I don't think Sony will use 'Dual balanced 3 FT cable' because both UDA-1 and HAP-S1 are not balanced.

Unless they are going to announce new balanced desktop amplifier.

Wait, what? Very similar to the 7520.

Unless they mean dual entry? Not sure =S I thought a balanced termination was weird too.

With the same look as R10.

I can't afford 010 but SA5000. Now the story is I can't afford R10 but this one. LOL

Yeah I hold the same opinion. SA5000 is dual entry while SA3000 is single

Golden words: nature of sound, the sense of space, sound particles(?),  concert hall, flow of sound.

Seems Sony is focus on nature and space.

Interesting! Loved my SA5000 and liked the R10. Just hope it doesn't sound like a Q010, a versatile flagship is welcomed.

I'm so ready. I hope this means a more spacious, neutral sound.

Hope that they can recurrence concert hall in a closed can like R10.

My wallet is ready for this too LOL

I've tried most of the current production TOTL and nothing stood out from the rest. Obviously some fell short to my ears but definitely interested in seeing what Sony can produce here considering they're the ones who brought me into this hobby.

That sound description is a big relief to me. I was really worried they would say it was going to be extended bass headphones. Hope the price is good, I might get it just out of brand loyalty from all the years of enjoyment I got out of my sa5000.

Actually I don't think this one can be a killer, but no doubt it will be a lovely one. Price indicates that it can't be a Summit-Fi headphone or a product on top of hill($). Sony's financial situation is very bad recently. They are still searching for products that can make money. Sadly they don't have the guts to revive Qualia or copy the success from Astell&Kern.
