Unfortunately the high price seems to be a case of only a few places stocking this player. Actually, I can only find one UK shop with this in stock. Hopefully places like Play and Amazon will get this in, and then we might see price drops.

It's a shame as I've been looking at this Sony replace a full-to-capacity iPod Nano. I'm hoping Apple will release a 32GB Nano, as I just want a small device to play music without all the Apps & other features. It seems though as soon as you go above 16GB, you have to buy a device that does a lot more then just play music.

Advanced MP3 Players appears to be the primary (even exclusive it seems) retailer in the UK at present, so you're spot on. I personally wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if the price comes down a bit.

Hopefully in a few months (when I'd be looking to buy a new mp3 player) it will be available in a few more shops, and the price will have come down a bit.

And (forgot to say) thanks for the excellent review.
