Some DAP (digital audio player) deep cuts (the music term, not a deep discount reference) action, running at members only but free to join Massdrop for the next four days and change is the new condition Colorfly C10 DAP for $180 with free US shipping. This is only available in the blue color scheme. It ships in late March from Massdrop with all sales final.

I need to find my prehistoric 32MB (yes, megabyte) DAP and see how it does today. I believe it used AA or AAA, so it shouldn’t have built-in battery is dead issues 🙂

This is one of multiple K5** options, so if you are not familiar with them, google them around. The price is certainly right on this one though.
