NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!! - Page 153

post #2281 of 3984

just sold the X1060 on ebay, got more than it was listed for (wipes a lil tear away, bye bud)

post #2282 of 3984

has anyone with a walkman z tried the samsung s3 with portable dac/amp?

just wondering whether moving from the walkman z with ibasso d12 to a smansung and the ibasso d12 will be a decent jump in quality by using the ibasso dac and not the walkmans.

There are people who claimed that the S3's sound chip alone is already on par with the Z, never tried it, but just saying.

Duncan could be the best to ask as I believe he uses his S3 (also Euro-Z1060)... I'll send him a pm later.

The sound quality of s3 using the siyhas kernel and latest rom is very very good in my opinion.
The s3 is best than the Z?
I think the Z mantein a very little little advantage, but really little.
With the s3 people have the options to use an external dac or external sd (128gb)..
Anyway the Z remain a top class player.
The ipod touch third gen, that now I am selling is not comparable with S3, the distance is evident.
Pardon my english

never owned a S3 and I'm definitely not considering to upgrade/downgrade to one... if I was going to upgrade it would be for the DX100 but in truth I'm more than happy with my WM-Z.

 

upgraditis is all subjective, what you may gain you could also regret... I'll miss the X1060, a fantastic sounding DAP but needs must as I want other things (like IEM's & a amp, I'm also not a lover of hoarding stuff I hardly use).

 

as I have often iterated, the WM-Z is the best portable device I've heard or owned and I'm going upgrade (?) by amp'ing etc... if you get something you really like stick with it, your ears are not someone else's ears, the grass may look greener in another field but that's just a trick of the light.

no microsd is a big deal. 64gb extra for only $55 (korean price)?

cant disregard that so easily.

and no native flac support is quite surprising...

post #2291 of 3984

but isn't Flac a subjective question too... take a look at some of the post in the DX100 thread, some dismiss Flac as a crap file-source others see it as the be & end all, at the end of the day everything is about personal choice... if Flac is that important to you & you're after a Sony, the new F-Series gets released next week, Flac is available.

 

ps... you can save yourself $55 if you add/remove from music library, it's pretty easy to do just a couple to clicks should add/remove the albums you want... I've got 370 albums on my Z1070 in 'advance lossless Atrac'(?), I always seem to find something I like, which is lucky... hold on everything is uploaded from my CD library, phew wink_face.gif

I have the S3 and its SQ when driving iem is one of the best I have heard. I don't think you can be wrong even if you are using the S3 just as a DAP. Just pop in a 64gb micro sd and you are set for a ride.
