Expert Verdict The Q1 is feature-packed at any price. I love the Q1’s big buttons, easy to use GUI and hardware interface, nice screen, solid body, and quality sound."

What Hi-Fi
"A great player which goes directly in our recommendation list. It’s a very solid choice. Sound quality is top-notch, build quality is astounding."
