Default does the x series play WAV files ???

I have looked all over the internet with varying answers both yes and no.

Can someone with an x series just load up a wavfile for me and see what happens please?

Format(s) Supported : MP3/ WMA/ AAC/ L-PCM

L-PCM = wav? idk.

Use mp3 and save some memory. Using .wav is ridiculous.

Someone doesn't know what they are talking about. Sonys play .wav files. Look at the Sonystyle.uk site. Linear PCM is .wav.

supports also L-PCM lossless Wave, yes... But I don't hear any difference between it and mp3 320kbps to be honest, lossless is anyway basicly only for music storing IMO.

Default difference between mp3 and .wav . . .

well I can hear the difference and, to me thats all that matters.

So .wav files are key when choosing a new device.

Cheers guys.

I can hear the difference when using great IEM, but not the stock ones.

Anyone know how to separate albums on Walkman when using WAV files? I'm on a Mac so I can't use any of the Sony apps that came with the Walkman. Drag and drop is all I have.

i can hear the diff also

but i only have 5 albums loaded.

i just drag and drop also. best way is to put the wavs in a named folder. then you can search with the folder option for that album. as FOR ME, all the wavs are called "track1" an so on
