Hi all,

c't, one of the biggest (and one can objectively say, one of the best) German computer magazines did a review of 9 MP3 car audio systems, including the Rio car.

In terms of quality, Rio car had full scores everywhere, except for the handbook. They were criticizing a few other things (one of them was of course the high price), read the current issue of the c't for more.

I don't think, therefore I am not.

I can scan them in, don't know if I'll get in trouble for copyright violation though. :) The full article is otherwise not available on the net.

Also note that this is in German only.

Hi.

I noticed quite a few flaws in the review of the rio car player, like the number of preset of the equalizer (they said: 1, I would say: 16), the inaccurate quote about the number of bands of the equalizer etc.
I guess I have to write an email to them.

cu,
sven

Hmm.. Maybe it would have helped if they had a remote and read the manual?
