Conclusions

Having already played around with the SonicBlue RioVolt for a while I was accustomed to many of the LCD features it had, and the lack of them on the CD-Yepp was noticeable to me.

I don't know how particular your average person is going to be about LCD displays, but I would have liked to have seen the smiling head left out, and a little more attention paid to improving control indicators here. Ideally, the display should have alpha-numeric capabilities so as to display track titles.

My next comments are going to focus on one particular aspect of the LCD screen. While I won't go into detail about all of the idiosyncrasies it has, there was one thing that confusing. The box that the CD-Yepp ships in shows a back lit LCD, yet the player we tested doesn't have this feature. This particular point came to prominence one night while fumbling with the display trying to get it to light up so I could read what what track was playing. While it is not written anywhere on the package that the CD-Yepp has a backlight, I was a bit disappointed to see the packaging suggest that it did.

In the end, the most important aspect of any MP3/CD player is the audio quality it is capable of reproducing. During our tests with the CD-Yepp we were quite satisfied with its acoustic performance. Additionally the bass-expander is great for those eardrum rattling songs we all love.

Skip control without the use of ESP is average. Rapid movements will cause the player to stutter during playback. If you are walking around a room with the player in your hand everything should be fine. ESP naturally takes care of all these problems, and while it is engaged you can shake the CD-Yepp to pieces for up to 100 seconds before it begins to show any signs of skipping - an excellent feature to be sure.

The MCD-MP67 comes with recharging AC adaptor, battery pack, headphones, remote and instructions.
