JVC XA-F107B Digital Audio Player (1GB, Black)


The 1GB JVC XA-F107 (the 512MB versions are called XA-F57 ) is a sleekly designed flash-based MP3 player that would work for anyone seeking a compact and basic player with no frills. The player, which comes in black (XA-F107), gray (XA-F107H), or pink...

The JVC XA-F107 (and F57) series offers a superbasic intro to portable digital audio with its slim feature set, compactness, choice of colors, and decent sound quality.

The JVC XA-F series has no extra features, except line-in recording, cramped volume buttons, slow transfer speeds, and a relatively high retail price.

If you're looking for a no-frills MP3 player, the JVC XA-F series is not a bad choice, though it is plenty overpriced.

Expert review by:



Japanese CE Company JVC have openly admitted that they manufacture poor quality products but their latest MP3 player should never have seen the light of day.

the XA-F107 can be used to record directly from an external source, such as a CD player

Slightly clunky user interface, and we'd wouldn't be too upset if you threw this baby out with the bathwater
