you should be grateful especially if you was after a Euro model which you will need to amp to get any respectable volume out of it, which then puts it in the same ballpark as the WM-Z pricewise.... I have owned the A-Series & two WM-Z's and I can honestly state that the WM-Z is superior in every way to the A-Series, the soundstage is immense & the SQ is in my opinion one of the finest I've heard on any portable device, I just love the neutrality of it and never felt the need to equalize any of the settings as the stock player is so good..... obviously some may disagree with my thoughts but I do not restrict my listening to certain genres where people may be wanting something more.
What everyone is seeking is the best possible sound from a portable device, some are trying to achieve the ultimate audiophile sound from their DAP's, unfortunately I really think this is a misguided cause as all your music is compressed in one way or another and that is the basic limitation of any DAP, no matter how expensive your portable rig is, a quality basic home hi-fi system will always show up a portable device for what it is.
