After updating my stash of empeg software with Mark's latest offerings, I came across a few videos featuring our favorite device that were sitting on my hard drive. I decided to stick them on Google Video since they weren't there already and may be hard to find. Maybe this thread can serve as a pointer to other videos that may be of interest.

Wow- that was almost a slap in the face! "Highlight" isn't the word I'd use- more like "glosses over".
Sheesh! No respect!
EMPEG IS TEH ROXXOR!!
BOW BEFORE THE MIGHTY PENGUIN OVERLORDS!

THAT video sold me on the empeg. The visuals, the "8 seconds to music", the fuzzy steering wheel... instantly dispelled any doubts about hard drive based players.

If that clip was playing in movie theaters back in 1998 during the pre-show commercials, SonicBlue would be the common household name next to iPod.

Yep me too. I believe there was a thread a while ago about how many people were sold on the empeg after seeing that video.

Does that dimmer fix correct the problem where the brightness is set to 100% but looks dimmer until I lower then raise it back up ?

Agreed. That video helped me decide as well. And, yes, the dimmer fix should take care of that.

I never saw the video until now. I knew it was the player for me from the feature spec alone.

wow... I'm just getting around to visiting this site after a very long time. I can't believe it was almost 7 years ago that i made that video... lol. I still use the empeg every day! I've gone through 2 already, so this is my 3rd unit. I still have my 2nd one as a spare and the 1st one I sold a long time ago. ...Boy, that video brings back memories! Thanks for the post Rob!!

Thanks to everyone who posted and said it helped him or her to buy an empeg. Itís really nice to hear back from the bbs community.

i just went looking for this video... and once again, 8 years later, i can't believe its been like 15 years.

i can't find the video... i just went looking for it to show someone and to have a good laugh....

does anyone have the edited version they can send me or repost? i took a quick look and only have the source, un edited video, but not the edited version... at least, its not tagged for easy find.

It's on Youtube now, but contains some copyrighted music. So, it may or may not play depending on your locale.

This video made up my mind when doing the original purchase.
Every time I hear the music from this video I think back to that day when I first watched the video. Thanks for that!!
