The Eclipse is a very smooth looking concept media player that has all the bells and whistles needed and expected. It’s got Bluetooth for streaming music from an MP3 player, radio, and built in speakers. If you want a device that’s easy to take on the go, give our Sony NWZ w252 w series Walkman MP3 player review a read too.
In a bid for counterintuitive naming, the Eclipse has a small photovoltaic cell array on its back, and its stick to a (sun-facing) window with the help of a suction cup. We wonder if it can draw enough juice to play and recharge its batteries at the same time, providing some later night-time use. If you want to see the ultimate in audio players, take a look at our HM 901 portable audio player preview.
The niftiest feature here is however a cassette-player like compartment, complete with ‘eject’ button. Not that the player can read any physical media, but it uses to compartment to hold the music device that’s doing the streaming.
