Yes, another possibility. Does anybody know how to get the device to Germany actually? Except flying to the US just for buying that device. ;-)

I've not yet spotted the update anywhere on the English Sony site.
i still have version 1.3 on mine. maybe it will take a bit longer for version 1.4 to migrate over to the english version.

I don't think they're going for a second version. Everything but that. If anything, discontinuation seems plausible. They have not lowered the price to anything that would yield real profit, nor has it generated sufficient data to analyze the market. If anything, the lack of sells (which it surely had) will tell Sony to back out. If you were Sony (not that Sony followed everyday logic, but eh), would you invest in another device, which then would be sold at a much higher price (say $1500) again? And all the few folks in that niche market, they have bought the DPT-S1 by now. Highly unlikely move.

I think you are right. Sony makes good products but they always seem to dumb for the market and afterwards they wonder why they didn't make any profit. There must be a big amount of high management members that should be fired around the world immediately!

Fwiw, I can confirm Sony's reluctance to ship, again. I tried ordering it to an address in the US, but after the order had stuck as "Preparing for shipment" for two days, I called them. The lady on the phone was very nice and explained to me that they failed to verify my address and phone number. But after I explained to her that I'm currently abroad and thus could not respond to any calls on that number, she assured me that she had set things in order and I'd receive a FedEx tracking number for the parcel shortly.

12 hours later, I received an automated cancellation notice for my order.

sony is selling direct to consumers in the U.S. for $799.

i guess the ebay route is an option for those who can't get it direct from sony. but still, it's $200 more.

...but it appears to be on backorder.

If one can wait, then the savings is $200.
