It's somewhat disingenuous of head-fi members to make disparaging remarks about a music player on the basis of implied restricted functionality and cost when they haven't used nor heard the Tera-Player.
Unlike some of the aforementioned people I feel qualified to comment on the Tera-Player as I'm a satisfied owner of this marvellous player - scroll up to thread post two and you'll see - Tera-Player #2 shipped to Andrew from England ! - which is me.
As an audiophile I can tolerate a degree of restricted functionality (a GUI would of been nice ) if a player delivers sonically. The Tera-Player is astonishingly good, with a resolving, dynamic and highly nuanced sound that belies it's diminutive size. Playing lossless WAV files the music has superb vibrancy and an expansive sound stage that is both enthralling and lifelike. The Tera-Player has driven everything from IEM's, DT1350, HD650 and my LCD-2 with aplomb and authority.
Without reservation I can say that the Tera-Player sounds better than my iMod (amped with an ALO RX MKII) Sansa Clip (amped with an RSA Shadow) and my HM-801. Put in this context the Tera-Player is something of a bargain.
good to hear someone is taking one for the team..
