Finally my review is up - a 50 word taster impression for those with less time (or patience!) : Smooth sounding , less bassy than my Ibasso DX100 , this is a very impressive entry from Audio Opus and may well be exactly what some of our more demanding headfiers are looking for in their portable device. Drop dead good looks, easy GUI, 432 Gbs potential storage, great case, music only player
