Review (June 2006) - Virtual Reality Sound Labs
Virtual Reality Sound Labs has introduced a series of mobile MP3 players with built-in FM modulators. This review includes the VRFM9, which allows music to be played using three different options. MP3 or WMA audio files can be stored on either an SD memory card or a USB flash drive plugged into the base of the unit. Alternatively, analog audio can also be connected into the side of the VRFM9 with any standard portable audio device such as an iPod. The audio is then transmitted on one of fifteen user-defined frequencies using the built-in FM modulator. The two row backlit LCD can display ID3 data (if available), including song title, artist, album and genre.
The display has good information, but it's not the easiest to read while driving. Information displayed includes Track Time, FM Frequency, Filename, Normal/Shuffle Mode and Audio Source (SD, USB or Line). A transmitting icon with the assigned frequency is shown in the upper right corner. An SD card icon or USB icon is displayed when the corresponding memory is being used as an audio source.
