Hahahaha, you were cool about it for exact one single day, lady.


But I have to admit, I'm getting greedy myself.

Even though a few other people thought it sounded slightly better, I couldn't detect enough of a difference to warrant keeping it over my A829.

But the 808 is as bright-sounding to me as the S639, and the IE8 match really nicely with it. The one thing I prefer on the 829 is the bigger soundstage in comparison with all my other Sony daps. Not quite on a par with the Touch 2G, but it's still good. The only 'improvement' I'm looking for in the ZX, is a bigger soundstage, the Touch has really spoiled me for that. As for hiss, it's never bothered me, it disappears as soon as music plays so I can live with it. We all have difference tolerances to different things, and I can cope with hiss.
I hope the new one has a clean output like the s639, hiss drives me nuts. Thats why I liked the 639 over the 808. I also think the highs are a little smoother on the 639, but they sound very similar indeed. S639 soundstage is improved by the IE8 for sure. I guess we will know in 2 to 5 weeks

They had an open box 8xx for 39.99 at circuit city yesterday, it's the last dap they have left, I assume it's the 4 gig model for 39.99. Hmm, hard to pass up such a deal....

the S729 was though?
Yeah, it was definitely the S639, the one with the tiny screen and FM radio. When you say the S729, do you mean the S739? There was an A729 (same as the 829 but without bluetooth) but I don't remember an S729. I get really confused with all the different letters and numbers Sony use

don't hold your breath, unless sony canada decides to be generous and move the intro date forward ( lol no) May 2009 is the earliest it could show up. The P series laptop was delayed almost 1-2 weeks, so if anything mid may for the x series. Price is another problem, there is none specified in the press release so sony can price it any which way they want now. if they price match the ipod, 399 is a good bet, but with sony who knows. If sony prices it over 400, then I will wait until the price drops.

if you want more info best thing to do is contact candice hayman

Sony.ca Press Release | NEW WALKMAN PLAYERS FEATURE A CORDLESS SOLUTION, AN OLED TOUCH SCREEN AND NOISE CANCELLING TECHNOLOGY

contact info is at the bottom of the press releasae. I've emailed her a lot regarding the sony FW laptop so I can assure you that you will receive a reply, I just mentioned if the laptop would not come out in canada, my money would go to another company :P

mention you would prefer to spend your money with sony but if a may release is firm, then perhaps another company will get your money.

Hey, Amazon.co.uk have the latest pictures on the ZX... I'm thinking it looks bigger than I remember. And it comes with a remote control

It might be tough to get that speaker in your shirt pocket
post #70 of 189
WOW.. where's the slide-out 12in touchscreen LCD? :P

The speaker come handy when commuting, no need for noise canceling function.

You can now pre order the 16GB version from Amazon.co.uk for £215. Like the 32GB version, it is expected between 2 to 5 weeks:

Damn thats expensive, isnt it?
post #73 of 189
well the I would imagine the price will relfect what is already on the market, ipod touch, and since only the 32 gb model will be in canada, I am hoping for starting price of 399.
post #74 of 189
I think i'll sell my itouch 32gb and get one of these

Looks promising

It's a shame it's so, errrr, ugly? :s

But maybe that's a good sign, and it's all about what's inside with this one.
