    BTW, I see that you have AP100 as the one of your portable devices. Currently this is my main DAC and I'm planning my upgrade now, so how do you feel: dtr1 is a huge step forward (in all terms) compare to AP100?

    Let's say like that:

    1. Usage stays similar - size, weight, physical buttons and screen kind of close to each other. Screen is better in DTR1.
    2. UI and functions in AP100 are more advanced: playlists, EQ, etc
    3. AP100 can be used as USB DAC, transport
    4. Battery life is better in DTR1.

    5. The most important - audio quality of DTR1 is much better. Clarity, resolution, extensions, etc. It is a huge upgrade....

    The sound quality improvement - is the only one thing I care about. If it will be zero to small difference compare to AP100 - I'll be disappointed...

    New update after approx. 40 hours of listening time with the DTR1. FW 1.42

    It is a revealing DAP, which not means it's bright. Well mastered recordings will sound as good as it gets. Poorly or average mastered tracks will be punished immediately. So, 192kps MP3 might sound great and FLAC sound insatisfying, depending on the above. Don't be fooled by the format.

    Good news as well, the gapless playback functions perfectly! With a mix or compilation, you won't hear any break between the tracks.

    Ultra portable music enjoyment at its max so far. This DAP will need more love and recognition in the near future among people that are looking for that kind of sound signature.

    Only downside, we quickly get used to that level of details and clarity, undepending of the IEMs or full sized headphones. Switching back to others DAPs is difficult.

    You're all convinced me to order this little guy as an upgrade. Hope dtr1 is at least half good as a feedbacks about it)

    Good point :wink: The thing is that the DTR1 remains my at-home-when-family-sleeps DAP. No case available at the moment avoids me taking it outside. At the office, I have ZX300 and Cowon Plenue M2. Especially the Cowon is really pleasant to use, because of its great EQ features, Amoled screen and perfectly implemented Burr Brown DAC chip.

    Loving the DTR1 soundwise, it would be too extreme to sell my 2 others DAPs in order to get another DTR1 for the office, though. Touch screen navigation and some EQ features are still great to have tbh.
