I'm happier with a faster capability DAP with fixed storage than with a slow DAP with copious amount of storage behind it.
Maybe slow with indexing or scanning files but that only happens the first time the device run a fullscan. Succeeding scan when you add a few song should not be a problem.
An external storage at least allows you to add bigger capacity in the future.
Yes I'm aware of that as I owned the DX100 for well over a year, and media scanner kicked in everytime I rebooted it, unplugged it from the PC, and inserted a microSD card. The ZX1 is an Android device, therefore the process can't be avoided, and does the same too.
The AK-series gives the user an option to manually scan or not.
As long as it does not affect playback performance which is what the device do (should do) 99%.
I actually said similar words when I had the DX100 but it was more in reference to how I'd personally use it for myself. But I wouldn't expect other users to be that tolerant and may want to switch around tracks more as it's their prerogative on how they want to use it. I dare speculate a fair proportion of DX100s sold in the classifieds was due to their performance rather than SQ.
