    Mine came in from AccessoryJack last week, but I haven't had a chance to use it until today.

    I'll need a while longer before I get to grips with the sound quality, but a few initial observations:

    1. The unit is much bigger than I thought it would be, having been away from Sony DAPs for a few generations. It is much wider and thicker than my A15, ut it feels much better built, and has a nice weight about it.

    2. Content Transfer on the Mac is painfully slow. I dragged 35 tracks from iTunes this morning and 25 minutes later they has still not transferred. Has anyone else noticed that? It shouldn't be a massive problem for me as I have a 200GB card that will carry most of my music, but I do tend to fall into the habit of wanting to transfer something just before I leave the house in the morning!

    3. Album art seems to work fine on the tracks I have transferred from iTunes so far. I haven't really followed the album art conversation above, but cna I expect this to change if I DON'T use Content Transfer?

    Content Transfer?

    It's an old app I don't use it with 2010.

    CONFUSE between this and fiio X3ii, plz suggest one, I like warmer sound without being too flat...

    I compared the A45 and My Zx1 - I'm sorry but I would prefer the zx1 because it has more clear and detailed sound. scare2.gif

    What about the bass of the two daps?
  8. iLFuma
    I tried the Fiio x3ii and I have to say without EQ it sounds really flat and the build quality is better (all metal)
    The Sony without Eq has slightly V shape sound and is warmer.
    You can always pump the bass up as you want with the EQ :smirk:

    A30 and A40 models more volume but no drive.

    No drive?? You mean bass?
  11. Gosod
    no, I mean power and bass, I called it a short (drive).

    I feel a little disappointed because A40 still has no Extra Bass :frowning2:(
    I think I'm gonna change the earphone with Extra Bass, too bad for Sony :frowning2:

    It means sony daps are weak in producing heavy quality bass?
  14. Gosod
    I talked about this, EQ does not help?
