I just noticed that Colorfly also make other DAPs, like the CK3. Might the CK3 be as good as the C3 but allow us to create playlists? What about the C4? Sorry about the continuous stream of bloody questions!
Haha, it's nothing, mate:) If I can help send you in the right direction, then I'd be glad to help you out:)
Anyways, back to your questions.
Yes, Colorfly also makes other DAPs. The CK4, according to a fellow trusted Head-Fi'er I know who has owned this DAP before, he tells me that the CK4 is a good DAP to an extent, but it is advised you take the C3 over CK4 for a few reasons: Cheaper, smaller, better battery life, and only about 20% lesser quality. So the choice between the CK4 and C3 is now up to you to decide.
Now onto the great flagship, C4. Being the flagship, I'm sure it is to outperform the C3 and CK4 anyday. It's probably the C3 times two in terms of performance and quality (Don't quote me on that). I do not own one, nor do I know anyone who has one, so I can't say anything on that, besides tell you to go look up some reviews, if there are any.
Now back to your playlist question, well...I was quite upset when I realised that I could not make playlists on the C3, but I soon got over that due to the sound quality. So, if you're picky like me, I just have to manually make playlists by making folders on the Micro SD card. So, if I want, let's say, an RnB playlist, I'll just make a folder called that and dump the songs I want in that playlist in there.
If you're also like me, how you'd like the "Recently Added" folder, well, that is also missing, BUT, every song you add, will be added at the bottom of the list, so pretty much, you'll see what you last added at the bottom of the list, which is fairly easy to access by pressing the up button, once.
The CK4, according to my mate, said that it does not have playlists, but rather a "favorites" folder/playlist. And seeing that the CK4 has similar UI to the C4, I'd assume that'd be the same on the C4 (Don't quote me on that either).
Hope I could assist you there with your needs:)
