Hi All,

I have had troubles in the past with hardware that claims to play MP3 files but in practice does not play the files properly. I think it would be really useful to know which hardware devices FULLY support MP3.

By fully support I mean:

- playback of all the bitrates up to 320 kbps
- correct handling of VBR (showing correct playback times)
- no introduced sound glitches

Please feel free to reply to this post stating which devices offer full MP3 support in your own experience.

RD.

PS: My experiences... I know that the XMS-750 DVD player (only CBR) and the VOXSON-250 DVD player (plays VBR and 320 kbps but introduces sound glitches) both do not fully support MP3. I have a Kenwood MP727 CD player which seems to fully support MP3.

Ah, yes - my son-in-law had the same problem initially, but the problem was in the disc format.  If you burn the disc as an MP3 music disc in either Easy CD Creator or Nero, it should play fine.  If, however, you create a data disk containing the MP3 files, it won't play.



????? Isn't an mp3 disk a data disk?

My Apex 600 dvd/mp3 only supports 1 level of directories,
only the basic CDR format (no cdrw, no "direct-cd"), and
goes ape when it finds data at the end of an audio CD.
Displayed file names are, I think, limited to 8 characters (the
".mp3" is suppressed in any event)

I also have an RCA 5 disk cd/mp3 that seems to play my files ok, mostly
VBR at nominal 128 or higher but also some mono recordings at
low bit rate and 22 khz sample rate. I got it because you can navigate
with the built in display... most/all DVD players you need a TV to see the
track and directory names.
The biggest downside is it takes a long time to scan a disk when first inserted, or on power-on.
While this is going on you can't stop or open the drawer.

edit: to address one of the original post points, I just burned a few tracks at 320 kbps
joint and straight stereo CBR, and the highest VBR setting (on dbpoweramp converter
using lame encoder).
No problem on playback.
