Been up and down in this, but the latest is that I let Anson know it was going to cost as much to ship the unit from the U.S. to China as it would cost to buy a new unit, so I wasn't going to send it to him for repair. I expected that was the end of it, bit he emailed me information on someone in California to whom I should send it. Haven't sent it yet, likely in the next few days. So, hope had been rekindled...

My DTR1 have died too. It have sung his last song just before Xmas. It have discharged and refused to turn on after charging. That's all. Power button doesn't do anything too. The Reset button and keyboard shortcuts do not help. Unfortunately it died just 14 months after I bought it and now warranty period is over.

I don't think these DAPs are very reliable, am I wrong? Is there a reason why the same problem occurs?

I think DTR1 quality is poor. This is my second player. I used it very carefully but it died. The first one periodically froze, and I had to revive it with the reset button. I changed it under warranty. So I have a bitter experience although I liked the sound of my player.

But do you use the photo taking WITH AN ADAPTER, or do you use a "normal" one that you bought separately?

What do you mean by "special"?
The wall charger is custom designed with +8.6V (600mA) and -8.6V (300mA) outputs for quick charging the internal higher voltage batteries. You only can charge the DTR1 with this specific wall charger. It’s not possible via USB.

I'm thinking a lot of the issues comes from the QC of the charger... Mine works but does have a tiny hum with load applied. The charging circuit is inside that charger to save room for the double batteries and smaller size of the unit.
