Mr. Altmann is trolling around. He can't be serious about that.

 

I think perhaps he is not quite on the same plane of existence as the rest of us....

Ridiculous.
That price is just wrong on so many levels.

You love Tera better than AK 120 ?
Please share the SQ different between these two high end DAP
Thank you
Hello Rudi. The TP is different from the ak120. The TP is the most analog and natural sounding player to me. Such sweet, smooth and engaging sound. it is the best pairing with se5. but the ak120 has more airiness, more space and more punch. The Miracles and Kaede are much better with Ak120.

And yet people will still inevitably buy it. :x

It's a good source of money for Mr. Altmann. -.-

You guys would be surprised in how much the parts cost to replicate a Tera Player but I ain't saying more than that.

I was about to say....don't startle the Tera horde!
This is not the place for the long and exhausting discussion that would follow.

Parts are nothing without his assembly code fine-tuned to generate magic driving those non-expensive parts (and good luck replicating that expensive assembly code).

By the way, why is everyone surprised Charles would set that high price? He clearly thinks (and quite a few owners across the locked threads agree) that he has the best hi-end portable player.

If this is the case why would he allow AK120 (or anything else) to be priced higher than TP?

Or perhaps he has a surprise in store for us and announces some killer new feature on new version of Tera on Jul 1 (maybe Christmas comes early in the shape of the killer 'pause' function few owners have been dying for tongue.gif).

Anyhow, I'm waiting for my TP to arrive - if it's even close as good as I think it will be I may be kicking myself for not ordering one extra (got to take advantage of those student discounts wink.gif).

I would much rather put my money into a new headphone/earphone. But who am I to judge when people spend ridiculous amounts of money on a 4-inch interconnect cable that provides a minute change in sound. XD
