Screens add noise. Also all size and power requirements. It also makes a player reliant on you taking attention off something else to change the song. Why bother? I can navigate my Tera Player while it's still in my pocket, by telling a friend to keep hitting the next button, and many other situations. It's really convenient knowing I dont have to look.
Also, it sounds like you wanna pay $1200 for a Tera Player and a nice packaging and accessories? It could even cost more. That's ridiculous. The Tera Player is built like a tank, it doesn't need a case really. Each person will use it with their own headphones or IEM's as they wish, so a case for traveling is pointless. A point that could be made would be to have the PortaPro's included but they're so cheap it's easier for shipping just to buy them separately. What exactly did you mean about extra goodies or accessories?
Just got a hold of this little thing..
impression: this thing sounds like a $700ish desktop dac perhaps.. definitely better in technicality and musicality than my CA dacmagic. the music is just flowing, very black background, very neutral sounding. this little thing is standing way above my $400 CA dacmagic as a standalone dac. impressive..
but i still can't overlook the lack of screen over the beautiful sound of this sweet little thing. plus the packaging is just pure rubbish, $1100 wav player with nothing but plain carton as its box? no extra goodies or accessories? you gotta be kidding me!
