- Cowon Plenue D: Report – A case for the Cowon Plenue D. Battery life, SFX out the wazzoo, a stable interface, good measurable sound quality, and more, make Plenue D a great player for the road. It happens to sound good, too.
- Winner: Astell & Kern AK70: Review: Astell & Kern AK70 – AK’s best yet. Great interface, decent screen, balanced output, great measurements, and a democratic price make this everyday AK DAP killer by nearly any metric. It is a shame, however, that it is as worthless with the XB10 as every other Astell&Kern player.
