I was recommend this player by mp3players.co.uk - but unfortunately when I tried to order - the item was out of stock which I found to be true at a number of online stores. So either the IHP120 is popular or there are supply difficulties.
When I tried another site - which told me stocks were in - I was later emailed saying that the item was out of stock. On enquiring I was told that their site was not linked to the stock list - hmmmm : (
However eventually - to my surprise Dixons online had stock (check by phone call) - and the IHP120 was delivered a few days later.
The IHP120 is a breeze to set up - drag MP3s from the computer. I have been using Real player to scan in my CD?s and this appears to work really well.
The remote with display is fab - and allows you to browse the unit at ease by Artist, Genre, Album or by File. This is handy - particularly is you want to be discreet say on a train/tube - where you can keep the main unit in a jacket pocket or handbag.
Sound quality is good via the headphones supplied. I have yet to connect the IHP to my hi-fi or Cinema system - but you either go via analogue line out or even optical out . There are also optical & line in?s should you wish to record from an external source (non-PC).
My wife loves this for her train commute . Also, we can now scan in the several hundred CD?s we have - and listen to some old CD?s which have been in the garage for several years - because of lack of space in the house.
I have yet to find any faults with the unit, and recommend this without hesitation. You will not be disappointed.
