This 64 Gigabyte Japanese Sony Walkman is worth every penny. Unlike the European version of this player, the volume level is not capped due to EU regulations, and is capable of extraordinary sound reproduction. Sony's S Digital Amplifier is at the heart of this device, and as long as music is encoded to at least 320kbps, the sounds this device produces allows you to immerse yourself in pure aural heaven. The noise-cancelling feature works really well, and the earphones are of excellent quality.
When I purchased this, I was using the Sony Walkman X Series 32GB player, and the menus are all very familiar. If you have used the interface before, it would probably not be too hard to navigate though it may be hard for beginner's. The manual for the UK version of this device is available online, which may prove to be helpful.
I love the karaoke feature because, as a musician, I love to listen to the backing tracks with the vocals muted, and obviously, this could make for a great Karaoke device for parties.
Also, watching videos on this device is a real treat. The little OLED screen really comes into its own, displaying videos and images, with excellent colour reproduction. In the past, I used to watch movies on my mobile phones, which caused severe battery drainage, so I always carry a Media player separately. Typically, dedicated media players have a much longer battery life.
The DSP effects probably won't be to everyone's taste but I love the way you can tweak the sound of this player, and it really does allow you to highlight sounds which can sometimes be buried in the mix.
With cables sold separately, you can also connect a Sony MZ-RH1 Mini Disc Recorder, and record music or other sounds from it. Also, in Japan, a TV out cable is also available.
Before I end, I would like to say that what makes this player so user friendly is the way you can just drop files into the music folder. All you need to do is plug it in to your computer with a USB cable and the device shows up as a storage device, and you can add your media into the music or video folders. Couldn't be easier, and there is no need to use any kind of music management software. I love this player, and hope Sony make one with three times the memory because these players sound exquisite, and this being my second Sony music player, I could say that in terms of sound quality, you can't go wrong wit these. Yes, you can play games on an iPod Touch or various mobile phones, but if you are a serious gamer, you would know that proper gaming is all about hardware controls. Yes, you could have a touchscreen in addition the hardware buttons but its ridiculous to think that serious gamers would just like tilting their device to see cars move etc. A lot of the additional features on iPods are stupid gimmicks and the sound quality is atrocious. I do own a 5th gen iPod classic, and also bought a 6th gen one for the 120gb storage capacity but soon realised that the sound was poor.
IF you really love music, your ears would thank you for this.
