testing: Music throughout the home at your fingertips.

MERSEYSIDE company has launched the first touchscreen digital music player in one of the biggest developments in the audio industry for years.

The MPZ Player allows music lovers to store their entire CD collection and then organise and play the music of their choice using a state-of-the-art touchscreen computer.

The system, created by Birkenhead firm RedTen Audio, gives people the ability to select and play tracks and create their own play lists of their favourite music.

Adding a new CD to your collection takes only a few minutes and requires the pressing of just three buttons on the screen.

The system, which will retail for pounds 1,899, allows people to listen to different tracks at the same time in up to three different rooms in the home.

Audio streamers, the size of a large book, are designed to sit on a bookshelf or sideboard and connect to speakers. They are operated by remote control, allowing the user to select play lists, individual tracks and volume level.

Music and favourite play lists can also be downloaded to fashionable portable music players such as iPod and Rio Karma.

Trevor Bond, director of RedTen Audio, said: 'Digital audio is the future for home Hi-Fi systems, storing your entire music collection and having instant access to tracks that you want. The MPZ Player allows these dreams to become reality.'

The MPZ player is only80mm deep and comes with a wall mount or an optional desktop stand. It supports five formats for digital music - WAV, WMA, MP3, OGG Vorbis and AAC.

RedTen Audio, which is a subsidiary of Merseyside company RedTen Computers, will be selling the MPZ Player direct but is also aiming the product at leading department stores and specialist music suppliers.
