It seems that Sony really is on the verge of bankruptcy. They had the idea to revive the Walkman in a digital version that costs 1.2 thousand U.S. dollars!
I assume that you have never compared prices between a consumer grade CD player and an audiophile CD transport, outboard DAC, power supply and connecting cables?
The Mark Levinson No 31 still commands north of $3k USD and that is over a decade old.
I have listened to a CD played through $200k in gear and cables (not my stuff, unfortunately).
At $1,200, this is nothing in the audiophile market.
