Cayin N5 DAP for $268 [DAP]

Shipping in early February 2017, the Cayin N5 digital audio player is offered for $260 plus $8~ flat shipping at members-only Massdrop. The offer runs for the next seven days but there’s a very small number of units available. Then again, these are a niche within a niche, so they may not sell out before the offer’s expiration date.

They play up to DSD128, which is the magic number, because they can accept two microSD cards up to 128GB each. It doesn’t have any user-accessible internal music storage.
