Hey everyone, I was just having a flick through my saved head-fi photos and came across this Sony player, I was just curious on what model it is? Thanks in advance.

Most probably something from the Sony NW-A840 range which is an asian model (see asian characters at bottom of screen) and comes with capacity up to 64Gb.
 
They were supposed to release something similar in the Western market but it doesn't seem to have happened. We only got the Sony NWZ-A845 with 16Gb.

Thanks for the replies guys. It seems you're right about it being an asian model TCD (no pun intended), I just thought it was a nice looking player. If I was to order one from Japan would English be optional as a language?

Well found ... about time they started appearing in the UK.
 
£299 is way too much but it's only a matter of time before the price starts to drop. They'll be under £200 within 6 months.

Yep, that looks just like the A847 I got, so it's probably that.
299 GBP doesn't seem all that expensive though, I recall I paid around €300-350 for the Japanese version, and this one has VAT included.
 
But since Sony is/has released an updated version, you might want to get that instead.

Well, compared to the cost of a Ferrari a Lamborghini is a pretty good deal.... I guess it's all a matter of perspective.
