    Firstly, hello to everyone.

    This forum is magnificent. It's great to finally find a forum about gadgets. Quality!

    Now I have a question that looks like it's been asked a few times but I can't find the link to it. I am going to go and buy the new Sony NW-HD5 tomorrow and I've read that you can turn the volume up higher the EU regs by going into the menus or something. Can someone post the link to the thread where the solution is for turning the volume up? That'd be really appreciated.

    Also which is the best one to the get? The black one looks cool.

    Thanks a lot everyone.

    Stay away from the silver one - there might be a recall pending - the buttons have been cracking left right and centre - see the thread about it!!

    I spent the extra bit and went for the 30gb, which I'd recommend if you can spare the cash. It's also got black buttons.. so far no hint of any cracking or issues. :)

    Just to let everyone know. If you are wondering about cases for the HD5. Ive tried the leather case from my old MD player (NZ-910) it fits perfectly even when in the crappy supplied one.

    Ill try and get some pics up this week to show you all what I mean.
