As you all can see, my buddy Marv has been paying attention. Besides lestatar, you'll have a quite RockBox'able DAP as of Monday.

And Curiouss, it was for sale in the classifieds section - I'd have sold & shipped it to you w/no probs. I even included a leather case.

The X has moved on to a much hotter owner in Fla. (female, and living the surfer lifestyle), and the owner is loving it!!!

Now, I still want a 64gb Sony,.............I'll sell my iPod touch when it hits the US of A.

Hold out for the new A Series, as the SQ is the same as the X, but the useless features are (somewhat) removed. I had the X, sold it. It's a great sounding device, and the tactile controls make it work - but the full tactile Sony DAP's RULE!!! I'll sell my touch 64gb once it's in the states,.......

The A845 has been shortlisted for both Commuter Gadget of the year and Music Player of the year by T3's Gadget Awards. Do vote here,if you think it deserves it.

Truth be told, my son needed the money and was going to sell it to someone - so he gave it to me when I gave him the dough ($$$). I ended up w/a touch that way.

Still, even w/somewhat decent SQ, it's an OK device. My Sony definitely sounds better, same w/the D2 and especially now RB'd Fuze. All in all, I wish it had better volume and just treble & bass adjustments - that would solve the SQ issue IMO.

No dust under my screen so far, but from day one I had already feared this problem because of the A840's frameless glass design. Unless the adhesive used between the glass and the body is completely sealing, dust might be inevitable.

Well ebay has the 64gb for 450 or so, but that is too much. Is there like a retailer from Japan that ships to the US because the most I'd pay for it a 64gb model is at most 350usd.

Retail price for the A847 in Switzerland is a hefty CHF 465 (roughly €330/£280/$440)

yup, with NC and OLED screen, the A series was never a cheap player to begin with.

16GB in Singapore is S$379.00
32GB in Singapore is S$469.00
16GB more for $90.00
ergo, 64GB would cost S$649.00
(465CHF = 600SGD approx)You guys do have it better already...Not as bad as the X series, though.
16GB = S$529
32GB = S$699

Are they serious?! S$170 extra for a measly 16GB?!

I think the biggest culprit has to be the earphones. Every Sony player with EX earphones since the A800 has commanded a hefty premium over the competition, and you're right the NC doesn't help...

I sold the touch, and I'm getting a Cowon J3 - it's got enough power to drive all my HP's with authority. Sorry Sony, you too slow you blow!!!
