So, I'm hopefully getting my NW-HD3 next week from Amazon, and have already dowloaded the SonicStage 2.3 software from www.connect.com
and sucessfully begun converting the first batch of the 1,200-odd CDs I own into ATRAC format (I may be some time). I've not previously owned a hard disk mp3 walkman of any kind, but found SonicStage easy to use, and quick to get to grips with - I'm scanning CDs in from scratch, rather than converting mp3s, so perhaps it's easier this way.
I've a couple of questions though:
- The RM-MC40ELK Remote control Mavis has in her photographs of the unit - is this the official remote to use with the NW-HD3? If so, when will it be avaiable in the UK, and any idea on a RRP? Plus, is it any good?
- What is this "gapless" playback people are referring to, that the iPod cannot do? I take it to mean you get a brief, audible gap between tracks when playing albums with the songs segued together (mix albums, etc.)? If so, will the ATRACplus albums that I'm creating currently play back on the NW-HD3 without any gaps on these kind of albums?
