After a lot of wait and reading this forum finally I've received my HD5. CocaCola made a promotion in Spain where you can win one of this players free or buy one for 175 Euros. I think it was a great oportunity to have this great player. And ordered one. The player arrived in red color. I hoped to have a silver one as it looks better for me. But now I'm getting used to the red and I think it looks great too. I was afraid of using SonicStage after reading all the comments here. But I've found it's a great software. It's very easy to use and untill now I've had no major problems. The only one I've found is that if I choose transfer options in preferences when my HD5 is not conected to the PC it crashes. I suppose it needs to check what formats the player supports. I've already hacked the volume, updated the firmware and installed SonicStage 3.2 without problems. Now I only have some small doubts. Now SonicStage 3.2 supports many formats and bitrates. I think that the better for me will be to use ATRAC3Plus 128Kbps. But I've noticed that the player can't reproduce it. I can understand how can support only 64 (too low) and 256 (too high) bitrates and can supports any bitrate on MP3. Also I've noticed that SonicStage can only encode ripped CD's to ATRAC3Plus and not imported sound files. Can somebody explain me this? Appart from the file formats I'm extremelly happy with the HD5. It's simply amazing!!!
