post #2851 of 3928

I would like Sony to sold Walkmans without headphones but with a little bit lower price :)

Thank you so much for highlighting Neutron player. Downloaded it last night and ended up turning out the lights three hours later than planned. My initial impression is that I am getting better sound quality than through the stock Walkman player, which no other player had come close to matching previously. Also impressed that the buggy sluggishness and crashes that plague the stock player have not happened at all with Neutron so far. What a find!

I'm using Neutron too, clearly superior sound than others players, incluided stock player.

Since it is not a phone, I use 64bit rendering, It seems that it doesn't affect dramatically the battery.

What do you mean, does Neutron player support 64-bit floating point, on the Sony Z?  It only supports 32-bit on my Xperia Ray.

Maybe it's the nature of using high quality IEM's, but I found the stock player to be far more "enveloping" compared to Neutron.

Neutron was an excellent player but sounded like it was coming from a source, where as the Walkman player sounded more like I was completely surrounded by the music.

In my settings, there is an option called "64bit rendering". I don't know if it is real or some kind of tweak, not works on some files like "m4a".

In my case (with my UM2) this rendering is much less evident than the Neutron itself, but it remains activated biggrin.gif

Hmm well I don't know about the Sony Z but I use 64FP rendering via ASIO on my computer and it's not possible to hear any difference, until after a few weeks...

Hi,

 

Due to my walkman's slickness, it keeps sliding off my lap or even out of my pocket, thereby ripping the left earphone out of my ear. It's a really rude experience!

 

Does anyone know of a high-friction case for the Z1000?

 

Perhaps something with a rubberized exterior like those from BodyGlove.

 

Please PM me as I can't monitor this thread due to its immensity.

Same as my experience on my Japanese Z comparing Neutron with Stock!

Not if shipping is $23!  Yikes!

This adapter is just a data/charging adapter via micro USB.  Not worth the price IMO.

 I use a PDAIR branded case for my Sony Z walkman. There are 2 types

1. Case opens like a book

2. Case opens like a pad

 

I got the 2nd option, because I like the flip way. The cases are made of leatherand kinda smooth. I have never had any issue of slipping from pocket or the lap with these since I stabilize the player before removing my hand.

I use the 1st type of PDAIR case with my Z1070.  I actually like the craftsmanship but buyer should beware that the case doesn't do a good enough job of protecting the top corners as well as the bottom right corner of the unit. However, it did a great job projecting the screen and frontal of the unit though.  

 

Pictures below illustrate that the PDAIR case didn't do a good enough job protecting my Z when I dropped it against the ceramic floor.  Notice a dent located at the bottom right of my Z after my incident and a paint chipped located at the top right corner.
