The used DAC is an S-Master from Sony :
What headphone do you have? The F807 is geared toward clarity & details. Treble heavy headphones may not be a good match. A headphones with warmer and neutral tonality will work great with the F walkman. Bass is tad less than the A in quantity but the F has tighter bass.
Hey guys, I just got the 806 waiting to test it with the new PHA-1 and discovered something new by accident: it will stream to my Klipsch G-17 with the Media Player (party stream off) that only suppose to support AirPlay! I don't have any other AirPlay device to test this whether it is a fluke or not, so if any of you have a 8 series and an Apple AirPlay speakers, then please test this out. Thanks.
Just head over to a Sony store and hear one for yourself and stop whining...
Seriously Kvud..we did answer your questions - several in fact. The best thing to do is to audition prior to making the purchase. Oh, we still think your Japanese Z is broken.
Can the F series be bought in Canada?
Edit: just saw the E580 released with 77 hours battery life and FLAC support...and will that be launched in North America?
Will the E580 support 24/96?
I'm planning on getting the F807 as it is 100 bucks cheaper than the comparable Z model and I don't need video. Can I sync it with my library using MediaMonkey or a similar library manager or do I have to use Sony's software?
It's drag and drop, so even Windows Media Player will sync with it. But again, the Media Go isn't half bad.
