Holy f*&*ing bullshit vaporware.

Edit. As the song goes
You don't get something for nothing.
You don't get resolution from squares.
You can't have hi-res with lesser samples in your ears,
no matter what marketing says.

I still want one . . .

The very first thing I wrote a check for when I got an account when I was 13 was for a Sony Walkman at Montgomery Ward . . .

Your smartphone is as capable as that iPod wannabe.

I'm married with kids so car speakers is the only way I'm able hear music; that an the occasional YT video on my iPhone. Sad state of affairs music-wise but won't last forever. Also, I'm still a CD guy. If I like something enough to buy it I want something tangible to hold. I'd buy vinyl if I had more time to devote to equipment and such.

Mostly my listening is on-the-go.... I've got about 7500 songs on my iPhone 5S, and also got a gently used 30G iPod
Classic for Christmas last year.   Car stereo's CD player isn't bad, but could use an EQ upgrade, that's
for certain!

When I'm home and have time to listen.....I have an old kit-built Harmon Kardon tube amplifier (from the 1950s) that I use to play vinyl, DVDs, and (sometimes)CDs when I am home.  Turntable is a Technics SL-Q2 which used to be my dad's, but I've had it for over 30 years. I have a Pioneer DVD player for the DVDs and CDs.   Speakers are a Canadian brand called PSB, I've had those speakers since the mid-1990s.

Or... I'm playing the 320kbp mp3s through iTunes on my computer - a set of Bose hand-me-down computer speakers..usually i'm not a big Bose person, but I like these.
