Why wait, if you don't need Android, then just get an iBasso DX50 instead.

I was wondering about fiio x5 but, frankly speaking, I am more confident with a brand as sony instead of ibasso or fiio.

They have more experience and they are a bigger company. Furthermore, if I have a problem with a sony product it is easy for me to find a customer assistance, unlike little chinese companies.

Last but not least, I search for a hi-fi sound but I appreciate the possibility to connect my player via bt or wi fi listening to the music in the car or by friends.

So please, sony, here is a potential customer that is just asking for more storage! :)

Fair enough.

I would go the route of importing a 64GB F887 from a seller on Amazon. Hopefully with more sellers doing that there, the Japanese model will be available fairly early on in the process. 

 

I would love to have external controls back again!  :(

It's the proprietary S-Master HX Dac/Amp combo.

Problem is with 24/192 files even 64GB isn't that much. 64GB is a minimum I would think for a high end DAP.

Yes, that's the only problem.  I own the F807, a current model, with 64GB and love it.  If it means anything, the F walkman data transfer rate is equivalent to the Class 10 SD card speed.

Found a video... not in English though.

It says 32/64GB, and that's the European flavor. 64GB unconfirmed release according to the video.

 

Makes me guess that there will be an F888 (128GB) on Japan.
