This review is from: Sony NWZA845B A series Walkman 16GB MP3 Player with 2.8 inch OLED Screen (Electronics)
If like me you want an MP3 Player for listening to high quality music then you'll do no better than the NWZ-A845. The sound quality is stunning and with the option of changing the preset music settings and activating the Equalizer you can optimize this fantastic player to suit your own ears.
I'm into classical music and think this player is wonderful. Strings are not too bright. Bass is tight and controlled and on a well recorded piece such as Anne-Sophie Mutters Sibelius Violin Concerto you can even hear the bite of the bow on the strings. It has a dynamic sound stage and you can easily pick out the position of the instruments in the orchestra. Likewise, in Tchaikovsky's Tempest Overture the bass comes in as early as it does on my Hi Fi system with the sub woofer on. How on earth Sony have managed to get such deep bass through this small player and headphones I don't know. Wow!
All in all I think this is a wonderful little player and my only suggestion would be for Sony to produce one with more than a 16Gb memory.
