Default Discontinued At Bestbuy?

Just went browsing through the American Bestbuy site and it looks like they have discontinued the X Series Walkman? Can anyone confirm if Bestbuy stores are still carrying this product?

Wouldn't surprise me a bit. It was overpriced compared to any other device that came close in capabilities.

Ahh shoot...was planning to buy this in a couple months down in the states but since Bestbuy doesn't carry them...

Anybody know any American stores that carry the x series other than the Sony store?

Default X Series in UK

Last Friday I bought a 32Gb X-Series (got fed up with waiting for the mythical A Series), after a lot of searching the Sony Centre in Falkirk had one. The chap there told me Sony were discontinuing the X.

The X is better. I've used them back to back. For a little more money, you get much better build quality with the X. The A845 (which I have) is flimsy and hisses a little more. They both sound good, but dear God, anything hissing more than the X and made less well is not worth the asking price.
