"I try listening to music on WALKMAN Z immediately. Earphone in the ER-4P that I always use. 
The feeling that you simple comparison personally players in the surroundings. Xperia arc <<< 2G iPod touch << WALKMAN Z  I think WALKMAN Z and the iPod touch's level you do not know honestly it is too subtle. Enough to feel sound field and I wonder if wide WALKMAN Z slightly. I think that it can be satisfied definitely in the amateur level."

 

Thanks, but hopefully not the best review.

My favourite line from that page (google translated) is the author enthusing about the blue/green model:

 But the new model, has become a cool impression very top there is a sense of unity, Walkman logo part becomes the two-layer structure, body color so transparent front is covered with black panel all any color.  It "is getting better soooo! This is Hatsune Mikutension is raised!

You should know by now that blue/green colour makes the sound that much better.:wink_face:

Not a killer in the least but a bit of a disappointment.

 

If it turns out to be the player, I'll consider it myself. I don't like everything about anything.

 

Agree 100%. This could be THE player to have considering Sony's resources and their stated intents for the unit. But why oh why no expandable memory?

post #474 of 7455

128GB is plenty honestly but I too would love to see expandable memory. For me the main concern is the sound, if it sounds good I have no problem with 128 GB.

It's not so much the amount though with Hi Def more would be better but if you want something different on it, you can just swap a card, You have to dump and reload something. At high bit rates it's not that fast.

You guys are killing me here with this same question,  course it will sound good,  it has too at this price otherwise it would be suicide for sony.

I think he means if it's better than other contenders.

I am assuming they are using a high speed chipset for data transfer considering the bulky ass of that player, else for me having the ability to have 20-30 high res files on my player is good enough. (considering my entire high res library is no more than 50).

 

I had two 64 GB microsd on the Ak120 and I decided to take one out. Navigating was too hard for me and sometimes too much choice will spoil the moment. I rather have few of my favourite and listen to from start to end than have many that makes my mine wonder around. But that is a sort of a personal problem of mine and others are not the same.

 

This is also another reason why I liked my cheap ass DVD player + my DAC setup more (when I had it) as I used to listen to music more without interruption.

Not always, I mean look at AK100, not the best sound and no way cheap and it is still selling quiet stable.

The bump is for amp and larger (coupling?) capacitors. It's sure that it's standard USB 2.0 tops with a 1.xg processor. It's transfer rate should be pretty typical though I bet the memory itself is pretty fast so maybe a tick faster than some others.

Don't think it needs coupling capacitors... it's basically a Class D design, so the caps should be for the low-pass filter.
