The "Saber" hand wind digital player

The "Saber" hand wind digital player

The Saber is a solid-state digital player with hand wind power.

It has an amplifier, speaker and sound box, so it can play at significant volume with good quality. This makes it ideal for use in groups. It handles speech and music equally well.

The Saber is powered from internal rechargeable batteries. A built in generator allows the machine to be recharged by turning the handle. External power sources, such as AC/DC power packs, solar panels, or batteries, can also be used to recharge the machine.

Operation of the device is simple, and can be easily mastered by people who are not literate and not technical.

The Saber plays recordings in MP3 and WMA format, stored on it's internal memory or an optional SD memory card. Sound files can be loaded onto the machine via a USB port. Optionally, GRN can load the machine with the desired recordings prior to shipping.

The Saber player builds on the extensive experience GRN has in hand wind playback devices. It has greater reliability and better sound reproduction than cassette players, for about the same cost as the Messenger II player.

The Saber has been designed particularly to enable the gospel to be presented in audio form to remote people all over the world. It is also ideally suited for other humanitarian purposes.
