I haven't had enough information about this atm, accidently found this piece of news on the Sony's software download/service page.
The image looks pretty real tho.
Check it out!

I've never viewed these units as DAPs. The reality is, I believe their sole focus has been on the recording aspect and as recorders, my old D50 as well as my M10 are unbelievably fantastic. With the right mics (or whatever other source you desire), their accuracy really takes advantage of the source's capability and the results are astounding every time for me - one of the lowest noise floors I've ever had the pleasure of working with and solidly built.
I'd love to know what the specs for this one will be. I'm also curious as to why the guard around the recording level dial seems to be snapped off at the top. :)
Fair enough in that case. We don't have as many people into recording here as on other forums.
I'm with you, cyberbully, in liking the Line Out quality of these recorders, using them as a 96/24-capable DAP. I've been using my PCM-M10 this way for almost three years now - it's bullet proof - bug-free, everything is still working, 30-hour battery life. The headphone amp is nothing to get excited about, but the the Line Out is great.
I'm excited to hear about this new D100 - thanks for posting!
