By: Mike Singh

With MPIO being a leader for the consumer market with digital audio and multimedia devices, it is no surprise that its market share is comparable to other well known companies, with 30,000 to 50,000 digital audio equipments manufactured each month, with 75% of them released to foreign countries. Some of the products developed are portable music players, digital voice recorders, multi-function digital still cameras, MP3 encoders, multi-function hybrid digital music devices, and digital A/V products. In 2003 and 2005, MPIO received the "IF Design Awards" which is one of the most competitive design awards in the world. In March of 2006, the MPIO Co., Ltd., was invited to the world's largest exhibition in electrical appliances, the CeBIT 2006, where it was held in Hannover, Germany. They announced six models of new MP3 player products and HMC products.

The top of the line FL 400 player, or the MPIO Quartz, comes with an entirely new look and style, looking like a shiny black quartz pendant. The most luxurious accessory for the fashion leaders, it has a rich sound that consists of the Spatializer 3D sound effect, and 7 kinds of EQ bands, with nine hours of continuous playback. It has a white backlight with a USB 2.9 for high speed, USB Mass storage, and integrated FM radio – with a capacity of 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB. With an internal battery, the Li-polymer, it can be charged by connected it to the USB of the USB port of the PC. An AC adapter can be purchased separately if needed for traveling.

MPIO Quartz works as a flash drive, and can be used as a removable USB disk, storing and carrying data wherever a person goes. It supports not only FM Radio function, but also auto preset, FM recording, reserved recording, and recording in high or low levels with its integrated high quality microphone. The basics are involved in the sound, where clear and powerful sound quality is heard as just "part of the job, ma'am!" Working with both PC (through Windows 98 through XP) and MacOS, version 9.2 and higher.

An industry standard now, the MPIO's playable pendant type earphone was once invented by MPIO for the first time in the world. And now, its evolution through MPIO's advanced technology connected and fixed the earphone to the player by its connection grip. It is designed for users who are on the go and very active, made to decrease the risk of wire breakage. But the best part of the MPIO devices is the way a person can download the latest upgrade from the MPIO homepage, and then installing it onto the player. The whole thing is simple AND easy.
