NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!! - Page 262

post #3916 of 3927
Wow, good to see I wasn't alone in thinking this. I was just about to come post my impressions after the update to 2.03, and they very much echo that of flyer1. I feel that this update has made the player sound more natural/organic than the previous updates. There is now more blackness or clarity between notes, which sound more distinct and now the sense of the sound in 3-d is more heightened. Vocals are also more refined. At least these are my superficial findings.

Another comparison today using Stevie Wonder's definitive collection on MP3 320. As Honeyboy mentions:the 3d effect in the music and seperation between instruments is fantastic. I also now seem to notice a this time noticable effect when putting DSEE on but still not sure if I hear this correct..

Very pleased with this latest update:)

Updated to 2.03 OTA last night, and it seems to have improved homescreen performance considerably!

Weird because I am pretty sure I had already updated to 2.03 ..

Realese: 23 Apr 2014   2.03     244.00 MB

 

In URL_SONY say... ==> Other improvements in functional ...

 

__What changed items as: 

 

==> Design of submission of Initial Display, Icons ... was updating Aplications Native Apps SONY WALKMAN? 
==> I remember when I updated my firmware original v.1.00 for the 2:01 battery life increased from 24 hours to 34 hours MP4 Player, so great! 

________Anyway, what has changed and what we'll all be wondering. 

_____I remember my MODEL , is ASIA - firmware version is Asia. "NWZ-Z1000_V2_03_0009.exe"

 

OBS: IMPORTANT - WARNING!!!

Actually there are programs available all the way from 0001 to 0014, but I do not comprehend the purposes of doing so. How many retail regions does Sony have anyway?
Japan: 0000
America: 0001
Canada: 0002 (I fail to understand why the US and Canadian versions are different, FCC vs. whatever Canadian equivalent?)
Asia-Pacific (including Hong Kong): 0009  (This is my è BUILD 0009 com o Original FirmWare)
Mainland China: 0013

0005 seems to be the European version. Or one of them at least...

(Italy) which is 0004 and enjoying ICS!

Germany: 0005

UK: 0014

With 2.03 the battery seems to be lasting longer, without wifi. Just tried the free cloudampz app for android, it lets you play flac uploaded to Box, works flawlessly so that's potentially another 50 GB of music I could be streaming to the Z... No more space constraints!

Just WiFi constraints, haha :D

I wish Sony put more emphasis in Sound Quality in their smartphone division like they used to.  Walkman phones Sony.. I need a new Walkman phone..   

post #3924 of 3927

Someone felt or noticed with New Version 2:03 FirmWare the battery seems to be lasting longer in MUSIC MP3 file at between 128 192 or 320kbps?

There have been changes in Layout? Visual Themes, Wallpaper's? 
Finally a sound recorder?

post #3925 of 3927

Anyone know a good DAC that can be connected via. line in beside PHA-2.

I need something as slim as the Z walkman.

Have you seen the Geek Wave?

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/geek-wave-it-s-not-a-next-gen-ipod-it-s-a-no-compromise-portable-music-player


Thinking about replacing my Walkman with it, but it seems to be a little too good to be true :/

post #3927 of 3927

Why would anyone name a player 'Geek Wave' ?:confused_face(1):

 

Anyways I still love the Z walkman and I guess it will be with me till death do us apart.
