There are 512GB(!!!!!!!) sdxc cards available now and I think they don't even use the new stacked die technology, so multi-terabyte cards have to be in the offing, maybe even terabyte microsdxc. ...

The M2 seems to be an updated C2 which was a shrunk down D2. The D2 was the overwhelming favorite of many sites in the 2006 era. It was way better than anything else around at the time. Nobody had...

Certainly CD vs LP was debated endlessly in the 1980's and 1990's. My guess is production techniques have changed over time. Musical styles have also evolved but there is still good stuff being...

dx.com has some $3-ish batteries that are crap, and some $7-10 ones that are actually pretty good. I don't think I'd pay $44 for a Mugen battery even if it's slightly better than the $10 dx battery....

It's great to hear that the new battery is working out, but be aware that high mah numbers like 2430mah on 3rd party batteries are generally fake. The true capacity is unlikely to be any higher than...

Meh, adding more player brands would turn this place into ABI or Dapreview, both of which are about as moribund as this site. Actually it looks like dapreview is down or maybe even dead.

29h doesn't sound too bad... not sure what advertised runtime is but it's always unrealistic, especially if you use the fancier codecs.

You don't like the i9+? It seems like a nice player and it's small.

Main issue with the D20 and these big cards is the D20's 8000 file limit. Yes 128GB full sized cards are getting amazingly cheap, and there is now even a 256GB PNY card that was available for a...

The d2/d20 is a smaller player but not especially easier to carry than a cell phone which is probably close to X9 size. When I want a really small player I have a couple of Sansa Clips. Truthfully...

Based on feature comparison I think the D20 is a repackaged C2 with a bigger battery, rather than using the same board as the D2/+. It has 2x the battery runtime of either the D2 or the C2. What I...
