Of course not!

All sony needed to do is make a sensibly priced music player with a microSD slot.
What the fuck are they thinking?
Who buys a $600 unitasker these days?

Of fucking course it is holy shit.
All you need is a cheap player that has a huge capacity or at least removable storage.
If it has a shitty sound just buy a cheapass 20 dollar DAC for it and presto you just saved yourself 550 buckaroos

Audiophiles would buy a 6000 dollar product if there were one.

I work in HiFi store and spend all day every day setting people up with ABX tests for all sorts of gear.

There are very few people whose hearing is good enough and whose stash of music is of high enough quality (production quality, not file type/bitrate) to warrant something like this.

If you test it out and hear a difference against a lesser product, great. Just try to remember that your brain will make the one you want (for any other reason) sound better cos brains are good like that.

I own a Sandisk Clip Jam stashed with 32GB of 320KB MP3s. And I only own it because my phone has no microSD slot and pretty dirty power and hum. Couldn't be happier for a mobile solution.

Before spending that money, please go and find a tool online where you can test yourself with 320KB MP3 vs FLAC. If you can't score higher than 75% accuracy or so then consider saving your money and buying a cheap player plus literally hundreds of dollars worth of other stuff.

Or give to charity, even if you did work hard for the money.

You could have a smartphone that plays music just fine for 10 hours for ~$100 (+ SD card). And it does everything else a smartphone does, too!

Or you can have a dedicated player if you must have it for some reason for $40.

>>51607274
Yes, it doesn't even cost $100 to buy an iPod Classic or Mini and drop in an mSATA SSD or CF card
