Rio Cali 256 256MB MP3 Player

Lean and green! The Cali 256's olive-and-black rubber housing gives this compact MP3 player more than just super-cool looks — it provides protection from scrapes and bumps during workouts. So you can tote this little gadget to the gym without worries, and use the arm band and case to wear it while you exercise. The comfortable Sport Clip headphones were designed to stay in place while you move. And because the player has no moving parts, your music will never skip!

The 256MB of embedded memory holds up to 4 hours' worth of near-CD-quality MP3 and WMA files … but if you want to expand the Cali's storage capacity, you can always add a separate Secure Digital® card or MultiMediaCard®. It'll plug right into the player's MultiMediaCard slot. And when you want to catch your favorite radio broadcast, just switch on the FM tuner!

Overview: The Cali 256 is a portable MP3/WMA player with a built-in FM tuner. The supplied USB cable connects directly to your PC, for quick and easy transfer of MP3 or WMA files from your hard drive to the unit's 256MB embedded memory.

FM Presets: The Cali 256 lets you store 8 of your favorite FM stations in memory.

Memory Expansion Slot: For increased memory capacity, the memory expansion slot lets you add an optional MultiMediaCard or SD memory card.

Upgradeable Firmware: The Cali 256 boasts upgradeable firmware, for compatibility with future formats.

Stopwatch: You can use the stopwatch to keep track of time-sensitive events while listening to music.

Play Modes: You can choose from the following play modes:

Shuffle: allows you to play the selected tracks in random order
Repeat: allows you to repeat the current track or all selected tracks
Equalizer: EQ presets are stored into memory, allowing you to recall the best setting for different types of music. You may choose from the following presets: Rock, Jazz, Classical, Pop, or Trance. In addition to the standard presets, you can store your own settings into memory under the Custom preset.

Bookmarks: Perfect for multiple users who use the same Cali 256, bookmarks store specific player settings, including the current running order, the current track, the current time position of the track, the repeat setting, and the shuffle setting. You can save these settings in a bookmark and restore them whenever you use the player.

Resume: You can use the options in the Resume menu to set the track that the player will play whenever the player restarts. The Resume menu offers the following options:

Track: Set the player to begin playback of the last track played before shutdown or the first track in the running order when the player restarts. Settings include Current (the default setting) and First.

Timecode: Set the player to begin playback of the last track played at the point the track was at during shutdown or at the start of the track. Settings include Current (the default setting) and Start.

Power Settings: By adjusting the power settings the Cali 256 can conserve energy and extend the amount of playback time during each battery charge. You can adjust the following power settings:

Battery: Although the Cali 256 ships with an Alkaline battery, it can also use rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. The Battery option must be set to the same battery type that is being used or the battery indicator will not display the correct amount of battery life. Settings include Alkaline (the default setting) and NiMH.
Power Save: Set the player to enter standby mode after being idle for a specific number of minutes. When in standby mode, the player conserves energy and behaves as if it was shutdown, but maintains the ability to power on immediately. Settings include 1 minute, 5 minutes (the default setting), 10 minutes, 30 minutes, and Never.
Display: The Display menu lets you adjust backlight and contrast settings. The Display menu offers the following options:

Backlight: Set the backlight on the player to shut itself off after a specific number of seconds. Settings include Off, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds (the default setting), 20 seconds, and On. On sets the backlight to remain lit constantly.

Contrast: Use the contrast slider to set how light or dark the images on the LCD will appear.
