Playaway upgrades sound quality
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Improving sound to CD clarity through “HDAudio,” Playaway announces that their entire stock will now ship in a simplified player featuring new functionality and enhanced listening. Plus, there’s new trademark orange shelf packaging for library customers. When I wrote Playaway: Grab-and-Go Audio a year ago, the drawback mentioned by librarians was that the sound quality was not as sharp as that of CDs. Now every new audiobook title purchased in the Playaway format will be the improved version. Find out more about the new look & new sound on the Playaway website.

    I am waiting for them to come out with a solar powered or crank model. Our library budget would be eaten alive by the cost of batteries if they became very popular.

    Thank goodness! I was so excited, as a walker, when these became available. I was quickly disenchanted and went back to listening to CDs when I walked.
