ATTN: In order to decrease demand for our Tera-Player we will double the prices for the world's finest portable music player in the near future, which means we will phase over from regular pricing (EUR 1680,- Std. Tera / EUR 1920,- STEALTH) to junior pricing (EUR 3360,- for the Standard Tera-Player and EUR 3840,- for the STEALTH Tera-Player).
You can still place orders for the old (regular) price however either way, should consider a significant waiting time!
As the date of the price-change is not yet known, there will be no countdown this time and the switch-over can occur every day (please check with us, when you order your Tera).
We would very much appreciate at least 'some' competition in the market of high-end portable music players, because we can only supply a tiny fraction of music lovers world-wide.

You should not do that except of course in an emergency situation.
The laser engravement on the Tera-Player's rear side.
On the MAC you can use the free XLD software to load the music on the SDHC card for your Tera-Player. I have XLD configured to convert all incoming files (Apple Lossless, Flac, ogg, mp3, etc.) to WAV while copying to the SDHC card.
On the Windows PC you can use the excellent XRECODE software for converting and copying files to the SDHC card
Both work very well.
