Bearing a striking resemblance to one of the latest generation of notepad computers designed to be used with a stylus, the PMA5 Personal Music Assistant comes wrapped in a smart black vinyl Filofax-style cover, which protects it when not in use. In fact, when it's closed, you'd think it was a Filofax, and it's just as easy to carry about. The slim silver pen-like stylus slots perfectly into a channel in the PMA's 'spine', and is used to access all the PMA5's functions via its touch-sensitive LCD display. 

Main connections -- MIDI In and Out, a mini-jack Stereo Line Out/headphone socket, and a 9V power-supply socket -- are located along the top edge of the unit. No power supply is provided, but you do get six AA batteries, with a life of about five hours. There's a socket for a start/stop footswitch, also on a mini-jack, on the side, where you'd expect the edges of the pages to be if the PMA5 really was a Filofax. As a piece of design, it's cute, clever, and covetable.

Includes stylus pen and adapter.
