The Kann Max is a great portable player that sounds brilliant!!! I've picked up nuances in my music that I never noticed on my SR15 which it replaces. It is a bit heavier and larger than my SR15 but the benefits are worth it. The battery seems to perform better as well. The one item I don't understand is why, at these price points, they can't include more onboard memory than the 64gb provided. Still, I have a 1TB micro SD inside with my flac files so it is still worth it. The delivery was fast and Headphone Bar threw in a zippered case for it as well. Nice touch. Highly recommended!
