Great video playback, but we expect better sound from a Sony

Sony NWZ-A815 review

 

Sony has dumped SonicStage for its new flash player. Hurrah say we, but can the NWZ-A815 satisfy our demanding shell-likes?

Sony's killed its rubbish software and created a brilliant-sounding, great-looking flash player

Sony - NWZ-A815

 

Sony has traditionally adopted a bit of a pompous stance with its portable music players, refusing to fall in line with the rest of the industry when it comes to adopting current standards. Despite this, the ...

The NWZ-A815 isn't perfect, but it's damn near close. If you're primarily looking to listen to audio you won't find a more adaptable, better performing or more usable media player on the shelves today.
