Jukebox 3 has all the features you'd expect of an MP3 player in this quality and price range. Its 20GB hard drive is big enough for all your files, both audio and data, and the SB1394 connection makes it much faster than the USB 1.1. Not only does it record in WAV format, but also directly in MP3. Its operating system and ergonomics have been redesigned to make it easier to use. So we end up with a product smaller and easier to handle than before, plus a number of new features which make it a real technological treasure.

To sum up, it has a 20GB hard drive, an IEEE 1394 port (called SB1394 here, like Audigy sound cards), 11 hours of play for a single battery, 16MB buffer memory, and all this for a size and weight of one-third less than the Jukebox 1.
