Shozy is not an unknown company :p. They've had a few amps out already, some discussed here too.
Poor Shozy :D.
Shozy Dap in the house, bad news ear infection and fever will not allow me to test it.
What I have been told is this device is inspired by Tera Player and tuning of it has taken an artisan approach. I was really reluctant to get this and I really did not need another dap especially one that lacks a screen but as an IEM user I had to give it a try. Will report back with all my IEM pairing one I can hear again.
