Default Significantly Better than 729?

Hello,

I am thinking of buying a touch screen player. I have owned Meizu M6, Sony 729, Samsung Q1.

I want to know if the X series offer a significant improvement in sound over the 729. I do not care about wifi and all of that stuff. As I already enjoy the sound quality of both my Sony and Samsung, any new player I buy needs to offer a significant "improvement" on the sound for me to drop this type of money on it. If the sound is not much of an improvement, then maybe I will go with a Cowon just to know for myself how the different brands stack up against each other.

We've all heard the SQ of the X1000 series is even better than all the other Sony players before it. Here's the ABI>>> review: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...000-review.php

Read the article, enjoy the excellent videos - & welcome to ABI>>>.

Significantly Better than 729? No. I have the x1061 & a728. While the X sounds better and more true,flat (like the clip/fuse) I would have bought another A series or S series if either one was available in 32 gigs. I really dislike many things about the Sony touch/x (see my review), but the ONLY thing I dislike about my A is the small capacity.

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 work -- I can appreciate good sound and control over it, but it's not that big of a difference between the two players in that capacity.

Mainly, I preferred how I could keep the A729's screen "on" all the time, as I keep these AC-powered full-time through the dock. At the very least, the X could have the New Song Pop-Up, but it doesn't even have that. Secondly, I prefer the A's buttons to the X's touch screen -- give me buttons, any day. Finally, I didn't care much for paying for WiFi, web browsing, YouTube, and all that other X-rot that I'll never use.

In the end, the X1061 has 32 gigs and great sound, plus Sony's usual operational features -- that's what I want. I'd have bought it in the form of a 32-gig A series over the X series, any minute of any day.

I'd prefer a 32gb S63X series player. Now that, IMO, is the PERFECT Sony DAP!!!!
