OK guys, I am proud to announce that I joined the crew.
I wanna thank Alex, who patientely answered to all my PMs, and who sold me the device thanks to Ok-Guys' (thanks mate ) post here.
So many other people to thank ;Turok, Way, AnakChan, Cn11, Purk and all the persons who posted here
Now my first impressions on this unit: after a few songs, I began to smile; the smile of satisfaction, of relief, a smile full of gratitude.
Would it be possible that sony released the general-purpose unit I looked for?
I was affraid I expected too much of the F807 but I am positively surprised.
I really like my other units but they all have defects which eventually frustrate me sometimes a lot: the W25 is enormous with Hip-Hop and electro (VERY DEEP bass) but I cannot appreciate Soul with it on the go.
With the Iriver U100, I can appreciate Soul on the go, but I need my in-ear headphones to really appreciate Hip hop and electronic music.
Plus it doesn't sound good with my Studiospares M1000.
So I often had to switch and match to appreciate my music.
I did not have much time to listen to the F (and to load Flac files), but I already like the sound with mp3 files.
I often had to stand up and dance (or sing) 'cause I could not resist.Surprising...
I don't feel like the sound is flat.
It is detailed, delivers beautiful trebels , with bass (good impact and in sufficiency) and dynamic when it is needed, just like my Studiospares.
I was afraid because I was not used to have that kind of sound in one of my devices, but the combo F807 + M1000 works more than fine.
I really need to listen with Flac files now.
Nevertheless, it sounds like the bass fall less deep than on my W25, also seems like it is less powerfull than my little Window.
But I need to listen more seriously to be sure, may be I am still too much used to its warm sound...
