Your judgment of impatience notwithstanding, this is slow by any standard.
Well, my Cowon X9, with 32GB internal memory and a 32GB microsd holding a total of 59GB of tunes ( 7,170 at an avg. of 219kbps) just took 42 seconds to start up from being fully shut down (as opposed to just sleep mode). Not bad for having 3 weeks,. 5 days, and 15 hours worth of music on-hand. And it has twice the internal memory of the old D2.
I'm not posting this out of any devotion to the Rocoo player, which I have not used.....just posting to point you're being a bit impatient, as previously suggested.

Indeed, the old D2 had a rather muddy and dull sound unless you went nuts with the EQ...the newer models sound far better, both at flat settings, or with tweaks applied.
