Finally, the new Sony 64gb A Series in the USA!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 64

299 for a 64GB would be really great.  That's quite a bit cheaper than the ipod version.

That is good news, however, will it really be cheaper than ipod touch? And.. will it work with itunes? Checked on their website, they say it should work with itunes, but again this is sony....but the biggest thing is..FLAC.

 

It's gonna be an interesting comparison with Cowon that can play flac, though of course will have to add a micro sd card.

 

This is gonna be interesting.

I'm just hoping Sony finally does us right w/gapless playback - just having gapless for .WAV sux,...and I personally could care less about lossless. That's just me, YMMV.

Don't hold your breath.

Not linked to the A-Series but Sony has released a new Walkman Phone: The W8.

GSMArena reviewed it and made a RMAA if you want to check it out: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_w8-review-612p4.php

 

Apparently it ain't too bad in term of sound. But i have to admit that I never tried to understand those RMAA tests :p

I never planned on it,...like waiting for responses in threads - they come when they come. wink_face.gif

Yeah, I saw that on Play too.

Did you check the Technical Specifications? Here they are (based on play):

 

  • Sony Walkman 16GB Wireless player
  • Wireless file sharing
  • Wireless music streaming
  • FM radio, karaoke
  • Lyrics & iTunes sync
  • Aluminium body

 

So I guess that Bluetooth is integrated (or maybe even Wifi but I really doubt about it...).

 Looks good. However, this will unfortunately come with the EU volume cap so I don't think I will bother unless I buy one from Japan.frown.gif

Well, looks like there will be no X Series successor if this is gonna have all the X Series features. 

 

Le's wait for higher capacity models and see the pricing.

post #26 of 64

I many industries "X" models are considered eXperimental.  As Sony's first Touchscreen model it seems reasonable that it might be the only one they make with an X designation. If the new A is Touchscreen with most of the X1000's features, then IT is an offspring from the X.

post #27 of 64

This player looks great! I think when this comes out in the US I'll probably get one. Though I don't mind using a Japanese A series now, this new model being in English would be even more handy to use, I just hope it won't be overpriced.

This just makes me happy I waited & didn't get the Cowon C2,...Muahahahahahahaha!!! This is heaven for me, and even without gapless (we'll eventually see if they give us what we want) I'll get myself one. USA bound, WooT!!!!! beerchug.gif Plus in the USA there is no EU volume cap,...sweet!!!
