Sony has released another MP3 player and they are taking it back to the eighties, as they are simply calling it the WALKMAN. But, apparently this time it’s in ALL CAPS. Two versions of the player will be a 20GB and a 6GB that features OLED display touting ease of use and a nice user interface. In addition, they are introducing two additional shuffle modes, “My Favorite Shuffle” and “Time Machine Shuffle”. The first of which will shuffle the 100 most played songs and the second will shuffle tracks in the selected year of music.
If I am stuck using their SonicStage to transfer music just like the Sony NW-HD5 then I will have to give it the thumbs down. If Sony would make transferring music on and off of their players less restricted, they would have some really good digital audio players, especially since the NW-HD5 has audiophile quality sound.
