Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion) - Page 77

post #1141 of 1970

I have a white 64GB version and tried the update... Seems like a few here I am getting the error code 11... but then reading through the thread, it seems there's little to be missed other than the playlist on the go - which I don't use. So I'll give the update a miss...

 

My doctor will be proud... I am normally such a custom ROM addict... But then again, Android has come a long way since the time a new rom meant massive performance improvements! I am in remission!

Since i have my player in the 30 days experience,that closes on 15 december i will return it to sony to exchange for another one with the old firmware. The sound after update is worst than with the old firmware, i don't need playlist neither dlna and the changes in sound enhancements don't convinced me. I contact Sony Portugal and they don't know if Sony will gonna make another firmware update to solve the problems with this one. I'm very disappointed that Sony makes un update that for some players don't work and for others work but with errors.

I noticed that the update is different from country to country (even in europe) exe file has different names and different sizes (Mb). So i wondering if the update i made was the right one as i made it by the player itself and not by a file downloaded in PC and then made the update with the player connected to my PC.

Now i decide that i will not made the update  in my replacement player, until Sony decide to make updates that can be rolled back just in case i don't like it or it just make a malfunction on the player.

 

I beg pardon for my bad English but i think that all of you understood what i want to say

 

A Merry Christmas for you all and a Happy New Year

The program should  automatically detect your region, and in case you downloaded the wrong version, it will not install, as I tried all update versions, and only the Japanese worked (or at least tried to install).

Hi

 

I assume that you have done the update, so tell me did you try to listen to a whole cd in flac format? When i listen a flac cd when i forforwar ou rewind track it has more or less 7 seconds intil track sound appear. Have your player frezzes for sometimes, have you ever receive this message in the stock media player for audio  " error   the application will quit because an error occurred." Well i experienced all this issue after the update and before it never happens.

This player has less bass and with the update even less. I preffere the original sound that one before the update.

Merry Christmas

i believed my version same with Croqui,

after updated
~audio error and quite on stock application
~bass is really "lacking"

not listen to Flac yet, so no sure abt the seconds freezes matter.
updated have better setting interface but i still cannot switch on "surround sound" feature.

I am talking about my unit, i encounter distorded sound on some tracks on treble and bass, and  "thin" feeling  vocal sound,by both sennheiser IE8 and Sony MDR-1R(320kbps mp3 original converted), IE8 suffer more compare 1R.

From other reviews that they are not lacking bass and some cannot update etc shown that might be alot F versions and differ in SQ i suspected.

good day

I have noticed that the hiss and lack bass have been removed to disable clear pass mode, can anyone confirm that?

post #1151 of 1970

Definitely completely alters Clear Pass Music. Detailed analysis and you will realize that this is the cause of this decrease in performance

You're talking about the shell or a case? They are selling cases for sure but shell, I highly doubt it.

Communicated through a chat with Sony tech support and they recommend - when the player is turned ON to clamp reset button on the back of the player. Waiting for reboot and try.
After this, a period of 3 hours, the error with the player and switch tracks not noticed
