Before we step into the introduction, I would like to talk something else about this magical classic and retro player. I was deeply attracted by its look at the first glance. It reminded me of the cassette with recording, playing, and learning in childhood, and it was also the only bridge for me to keep my curiosity about the world.

Let's move into its parameters.

Highlight:
1. Sound performance has its own rich characteristics, that's undeniable!
2. The function of the whole button blindly realizes the pause, fast forward and backward as the cassette player.
3. The volume control is independent so that it has a sensitive response and the volume adjustment can be free.
4. Play dual 3.5mm out or 4.4mm out synchronously.
5. Non-touch screen, with button operation.
6. The HOTLINE button can help you obtain the information while listening to music without taking off the headphones.

Yeah, the price is kind of scary. They also didn't mention amp power specs. The lack of album art and an internal touch screen is also a bummer. Love the aesthetic, and it has some really cool features, but at $2199 more could be done.

$2,199? I don't think that's an appropriate price. Unless if it was difficult to make this.

Reminds me of my Portable Battery Charger.
