MP3-CD playback means MP3 plays like a normal audio CD.
MP3 stands for "MPEG 1 Audio layer-3".MP3 is a revolutionary compression technology by which large digital music files can be made up to 10 times smaller without radically degrading their audio quality. MP3 has become the standard audio compression format used on the world wide web, allowing quick and easy audio file transfer.
Magic ESP™ for skip-free music on the move
Magic Electronic Skip Protection™ ensures skip-free music even when your MP3-CD player is knocked or jolted. Devices with the feature have an intelligent electronic buffer that can store different music formats such as MP3, WMA and CDDA. During playback, music is constantly fed into the buffer. When the device is jolted, music is played from the buffer while the laser promptly refocuses to the point where the shock occurred, and recommences playing to refill the buffer. Magic Electronic Skip Protection™ can offer long skip protection depending on the bit rate of the digital audio file.
ID3 Tag Support for track information during CD playback
Players with ID3 Tag Support have an LCD screen that displays a text readout of the artist name and the title of the track currently being played so you can easily identify songs on your player. They show both numerical and text information in an easy-to-read format allowing you to conveniently view the artist name and track title. ID3 Tag Support lets you quickly and easily identify and navigate through the large number of files on your MP3-CD or WMA-CD.
