Rio Karma 40GB MP3 Player Coming Soon


Rio is planning to release a new MP3 Player, competing with the Apple Ipod in size and storage. The Karma’s many features and small size set a new standard for high-capacity players. Its 40GB drive can carry over 10,200 songs. Powerful tools include cross-fader, 5-band parametric equalizer, Ogg Vorbis and FLAC support, and a huge, backlit display capable of visualizations, animated menus, and 16 shades of gray. USB 2.0 provides fast transfers while the included docking station also adds drop-in charging, RCA Line-Out, and an Ethernet port for networking. Simple menus and intuitive controls make it easy to pick up and use. Helpful functions like auto-synchronization with Rio Music Manager, Rio DJ, and dynamic playlist generation make the Karma as effortless as you want it to be.
