I've been listening to my E345 all this morning while my F807 charges and have to say I am always surprised at how great the sound quality is.
the E series may not have all the bells and whistles (i.e. touch screen,android,wi fi etc) but for a relatively inexpensive pmp they really do prove that even on their most affordable players Sony don't skimp when it comes to great sound.
ps - if i sound like a Sony fanboy its because i am (at least when it comes to their Walkman series) I also still have a Sony MD player (MZ NF-610) and an MP3CD player (D-NE330) I pull out of the desk drawer dust off and listen to every now and again just for a little diversity and nostalgia's sake.
I hope you get your F806 back soon and everything is fine with it.I'm also curious to know if they can fix it or will have to replace the entire player (or maybe replace the board/chips etc inside). either way best of luck.
