I asked them to ship the unit via EMS, and I expect the deliverly tomorrow sometimes. According to bluetin, my parcel was shipped directly from Japan and there were out of stock in Singapore. So I don't know what's the deal is. They did make 5 dollars refund to my account.
I don't have the D25s.....but I have the D777, and DE905 (soon), and D-555 (soon). I also have sony D-E561, and my lovely panasonic Sl-Sx651c (with wireless remote)
My D303 was given to me by my friend (it was used). D303 has a bit warmer than the D777 in sound qualit, but it also has a sparkling high. The high and midrange were outstanding. I belive netsurfer should be able to tell u the different b/w the 303 and 25s. But to me, D303 is the best sounding discman I've heard. I hope my soon-to-be-here D555 will sound better than the D303. Looking at the features of the D555...I believe...it should be able to beat the crap out of any pcdps.
metallic casing, backlit Lcd display (amble), recargeable battery, wired remote with Sony E-472 (one of the best earbuds ever made), toslink-optical output, DDB (dynamic bass boost, much much better than those...crappy megabass), line out, slim chassis design, AA battery compartment, and a very powerful headphone amp.
