Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I received the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player from their [kickstarter campaign](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/873263862/hidizs-ap80-next-generation-ultraportable-hifi-mus). After that, I received a tracking number which is of no use because of course, I already have the unit here and it shows as “Delivered”, so it came as a surprise and was shipped by Amazon since they fullfill US orders from them.

So, here’s my unboxing video that I recorded of this tiny (smaller than I expected) audio player. Enjoy!

You can download this new release at GitHub here: https://github.com/moisesmcardona/opus_gui/releases/tag/v1.4 Enjoy!
