Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., announced the gigabeat T400, the company’s first flash-based portable digital media player featuring high-end audio H2C audio enhancement technology and support for WMA Lossless audio files for $119.99. Toshiba has also expanded its recycling program to include its gigabeat portable media player lineup. Toshiba’s gigabeat T400 incorporates H2C technology to improve the quality of compressed audio for an unmatched listening experience. H2C technology enhances the quality of MP3 and WMA audio files by restoring some of a song’s treble & bass signals that get lost when tracks are ripped.

These functions are enhanced through a 1-bit digital amplifier, and DCTSC filter, which reduce noise in audible frequencies.
