Slim ATRAC/MP3 CD WALKMAN with full accessories....
The new ATRAC CD WALKMAN combines all the benefits of a Sony CD WALKMAN with playback of ATRAC and MP3 compressed music while ATRAC compression technology keeps offering the benefit to pack 30 CD's worth of music onto 1 CD-R/RW, significant improvements in compression bitrates have allowed the user to compress music with a sound quality level very near to original CD. On top of that, the new PC music jukebox functionality allows users to easily rip their CD's, buy and download music from the Internet, create their own playlists and burn directly to CD-R.
Major leaps forward have been made in ATRAC technology, the compressed audio format which Sony originally developed for MiniDisc ten years ago and which lies at the heart of Sony's Network Audio devices. The ATRAC3plus format has extended its bitrate compression rates from 48- and 64- to also 256kbps, delivering playback quality that is very close to original CD. All ATRAC CD WALKMAN models feature a parametric equalizer to allow users to fine-tune the tone of their sound.
The DNE-700S also comes with SonicStage 2.0 software. This latest version includes a PC music jukebox, an essential function for any true network audio device as it allows users to manage their music on their PC and directly burn their favourite playlists and compilations.
Sony products are the essence of simple connectivity. They are designed to connect quickly to each other and to the world beyond so that every owner, from the novice to the enthusiast, can easily enjoy the benefits of digital networking. The ATRAC CD WALKMAN, with its new SonicStage software and easy playback of CD-R and downloaded MP3 or ATRAC3plus files, brings users even closer to the total Network Audio solution. Such simple connectivity creates a bridge between the worlds of AV and IT and gives users complete control over their digital environment.
The true circle designed D-NE700 comes with LCD remote and rechargeable battery.

Firstly the battery life is amazing. You really will get a superb number of hours out of the player - although I am not convinced it goes that long with the supplied rechargable battteries, the figure is probably with alkaline batteries which you don't need to use. Even so the battery life is a major positive and gives the D-NE700S a massive advantage over other players.
Secondly the remote control is simple to use and isn't an eyesore like some others I have seen - it is slim yet strong. However, without a good knowledge of the layout of the controller it would be very difficult for those with poor eyesight to really see the controls. The buttons do not stand out from the main body of the remote meaning they can occasionally be difficult to find, although I still rate it as very easy to operate after the controls have been learnt. Additionally the beauty of the controller is that you can really access everything to do with the player from it, meaning you can safely store the main player in a bag/pocket and operate all menus using the remote. Again this takes some practice and is not really useful for those who aren't interested or competent with the technology.
I personally don't like the sonicstage software - although simple in interface it does seem to slow you down in comparison to other burning software, and conversion to ATRAC formats does take some time (almost a minute per song - at least 2 hours for a full disc). ATRAC is a plus but often I find it easy just to quickly burn an mp3 cd - and add a folder for a new artist in windows xp using drag and drop when I get new music using a cdrw.Read more ›
If you'd have asked me yesterday, however, I would have given you a different opinion - the reason being that the SonicStage software was giving me severe grief. I seem to have overcome the majority of my issues, and when you work out how it does what it does, then you will probably find that it is quite a decent piece of software. However, my advice would be as follows: wherever possible, in order to create your ATRAC, ATRAC3 or ATRAC3plus format music, do so directly from your original CD. There is a file conversion aspect to the software (so your legal downloads can easily be converted - though this did kick up a few issues with permissions and rights), which does the job but if I were you only convert a small number of files at a time, and keep an eye on it, as my computer was tending to crash with a large workload.
Direct from CD - no problems. And you'll then have your music in a format which will play on the new Sony 20GB HD-walkman - maybe Christmas!!!!
The player itself is a good looking item, with lots of functionality. In ATRAC playback you can have seamless transition from track to track. Great in-line remote. Could do with display backlight though. Many other features are at your disposal. Howeverm what impressed me most was the battery life. It seemed like one charge lasted for a good couple of weeks of daily trips to the gym, in the car for work, etc. Ipod = 8 hours, NE700 = I lost count after the first week!!!
Highly recommended if you are looking for a CD/mp3/ATRAC player.
And did I mention how diddy it is? Carefulit doesn't slip down the side of you sofa.
