    I dont particularly cabe about the DAP, we have reached a point where we have so many great sounding DAP and truly we cant reach the next level will we can find something beyond the current technology however what I am interested are the headphone and the DAC/AMP.

    It would be nice to see a standard take and be supported well. As an aside, if Sony finally put some power behind this DAP, bravo, that was a wise decision. It will vindicate the position I and others have taken that any DAP needs to be more capable than an IEM specialist. I know all you ZX2 fans loved to say it had enough power, but it really didn't, it was quite underpowered for that price. Hopefully Sony did indeed beef this baby up. Maybe I will be able to finally have a high-end Sony DAP (as long as it isn't 3K).

    Another fiddly connector I can melt with lead free solder, hurrah!

    Agreed, and the DAC/amp+headphones will out you around $6,000. Cheap!

    It's nice to see that the "mere mortal" version will support both output jacks. And I like the design of the chassis. It sort of seems like a combination of the ZX1 and ZX2. It's black, like the ZX2, but appears to have a mostly "brushed" finish like the ZX1. And the buttons are not recessed as they are in the ZX2. I actually found that to be something of a detriment. For me, it was easier to feel which buttons were which when they were raised, like on the ZX1. In this case, it looks like the buttons are mostly flush, but the volume and play buttons have a "moat" around them. I imagine that'll make for a nice distinct difference that can be easily felt.
    The SD card door looked a LOT bigger than on the ZX2. So my hopes were up for a dual SD card slot. Looks like it's only one. Well, that's not a huge deal.
    Still WM-port, huh? Well...I guess if I get one, I can continue to use my Fiio L5 and L50 cables for analog output. I wonder if they'll increase the output volume...?
    Not really sure what the "Goldie" version could have over the "Mortal" version. Probably more internal storage and more power output.

    Considering the thickness of this music player i want SD card and nothing else.
    Also it may pack a bigger battery then before.They must know by now the real audiophile is not bothered by size, weight as long at it delivers wonderful sound and long battery life.

    I think the black one is affordable.......lol, I can't believe I almost kept a straight face while typing that
    But seriously, the Gold is the uber $$$ model I believe.
