Seems like Colorful had a problem deciding if they should call it Colorfly or Colorful.

post #3 of 356

What qualifies as a "Luxurious materials"? Unless the whole thing is made in gold I guess they could call it that....

Price: 499 € = $635.2769USD - Damn,..............PASS!!!

The digital out feature will be nice. Especially for use with the JH3A.

IMHO it was made in China but Colorful (a German company?) will sell it.

 

and yes, digital output will be nice for JH-3A.

Told you that yesterday!  Is that price including the VAT?  How about generous preorder pricing for an unknow product.  Someone should send them a link to HeadFi or they don't know/don't care.

It sure looks great. Wish they had a more sensible price point.... and maybe slightly smaller

post #10 of 356

I think a few people (including myself) were interested in the colorfly when it was first mentioned here in head-fi, but that was when the price was thought to be around 250 euros. 

at 499 Euros, I think it is way to much for what is relatively an unknown player (and maker) for now.

They are having a laugh with that price.

Also how can they market this as a portable player? Look at the volume switch for christs sake, doesn't look portable friendly to me.

TDA1308 ... should be a competitor to famous amp3.

post #14 of 356

Considering current prices on flash memory, they could make models with 64, 128 and 256gb (and sell these for EUR 540, 620 and 780 respectively). It is not a big difference between EUR 780 and EUR 500, and this really cool looking DAP is so huge that i doubt if there is no enough room in it.
