Singapore – With its latest range of GoGear audio and video players, Philips
sets a new standard in sound quality on the go with its patented FullSound™
technology that brings MP3 music to life. One of the main criticisms made by
portable MP3 player users today is poor sound quality playback from MP3
formatted music that often comes across as flat, dull and lacking in detail.
This is because much of the sound information is lost when the music files are
resized to fit on the players. Music enthusiasts won’t accept this. They want
their music playback on the go to be as close as possible to the sound
performance of their home stereo.

Philips next-generation GoGear players

GoGear SA52 series

Top of the range is the SA52 series boasting a crisp 2.8” color screen for
videos, photos and album artwork. The superb sound experience is supported with
the addition of premium quality Angletube earphones. The curved earphones
feature an ergonomically-designed Angled Acoustic Pipe that is shaped to
precisely channel sound waves directly to the eardrum, and as a result minimize
sound distortion.

The SA52 supports a huge selection of video and audio formats and features an
integrated FM radio tuner. Supported audio formats include MP3, WMA and AAC,
while AVI, MPEG1, 2 and 4, DVD (vob), MOV, WMV, RM and WMV videos can be enjoyed
on-screen.

The player comes with 2GB to 4GB of storage space and delivers 30 hours of music
or six hours video playback after each full charge.

The SA52 also comes with a Bluetooth-enabled 4GB version for stereo audio
output, providing ultimate wireless entertainment on the go.

GoGear SA32 series

Philips also offers the smaller GoGear SA32 player, which delivers the same
sound quality with a bright 1.8” color screen and comfortable earphones. This
player provides identical audio and video playback and synchronizing with the
Windows Media Player. It delivers up to 20 hours of audio or four hours of video
playback when fully charged.

GoGear SA28 series

The smallest model with FullSound™ is the GoGear SA28. This chic and compact
player brings high quality music quality to a pocket MP3 player. It features a
sharp OLED screen, an easy-to-use drag and drop music transfer system, and 20
hours of uninterrupted music playback.

The FullSound™ technology

Philips has used its expertise in music reproduction and the latest Digital
Sound Processor (DSP) technology to create FullSound™, which analyzes the music
signal and enriches it by dynamically enhancing the frequency spectrum and
density. FullSound™ restores the emotion and warmth to music that MP3 takes away
– achieved by faithfully restoring sonic detail to compressed MP3 music.
Performing 10 million operations per second, the signal is reprocessed before it
is sent to the speakers, without adding unwanted noise or distortion for
naturally clean, warm and powerful sonics.

/softest and highest / loudest reproduced sounds – when FullSound™ is on (right)
and off (left). In order to experience the effect of FullSound™ go to
