xbox, playstation, dbox2
strictly speaking such items like xbox, playstation, dbox2 etc are not natively supporting Ogg Vorbis, and belong only to the software players page. But they might not be found there by the crowd. what do other wiki editors think about it ?
- I added a sentence (copied from VorbisHardware) about hardware that is able to run third-party software. --Blenda 09:11, 11 January 2006 (PST)
Yakumo Hypersound Car
It is not shure, that the Yakumo Hypersound Car plays OGG. May be only the UK-Version (manuals are diffrent between UK and Germany) or only over the SD Card not from CD.
- I can confirm that the UK version of this unit plays OGG from USB, SD and CD, as long as the CD drive is recognised (see links in main entry). Seantellis 08:06, 27 November 2006 (PST)
Saw this car unit on German ebay by PLU2. Says OGG on the display and plays from SD/USB. Can also record radio, but looks like that is only to MP3. That auction closed at 80 Euros. Included corporate site on main page, but can't see that unit there. Steevc 03:21, 4 July 2006 (PDT)
- They've updated their page now have you can clearly see OGG on the unit's display Steevc 09:58, 2 September 2006 (PDT)
- This unit is very similar to the later Yakumo Hypersound and the Roadstar; whith the latter having memory in the detachable front face, and a mini-usb socket to connect to a 'puter. Bodo 17:05, 28 December 2006 (PST)
- Bought the PLU2 unit: It plays OGG from CD and USB, have not tested SD yet. Neither OGG nor MP3 are gapless, USB has larger gaps than CD. Can record from radio or CD to MP3 or WMV on USB or SD. Have only tested my own (q6) files with it so far. Is there some kind of "test suite" for devices, or should I just encode something at various quality levels? Cavecanem 07:13, 21 January 2007 (PST)
- Bought the PLU2 unit and I can't recommend it. The sound quality is poor and it sometimes freezes while playing CD. --Mms 13:44, 6 August 2007 (PDT)
Merge of the Car Audio section with the Automobiles on PortablePlayers?
- Yes, let's please merge the sections. To me they should both be under static. But either page (static or portable) would be fine if there is a pointer from one to the other. I just made some buying decisions based on the static page - and I would have bought something else had I known about the portable page! Bendb 15:47, 11 September 2006 (PDT)
- Ben, I had the opposite problem - after all, a car player moves around, right, so it must be portable! I have therefore merged the Automobiles section from the portable players page into here, leaving a link from the old section. I have also normalized the formatting, and removed some duplicated information. Given the confusion as to whether this is static or portable, we might think about having a specific page for it.

I recently bought a JVC-KD-G722 This model also has a usb interface (not mentioned in this wiki) It plays OGG until q5, supports VBR (both MP3 and OGG) and plays only OGG from the usb interface (not from cd,(why not actually?) Also tagging support with ogg. This device sounds very well. I bought it for euro 135.--burdy 04:41, 30 December 2006 (PST)
Meda Systems still around?
Meda Systems' former website has been replaced by a generic link page. Does someone know what became of the company? Perhaps its entry should be removed from the Wiki, or at least the link removed. Vswitchs 10:08, 5 November 2008 (PST)
2 network players
Recently tested following material that support Ogg Vorbis : - Cambridge Audio Sonata NP-30 - TEAC WAP-8500 These both hardware are network players only. I.e. they need a UPnP server in the LAN than acts as media server.
