    It will operate as an MP3 music player.

    It is some time since I checked but I think it will do MP3 bit rates up to about 380 kbits /sec (most MP3 is less than this).

    If you plug in a USB flash drive it will make a catalogue of the MP3 files on the drive, and then start playing them.

    If you have set up the MRA to use C-Bus control, you can turn shuffle on and off, advance to next track, go back a track, and more, using commands from C-Bus switches (eg touchscreen or DLT).

    It will also send the names of each track to your touchscreen or DLT as it starts playing.

    There is a limit of 1000 tracks per USB memory stick.

    Gee Ashleigh, has been a while since you played with it. It's not possible to send track names to the DLT:(
