Lets do a little math. For a 1GB of storage to yield 695 songs that means the average size of the song would be 1.43MB.

I've not used ATRAC, but MP3, AAC, and WMA (even though it claims otherwise) won't do this without sounding terrible. Playing on your computer speakers is one thing but in headphones you hear every pop and artifact.

In truth, this player will hold no more songs than an iPod shuffle without transcoding them down to a low bitrate. Transcoding every song before copying it to the player will take incredibly long on even the fastest of computers.

Don't believe the hype. You get 1GB of storage, not 695 songs. Thats the truth. Does Sony some how think that Apple became the number one Mp3 player maker by lying about its storage capacity? Just be honest. When people try to put 700 of their favorite MP3's on their new walkman and only 250 fit, do you think they are going to be happy?

You are just right. I did'n calculate it, sorry. Avarage mp3 file size is ~4 MB so it stores 250 mp3 file. Thanks for correction
