I got my 550 (black one) yesterday. It is small and light, but does seem sturdy. The remote is great, and there are an incredible amount of features in the player, and I don't have the newest software installed yet.

I charged up the unit, which seemed to take less than 3 hours and then plugged in my Stax SR-001 MKII headphones. Really wonderful sound. Great bass, good midrange, slightly muffled highs. I used to equalizer to increase output in the upper bands and then all was right in the world.

I will try the unit with my Porta Pros and see how they work.

So far a very positive experience.

I saw one of these in a store in Prague the other day...

...Thankfully they've lost the toilet seat design of the 350

Who is iRivers designer anyway? - I know his / her name is embossed onto the players... is it someone famous outside of the audio industry (say in art??)

Just curious

...and hlopato... thanks for your honest opinions
