Venzero miniONE color display MP3 player
Venzero miniONE color display MP3 player : The latest addition to Venzero's family of MP3 players comes in a small, suave, flat design that fits in the watch pocket of even the tightest jeans. A pity, really: It looks so good that you'll want to show it off to everyone! Like its big brother, the Venzero ONE, the miniONE features direct support for MusicMarker, the ingenious service that automatically recognizes song titles at the touch of a button. If you are on the move and suddenly hear a song you don't know, MusicMarker lets you record it and then later identifies it for you on the PC. Indeed, despite its diminutive dimensions, the Venzero miniONE has everything a really good MP3 player needs. It is only small on the outside!|
Venzero miniONE - Sound optimizer|
1GB and 2GB models provide ample room to store loads of CDs. So users can take all the entertainment they need wherever they go when they are jogging, on the bus, on the beach or wherever. The Venzero miniONE effortlessly handles all the most common formats (MP3, WMA and WAV). The player can be set to work with Windows Media Player 10 or 11 from Microsoft for that purpose but is otherwise recognised as a mass storage device and thus works with any software you like. When its batteries are fully charged, the miniONE delivers 12 hours of uninterrupted enjoyment. It also naturally features an array of equalizer settings and srs wow sound optimizers to let discerning listeners squeeze the subtlest nuance of pulsating bass or brilliant treble out of every song.

The miniONE is the second music player from Venzero to provide direct support for MusicMarker. If a CD you have never heard before is playing at the poolside bar, or if the radio DJ didn't announce the song title, MusicMarker can still very quickly identify the song. A microphone built into the Venzero miniONE lets you record a short clip from the song at the touch of a button. Next time you hook your player up to the PC, the Venzero MediaManager (included in the scope of delivery) then quickly identifies the artist, song title and album. A "Download" button built into the software gives customers a convenient way to access partner stores and buy the song straight away.

That is by no means all the Venzero MediaManager can do, however. The software features an extremely intuitive interface that dovetails seamlessly with the MusicMarker, MediaMonkey and MyVenzero applications. Probably the best media player software on the market, MediaMonkey gives you the quickest and easiest way to manage your entire music collection, including automated functions to tag and sort even the largest volumes of data. An ingenious auto-sync function lets you copy music onto your player by genre, artist or album. It even quickly assembles compilations of your favorite tracks, or of songs you haven't heard for a long time. In addition, MediaMonkey has a wide range of tools and functions, is extremely scalable, but always remains simple and intuitive to use. Extras such as the RSS functions are available under MyVenzero, enabling you to manage any number of RSS newsfeeds, subscribe to podcasts, sign onto blog lists - and transfer the whole lot to your Venzero miniONE for your viewing and listening pleasure.
