They will do it, but keep in mind if the item gets lost and it is insured you get back the reduced value to asked for.

Impressions about F886:

So I went away and pondered, did a lot of research and read lots of reviews about the Z series Walkman instead of this F800 series for my bass needs. Is the difference gonna be night and day between the two? Because I'm sacrificing this slick design (which I'm very fond of, dem software buttons yo), updated specs and Android 4.1 firmware. I guess what I'm asking is will this provide the minimum of no distortion (especially with bass) and will the bass be nice enough that if I feel I need some more, Poweramp would do the job? And will that be good enough for me to not notice much difference and not regret my decision bass-wise to the Walkman Z1000 series? Cheers.

Confirmed English language in the Japanese version!!!

 

In the Second 46

 


 

It was obvious, but it hurts to corroborate

Hi all!

 

                Just got my hand on some stuff from Japan today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      Think Sony has done a commendable job with this player. I have a bunch of DAP (ipod classic 120gb, Zune 80gb, nano7th gen), this one sound so much better from the very brief listening time I had with the NW-F887.

 

- The player itself is light and feels good to hold and the hardware buttons on the side of the device is very handy.

- It has a recording app (Japanese menu) which is limited to 320kbps,handy when you want to  record cassette tapes or MD's (recording cable WMC-NWR1 is needed). This cable is also used for the noise cancellation

  feature when using an external input.

- The bundled headphones are decent -  suited for the radio app and mp3 playback only.

- Transferred 24 bit 96/88.1/192khz flacs and they sound fantastic-  tried it with ue900 at a store and at half way volume slider  it got quite loud.

 On the look out for a travel friendly pair of headphone /IEM which will do justice to this player.

 

Cheers

As has been stated  before, there's no guarantee that the zx1 will be released in europe anyway.

I thought I read a post on the ZX1 thread, that it was going to be released in certain European countries in April, 2014 ?

Looks good so where did you buy it from? And how much did it cost you? Did you pay custom charges.

asked  a friend visiting Japan to pick up my NW-F887 from the store, paid 39,800 JPY, so thankfully no customs and postage . However multiple stores were checked as the 64 gb version was sold out and finally was able to get hold of a white one in a store called Onoden in Akihabara.

Have you heard the old F and the Z?
If yes, could you please compare this to the two?
Also, could you please upload a screenshot of the recovery and check for any other booting modes other than the normal one?
This would be much appreciated.

And how does it compare to the A-84x series?

I have not heard the old F and the Z, my last sony walkman was the mzr-50  (MD) which I still have and works  . I am not able to get the F-887 into recovery mode by the power and vol -/+ button combinations. Am I missing something?

Strange.

Are you familiar with ADB?
Or try using an app called ROM toolbox. It has an option to boot into recovery.
