Simply the best sound, 7 Feb. 2013
I use this with a pair of AKG K3003 ear buds (about twice the price of the player). The sound for a portable unit is about as close to reference as you can get. I play a range of files from MP3 up to 24/96 FLAC. The latest firmware also plays ALAC (apple lossless) plus a range of others. The Wolfson DAC is the best there is and I cannot immagine returning to the rather tinny sound from my iphone 5! Getting music onto the device is simple, copy and paste (using Mac OSX) with the library auto detect on the device. Overall an excellent device for those of us who like a superior sound in portable player. However, please note you also really need the best head phones to appreciate it!
