Very very nice walkman. It looks gorgous, sounds gorgous and is very well specced and has monster battery life. What more could anyone want! These walkmans aint that cheap, but Sony is just in another league with its Groove sound system and earphones. TAKE NOTE... even if you don't go for a Sony , you just have to buy some Groove earphones, at £20 they're twice the price of your average set, but believe me they're 5 times better, which can only render them a good value investment! The bass response is so far untouchable so far by the likes of AIWA. The problem with most setups is that they're let down by tinny, uncomfortable earphones, but all change here. The walkman itself has AMS so you can skip out tracks, it skips out blank sections of tape, sounds incredable, lasts forever on a battery. There really isn't anything negative to say about it cos it also feels very well built, is significantly better than the competition, and should last a long time. A good 'un!
