Juke Tower waterproof MP3 player
Another gadget to help take your tunes to the bathroom, here is the Juke tower from N-et corp Japan. The waterproof MP3 player is no bigger than shampoo bottle, it packs in 2GB of RAM and can supports playback of MP3 files only. The stand has a sound reflector so the sound is dissipated equally in the room. The mono speaker is 50mm wide and delivers an output of 0.5W×1ch. The player can take up shower sprays and splashes but not a drop in the tub. Unlike the JVC XA-AW33 it has basic controls and a display which shows the time, folder and track no, as it does not support ID3 tags.The unit is powered by 3 x AAA batteries which provide 12 hours of continuos playback.
