Sony A-Series Walkman Delayed in Europe? (update 2)


Update 2 -  It appears the device is in stock now, so I have put in an order for my A15, hopefully will arrive by tomorrow or Monday.

Update - Sony Poland says there is no delay and the new A-Series will be available in stores from the middle of October, well I will check this out in the next 2 weeks to see if this is true.

I was about to order my A-Series this morning here in Poland but had a bit of a surprise when I saw the expected delivery date, late October.  This is unfortunate and I have no idea why the date has changed or if the first date of Early October was a mistake.

I have checked Sony Poland, Germany, and UK, all have a late October shipping date, from 22nd to 29th of October.   I have not checked any other Sony websites, but Amazon.co.uk is not carrying the player yet and Amazon.de has no specific ship date.  I am sure this is the same situation across Europe, since last week Redcoon.de had the player in shipping this week, but now 1-2 weeks or even months for the black version.  Granted the new A-Series will be shipping much later in Asia as well so perhaps this delay was inevitable.

If anyone knows any retailer from Hong Kong that will ship internationally the A-Series, please leave a comment/link or email me.  Thanks.

  1. Hello,

    just ordered a black Sony NWZ-A15 today at the German Sony Online Shop with delivery date announced for 30.-31.10.2014.
    To my surprise when rechecking my account and order at the store the package has been dispatched alreday today!!! Unfortunately no Email has arrived yet but it usually takes quite long to get the dispatch note (know it from previous orders there).

    So seems there is no delay...

    Hope that helps!

  4. Short update: Just phoned the Sony Support and they told me it is handed over to parcel service already. And shortly after hanging up the call the dispatch notification mail arrived. So it is on the way :-)

  6. Hello again: Player has been delivered today. So I am quite lucky with the sound quality - very crisp and clear. Cannot say more at the moment about it as I have to test it thoroughly.

    For anyone interested in the complete manual and specifications. There was a link printed on the backside of the quick reference guide:
