    NWZ-A720/820 Series

    Sony support are useless. The NWZ series are USB mass storage device, thus will work with any OS (Mac, Linux, Windows, etc). You transfer the music via drag-n-drop. The device will show just like an external USB drive. However, you cannot sync with iTunes, unless you install 3rd party apple scripts/plugins That allow iTunes to "sync" with mass storage devices. iTunes will only sync with iPods natively. You can still use iTunes as your jukebox, and to transfer the music, just drag-n-drop the tracks you want to the device in Finder.
  2. Agreed. At EX85/EX90 prices, you can get Shure/Ultimate ears with much better sound quality.

Hopefully the EX stock bud, replaceable covers, multiple colors, and dynamic normalizer feature remain in the NWD version. Oh, NWD? I thought Sony is sticking with NWZ. Urrgh. As if consumers are not confused enough. Prices are $69 for 1GB, and $79 for 2GB. Hmm, dunno, 1GB should be more like $50 nowadays.

    I have a distrust of people that claiming an unadvertised feature without providing proof. If I claim my PS3 can play Xbox games, would you want proof? Same thing.
  5. Sony already supports MP3, WMA, and AAC. What else do you need? Want FLAC? Get Cowon.

    WTF? Are you smokin something? All I did was ask a question. 1. Connect your Sony to a speaker. 2. Play 2 tracks that you know are gapless. 3. Start recording with a digicam or cellphone showing the timebar and sound being gapless. Any recent digicam/cellphone can record video AND audio just fine. 4. Upload to youtube How hard is that? I did it many times already. [sarcasm]I am the president of Sony, and since I'm sitting inside Sony's head office, I don't have to prove anything.[/sarcasm]

    Mp3 vs. ATRAC3

    Holly thread resurrection Batman!

    Could you record a video of the device playing the tracks gaplessly and post it to youtube?
  9. Err, his library is in WAV already. So the simplest thing he could do is simply encode the WAV files into MP3 or something. No need to re-rip from scratch.
  10. Why would you want to do that? The E507 supports MP3 just fine, so simply transfer the MP3 as is and spend your time listening to the podcasts instead of wasting time transcoding them to Atrac. You can always set Sonicstage to automatically transcode everything to Atrac during transfer.
  11. I guess the first question is why do you buy the Japanese version in the first place, knowing that Atrac and Sonicstage is no longer supported outside Japan? Try running the installer under Applocale set to Japanese.
  12. No, you just hate WMP. My favorite app is MP3tag, although I'm not sure if it could do exactly what you want (ie. automatically retrieving WMP's album art). The album art from WMP should be stored in the same folder as the MP3 as a hidden/system file called folder.jpg/albumart.jpg. You might have to paste them manually using a separate ID3 tag editor. MP3tag can do batch tagging pretty well.
  13. You know, thanks for pointing that out. I was wondering how come the demo unit at Bestbuy have the Rhapsody icon, and the units sold there has Bestbuy stickers inside the box. IMO this simply stupid of Sony USA. They probably got some kickback form Bestbuy/Rhapsody, but it confuses consumers and creates more confusing SKUs. Even worse if they drop any features, no matter how insignificant, from the firmware. I guess Sony USA has a hard time kicking the habit of neutering firmwares of their products in the US. How hard is it to simply release 1 firmware for units of the same model?
  14. Err, I don't think that's the same. What I meant by shuffle by album is for the unit to shuffle the albums during playback, but the unit played each album's tracks in order.
  15. Figures. I don't understand why Sony ditched that feature. Not impressed at all, other than the larger screen. The control pad seems not that easy to use quickly on the go/blindly compared to the A80x.
