Wondered if Sony was planning on putting a version 2 of the
D-CJ01. I really liked it, but two missing features made me return
it (not firmware upgradable, no ffwd through mp3).

Or if there is another promising player coming out soon, would
like to hear about it


Thank you

Cool. It'll come with the Senn MX300. That's a step up from the normal stock buds

wow. i'll try to look for it here and see if it has an optical out. i'll try if they'll let me audition it and compare it with my older slim-x, wish i have a sony one as well so i can do a better comparison coz i heard from somebody that the sony has better sound than the slim-x (true?). i'll also find out the price for you guys. mmmm...a good 12mW £« 12mW @ 16§Ù. i wonder what are the feature developments (sorry can't understand korean...and the online translator didn't help much either). purk, it mentioned mx300 instead of 400. not that both buds matter in sound difference.

made a call to iriver and learned that it won't be released till next month. no price available as of this time. millerdog, the remote looks definitely better. now i'm gonna check if they made this unit more thinner than the previous one which was already the thinnest mp3cd player available.

It will as thin as the SlimX, 16.7 mm... Stated on iriver.com forum.

One thing I don't understand: Why is everyone saying like "omg i want one, when is it coming out?"
As far as I can tell, this is nothing more than a SlimX, with a new design (can't say if it's an improvement though), and slightly better audio quality - for these relatively small improvements, you would probably have to pay 50 bucks more, than the original 150$ slimx!

Have I missed something? I am buying my first mp3 player in the near future, would you advise me to go for the SlimX now, or wait for the SlimX2, or possibly a third upcoming player?

if you're a person who will go for better sound, i think the sony d-cj01 is for you. i heard from someone here who owned that unit and the slim-x that the slim-x has a slight hiss. if you're a rock or pop music listener, the hiss will not be too audible but that's a different matter if you like classical music or other quieter genres listener.
but some said that the differences are inaudible. i think i heard somebody said that the cj01 can be almost identical with the d777 sound quality. that's something. and this unit has longer battery life. uses aa recharbles which makes the unit more thicker.
but if you'll go for features, the slim-x may be better for you. the remote can help you navigate easier if you have an mp3 cd of say, 200 songs. and this unit is filmware upgradable so you have a better edge of compatibility in the future. this unit is also slim since it uses gumsticks. but i find my slim-x quite unsturdy. doesn't have that solid feel and some users commented on ending up with a lemon after they accidentally dropped their unit. hope this will not be the cases of the next model.
if you can wait a while, hang on for a few months for the newer sony version which may be december or january (not sure on this update but it's customary for sony to release new stuff during these months, sometimes earlier).
cheers,
Tina
