PicoHD5.1 Media Player: Tiny Package Packs a Punch

Boy, how far we’ve come in the last decade. Just a few years back, the idea of full HD video for the masses was still just a pipe-dream, and now you can get cheap consumer cameras that shoot 1080p video, and Blu-ray players for about $100 that also play back the super-sharp format. Now, you can get a pocket-sized media player that can play full HD 1080p video anywhere you go.

Measuring just 2.95″ (w) x 2.5″ (d) x .59″ (h), Crystal Acoustics’ PicoHD5.1 portable media player is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but it can play full HD video files through its built-in HDMI port. It surpports video files in a variety of formats including MKV, DivX, XVID, AVI, M2TS, WMV9, MPG 1/2/4, FLV, RM, TS and VOB files. Audio support is available for FLAC, MP3, OGG, WMA and WAV formats.

Files are played of of an SD, SDHC and MMC memory card, or via a USB data source such as a flash drive or external hard drives using FAT, FAT32, or NTFS extended file systems. It also offers multichannel 5.1 digital coax audio, and down-mix Dolby Digital and DTS to stereo. Each player also includes a wireless IR remote, which means you can program it to work with your universal remotes too. I also like how it’s not made from cheap plastic. This little dynamo is built from durable black anodized aluminum.

It looks like the PicoHD5.1 will be shipping soon in three different versions – one for the UK, one for the US, and another model which I assume to be for other markets. They should retail for about £49.99 (appx. $83 USD) over at the Crystal Acoustics website.
