Yes, thanks for that. It would make no sense to release this without MicroSDHC support. Now, all I need to do is buy the size I can afford. Or wait for the 32GB card, which would be very cool (but expensive is my guess). For $50, you can turn it into a 20GB player, which isn't bad either.
While this can't compete with the Sony 16GB X1000 model (that is getting so much buzz) for style and features, I would love to hear a SQ comparison. This offers the digital amp, as does the Sony, but it also can be used as a portable amp (without the DAP), and has a 100-hour real time battery life (based on manufacturer specs, which are probably somewhat overrated).
Also, this player can be expanded with added MicroSD cards, the Sony can't. So if you get the machine for $149 from Whiplash Audio (while the intro offer is open) and add two 16GB MicroSD cards ($100), you get a 40GB audiophile DAP/external HP amp for $250? Not bad if great SQ is what matters most. Oh, I guess the FM radio is also something the Sony doesn't offer.
If the 32GB SDHC cards are less than $100, the price drops on the package as well. My hope is they are like $79.
I can't wait to hear it.
