Hidizs AP60 Pro DAP for $80 w/free S&H [MD]

DAP DAP time at Massdrop! Fully unlocked and running for the next four days and change (from blog posting time) is the new condition Hidizs AP60 Pro Digital Audio Player going for $80 with free US shipping. This will ship in early May 2018 by Massdrop with all sales final. There is no mention of warranty in the listing.

Among its features is 2-way bluetooth control, which allows your smartphone to control it. An interesting proposition! It also serves as a USB DAC/amp when connected to a computer. It takes microSD cards up to 256GB. But it has not embraced USB-C, it’s still microUSB. It would probably be too expensive to go USB-C 3.1 given the price but at least USB-C would make connecting the cable easier 🙂

Bluetooth-wise it supports version 4.0 with apt-X. The user interface does not have a rotating center dial like the Fiio X1, but it looks to be of similar chunky size, which is good because it falls to the bottom of your pocket ~ harder to fall out 🙂
