Well due to a couple of requests I've decided to order a Sony Walkman NWZ-A840-series DAP not long ago. Yes with my own money (just so you know I've never had freebies from Sony before - not that I would complain!). The A845 16GB version is due to arrive late this week/early next week because I can't be arsed to pay Amazon UK the 'upgrade' postage fee.
I am getting a bit excited about it right now. Not to say I'll be keeping it (16GB isn't enough), but I am curious to hear if it would match or even better the formidable X-Series. Both has the same(?) S-master amp powering it, so on paper it should match the X-Series although some reviews are already indicating that it doesn't... I'll give it the usual 1-2 weeks of intense listening before writing the review and would definitely post thoughts via twitter or this blog, depending on the circumstances. Should I also do an unboxing...?
Still I can't help writing that I am very disappointed in Sony Europe for sticking their middle fingers at us, first, for only making this series available 6-7 months after it was announced, and second, for not making the 64GB A847, or even the 32GB A846, available here!
