It is the same player but NWZ-A15 comes with 32 GB and A17 with 64 GB internal memory. Both can accept microsd cards up to 128 GB.
How does this differ from the NWZ-A15?
No line out? Kind of a deal breaker for me.
It has line out through the dock connector.
So far I have been happy with this item. It has good sound and good extra storage with the microSD card slot. It has great battery life compared to my old IPOD 4 128 GB or my iPhone 6. It sounds better than both. It is smaller then a smartphone and much thinner than an iPod 4. The interface is not that bad. You can get to a playlist, artist, or album quickly. At the 260 lowest price it is worth it.
The interface is horrid - does Sony support / update the firmware on this ever?
And will it last forever like my Zune HD?
Last forever? Lol, Microsoft R.I.P Zune when Steve Jobs was still around.
My Zune HD still works flawlessly and holds a good charge after 4 years.
Can someone please confirm if this is using standard USB cable or if it is proprietary Sony cable? At one time Sony used to slap proprietary cables on anything so traveling with their products used to be utter nightmare.
Proprietary Sony to USB cable.
With 30 - 50 hours of battery life (depending on audio quality and volume) I wouldn't think it's too much of a concern.

Samsung's high-end Galaxy line is usually outfitted with two types of chipsets - Snapdragon or the homebrew Exynos. Qualcomm's Snapdragon comes with an embedded analog converter (DAC), while for the Exynos version Samsung usually outfits the phones with a dedicated, higher-quality sound processor, and the Note 4 is no exception. just like the Galaxy S5 before that. Its Exynos 7 Octa version has been granted a Wolfson Microelectronics WM5110E Audio Hub CODEC with a Voice Processor DSP, a teardown revealed, and, coupled with the three directional mics that record high quality stereo audio, the Exynos Note 4 is one of your good bets for a quality audio experience, when paired with top-shelf earbuds, and despite the lack of stereo speakers.
Can we chose colors this time or is it only silver?
Only silver
Product Update:
Went from iPOD classic to Sansa Clip+. I thought the audio quality was pretty much the same.
Coming from the Clip+ to this Walkman... Audio quality is substantially better. I'm hearing parts of songs I've never heard before. All I did was swap the SD card from the Clip+ to the Walkman. There is no change in data. Highs are crisp, lows are punchy without being overbearing, and I think for the first time I can acutely understand lyrics.

I'm thrilled with this product. Good on Sony!
