It has 256MB of RAM and an older Telechips CPU - trust me when I say that the device is sluggish and it will likely be this way long-term. It's a hardware limitation and firmware updates can only...

No Vorbis tag support? Boo to that

WMA and MP3's work, but no Vorbis love (so far). Anyone get this to work? I've historically used Picard for tags.

I just pulled the trigger on a D3

Been thinking about this for a week, and finally decided it was worth it. This is replacing my S9 (assuming I can sell my old device on FleaBay) and, to a certain extent, my Archos 32.

How is the sound versus an S9?

This thing is pricey, but I'm considering it as it would effectively replace two devices I own (the S9 and also an Archos 32) - I could sell those and it would (mostly) pay for this D3.
