldn\'t be any bigger than a regular portable CD player if it\'s custom made for mp3 playing
