RE: The tariff classification of a network music player from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Brady:

In your letter dated July 19, 2004, on behalf of your client Roku LLC, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question is denoted as the Soundbridge Network Music Player. It is a self-standing networking device that can either be connected to the Ethernet by wire or through a wireless radio frequency connection (WiFi). Once connected by either method it is designed to download music files from a PC. It is designed to playback music files selected by the listener. It can support MP3; WAV and AIFF music formats for playback.

The applicable subheading for the Soundbridge Network Music Player will be 8520.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Magnetic tape recorders and other sound recording apparatus, whether or not incorporating a sound reproducing device: Other Other. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Michael Contino at 646-733-3014.
