    The Sony 40th Anniversary Walkman Thread

    I agree you don't want to take the A105 out for a long period of time and honestly the only time i think i will be using this for longer than a few hours is probably on an international plane ride. I really don't see a reason to stream Hi-Res from the internet, more like download to the device...
