Okay, I'd like to point out that the following will not be in pinyin, Wade-Giles, or any recognizable phonetic notation system.  Think of it as the hooked-on-phonics version of what to say:

 

Shen sun, wuo yo jee tiao guh.  Tzuh jee tiao guh si wuo tuh bieh she hwan duh guh - yieh si wuo tuh bieh dong duh ing yueh.  Ching wun, nee nun bu nun bah wuo duh ing yreh fang tzai nee mien, zhang wuo ting ee ting?
 

Roughly translated, it's "Mister, I have a few songs.  These songs are ones that I particularly like - as well as music that I know quite well.  Could I intrude upon you to put this music in there [point to the damn thing], and let me have a listen?


Thanks for the effort, but I might have been exagerating a bit, my level is largely sufficient to ask them that :) It is really cute how you translate pinyin in phonetics though :)

 

Anyways I will try even better: I will ask them to loan it against a deposit over the weekend...

Sweet!  Now we have a plan!  cool.gif

 

Mimouille, why don't you take warrenpchi with you?  You know, to smooth out the edges...

Well hot damn, if you can ask that, then it appears that my job is done.  smile.gif  Ima have some scotch and chill out then.

 

BTW, I've called for reinforcements from the Diary thread to help out if need be.

Oh you know you're gonna.  But posting here makes it seem like you fought a good fight.  wink.gif  You know, if you get it fast enough, and evaluate it fast enough, you could always sell it here if you don't like it.  I would think rarity alone would make someone want it.

Yeah... Ima go out on a limb and say that nelam probably doesn't take that part very seriously.

Not yet anyway.

 

Even if it does end up being better, I'd have to weigh that against my satisfaction with the DX100, and I might not upgrade anyway...

Amyways, even if I like it so much I sell everything else I have, it will not be sufficient to convince people unless these guys give the player visibility. And so far they have not returned my mails, even the one where I pretended to be a potential distributor smily_headphones1.gif

Maybe we should start a web petition to get more information?  I don't feel that we've been sufficiently ignored yet.

I don't think that the new AR has to abide by the same rules as the White House, they may not feel obliged to pay attention to our petition.

If everything goes according to plan I am going there tommorrow with some music on my USB and requesting to try it vs. my DX100 and the Studio 3rd they also have. We will see how it goes ! And if I get out of the store with 7800 RMB less (price of both players :) )
