I actually have this receiver and it sounds awesome.  Sony first developed the S-Master for this 4.5k Top-of-the-Line technology in the early 2000's and then scaled it down for X walkman several years back.  The F886 should be the third iterations of the S-master portable module.

I still cannot exclude high aoutput-Z, but it should not be because of that Tegra 2.

 

Yup, I'm in agreement with this.  Love the sound of my S-master pro amplifier.

Though it may have the slower processor, I am willing to replace both my Cowon D3 and the iTouch 64gb.

 

Do you may know when the release of this will be. I am googling around and cannot find that particular info.

Does it matter what processor & ram it has since most of us will be using it play music files?

 

With all walkman DAP I have never bothered to go into such great detail to play 320kbps files.

 

 

Its a walkman!

It's 24/192khz and along with the convolver running it'll become dead slow.

Was originally thinking of getting the DX50 to replace my broken ITouch 3g and now I see news of this sexy little beast. Life sure is hard.

Not all of us are using it JUST for that, but I suppose I forget where I am.:rolleyes: A shame to be honest....

You can always use the extra Mhz and ram for EQ and other processing.

Just a wild guess: Dual core Snapdragon S4, 1 GB ram, just like a Xperia T.

Dual-core 1.5 and a gig of RAM and I'm happy.
Plus, Tegra 2 has almost no dev support.

I kind of want to post the "Shut up and take my money!!" meme from futurama. But decided against being a tool.

 

Kudos to this! Looks like I will be a very happy asian man this Christmas :>

And I thought I could settle for my F805. This looks sexy!

Plus Tegra 2 are slow as hell.

And it would be nice if it resembled Xperia hardware and have access to the already available sound mods, root and stuff from the Xperia family.

^THIS!
Rooting won't be hard to find now. The main problem is having a good recovery. The one on the current F and Z are just so limited.
If it's Tegra 2, I don't see anyone porting CWM onto the new F any time soon after the release.

Tegra 2? Seriously? Well... There goes my tech boner :l
