X1060

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 

It has been a looong time since I have been on here, but I found a Sony X1060 for $194 shipped in almost new condition.

 

Is there anything none-apple with a touch screen out there these days, that can compare to an Sony X-Series?

I am going to anticipate a bunch of cowon replies by saying: cowon.

Perhaps the new Sony A Series (NWZ-A860)?

Sounds really, really nice, good touchscreen - Downside is that it's a tad expensive for either the 32 or 64 gb.

and a gigantic size increased. bigsmile_face.gif  On a serious note, you can try the Walkman Z, namely Z1060 & Z1070.  The Z sure sounds better than the X to my ears!

X Series is definitely better than iPods.

The X is definitely a great sounding player if you like a lush midrange (very vinyl esque!)

 

The one worry these days, with the non-replaceable batteries in these players, is that you cannot guarantee how good it will be...

 

...If you're happy to take one of those USB battery charger things in your pocket, then - that thought can be ignored anyway :)

I have had mine for 3 years and it still holds charge for 20 hours. It is only about knowing how to charge these batteries and take care of them. 10-15% loss of capacity is nothing.

To me, my ipods sound just as good as I remember the X sounding.

 

I can just download the equaliser apps I want on the Touch (SonicMaxPro, EQu etc.)

Sorry to disagree with you here but the X is much better sounding than any iPods.  I've compared the X next to the iPod touch 4G and Classic 5G and the X is always a clear winner.  Much more powerful sounding, better instrument separation as well as resolution.  Eq is nice addition but the X has a great DSP too.

It's been a couple of years since I junked the X, but I don't recall its sounding much different than an iPod..certainly not any better.

 

I got rid of mine since it was already quite dated and I couldn't stand the slowness of the UI for cover art etc.

Please stop this pro-Apple spamming campaign or I will start reporting your posts. So far you have not posted once without mentioning Apple products.

The Sony Walkman Z series! I have the NWZ-A865 which sounds pretty good as well.

Well, you are entitled to your own opinion but most people prefer the X or Sony walkman with S Master Pro technology to any iPod in a direct comparison.  Not sure what is your headphones of choice but the improvements are very noticeable.
