but before you sell your F807 you may want to wait until you receive your A17 and have a chance to compare the two players

i've read in the forums here and seen in other online reviews by people who own both the A17 and either an F800,F880 or ZX-1 series player that the latter android based players have clearer resolution,more authoritative bass and much better soundstage.

granted we all hear different and as with any audio equipment YMMV depending on everything from your age to what headphones or iem's you use along with your primary musical preferences and so forth, but .if you sell your 807 now you may end up regretting it,whereas if you hold on to it until you have had a chance to familiarize yourself with the A17 then still want to sell the F807 that option is still there. i plan on pulling the trigger on an a17 later this year though will be keeping my F807 as it has  great synergy with my grado's (and all my headphones really) and ibasso d2+ boa amp/dac. either way I'm interested to know your thoughts on the A17 when you get it.
It is a very good advice indeed

I love the way the f807 sounds but I need more storage. Hoping the A17 isn't a big step down in sound quality. I should be receiving it tomorrow so we'll see. Thanks for the advice

Let us know your thoughts here please. I'd like to grasp how it sounds next my F806.

Hey guys, for those how tried the line out of the player .. Does it skips the internal amping totally ?? I mean not a pseudo line out and skips the s-master amp

And there is two volume of playback: The music volume & master volume what is the recommended setting for that through the headphone out ?

Does the line out skips both of them or what ?

Not possible with the F806/7, you have to get the F886/7 or ZX1 and the PHA-2 or 3 for a complete bypass.  And yes, the WMPORT line out skips both control.

Your first part of your answer was about the digital out not the analog out ,right?

And i have an other question : While i do love the sound signature of the player , the treble is a little noisy not smooth or detailed it just not sound right .. And i saw in a review ( soomal) that the s- master circuit is the cause of that as he determine that too .. That is why i am thinking of a quality amp to solve that problem!

Honestly that ( non right treble) is with some songs only

Yes, the F806/7 WMPORT line out is for analog only.  Also I suggest you look into the new NWZ-A15/16/17.

Oh .. Practical devices.. It was long time ago biggrin.gif !! But what a respectable and very beautiful amps .. I am thinking about them but heard that RSAamps have better sound quality ...
