Awesome sound quality

NW-A40 SERIES 21/11/2017 by creampuff (USA)

Bought the 32GB version with the noise cancelling headphones included in blue. Sound stage and clarity is excellent. Interface is easy enough to navigate without delving into the operating manual. Bluetooth connectivity is fuss free. Minor niggles is the lack of a clock display, sound level display which I think should be added in future firmware upgrades. I worry about scratching the nice finish so getting the neoprene rubber cover which has a screen protector as well is a given. There is a strap holder but strangely Sony doesn't provide any hand strap in the box, which is a shame for the price of this player.

Great Sound - Lacking Features

NW-A40 SERIES 14/01/2018 by w3wilkes (USA)

The sound quality of my new NW-A45 is terrific. Now Sony needs to give it the rest of the features it deserves. It does not recognize "folder.jpg" as album art in the album folders, only embedded art is recognized. No ability to sort albums by artist / album artist. Limited smart playlist, needs to be able to set BPM range to within 2 BPM's of defined range - the current range is 10, really, that is a range of 20 BPM which doesn't work well for trying to set a pace for a run or walk. Total lack of documentation on how to construct playlists on a PC / MAC and then transfer to the NW-A45 player.
