Sony Walkman X Series NWZ-X1050 16GB OLED MP3 Player - £99.97 Instore @ Currys (Clearance)

Found 4th Feb 2010
Spotted this at the Cheshire Oaks store, they only had the display model left and wouldn't discount it so I didn't purchase it myself. Not sure if it's nationwide, would call Curry's to check stock before making a trip.

SKU number is: 524083

Manufacturer's blurb:
Serious about your music and video and want a portable player that delivers the best of both? Check out the X Series Walkman from Sony. The 16GB X Series has enough storage capacity for 4,000 songs or 60 hours of video.

The X Series offers unrivalled features and incredible audio and visual quality and supports a vast range of formats including MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, AVI, WMV and more so you can play a range of tracks and videos, whatever the source. Want to listen to something new? The X Series also has a built in FM tuner so you can enjoy your favourite radio stations to on the move.

The X Series is beautifully designed. It comes in a stunning graphite finish, with aluminium buttons and is built to feel slim yet solid. With a crystal clear OLED touchscreen, integrated noise-cancellation, built-in Wi-Fi for browsing the web or watching YouTube, and support for high-quality video, it's the ultimate digital media player.

Stunning 3" OLED Widescreen

The X Series has a 3-inch touch panel OLED widescreen which produces clearer and more vibrant images than any other portable media player. It means you can view your favourite movies, YouTube clips or photos in all their glory.

Images look truer and brighter because OLED technology lets you see a wider range of colours. OLED offers a faster response time than standard LED screens which makes it great for watching sport or action packed movies. A high contrast ratio and 180 degree viewing angle means you'll always see crisp, clear images. Plus OLED uses far less power than standard LCD displays meaning battery life is significantly improved.

Unmatched Sound Quality

The X Series is the best sounding Walkman to date. Four audio technologies give you an unrivalled sound experience that closely matches what was originally recorded.

S-Master audio technology, currently used in high-end HiFi equipment from Sony, lowers distortion to keep the sound clear regardless of your volume settings. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine cleverly restores some of the high frequency signals that are lost during MP3 compression. Clear Bass gives you a deep, rich bass without distortion. Clear Stereo technology ensures that the sound does not leak from either channel.

Premium in ear headphones are included to ensure that all the audio technologies are maximised for the best possible listening experience. All this makes you feel like you're with your favourite band in the studio - or experiencing a live orchestra in a concert hall.

Built-In Noise Cancelling

Because there is nothing more powerful and immersive than great music,
Sony has also added Digital Noise Cancelling to the X Series Walkman. Cancelling out up to 99% of ambient noise, you are left to enjoy nothing but the enhanced sound of your favourite tracks.

Noise Cancelling is built in to the X Series so there is no need for separate batteries or the hassle of charging noise cancelling headphones. The X Series even lets you choose your environment and includes an external input mode and adaptor for listening to in-flight entertainment systems.

I got the 8GB S-Series (therefore lower in the line range, and half the capacity) for about £40 from a deal on HUKD - excellent mp3 player, and am very happy with it. Good build quality, great battery life, iPlayer compatible.

If you need an mp3 player, and can get one of these, you wont regret it

Hot Deal (although may be store specific?)
Ive got the X1060 32gb version of this and i have to say its excellent, reviews say its the best sounding mp3 player out there. Voted hot!
anyone know if this can bookmark the position in mp3s? eg, for listening to an audiobook, then some music and then resuming at the right point of the audiobook?
