Hmm, you used the 'S' word...

Honestly, it's a poor substitute for the Clip series; it's aiming for
the quasi-oxymoronic "cheap audiophile" market. It's relatively bulky,
heavy, runs hot, and has crappy battery life. This particular model has
a better screen than most of its siblings, but that's a double-edged
Its only real technical advantage is that, due to using a bare-metal
micrcontoller, it boots up _very_ quickly compared to its nominal
"audiophile" competition.. and is only concerned with music playback
instead of apps and ecosystems and streaming services...
