    This is crying out for a Questyle QP2R comparison.

    My thoughts exactly! L&P L6 or QP2R?

    How does the club199 version compare to the normal L6?

    • Reply May 13, 2018


      Good question but it’s so limited that we didn’t get one unfortunately

    Yeah a qp2r comparison would be ideal.

    Any review on upcoming L&P L4 please?

  • Reply October 4, 2020


    This review is from 2018. Did the manufacturer update this DAP to increase it’s files capacity ?
    6000 was not adequate.

      I don’t know if they did it with a fw update for this particular player. But for the latest P6, they did remove the 6K file limit. finally!
