I agree with your assessment of the Tera and AK240; they are not perfect but I don't think there is a better size-to-SQ player available presently. Maybe the Geek Wave, if it delivers on its promises. The warranty issue notwithstanding, the RWAK240 should make it even better (I'll know first hand when I get mine back from Vinnie), I like what I read about the mod and what a fellow head-fier had to say about it.
Be that as it may, the Tera player is truly a joy to use, especially when traveling. It's small, unassuming, long lasting, sounds fantastic, easy and fuss-free to operate -- great if/when all you want is to enjoy the music, nothing more nothing less.
