Yup.  Totally agree.  We all have to thank you for helping us getting the F walkman for a very reasonable price.  Yep, the clarity on the F is pretty superb.  I still think the A, F, and Z are on the same level soundwise.  Preference is the key here.

 

Thanks guys for sharing your impressions about differences between F/Z.

I must be deaf! I cannot detect any hiss with my Z and 4.Ai ( and I am trying very hard). Could that be because I have the European version?

Z and F are two different products as well.

all are from sony, same s master mx amp so on, won't say which is better but rather which you prefer.

personally, anything with a chip on it i would go for the latest otherwise i'll go for the classic.beerchug.gif

 

I am glad I am not the only one getting that view. I have to admit I was expecting a very warm sound - the X series is the only Sony player I did listen to prior - and was somehow surprised to find the F to be so 'analytical'.

Saying this it sounds superb and I am getting very used to that sound signature!! The F series is everything you would expect from an Android player and is really responsive. Batterie life from me is consistently in the 20-22 hours which is very good considering it's with FLAC files exclusively and more often than not wi-fi is on and I am playing with the screen quite a bit!!!

What impress me the most about the F is its ability to extract details and the clarity.  My one disappoint on the F is a slow USB transfer rate.  Not bad, but I found the A & Z walkman to have faster transfer rate.  Still it is much faster than the X though.

I'm finding it very interesting to hear these early comparisons with the Z series, and even one with the A series. It seems from the descriptions that the F sort of straddles the line in between, sonically.

EX1000 and 600 goes pretty well with F. Sounds really spacious.

Just bought the European F805 (gigabytes do not mean much to me as I tend to stick to a few number of albums at a time). Very pleased with the size and design and the sound is just as great as it was on my European Z1050. I also have the X1050. I'm by no means an audiophile, at least yet, so can't really make a comparison of SQ. I'm not noticing any hiss though, and as a surprise, the stock player actually plays gapless with FLAC. Really nice improvement from having no cover or tags for WAV files on the Z. I also love Android 4.0's option to disable apps that I don't like to see on the device, that way my menu is not crowded at all and only contains what I need in a music player. No more browsers, gmail or riptide demo! (They still exist on disk and take up space though)

 

Wonderful player that I've now paired with the MDR-1RNC.

 I just placed an application to Tenso.com for the purchase of F807 through Amazon Japan.

(I found out about tenso.com today after desperately trying to find F807..it's ridiculous not having 64gb version in Korea..anyways perhaps others are interested in this if they want the F807? Or maybe there are better options? It seemed real good after seeing 650USD listings on ebay..)

 

Anyways I wanted to make sure before I buy this thing if the Japanese version can be operated in English perfectly. Can the owner of the japanese version of this thing confirm this? (also it would be good to know if this thing supports Korean as I have couple Korean songs..)

 

I have waited so damn long to get a new DAP for my flac collection and I'm finally giving into this new player and I hope for the best. The reviews here helped a lot so thank you everyone on this thread!

Well, I may not get the F807 before my trip. Sony isn't shipping it to my source in Japan until sometime this week. Fingers crossed ...
