It won't sound better than a modded 120 with an intruder amp... no doubt they might upgrade the DAC's but they'll be on par with what Red Wine would have in the RW-B and its internal amp won't be a stand in next to a 71B so my money says the RW-B + ALO/RSA amp combo will outdo this smarmy new device... I still want one of course .lol. Wondering if iRiver have even taken measures to make it tamper proof or something.... if its not got TRRS or a balanced out and there's no room to squeeze one in then it's lost the battle.
Also, it will probably have a focus on video hence the larger screen, no reason for a large screen if you're not going to be watching videos, imagine if its got some Android based OS with browsing! .lol.
