Understand on the "each player has it's own purpose".

(I have a gut feeling Sony may bring out a bigger amped player in addition to the current range if all goes well in time for them)
Have to say I'm not finding it dry with all recordings, like you say after three weeks later with yours.... I will stay patient on that one and give it more time to see how it pans out as I must be lagging behind every one else that is a release day owner.
Correct. Maybe I've fallen for Sony's marketing but the reality is what they're offering now - the DAP for portability, and I'll have to buy the PHA-2 if I want to drive larger cans. But the all-in-one solution is merely a dream and that's where it ends.
Even if a maker comes up with a small UI-friendly long lasting DAP that can drive IEMs to HD800s and a massively large capacity storage with the necessary power to search & index, users will still find something to complain about - maybe it's shape, or price (no, I'm so not hinting about some other rampage thread going on).
If there's anything disappointing that's related to the ZX1, is that there's been so many people missing out 'cos they're busy complaining about it without even trying it. However as a semi-silent early adopter ZX1 user, I've been kinda naughty sniggering in the background at the complaints 'cos whilst they're furiously typing way about it, I've been thoroughly enjoying it.
