Olympus is showing off this new tabletop radio design that integrates a 37GB hard drive to store up to 2500 hours of MP3 and WMA audio files. The Radio Server VJ-10 features an easy-to-read 3.9-inch backlit LCD screen for viewing track, title, and radio station information.
You can upload tunes to the player via the radio’s USB port, can also use it as an external storage device for other files (though I’m not sure why you’d need to do that.) The AM/FM radio also offers timed recording of over-the-air broadcasts, so you can listen to radio programs whenever you want. It’s also got an audio input for direct encoding of analog sound sources. To enhance sound quality, they’ve also included SRS WOW XT acoustic enhancement.
The VJ-10 is currently slated for release in Japan this March, with no release date announced for other markets. Olympus has not announced a price.
