Little birds began twittering several months ago about a possible little brother for the highly respected Cayin N6. Having reviewed the N6 but not yet pulled the trigger on a purchase, the idea of a smaller, scaled down Cayin DAP excited me. I'm on the road a lot, so I'm always on the lookout for a truly portable DAP (as opposed to TRANSportable, which is how I classify the N6). This discussion thread started out as a repository for information and photo leaks, desired features, predictions, expressions of excitement, etc., with insider info Cayin and other sources, sneak photos and other hints. Let us know. Now with release behind us, focus has shifted to reviews and discussion. If you want to skip the rumours parts of the thread, check Post #2 for official updates from Cayin, and then skip ahead to around page 20, where we start getting more solid product updates and discussion. Unboxing and impressions begin at page 26. If you'd like to see N5 reviews, or need to download the latest N5 firmware, check Post #3 for links.
