I'm looking for a DAP that's simple (sturdy/mechanical interface) and not ridiculously expensive like I find most other DAP's to be. I really want to stray away from the
smart-phone-interface-like DAP'ers like the Cowon and Ibasso (which are also a bit expensive) that seems to be crammed with all sorts of unnecessary functions (why?). I just want to play my music.
The Rocoo p seems to have everything I'm looking for with a good SQ especially in the mids, which also seems to be the signature for my HD-25 II. I listen to old and modern rock, stuff like Dire straits, Jethro Tull, fleet foxes, tallest man on earth, alt-j, clapton, arcade fire etc etc.
I do have some questions though, which I need clarified. :)
- A lot of people seem to buy the Rocoo P to go with their IEM's - what should I make of this? Does it pair with my HD-25 II. In this regard should I just get a clip+ instead?
- The 10h battery life is worrisome - a lot. It sort of defeats the whole purpose of getting an expensive and sturdy DAP since (I guess) the battery eventually will 'die out' and make it impractical for use. The studio-v is out of my budget.
I'm a bit restrained by the budget and I'm considering just getting a sansadisk clip+ 4gb to save some cash. I haven't had a portable player since, forever, so I'm in dire need of one.
On the paper (except battery limitations) the Rocoo p seems to offer everything I'm looking for at a very decent price!
