Product Description

It is one of the smallest, lightest and sexiest audio players yet and it is a Sony. Store up to 13,000 songs in the high quality ATRAC format on the embedded 20GB hard disk, all in a device no bigger than the palm of your hand. The player is also compatible with any MP3 or non-encrypted WMA files via the supplied SonicStage software. But, as this is a hard disk integrated audio player, PC files and pictures can also be stored. Easy access from your PC and fast data transfer make the NW-HD1 the most versatil...

when i first got the player i loved it, and still do so so much. one thing though was that i thought it was a bit quiet. but i've descovered a way to make it about 20% louder! follow these instructions!
1) To enter the service menu, first make sure the player is on (i e plays a track).
2) Stop playback.
3) Set the player to HOLD immediately by sliding the HOLD switch on the bottom of the player to the right.
4) While holding down the MODE button, enter the following key combination using the navigation wheel:
RIGHT RIGHT LEFT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT UP DOWN
5) Now as you disable HOLD, the display goes dark and says "POWER". Don't worry that the display is non-backlit - it is normal and you will reset it to backlit in the last step. Anyway, you are now inside the service menu.
6) Click UP so that the display says "OTHER".
7) Click RIGHT so the display says "G TEST".
8) Click UP as many times as needed until the display says "SP SET".
9) Click on the PLAY button. If the display says "OFF", than you might just as well leave the service menu (go to step 11) because you are using a non-throttled player. However if the display says "ON", it means that it the player is set to restricted output.
10) Click on the MODE button so that the display shows "OFF".
11) Press the PLAY button to store the new setting. Now the display should say "SP SET".
12) Hold down the MENU button until the unit performs a normal startup and displays the WALKMAN logo.
13) You must now enable the backlight again by using the normal Menu function.

Firstly I have to admit that I have not used any other digital players. I was considering the iPod but they have become something of a cliche for me.
I have to say that I am very satisfied with this player. It does what I want it to do and as a first time user of any software that converts CDs to another format - the software works very well. As I'm not intending to use MP3s but put my CDs onto the player, the lack of proper MP3 support does not matter to me. Sound quality does and coming from Minidisc (which gave me the quality and size I was looking for at that time) I knew that the ATRAC format should be just as good on this player. I have to say that I have not been disappointed.
The size of it is really great - I can't get over the fact that eventually I'll have about 5000 tracks on it (I'm using 132kbps).
As for the loudness of it - it depends upon the headphones. I did use a pair of SHURE e2c's and while they did sound loud enough it lacked the bass I had been used to. I switched back to my SONY ex70's and although not as loud - I think they are much better suited.
Battery life is also good. I've had the unit for three weeks now. On the first charge it only lasted about 8 hours but on the second charge it lasted around 20 hours - this was at playing it 2 hours a day. I expect that the time will increase once the battery is upto full capacity (it takes a couple of charges and full discharges to achieve this).
The lack of remote control on such an expensive unit is abit of a disappointment but then the new generation iPods don't have them included either.
As for that docking station - people do complain about this.

Of course when buying a mp3 player the apple i-pod will always cross you're mind, and i had a good look at it but this mp3 player wins hands down, in nearly every department. Forget the i-pod this is an all round better mp3 player, and of course its cheaper than an i-pod (on amazon at least.)
Firstly, it looks very cool and is extremely small and when buying an mp3 player looks are a main selling point. The polished metal is very stylish and the display is very nice, even if it is sussetpable to marks and fingerprints stick out on it but the clean once every so often keeps it relatively clean.
Also the sound quality is amazing even on the setting it comes with (64kps per second) and that leaves loads of space for songs still left. It is very easy to navigae and it is all done on the computer before the songs are uploaded and it only sorts them into albums instead of albums AND artsits which is completly unessesary and makes the songs hard to access. Sony keep it easy.
Also i have heard complaints about converting MP3 files to ATARAC, it is quite simple as the software is already provided and takes a few seconds. Also the fact it doesnt come without a remote is a dissapointment but neither does the i-pod.
Altogther this a brilliant mp3 player and i would recommend it to anyone interested, it is light years ahead of the i-pod and it looks better, plays better and is very easy to use

I start from somewhere different. I'm not interested in rock/pop/whatever or downloading tunes. But, over the years, I've acquired a collection of cherished CD's that my wife doesn't want to hear (even though some of them were gifts from her!) I bought the Sony machine so that I could listen privately while working or reading. So far (60 hours after purchase) I find it mind-blowing. I've loaded 46 CD's covering a wide range (Classical, Musicals - Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, etc -, Opera, World Music, Cabaret, Jazz) and the quality is phenomenal. I've still got space for another couple of hundred CD's, which I don't actually have. The earphones are no better and no worse than other similar ones; I find all of them uncomfortable, but have got round this by using (v. expensive but v. comfortable) Bang and Olufsen earphones that I bought some years ago for listening to music on long-haul flights. The only problem that I've had is that the software refuses to read some CDs, but this is not the fault of the Walkman itself. The acid test? One of my CDs is by a classical violin and viola duo who are old friends; I have heard their repertoire live in a concert hall, and also in a family living room setting. The Walkman reproduced it perfectly; I was transported back to their live performance. I'm not qualified to judge between MP3, WAV, etc., but if Atrac3plus can do that for me, that's as good as it gets.
