I am considering to get a DAP for sub-£200. Mainly playing FLAC\/ALAC plus some MP3\n\nI have variety of music in my collection, from classical to J-pop to Chinese pop and Anime OSTs. \n\nI read a lot of thumbs up posts for Plenue D. Given that this quite an old product, has Sony catch up in this game? \n\nI saw some posts comparing the A35 to Plenue D. Most ppl pick Plenue D over A35 in sound quality and EQ.\n\nbut I also posts compare A45 vs A35 saying that it has been improved in the latest series. \n\nWould like to see if Plenue D still have an advantage over Sony A series or not. \n\nCoz A45 is cheaper and comes with more recent techs. With Bluetooth AptX as well.
