Helluva lot of goods packed into such a small unit.

If priced right will fly off the shelves
Time to get back to when I enjoyed listening......no more upgrading, more of a headache than a pleasure

Which is an AwEsOmE price

Considering and iphone 6 and Samsung S7 are 14-20k its a bargain

Colour me impressed.. Sure, no fingerprint reader or wireless charging..  But has Quick Charge 3.0, 3000 mAh battery, 3GB RAM, hexa-core Qualcomm MSM 8956 /Snapdragon 650, 128GB onboard storage, 802.11AC WiFi, LTE freq supported MTN LTE....
And since its OS is android, you know the custom ROMS are gonna be l33t!!!

It supports Dual-SIM + 1xmicroSD, and hope it supports 1xSIM+Dual-microSD.. that way I can use my 2x 200GB microSD cards, plus my primary number as it's SIM, and then use my flagship phone as a pure phone with my secondary number..
But if not, with my 50GB per month MTN data package and the GranBeat supporting MQA, I'll use Tidal and the single microSD card for what Tidal doesn't have.

I'm already on the look-out for an ulra-thin power-bank that I can stick at the bottom.

I can finally listen to awesome quality music, and also make & take calls inbetween...  Just need an app to allow me to listen in on the phone's mic, and I'll never take my IEM's off :D


BTW: My DP-X1A arrived yesterday.. and WOW!!! I am truly amazed... Feels like my Shure SE846's have finally found something portable to excel with.
