Sony NW-A55 Walkman Digital Music Player Review

Sony NW-A55 Walkman Digital Music Player Review

So, the other day I went to K's Denki, a local electronics store I like to go to, which is near my house. I have wanted a MP3 player for a while since I sold my silver Sony Walkman to my dad a while back. I was thinking of a model with buttons, but I decided touch-screen model might be alright too. I finally decided to get a Sony NW-A55 in metallic blue. I really like the color, and must get a screen protector soon. 

Alright, here comes the real review. 
For connection with a Mac, I am using the Content Transfer for Mac. The transfer speed of this device when copying Podcasts from Mac OS X's podcast downloaded by iTunes is very fast; I could copy 300+ tracks very quickly (with doubles, but that is automtically detected so it saves time!)

I am listening to Ed Sheeran's new album, No.6, and the songs come up very lively. I think you can't get this audio quality on an iPhone. (I have iPhone 6s right now and used iPhone XS). 

The microSDXC slot on the NW-A55 is expandable to 128GB officially. I would like to try an 256GB or 512GB card if it becomes available cheap in the future.... ;-)

The sound quality of NW-A55 is good enough so that even with my $50.00 audio technica headphone becomes very rich and lively sound. I will listen to the same songs with my Sony noise cancelling headphone I bought in Atlanta, Georgia back in 2018. I think it will sound terrific.

Well, that's my quick review.

I’ve been studying information retrieval systems from the 60’s and 70’s and I found a video on YouTube about Lockheed DIALOG.
