Media Keg: Kenwood Updates Its Portable Music Player

Kenwood has been selling portable music players in Japan since 2006. Marketed as “Media Keg”, we last covered the devices back in September 2008, and today Kenwood announced [JP] it has refreshed the line-up after a long time.

The so-called MG-G508 comes with the following specs:

  • 8GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot, USB port
  • sound: 7mW×2 (16Ω)
  • MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV support
  • JPEG and BMP support (no video)
  • 25 hours of battery life
  • size: 98.5×46.5×10.5mm, weight: 45g

Kenwood plans to start selling the Media Keg MG-G508 in Japan next week (price: $145), but don’t expect the player to show up anywhere else soon (even though it has a Japanese/Chinese/English menu).
