    My Lotoo Paw Gold Diana is still working fabulously well. My next conquest is a Sony NW-WM1Z.

    I had Cayin N5 for almost 2 years, and it operates roughly the same way as LPG (I demod-it for a while). Straight-to-the-point UI, seems very efficient and fast..... until you try a DAP like Opus #1.
    Fast UI with no hick-up, everything is max 3 clicks away (including every settings), scrolling is lightning fast. And autonomy is 10+ hours despite being Android-based, because they cut the crap out of it (no WiFi no BT). You can leave it idle for almost 3 weeks before it is discharged.

    And suddenly, I can tell you you will NEVER EVER go back to good old wheels. I didn't.

    I only want LPG sound and customization with a 21st century UI that doesn't involve dozens of clicks, usb-based charging and a classier chassis.

    They have wifi , I doubt they will have full SD card.

    I understand what you are saying and I'm sure majority strongly agree with you. However the way I use portable music players touch screen can never be better than dedicated buttons which isi why for me the screenless Tera player actually is the best UI ever invented - so perfect that it cannot be improved on further because any change would either make it too big/warm, or operating it blindly while in the pocket would be impossible. And easily operating it inside the pocket with best possible sound quality for that type of device are by far the most important features of portable music player for me.

    I actually like the volume wheel :) At least for me it's a lifesaver when I test multiple iems/headphones with different sensitivity and need to quickly adjust the volume. It's a lot faster to turn the wheel than to look for volume up/down buttons and deal with a touch screen :wink:

    My favourite volume adjustment is the colorfly C4 slider.

    Yes, not only useful, also the volumes wheel actually differentiate the design of the Paw Gold from the other players, this is why I like the Canyin n5ii and how the volume wheel is incorporated into the overall design of the player.

    Agreed. Lean OS and wheel are fine. (I do not even mind the size given the battery life and power.) But I would like USB DAC functionality...

    I too love the LPG the way it is, no touch screen, no Android. But my display seems to be slowly fading, and I am not sure whether the method used by @cooperpwc to send the LPG back will work for me from the United States.

    If I were “improving” the current LPG, I would add digital out (as the Lotoo PAW 5000), add balanced output (as the Lotoo PAW 5000), add Bluetooth (as the Lotoo PAW 5000), and add the ability to search on a character string (as the iPod).

    I had the same problem with my screen back a few months ago, had this gentleman who helped me out with it. He can be contacted via email at "xuhang@iet-design.com".

    Volume wheel is always nice indeed, as long as it offers enough steps.
    And a touchscreen doesn't preclude the necessary buttons for FW/BW/play/pause, which are usually present on DAPs, as opposed to smartphones. :wink:

    I see the 5.0.1.16, but this one has been out for a couple of months.
    I’m I missing something?

    I heard claims that this affects sound. Didn't test so cannot confirm.
