A Fun Player
 
I'm only giving this product 4 stars due to it's having to go in for warranty repair (defective display), after only 3 months. I was also unhappy in having to spend the money to ship it clear across the country. In addition, I received 2 phone calls, from Sony representatives, offering to replace the player with a new unit, but never received follow up calls so that I could give them my shipping address. On the other hand, the company that did the repairs was very professional and kept i...

Sony to the Rescue!
 
I've finally found a great solution for enjoying my fairly large music collection: over the last few years I was using a Squeezebox with a dedicated DAC to feed my high-end Stereo system. Although the sound quality wasn't bad, I eventually grew tired of relying on the capricious nature of the computer/ WiFi setup and began searching for a more reliable alternative. I've included the YouTube link to a video that helped greatly with my decision to purchase the HAP-1. The HAP-S1 i...

Sony Comes Through Again
 
I have been a long time Sony fan and once again Sony comes through. I am now able to access and easily control my vast library of uncompressed files. I had been using my laptop with an external DAC connected to a Sony amp. The sound quality was far better than listening to compressed files to say the least. But, the procedure was a bit cumbersome and included too many variables that have now been eliminated. The HAP S-1 has a much better DAC than what I was using. I enjoy listening to my music ...

Sony HAP-S1 HDD Audio Player
 
What a fantastic piece of equipment from Sony. As soon as you pick it up you know you have a quality product. I choose not to use the Sony Software for downloading files to the player. Instead I just dragged and dropped my audio files from my PC to the player. I downloaded my Apple Lossless (ALAC) files from iTunes and a couple of DSD files. Everything played and sounded great using the internal amp, even the DSD 128 file. The Sony DSEE mode for making mp3 files sound better, also worked o...

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...

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.

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.

GOOD BUT BAD
 
Good as a media player, excellent screen and all but as an audiophile I am looking for a media player which has the pre out, HDMI out and of course it must have the ability to play almost all the audio and video formats. Its a sort of an HTPC with sufficient memory (RAM) and all, in a new feature..

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.
