Flawed Perfection
 
I do really like what Sony have produced with this HDD player, however certain aspects have left me very frustrated. The file transfer software is very basic and failed a number of times. I 'phoned the helpdesk in the end who were helpful. I had over 4,000 tracks to transfer and left it running overnight, so don't expect anything too quick. It then took a good part of the following day to get the album art etc. Had to turn off and restart on a number of occassions for it too eventually work thro...

Hugely exceeds expectations
 
After three weeks use I have nothing but praise for this amazing machine. The extraordinary sound quality does not only result from high resolution files but also from the top notch amplification which the machine provides. Operationally if it is simplicity itself. The controls are very straightforward and the phone app works brilliantly. I have already recommended the product to other friends.

Cool Factor of 10
 
Easy to set up and transferred my complete iTunes catalog from my MAC via wi-fi. Unit sounds awesome and looks great. iPhone App is cool and very user friendly. Too many features to list but i am having fun trying them all out. Could not be happier.

Great music but no storage
 
Bought the unit so I could download & listen to hi-rez music - the system works great in that regard but it will not accept an external hard drive through the USB port as advertised. On-line product manual lacks a troubleshooting section. So instead of 3.5 tb of storage I'm stuck with the unit's internal hard drive - highly disappointed & frustrated. No hotline from Sony to help so what's one to do?

Decent Player
 
Unit plays well and sounds good. Easy to store songs, albeit a little slow. Drawbacks are that you cannot delete a song from a playlist without deleting the song entirely and unable to view songs within a playlist. Has no HD playback outputs. Also would be useful to have it's IR codes so it could be controlled by a master remote.

Great sound
 
I bought this Sony to store all my music , selling or giving most of my CDs. Sound quality is great paired with a pair of Boston a26 speakers. The down side There are not many hi-def down loads avalible in the UK Both the control app (android) and the transfer software (windows) need a lot of work on them. The transfer software fails to update automatically and I have start the transfer in the manual mode and control app often fails to find the Hap-s1 Get the software sorted and you would have a...

Great HAP-S1
 
Sounds great, I compared this Sony HAP-S1 VS Shiit Befrost DAC with MAC, like a DAC and player, and I didn't notice to much difference, this Sony tens to have a warm sound with good body on the mids, The other comparison was, the amp section, this VS NAD, the results, I can live with the Sony while I change NAD; sounds very good! I wish it had a easy browser to connect a USB memory or HD in order to see the music archives, it just work for a expansion drive of the internal HD. I hope Sony add th...

Everything I expected - and more
 
The HAPS-1 has released my ATRAC lossless files from their SonicStage prison on my pc and reinvigorated them with sparkling resolution and detail. This was just what I wanted and I get to control the beast from my tablet. It's well worth the cost.
