5.0 out of 5 stars
Sexy piece of kit., 24 Jan 2010
This lovely player sounds as good as it looks. It's unbelievably light yet at the same time as robust as you could ask. I've had this a year and it's still pristine even though I'm as careless a user as can be imagined.
Much as I loathe compression formats, mp3, wma etc, this player still delivers a rich, full sound. Very good bass response, the mid-tones are excellent and there's no obvious loss of high-end frequencies. The video quality is beautifully crisp and this model also supports BBC DRM video which is a bonus.
My one quibble is the lack of gapless playback. Not a problem with studio albums but a bit of a pain wrt live albums. Don't let that put you off, though, this is a nicely put together package and truly kicks the Iplods in to touch.
