Alcor Lux MP3/MP4 player

We can navigate within the menu by shaking the device, it has digital balancing pole, pedometer and virtual dice functions as well. All of these are made possible by the built-in accelerometer (G-sensor). The design of the device is magnificent.

The elegant steel body is slim (only 8 mms)  and the device has touch sensitive controls with red backlight. The 2.8” QVGA display is sharp and has perfect colours. Sound quality is also superb which is assured by the Hi-Fi Wolfson audio chip. Besides playing back the standard MP3/WMA/WAV formats, Lux also plays back FLAC and APE files. Customizing the sound is also possible by 5 band EQ and 3D surround sound effects. Other features are: built-in FM radio with recording function, voice recording through the built-in microphone with volume control, playing back digital photos and E-book (TXT) reader.  It is also great for playing back video files as MPEG4 (XviD) AVI files are supported. The device also comes with three pre-installed games with great graphics: the tank battle, pirate ship and space invasion. The latter provides a whole new way of playing controlling it by the device’s G-sensor.

Lux comes with 2 or 4GB built in memory and with its USB 2.0 connector it can be easily used as an external device.
