Pros: Fantastic clarity, sound-stage

Cons: No expansion memory, come on SONY

The build quality is nice, sophisticated, feels like a light brick, but the screen is prone to smudges, lots!!!!

I never faced this with my Galaxy note.

The screen colors are nice but compared to Samsung's AMOLED, if feels dull.

The sound is detailed, clear and neutral, with a shy bass. I was able to hear sounds I never realized they were there with other DAPS, nice one SONY. It is best suited for live concerts and instrumental tracks (it Shines with them). But when amped with a good amp, the fun factor pops and you start appreciating what you were missing. All my reviews were done with atracplus 256 or atrac loss-less.

I can talk about it for hours, but lets keep it short and say it is one of the best sounding Walkmans SONY has made.

My only complain , is that I wished it had a memory expansion (SONY Listen to your faithful customers).

Have you had a chance to compare it with the A865 by any chance?
No, but I am looking to.

Nice.
Welcome back Kiteki! Head-fi was missing your magic....and some other stuff.
The Sony Z is a very nice DAP, lacking in some areas, but most importantly , it makes it with its SQ.
hello @turokrocks , how would this DAP compete with hdp r10 (an improved version of DX100)? Thanks
