I feel compelled to chime in after seeing GB’s emphatic reply. The Fuze+ does indeed score points in terms of sound quality. I love the little guy. I have felt the goosebumps on several familiar recordings, picking up detail I had not heard in quite some time.
The touchpad interface will need a little tweaking, rest assured, but it is nice indeed, once you get used to it. Believe me, I couldn’t even begin to count the hours I have spent with the current Fuze / e200 / Clip control interfaces, and the Fuze+ is very new. Things are located differently, requiring successive “back” taps to locate my target command or file.
It’s been fun figuring it out, especially the inversion between left / right with sweeps versus taps, but it works very well.
Listening to the Fuze+ has been the most fun, it’s a breath of fresh air.
