Kenwood's been churning out DAPs with high quality audio for awhile now. Some with disks
, some with flash
, but all with superior sound quality to the usual wares
. Now they've taken the whole kit and shrunk it down into this, the world's smallest disk-based DAP. Sporting a 10GB (presumably 1-inch) disk drive, the new Media Keg HD10GB7 brings that same "clear digital amplifier" and sound processing found in their flagship player
. The screen has been reduced to a mere 1.5-inches which if fine by us -- not like the Media Kegs' support video anyway. Fortunately, the battery doesn't suffer from miniaturization as it's capable of pumping MP3s for a full 24-hours; after which a 3-hour recharge from USB will top things off. The Napster to Go supporting HD10GB7 measures in at 78-grams / 62×44×17-millimeters so it'll go just about anywhere, especially Japan where these will hit first come December for about ¥40,000 or about $345.
