Default Resume feature on the Sony A810 series?

If you turn the player off, when you turn it back on, will it resume playing at the place in the file it was when turned off? The specs say it supports mp3 files down to 32 kbps. Has anyone here tried playing a 16 kbps mp3 file on the A816 or A818? Did it play okay?

The Sony A81X & S61X series both resume on the last song played. As for 16kbps files - sorry, thats 1 I haven't tried as I use the highest bitrate VBR's I can create or acquire.

yup, resumes right where you left off, but why would you want to listen to a 16kbps mp3??? Might as well listen to a song being played through a string and tin cup

The 16kbps files are lectures, and not music. They sound quite good when the original recordings were good. I am amused when I see people using 128 kbps or a higher bitrate for recordings of speeches. I could understand using 32 kbps though, as there are many mp3 players that might not provide proper support for files under 32 kbps. Lectures at 24 kbps or 32 kbps do sound a bit better than 16 kbps, however 16 kbps files sound quite good when the original recordings are high quality. This web page recommends using 24 kbps for spoken word files.
