Hi,
I have to buy my first mp3 player, can someone please tell me if H120 and/or
H320 allow to increase the speed in playing mode?
Thanks
Alessandra

>> Hi Colin,
>>
>> OK, to take your questions in order.
>>
>> The models supported are the Jukebox 5000 6000 10GB recorder 10GB and
>> 20GB,
>> studio 15??? And 20. Recorder V2, and FM recorder. Not the Jukebox
>> multimedia and so on.
>>
>> The reason you can't match models on retail sites is that they're all
>> older
>> models. With the exception of the developing iriver version of Rockbox,
>> there are no current models which are supported. Even the iriver models
>> are
