Solo USB personal audio player

Product code: DH447
£79.98 (inc VAT) £66.65 (ex VAT)

The ex VAT price will apply to blind or partially sighted people, or someone buying on their behalf.

The Solo is part of the Kings Access Technology range of USB players and is designed to be a high-quality and portable device that plays MP3 and .WAV files. It can easily fit in your pocket or bag, meaning you can listen to your favourite Talking Book, music playlist or podcast wherever you go.
Description
Raised buttons with tactile markings make it easy to move to a new book, skip through chapters or review the paragraph you have just read. The Solo has four large, yellow tactile control buttons and a tactile 'click on/off' volume control dial.
The Solo automatically bookmarks, so when turn you the player back on or reinsert the memory stick, the player knows the exact place to start playing from. This function works across an unlimited number of memory sticks so allows for multiple books to be enjoyed.
Bluetooth connectivity works by simply searching and connecting to the Solo from your other device, such as a speaker or headphones.
The Solo has the latest generation of digital amplifiers providing clearer sound, less distortion and a louder, clearer head-phone output.
Supplied with a built-in rechargeable battery and USB C charger with a unique tactile feel, 3D raised Kings’ logo and high contrast colours, so you’ll always know you’re using the right charger. The cable is made from a strengthened braided nylon cable. USB C is a universal standard and will prevent “wrong” chargers being used and potentially damaging equipment.
 
The USB micro-processor is optimised to ensure compatibility across the thousands of different USB controller types.
 
For best sound quality, it is recommended to use Bluetooth headphones or plug in headphones that don't have a microphone.  Headphones usually supplied with mobile phones have a microphone within them and these may cause a poorer quality output.
