Being realistic and for the relatively modest cost of this DAP, if it sounds appreciably better than my Zune and iPod without an additional amplifier, then I will be very happy. Audiophiles expecting musical nirvana for under $300 are either deluded or seeking perfection way beyond this products price point.
no wonder why peolple like Charles from Tera come up with these $1200+ daps, deluded people just buy into these "audiophile stuff", if Charles had come up with a dap like the ipod how much he would have charged? $10,000 lol. but I guess you're happy with your audiophile tera player or the 901.
