Aiwa unveils Worlds Smallest and Lightest MD Player


Aiwa Co., Ltd. has introduced the AM-HX100 portable MD player, which is the world’s smallest and lightest, and also offers the longest playback time.

Thanks to Aiwa’s high-density component mounting and low power consumption technologies, the AM-HX100 is the world smallest (only 71.1mm wide x 12.6mm high x 77.2mm deep) and lightest (the main unit weighs just 56g). Plus the AM-HX100’s 125-hour continuous playback in LP4 mode (with both rechargeable battery and an alkaline cell) also sets a new world standard.

The unique unit features: new track-search function that lets users select a track from the titles automatically arranged in Japanese kana order on the remote control unit’s LCD; new sentence repeat function (in auto/manual mode)@that is ideal for playing back MDs during language study; 25-track program function allows users to hear their favorite tracks in the order they want; convenient battery charger stand; and 40-second/80-second (LP2)/160-second (LP4) sound skip-preventing memory.

The AM-HX100 is thus a high-end portable MD player with world-class functions. It has an eye-catching slim, stylish design, and is available in three pleasing colors – silver, black, and blue. In addition to youthful MD users, the AM-HX100 is targeted at first-time MD player purchasers in the over-30 age bracket and others planning to upgrade their existing MD player to one conforming to the MD Long Play (MDLP) standard.
