    Wow that sucks, and I thought I lived in the sticks ha ha. I’m really surprised Amazon Canada doesn’t have SR15 - then you could buy both and easily send the one you don’t like back.

    And the Sony is nice, but damn it’s a brick. But that doesn’t bother most people :wink:

    And actually they’re not full fledged Sony stores but they have Sony displays in our local Best Buy that have zx300, Wm 1A and nw 45.

    thats rare, our best buy doesnt carry many sony audio gear. if they do, its just the wireless noise canceling headphones or tv.

    i can pass by later this week downtown to check but i doubt it.

    as for the SR15 we have a local dealer that does carry A&K products but they're on a distributor waiting list by A&K and may take time before they get stock, id rather just get it sooner than later if ive decided to get the SR15.

    The SP1000M should quick charge in 1.5 - 2 hours. If it is taking longer, it could be a possible issue with the quick charger you are using, the cable or the player itself.

    US and Canadian customers would be serviced out of our US offices. Germany is the authorized repair center for the EU.

    Ok 8 hours now with 12% battery left- will use stopwatch function for rest of time.

    At 1%

    And just shy of 1 hour 2 minutes on the stopwatch for a grand total of 9hours and 2 minutes with a headphone load and volume at 91 and mixed files- more flac than anything. Not too bad.

    Damn I wish I had a Best Buy like yours, the one where I'm at only has an A45 that's enclosed in a case, and you can't even plug in your own pair of cans.

    Maybe mine is special? Ha ha what’s weird is it’s just a display area stuck in a corner, and the area is kind of rural.

    It's usually the Best Buys with the Magnolia Home Theater section or the standalone Magnolia stores.

    Funny thing is, the Best Buy that I have in fact has a Magnolia section, I must be unlucky then

    I have that as well at home, if the cable is not 3.1 quickcharge enabled it wont quickcharge. the device detects the current draw from the device you're charging and feeds it the appropriate current in order to not damage the battery and keep a stable charge.

    I have just quickly ran through sr 15, futura, 1000 copper and 1000 ss.

    So, sr 15 is actually the loudest.

    Sr 15 at 80
    Futura 90
    1000 c 90
    1000 ss 90

    Futura sounds the cleanest and best screen but worst grip. Slippery and sharp.

    Copper is the warmest.

    Sr 15 has harsh details and the most portable.

    Stainless steel is detail with lots of control.
