Buddha Machine:: (Gear Review)

It has a funky name, and it is, in fact, a little funky. The Buddha Machine ($23) is a little box of a music player that features headphone out and a built-in speaker. It plays one of 9 ambient chill-out tunes recorded by FM3, a duo of Christiaan Virant and Chinese keyboardist and computer musician Zhang Jian. It only plays the 9 songs that are on it, and you don’t get to “load it up” with your own tunes — but for less than $25, there’s little reason not to check one out for yourself. Hell Brian Eno owns 12 of these things.. What’s not to love!
