Build quality:

The F20 comes in a simple box with the data / charging cable and manuals. Its made of metal with a glass like back I’m not sure if its dragontrail or polycarbonate but is cool to the touch so I am assuming its real glass. buttons are clicky and have a good feedback to them. The screen display is more than adequate. In my opinion the retro look is very appealing.

The system is easy and the first night I was up and playing DSD files in less than 60 seconds.

Sound:

This player is very forgiving and the older MP3s sounded pretty good but going into better files such as lossless formats this player shines with a pleasant clarity and a transparent quality. The 10 band EQ works great but I perter things as is, it sounds balanced without coloration. The device has enough power to run some headphones with higher impedance.

Features:

For a budget DAP this thing is packed with some useful features. It not only is a DAP but can be run as a DAC as well through USB and OTG cables, it has two way Bluetooth so despite it not being a Android device it can receive the signal from your phone and favorite app and it can also send your stored music to your favorite wireless devices.
