I agree on TAsme comments, the UI is easy to use, clean and simple, But definitely no match to those modern player. But i like to keep things simple and nothing fancy, so i am all good. The charger is home brew and not common on the market, but reaching out to anson and get a replacement charger is easy. Therefore i dun see this as a non replacement item. It's a must have in order to achieve the design of the dtr1, which i made peace with when i bought the player a while back. However, this is my own feedback, as i prefer simple design and no BS, just good audio quality.
