Sony Walkman X Series 32 GB Video MP3 Player w/ OLED Display

Sony Walkman X Series 32 GB Video MP3 Player w/ OLED Display

“This Sony X has been my mainstay DAP for a solid year and a half. That alone should speak to its staying power. Prior to this unit, I'd been through DAP after DAP trying to find the one for best audio quality. Now I have found it. Even the much touted AMP3, being the supposed 'audiophile' player, was not on the same level. It is not perfect though, possessing a nearly worthless web browser- but...” --cn11

PCM-M10 Portable Digital Recorder

PCM-M10 Portable Digital Recorder

“ This might seem like an attractive portable digital recorder BUT there are better options available. I would urge everyone to carefully consider the alternatives available as there are better recorders at this price point.   The only positives I see about this recorder is the affordable price, the big screen, decent sound quality with external mics and 4GB internal memory. THAT'S...” --LFF

Sony NWZ-A818 8GB

Sony NWZ-A818 8GB

“The smallest, toughest, yet great sounding player you can buy. Though that really depends on your luck, but it can be found for as low as 20 euros on eBay, other classifieds, or your local electronic pawn shops. Having bought mine in 2008 as a birthday present, and been listening to it primarily as a main on-the-go DAP now and then, there must be some nice and critical things to be said about...” --stuartfang

Sony Walkman NWZ-A10

Sony Walkman NWZ-A10

“Compared to Fiio x3, there is no big differences in terms of sound to me. One thing X3 wins, is better bass response with my ES10 headphones. At first i missed sound of my Fiio X3, but i got use to sound signature of A15 and now i would say those players are in the same tier. It has plenty of volume to drive even more demanding headphones than ES10, but i would expect, that more demanding...” --vincik

Sony Professional Portable 24-bit Linear Audio Recorder

Sony Professional Portable 24-bit Linear Audio Recorder

“ I bought this Recorder last year from a online shop, after I had been listening to both M10 and D50. By percentage, I'd say the sound quality of D50 is 20-30% higher than M10, but in my opinion, 20-30% means the difference between perfection and damaged goods. ” --Casa

Sony d 303 discman

“ i own around 4 of them before.  d303 has the best phone out.  I love its detailed and warmed sound signature.  I found the sound quality beat all the recently mp3 players as of 5/11/201.  It also has very good line out but d555's line out is better than d303.  the optical out is a plus if you use it to sync with your mini disc.   d303 has most...” --faichiu

Sony PCM-D100 Portable High Resolution Audio Recorder

“People might think using recorders as a DAP is non-sense, but the replay performance of D100 is truly amazing.   The playback portion of D100 has be optimized comparing to its predecessor D50. It can also playback flac and aac regardless of its inability to record in those format. It also feature multi language interface. build quality is outstanding, full metal construction. It also run...” --10shot9miss
