Review Summary

The YP-K5 from Samsung is the latest digital audio player and the first to feature an integrated speaker. It comes in three basic capacities, 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB, and supports MP3, WMA, OGG, and ASF media formats. The unit offers a unique and stylish design that features a built-in, slide-out speaker. If you flip the player onto its side and then push on the bottom edge, the built-in speaker emerges. That speaker then angles the unit to create a good viewing angle and to direct the sound up at the listener. Reviewers indicate the speaker as a bit tinny sounding without a great deal of bass. But for the size of the unit, it is relatively robust sounding, and quite loud to boot. The interface is considered nothing short of stunning and the device includes an FM radio and other visual effects. The Samsung YP-K5 player offers great sound quality and includes a set of earbuds that are deemed to be above average.

Strength of the Samsung YP-K5 player is again a drawback as well, as the speaker makes the YP-K5 a tad large and heavy for a flash player. The touch controls take some practice and the display screen could be bigger. The unit is also on the more expensive side. The music menu is complete with the usual full set of choices including artists, albums, and playlists. When scrolling through options a bouncing sphere appears (we mentioned the interface). Other reviewers tuned in to the top menu that features sections represented with different images. Headphones representing music, a symbolic wrench for the settings, all made up of animated blue dots. The when you shuttle through the options, the dots morph into the next image. If you are into style from the interface options, then the K5 will be fun to use to say nothing of its superb sound options.
