I'm very interested, I guess this kind of product will dominate the portable amp/dac market.

Funny man.

The latest Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Note II can interwork with the Sony PHA-1:

This and the Pan Am are my two favourite DACs of this year. Incredible how the portable audio world is heating up.

So would you say its better than the HP-P1?

 

Great job on the review BTW.

The most important question  is, will the  PHA-1 work with the current Android powered Walkman Z or F series  as a USB dac/amp ????  Sony supplies a wmp-lod with it.

 

Did any one try this, or can .

would the WM-Z's mini-usb work with it or is that just a dedicated HDMI out?

The PHA-1 will not bypass the walkman, very strange but yea! They think the sound of their own walkman is still good enough (which i agree). This is purely for idevices. You will be lucky to see this product sell in US or Europe. 

Believe it or not apples sells alot more in Japan than walkman, this is Sonys attempt to make some profit indirectly from apple products. I believe the PHA-1 will have a price drop, this is the only way they can encourage people in Japan to buy it.

I posted photos of the Sony PHA-1 in the galleries, including photos of the PHA-1 with the popular Fostex HP-P1, for a size comparison.

Can you do a new headfi TV eposide on episode and cover the pha-1 and UE 900? Headfi TV is a great project, hope it comes back alive.
