We always welcome a revamped product, and the A3 is just that. Cowon took the already highly rated A2 and gave it just a bit of a face-lift. The A3 is swathed from head to toe in shiny black, with just a bit of silver on the controls. Also, unlike the A2, it comes ready to support DRM-protected content from services such as Rhapsody and Yahoo Music (subscription included). The A2 review has plenty of relevant details for you to absorb, but here are some key specs:
- 4-inch new TFT LCD
- High-quality TV Out: Component S-Video
- Supports H.264, WMV7/8/9, DivX 3.11/4/5/6, XviD, MPEG-4/-2/-1, D1: NTSC 720x480 / PAL 720x576, 30fps
- Document viewer: MS Office Hangul PDF, and etc.
- Audio: MP3, OGG, WMA, AC3, WAV, FLAC, APE, AAC
- Acts as a USB host
