Yes, actual buttons! Very welcomed.

I made a preorder on the UK Sony site, and it says "Expected delivery time: September 26-27th"

So we should see it on stores just by the end of the month.

Can barely wait. Although I would like to import it, I don't want the volume cap.

It should be possible to fix this problem with android, right? Is it a software or a hardware cap?

There hasn't been a fix for the current models, so I won't hold my hopes too high.

I have an euro Z, and I'm ok with the volume it provides, but most people that have auditioned both capped and uncapped say that uncapped model sounds better. And I feel I'm missing something.

I do wish it supported DSD.....

But who cares. Yippy!!!!!

Huh, I wonder what it's going to cost in the US...

 

 

It seems like there's a wave of consumer-priced hi-res DAPs this year, X3, DX50, and now a sony walkman with a 24/192 dac!

 

At least we know sony's UI will be spot on.

Around $330-350 I think.

Yes!!   Super excited!!  Any news when it will be available in the U.S.  I rather not buy the Euro model due to volume/amp restriction.

It's weird because they haven't evwn anounced the japanese release. And seeing how the US is getting very late Sony phones releases...

If 32GB is max. for US you could be right. Seeing previous Sony prices they usually bump it higher than the ipod with same capacity.

Is their any Noise Cancelling function for this? The X has it and it does a splendid job.

 

I'm not into this NFC technology, pretty useless for something so small when mostly used with an IEM/Headphone. Instead of that they could have added NC or sd card.

 

Looks like Android is back on this. I havent ever used Android apps or google on the Z, but only to update the player.

Papers say 98% noise cancel with different profiles (train, bus, indoors).

Yeah I joined in the game late with my MZ-G750, and I was so happy that the Mazda RX-8 has the minidisc as an option here in the US.  Got the unit and and installed it myself and couldn't be happier.

hmmm...it does seem strange to market this as a player designed for high-res files and only have non-expandable 32gb...
