NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!! - Page 219

post #3271 of 3909

Eh, dumb question.

 

How do you search for a specific song on the default Walkman app?

 

I'm very used to Android and that stuff, and on my Xperia S, which also has a Walkman music software, there's the option on the menu to search for a file. Having to go through Library > Artist > Album > Alphabetically unsorted songs is a pain in the ass, as if there was no keyboard to begin with.

AFAIK, there's no such option.

Purchased a Walkman Z 8GB on ebay last night for $122 shipped (Brand New).  I think this would be a great deal if the internal storage could be expanded, I'd rather not lug a portable HDD and amp.

 

I was wondering if anyone knew if the storage was soldered on or not.

 

Personally I find this expensive considering the lack of support and 3rd party accessories, but I had to buy a Zune HD and stumble on this thread >.>

 

There's 3 left for those that are looking to shop:

So Zune HD > Fuze V2 > Walkman Z in the same week lol

You can also buy one from an e-bay seller with a mini input.  Then use a high quality mini-to-mini cable or mini-to-rca cable when connecting to an amplifier.

Hi Purk, 

 

Do you happen to know if the mini usb adaptor port plug can be used to connect to an external dac at all?

I've not tried this.  Maybe others can enlighten us all?

There is no mini USB port. That's a mini HDMI port on the side. But you can obtain line out via the proprietary charge and dock port on the bottom. Fiio make an inexpensive cable for that. Frankly the quality from the HP output is very good and have not felt the need to use a DAC or amp. If you're looking for super SQ from a DAC/amp, you'd probably use a better source anyway. The Z is all about portability.

Re the 8gb Z1040; it is too small as some of that 8gb gets used up by the OS. 16gb is far more useful or even better I bought a 64gb from Japan I was so impressed with the Z. With the 8 you'll probably find yourself needing to stream from a DLNA source or Internet source.

I think he meant whether or not one can by pass the internal DAC.  Many Andriod phones allow such connection.  I agree that the Z has a great headphones out and amping the line out isn't necessary.  However, I prefer the F walkman over the Z for portability.  If I choose one device to take with me every where I go, it will be the F not the Z or the A due to a small form factor and nice functionality.

Can anyone in here truly say that they've compared a walkman player to a colorfly ck4+ ? I was gonna get a walkman f but then I started talking to sum people and they all said go with the colorfly ck4+ cause it sounds better, has expandable memory, and is only 200$. I just need someone to throw me a bone here

I was referring to this that Purk had mentioned in an earlier thread: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/360628858991?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

 

Was asking on some else behalf as I do not personally need one myself.  I had the Z1070 myself and imo is far from truely been portable which is why I still keep the X and if the F had hard buttons I would be sold.  I only use WAV on my X and flac when I had the Z. 

 

The HP out on the Z was even more ground breaking than those before it but with the right portable amp will tighten things up further with more authority lending to better control/ definition and lead to more blackness long as no impendance issues.  

 

I still miss the Z and have considered going back but am staying strong awaiting that next flagship model (if the day ever comes) that has those hard playback controls back on top with the size of the F and obviously if possible the SQ surpassing the Z & F!

I did indeedy.

Yep... Sorry I got that totally wrong. eek.gif Missed clicking the ebay the link... thought it was the ebay link from the previous post to the 8gb Z that I also referred to in my reply.

 

In any case I think the Fiio L5 connector is a safe bet as it is certain to have line out.

Fortis...

 

I'm going to be taking my HTC One on Saturday, and the Z (as you have the X I won't take mine) - to try to tempt you to the dark side ;o)

 

To my ears the One is better than the amped Z...

 

;o)
