What's the outer finish like on the Gunmetal F807? It's a superb looking device, but how prone is it to scuffs and scratches?

 

Cheers!

Its metal ,front and back and is such a piece of beauty....

Looking good!

 

Looks like this will be my next DAP. Just need to find a way to buy / import it from Japan. Not buying it from ebay.. so overpriced. And maybe pick up an amp from ALO as well.

Very jealous Turok.  Those silver F807 looks darn nice.  Can you do a listening comparison in mono? bigsmile_face.gif

Turok, could you weigh the F807/S? Under the assumption it's really metal, it could possibly be heavier than the standard F80xs, which could possibly be just a rough kind of plastic. I'm not entirely sure but back then I didn't really note it.

The silver one looks entirely metal. If it weighs significantly more than 100g (Sony's specified weight for the F806/B), there could be a big difference in materials here.

aluminium body, weight just slightly bit more than the normal 1 but you won't feel the different less you put  it on the scale..

Are there Japanese importers selling the gunmetal version for reasonable prices? Seems hard to find, even on google.

I think the biggest problems for them is the shipping cost.  Japan Post refuses to ship anything with li-on in it.  Many sellers/buyers will end up with significant additional shipping cost from other shipping courier such as DHL & FedEX.  This could be upward $130 for such small item.  Since ebay also charge 9% of the shipment cost, that explains why this particular listing wants so much money for it.
