Sony's simplest portable player.

This is a new bare-bones player. No machine LCD, no rechargeable battery, no charger. Attractive design in three colours, orange, silver and blue. The battery compartment takes the rechargeable NH9WM (or the similarly-sized NC-6WM) as well as the standard AA dry cell battery, a feature taken from the EP10 and 11. You have got to work out how to charge the rechargeable battery of course as neither battery nor charger are supplied. Buy them from me! or use the ones you have already got...

The package contains: machine, headphones, "stick" LCD remote, soft bag, warranty (claims in Japan only) manual including English section, AA dry cell battery.
