Quick impressions

On first hold, it feels premium and well made that goes with a soft leather coating. It also has a large 4 inch TFT panel with very good display for a DAP that's paired with very easy to use user interface. The volume control at the left and play, pause, next button on the right is easy to locate as well. It also has a balance output, dual micro SD slot up to 128 GB each.

On first try, even if I'm not really that technical when it comes sound, this is more analytical, has more bass, better mids and much larger soundstage compared to FiiO X5ii. Vocals are amazing here and the highs aren't fatiguing even when you pair it with the peaky VSonic VSD5.

I'll definitely take a longer listen to this and further explore what it can do, but so far I believe that it did everything right sonically to my ears. For now, it's one of the very best I ever tried.

As of the moment

It appears that the Opus #1 goes with unreal value for money at just 29,999 Pesos. It's exclusively available now at the Satchmi Store SM Megamall. For inquiries on availability and shipping message them at their Facebook Page.
