Walkman NWZ F886 officialy announced!! [192khz/24bits] - Page 15

post #211 of 1468

Decent review but not much new.  However, that new LOD with the PHA-2 is unexpected.

Any English version for this review (I have not tried Google translate yet , it usually yields to poor results with asian text) ? Thanks.

Not that I know of, but the review seems a bit generic to me (better than the F807 and ba ba...) with my limited understand of Japanese.  However, that little bit about the PHA-2 with the F887 is very interesting, specially with the new mini-USB plus 3.5mm LOD for the WM-PORT.  Can't wait to find out more.

Can someone pleas enlighten me as to why gapless audio is STILL secondary, especially here of all places? I remember reading way back when how programming in the ability was quite difficult (yet still lesser players could do it at the time, mind you this was somewhere pre-ipod touch)

 

This thing better do gapless for ~$1000 with more than just ATRAC. By the way does anyone know if the jap players support ATRAC Lossless or is it just 3 /+?

Just realized that the F88x series will get a bigger screen.  Not much but going from 3.5" to 4" will be well received by me.

I already preordered mine since the beginning of the month... sadly it says that it will arrive around november 12 :(. Until now I have been using a Walkman NWZ S545, it was great but I finally managed to fill up the 16 GB(actually around 14) with some 9 pounds creative headphones. Hell, I even have my new headphones just waiting for it, the XBA 30 ones, although I also heard that the XBA H3 will be released, will it be much of a difference XBA30 vs the XBA H3?

It's a hybrid. I think it'll be pretty much better.

The specs really say so... but I kept wondering, how exactly is better? More bass? more soundstage? what disadvantages has going just balanced armature compared to hybrid?

A hybrid has both armature and a dynamic driver. The dynamic is for deeper bass.
Let's please avoid the off-topic.
