post #3557 of 3909
Friends ... excuse me ignorance ...
 
1st Question => My Sony Walkman NWZ-Z1060-32GB, claims to have 500MB of RAM, OK
Because ANDROID shows only an average of 345MB, 168MB where this the other??
 
2nd Question =>  After I do the Up-Date for my Z, 1.00 firmware to 2.01, where tbe swapped ANDROID 2.3 to 4.0 ICS, I realized clearly that the TOTAL VOLUME OF SOUND, have one DECREASED  about 20%., in Qty Volume and Quality !
And, in my (humble opinion) the NWZ-Z1000 with ANDROID 4.0 worsened sound quality ..!!
Does SONY, when upgrading or decrease is the QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCT??
 
3nd Question => Is normal, I have noticed a small FALL performance in the General Android 4.0 on my NWZ-Z1060 (Japan) after the Update of Android 2.3 to Android 4.0??
 
After all, and I (we consumers) gain in updating the firmware of our NWZ of 1.00 (defalt-Original) for version 2.01??
 
_______O I won??
 
Tell me what you guys think ...

1 - My cousin was wondering the same exact thing.  I assume the 168MB would go into running the OS and Services, Android 4.0 takes more RAM.

 

2 - I have not heard a decrease in volume.  I use low impendance headphones, so I never adjust the volume to max.  Maybe I did not notice this?

 

3 - Yes there is decrease in performance, and they still have not fixed their software yet!  The notifications still seem to have issues, and the battery life is erratic.

 

Sony always does this with their products.  For some reason they roll an update, and decide to introduce new bugs and or blatantly disregard already present ones.  Their C902 update made me lose over 30% cellular signal and reduced battery life.  They could have at least noted that your phone would be crippled after the update, lol.

Sorry friends 

But I want to share, share with you what I'm going (who like the NWZ-Z100 series) to just BUY a tiny Built-In Speaker

 

My request for a replacement SONY:

 

Dear Suport team SONY.....The problem in my NWZ-Z1000 series (NO SOUND in Built-Speaker) was (Flat-Cable)  Speaker who "broke". I did a I solved partially, made ​​a "bridge, amendment with solder"
- Provisional Temporary - transitore - connection and is working 100%.  BUT, I WANT ONE NEW BUILT-SPEAKER Piece.

I consider the MINIMUM of customer attention, my person, me, who paid $ 700 in Brazil ($ 300 in USA) is a simple, small PART-UNIT, the one "NEW SPEAKER PART - UNIT. of my SONY WALKMAN NWZ-Z100 series.
I want to pay, buy. I want pay Shipping. Just need to know where to buy.
I persevere, I insist !!! in BRAZIL can not BUY this Part-Unit.
Please, I want help from SONY TEAM SUPORT


What I want, really, is to buy a NEW SPEAKER, I have his picture.  (((is Attached in this mail))
In Brazil, I can not. I need to know some website ... e-bay etc ... where I can BUY ORIGINAL Speaker Out NWZ-Z1000.

 

Sony's answer =>

Dear Mr. Moreira,
Thank you for your e-mail via Info-CS.
With regards to your concern, please understand that component of product of Sony Hong Kong are not for sale individually, this is due to concerns over the fitment of the component on the product, and the possible effect.
If a hardware issue is suspected on a Sony product, it would be suggested for the local Sony branch to be contact for further assistance toward a possible repair of the product in question.

 

I answer for SONY ==> 

 

Dear Wai Ching

 

Friend ... you are an intelligent person, OK
I'm talking to an experienced technician here in Brazil, only the Flat-Cable and the sound came usually working great, including notice of changes xLOUD and CLEAR PHASE when connected to the system.
Friend, I, I just want a piece, just buy a tiny spare part.
I have this right?
Because only the SONY does it?
I'll put the story on you-tube and Groups Reviews ...

 

Then wonder why buy products on e-bay .... Simple, they sell, not just a car, complete car, but also sell spare parts.

Just to second Purk's answer to your Q, I went from the A829 to the X series and have to say in terms of more resolution in detail the X was a step up from the word go, but they had quite different signatures which is then a personal preference to which floats ones boat more than the other.  I still liked the Signature of the A829 but when you are missing detail or it's lacking in other areas in comparison i.e. soundstage might of been another maybe it mad it hard to justify keeping it at the time especially with only 16gb on board.   The A829 was a lovely player ergonomically and build wise (as usual).

Your posts have been interesting to say the least as it is not often people come on here with random outbursts of Tourette's.  

 

I am an advocator of free speech and opinion but am perplexed as to why you feel you just have to come on to what is in essence an appreciation thread now for the Z and just keep saying negative random expletives about the subject matter in the Walkman Z without any constructive criticism and keep banging on about other models or brands that sound better why don't you just spend your time instead over on those appreciation threads and be positive about something you like  instead of been a negative Z hater. Seriously you are just clogging up the thread with information that is not useful for people who are interested in the Z.

 

I don't usually do these sort of post's but when there is someone with the approach of a 10 year old who talks before thinking it is a case of;  if you have nothing to say or at least if it is a criticism or a gripe of a product on a appreciation thread unless it is constructive maybe be best to jog on by......

I think he had some problem with the player, called Sony support, didnt get what he expected and now hates it!

I could see you preferring the A865 over your Z, but since you said that your iPads do sound much better than the Z then...I have no choice but to think that your Z is defective here.  Have you compared your Z with other's Z walkman?
