post #46 of 477

VRC-NW10, did a search and it cost $180+, capable of recording video on A820, as well as video out

I think it looks pretty cool.

It looks pretty good to me. I kind of like the curved sides of the A818 though a bit better.
Anyone want to buy an A818??

Nice! I do wished it had the rounded buttons(back and option) of the 818 though, those look like they might be harder to hit with big fingers- not that thats going to stop me from buying it anyways I also hope they use the same cirrus logic chipset.

looks like the walkman division cooperation with the cellphone division has finaly paid off for the dedicated dap, it looks good, still has that damn WM-Port, but sony will be sony, if it syncs and can be loaded trough bluetooth, then i can live with it, but if the BT is for audio streaming only, i dont feel like paying 35 bucks for a new cable if it breaks,

Sexiest looking DAP yet. I really like the form factor for this, looks like a child born with the perfect genetics between the ^10 and A810 family.

Looks to be more of a successor of the S610 rather than a direct successor to the A810 family (design wise) however, but it doesn't matter since both those DAPs look sexy anyway X3~~~

So in line to get one...

Does anyone want a Cowon D2? <_<;

I can't find where I read the prices ,but the dock is $180.

The 8gb version is supposed to sell for $260!

The 16gb is supposed to sell for a ridulous $350!!!

Sony better rethink the prices. The 81X is priced far more competitively.

taking in to account creative has lowered the 32gb zen to 350, and samsung is gonna realease a 16gb P2 for 250-300 also for end of Q1 or start of Q2, the 350 price tag might be hard to push,

The 16GB A919 (looks very similar to the A820s) is about ¥35000, which is around $328. I think they're the same feature-wise, minus some features. I know that the A919 has that 1seg/ワンセグ TV broadcasting thing, so that can probably bring the price down a bit assuming it does not appear in the A820s.

...now I'm in a dilemma: wait for the A820s and return the A818 that's coming my way, or enjoy the A818s for now.

I don't like the border on the screen, wish they could have made the body width smaller.

I like the A818 controls, maybe because I'm right handed
post #56 of 477
If its priced too high I'll go with a A818 myself.

Beautiful player....To bad there wasn't an 80gb hard drive stuck in there...and the ability to play lossless....and the ability to have a line-out without a dock...Then I would most certainly buy one.....Oh well I can always dream...

assuming form the site and the earphones on the pictures (MDR-NC022) one could assume it has noisecancelling built in...

Is this a standard feature or just in some models, or worse, Japan only?

Check this video out

i don't think this will be coming to canada anytime soon so good for me since I just bought A816 not too long ago and I like it

Thanks kite7 for letting us know about the video.
A820 looks quite nice but I think I will stick with my A818 for a while.
