Can't agree more. I get that audiophiles may not be tech nerds, but this is essentially taking advantage of that fact. Because many audiophiles aren't well versed in socs, companies like Sony, who clearly could put any snapdragon cpu they want at very little extra cost since they already buy 100k+ of socs, still put these super old rockchip cpus or whatever. It's up to that small subsegment of us who are into audio, and are also soc nerds, to advocate for the rest of the community who may not understand how they are being screwed over. Don't expect a lot of thanks, but once it's standard and devices aren't laggy, they will be happy about it. A music player that is laggy, when all it is doing is basic tasks that we have had strong enough processors for for the last 10+ years, is unacceptable.
