F series positive thinking: There are far too many must-have gadgets. People are running out of hands and pockets. It’s time to streamline. If one device can do the job of three, it will cut clutter, save time, generate pleasure and communicate style.
simple addition: Develop a digital audio player that sounds good from every angle. Give it the capacity to handle 16 hour days and all night parties, hundreds of photos and thousands of songs. Make it solid, and make it reliable - a device that can work hard and play hard. Then load it with software that makes it a pleasure to handle, and easy to use.
a good result: gigabeat - the new digital audio player from Toshiba. It delivers the full personal stereo experience. But it also doubles as a photo album, and trebles as a back-up storage device. So it’s compatible with work and play - a tool, not a toy.
P series X series dividing line: The feel-good factor. Toshiba specialises in mobile technology - inventing it, designing it and building it. In 1985, the company created the world’s first commercial notebook PC and has led the field ever since. Its success is driven by two things: a very significant investment in
R&D (around 6% of turnover) which leads to a constant stream of innovations, and a commitment to developing technologies that measurably improve the quality of life. It’s a human-centred approach that produces elegant tools like ultra-light notebooks, tablet PCs, and gigabeat.

+ GiGAbEAT ROOm™ mANAGEmENT sOfTWARE:
Toshiba developed a software suite specifically to help you get the most from your gigabeat. The gigabeat room management software gives you simple tools that help you organise, store and manage photo and audio files via your notebook or desktop PC.
+ ONE-buTTON Cd dOWNlOAd:
CD RipRec™ lets you copy entire CDs directly into the gigabeat at the push of a button. This means you don’t need to manually move tracks into another music library first. To RipRec, just load a CD into the tray in your notebook or PC, click on the on-screen icon pictured above or press the CD RipRec button on the optional docking cradle and the entire contents are copied directly onto your gigabeat.
+ 28 usER-sElECTAblE EQuAlisER sETTiNGs:
The in-built equaliser lets you match settings to particular styles of music and find the ones that give you the best experience. You can pre-set an equaliser setting for each album and track via the room management software.
+ AdvANCEd musiC libRARy EdiTiNG:
You can edit downloaded information about your CDs via the Music Information edit window (shown). You can alter album covers, set the volume and equaliser settings for individual albums or tracks and more.
+ WiNdOWs ® COmpATibiliTy: gigabeat is right at home in the
Windows environment because it uses the native File Allocation Table (FAT) filing system - no need for a translator. This makes for seamless integration and ease of use. So backing up any files onto a gigabeat for storage or transfer is a straightforward exercise. It also means gigabeat can handle all of the main Windows audio-file formats – MP3, WAV and
WMA. You can also manage your music collection via
Windows Media Player 10 if you prefer.
MP3 (.mp3) - a digital audio compression format that creates smaller file sizes by eliminating information that codes for sounds the human ear can’t hear or doesn’t easily pick up.
WAV (.wav) – an uncompressed audio format that became the standard audio file used on PCs.
WMA (.wma) - Microsoft’s audio-compression format.
+ GRACENOTE: gigabeat gives you access to
Gracenote ® – the world’s largest digital media database. When you load a new CD, the gigabeat room management software can log on to Gracenote, search the database and download and display the artist’s name, album title, tracklist, music genre and other related information automatically and instantly (requires internet access). This becomes the key to organising and managing your entire music collection. It makes it easy to search for tracks, albums and artists, create playlists and explore genres.
Gracenote is the industry standard for digital music identification of
CDs and individual music files. It uses multi-step recognition methods to identify, categorise and organise digital music. The database now contains information on over 3.8 million CDs and 48 million tracks.
+ sRs WOW ® diGiTAl: gigabeat comes with the famous SRS WOW digital sound enhancement system. Toshiba selected SRS
WOW technology for gigabeat because it dramatically improves the dynamic audio performance of compressed audio files like MP3.
See your nearest Toshiba Authorised Retailer for gigabeat accessories – there’s a wide range available, including speakers, FM transmitters, headphones, docks, pouches and more. Or look out for these compatible brands – Toshiba (of course!), Belkin, Targus,
Logitech and many more.
