NWZ-X1061 at Sony Style store for $350.

Just thought I'd mention that I walked into my local Sony Style store today to buy a NWZ-X1061, and it rang up at $349.99. "Works for me!"

I decided to finally go ahead and grab one, before...

Agreed 100%. I've got an A729, and I'd much prefer a 32-gig version of that over the touch-screen X1061. The sound might be better from the X, but I mainly use these things for background music at...

Well, first of all, apologies if I've come off harsh here. Still, I don't think Sony is at fault in the slightest here. More about that later.

Yep, and in the end, that's all I want to do. "Synching" is a pain, and not what I want to do. I just want to add files to the player, with the least amount of pain.

I just got back a couple of hours ago, so I'm "still downloading" stuff to it. Or, heck, let me check -- "I'm done." I'll play with it a bit tonight, then plug it into the dock at work tomorrow. ...

Yep, it appears to work just like the A series in terms of moving along to the next album -- I'm gold on that. And that's the MOST important thing for me, along with sound quality.

X Series display questions

Folks,

I've got an A729 -- previous-generation 16-gig player -- and I'm really quite happy with it. Wouldn't mind more capacity and bigger/better screen, so I'm interested in the X series...
