The only real potential issue with this unit (other than if you're not smart enough to check compatibility before purchasing) is the sound quality. The reason I use the "potential" qualifier is this... if you're an audiophile type who can only be satisfied with high-end speaker systems, you will absolutely NOT accept the sound quality of this unit. If you're mainly looking for functionality and affordability, and don't necessarily need the best sound quality, this unit will likely be a good fit for you.
Personally, I fall somewhere in betweem the two, though I definately would fall on the higher end preference-wise. When I first started playing this unit, my initial impression was that I'd have to return it. However, after about 5-10 minutes playing around with my Walkman's Surround and EQ settings, I was able to improve the sound quite a bit. Like other user's comments, I concur wholeheartedly that the high-end is sorely missing here. Bass is decent for a non-sub-woofer-based unit and mids are passable... but yeah, the highs just aren't as clean and crisp as they could be. I'm listening primarily to dance music on this, so highs are really essential. If you're listening mainly to classical or maybe some types of rock, the highs may not be as important for you.
So, this is how I tweaked my settings to get the best highs and therefore best all around sound out of this unit (at least based on my preferences):
Play Mode: Nornmal (didnt change this)
EQ: .4, 1.0, 2.5 all at flat or 0, 6.3 & 16khz at +2
VPT Surround: Matrix (changed from using Club with my headphones)
DSEE Sound Enhance: On (no change)
Clear Stereo: On (no change)
I don't agree with some previous comments saying that you could not improve the sound by tweaking the EQ (or maybe the EQ on their Walkman is different than mine) because I most definately improved it about 30% by using the setting above.
In conclusion, I'd say that this is a decent unit but probably not for the super high-end user, which I would assume wouldn't be looking in this price range anyway. The thing that kind of frustrates me is that Sony could have made this unit so much better and still kept it under $200. It's a bit sad that hard-core Walkman dedicated users (or iPod boycotters) like myself don't have a higher end option for a docking station.
