Walkman NWZ F886 officialy announced!! [192khz/24bits] - Page 17

post #241 of 1318
With 1st class delivery it comes to £210. I do hope they honour the price, think they will. No idea on when it's due in, but happy to wait a month or two at that price.

It's £50 cheaper than the sony store price incidentally!

We will.  Usually another month or so behind Japan & Europe.  Sony just think less of us here in the States.

Do let us know.  Hope your new Walkman doesn't suffer from the European Volume Restriction.  If so, it may affect the sound of the player as well.

This product seems solved my question here.

impressive Digital amp and output

tons of Sony's own technology 

everything on this is way better than iBasso DX50

Im definately going to buy this.

Will do, and I am tired of using a portable amp when travelling, so hope this does the job well, not that my touch is bad, just want something a bit better.

 

I am quite surprised sony have a different attitude towards the states with it consumer electronics compared to its playstation brand.

I hope they haven't capped the volume significantly, if at all. Then again it only needs to drive my Amperiors and UM Customs. May look at some Momentums soon.

Sony lost the portable music player wars here years ago with no hope of recovering. Makes sense from a business standpoint. They offer limited models here (if they decide to release them), and that's that.

They may take a bigger chunk of the pie given that Apple has no interest in making audiophile friendly iPod.  I really hope they see success though.

That sure looks great!

post #253 of 1318

I'm looking at the 64 GB model but it seems like it won't be released in Europe?

 

I would also like to know:

 

- how do Sony players compare to Cowon's in terms of SQ? (I currently own a 32 GB J3 with a 32 GB class-10 microSD card)

- does Sony offer full UMS for transferring files from a PC? (or MTP at least)

- what's the expected battery life for the F887?

 

I really wish I could get the higher-end ZX1 but its price is killing me :(

 

Thanks guys!

I have yet to hear a strait answer to this. Very curious.

The article says that both the players have a gig of RAM, and I confirmed that from a few more sources off the internet.
So that's a pretty good move on behalf of Sony. No more choppy movement (hopefully).
