Finally - a cheap FLAC player with digital out

I've been looking for something like this on Taobao for a few years now. A cheap player which includes a digital output so I can pair it up with one of my DACs. There have been cheap players, and there have been FLAC players but never cheap FLAC players - the cheapest prior to this one being a media player around 500rmb. This one goes into the pocket change category as its just 88rmb. What's more it includes Bluetooth. Order placed - will update after I've played with it.

Just received this - the heart of the beast is the Actions Semi ATS2825, some information about its features is available here : http://www.actions-semi.com/en/productview.aspx?id=195.
Whereas a connector for headphones (top right) is shown on the photo, this doesn't support any analog out (my board has no connector fitted there). Its purely digital output - a header for I2S and Toslink for S/PDIF.

Update - there's now a slightly more expensive one with analog out too : https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm...cket=18#detail

    At that price there are quite a few to choose from. For example - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm...cket=18#detail
