Would an NWZ-Z1060 for about $235 new be worth it? I have an A818 which I love but it's starting to fall apart; I don't really like the huge screen and oldish Android of the Z but I would be more than willing to put up with that for good sound (I've followed this thread so I know about the update to a newer Android in December)...

 

The F series sounds nice but it's about $400 over here and unlikely to go down; to be used with XBA-4's which I already have. This is in Mexico City but it might be a bit of hassle to get it at that price...

Since you're asking in this thread, you can guess what I'll say....a resounding YES! =D

 

I would, however, buy a protective case of some sort before using it outside the home.  The backside's a fingerprint magnet.

I hope he'll be back (soon?).  He's more than an OK-Guy in my books. :)

there is a considerable physical size and weight difference between the z and the f. worth thinking about if those factors are important to you

I'm finally joining the Sony Z1070 club, leather case and all!

Its more of an army than a club, as we have been in war with the other side for some time, and still....biggrin.gif.

post #2648 of 3927

Black colour like my soul.

Thanks, yeah, I didn't need much of a push! I've only found the PDair case though - I prefer non leather.

Yes, I know, the F looks perfect size-wise... But I may have been able to get the Z at at a good price... Since my phone is smallish I'm trying to convince myself of the advantage of a bigger screen...

i had the 1070 for a few months. loved everything about it. apart from the size. just too big for anything other than using around the house. if the z was the f in size then i would have kept the thing for sure.

How does the F compare in sound though?  I'm a little skeptical of Sony's latest products they seem to focus a little more on marketing and less on high-end audio.

If you look at the Discman players, at one time they were at the pinnacles of human, portable sound quality and technology.  Then they declined into junk.

The Z's Bass is punchier, more revealing , the F's bass is more refined.
The F is more detailed neutral in general than the Z, not necessarily better, but different.
