Always the right music
The HDD100 Recording Audio Jukebox can store a complete library of songs, enabling the consumer to access them easily wherever and whenever required. Over 3000 MP3 or 6000 WMA files can be stored simultaneously on the device so there is no need to constantly remove tracks to make space for new ones.

The HDD100 compliments its storage possibilities with high-speed data transfer. By incorporating the super fast USB2.0 music and other files can be downloaded quickly from the PC. Users can record using analogue or digital connections, and even use the built-in microphone for recording speech.

Simple navigation
The Recording Audio Jukebox makes it easy to select a particular song with the Philips SuperscrollTM navigation interface. The buttons used to scroll through tracks have two-step functionality. Pressing either the ‘up’ or ‘down’ button for longer activates a scroll accelerator (patent pending) that allows faster navigation through the list of stored songs.

Tracks can also be categorized by genre, for instance ‘rock’, ‘hip-hop’, ‘classical’ or ‘dance’, which makes it much easier to find a certain type of song to suit the occasion. The user can customize these categories, which can be linked to present and future recordings in a particular genre. They are also linked to equalizer settings, so the most appropriate tone is automatically selected for each different genre.

Philips Recording Audio Jukebox offers a considerable amount of music power between recharges. Up to 10 hours of playback is possible from a single rechargeable Li-Ion battery and offers 15 GB of storage capacity. In addition to being used as portable jukeboxes, they can also function as miniature removable PC hard discs, allowing easy transfer of large amounts of data between computers.
