Will do a comparison between my other Z still on 2.02 and the one already updated to 2.03 and report back:)

Hey guys appreciate all the info. I have shure se846 iems and they play best on a player with low impedance . Would the sony walkman s780 work well with the iems? Thanks!

Hey guys,
A proud NW-Z1070 owner for two years here :-) I use Ultrasone Pro 2900 headphones and the result is amazing.
I was just wondering is ZX1 worth the money? Can anyone compare the sound quality of the two?

 

Thanks.

Issues with your z1070? If not, might be worth getting a DAC/amp with the money if you want better sound.

No, not actually. I'm pleased with my Z1070.

As far as I can see, 128GB memory space of ZX1 is very appealing. And there's a big question mark on my mind about this 'HD Audio'
I guess it means that the player has a 24 bit DAC. But since all my music files are 16bit, will it work as an up-scaling player? ...and even if so, would it make a difference? Frankly I don't hear any difference with my 24 bit DAC in my hi-fi system while listening to CD's.

 

As to your point about getting a DAC/amp, I'm also puzzled. Since the output of the walkman is analog, how will a DAC help with the sound quality? Can you even feed an analog line to a  DAC?  The sound level is also good for me, so why would I need an external amp?

 

Thank you very much.
