Looking forward to getting it back. 

Yup, you're right.  Let us know what changes there are to your 3A volume adjustment.  I sent mine back for the same reason some time ago, but nothing changed.  I don't adjust the volume much, so it doesn't bother me.  However, it would be great to have a more sensitive volume pot.

Some changes to my rig. The DAC/Amp setup has way cleaner cabling now, courtesy of Hakshop:







My coffee shop setup has gotten a little smaller, too smily_headphones1.gif:





I'm officially at my portable endgame now. Unless a slim, 24/192 portable DAC/Amp with a reasonable DAC chip shows up for Android, I'm heartily satisfied with where I'm at smily_headphones1.gif...

First impressions: using the UHA-6S.mkII, the Walkman F through LOD and Cowon D3 through S/PDIF are pretty close as far as my ears can tell. Headphone outputs are a different story: the Sony F sounds more tube-like, the D3 sounds more "digitized."

 

Sound quality is not the reason I am making the switch: the D3 is my perfect portable source... on paper. In practice it has too many annoyances to make it conveniently usable. That said, despite its flaws, when it's working, it really can sing. If you are willing to put up with slow hardware, a slow interface, a lot of app and OS crashing, very limited Android experience (i.e. can't install most apps even when rooted due to weak specs and version 2.3.3), faulty tag support, and sub-par battery life, then the D3 is one of the few ways to get a digital output on the go.

Is the F any good? I am confused between the Z and F. Seems like they are the same but one is slightly bigger.
