Now that lithium batteries isn't a trouble in Japan, it's a no brainer.

 

I understood mostly everything from my Japanese/kanji(Chinese) skills for the most part, seems to be a killer player.  Going to have the wife read it over to confirm some things in the morning.  Thanks for the link!

 

 

 

 

 

10% commission fee!  :eek: 

I think I  will do it myself and use Tenso. ;)

Hmm December release for Japan... Hope this won't be a limited edition model, so that even if local Sony stores here don't carry this, I still can get one during my trip there next March-April...

When you put it like that it makes me fell better. I suppose I can't complain too much, I was expecting this thing to be upwards or close to $900+

Although the iceing on the cake would have been the inclusion off a micro SD slot. Next year the 128GB cards come out and now you magically have 250GB of goodness.

> microSD slot

> Sony

 

If there was an audio god, even he wouldn't be able to work miracles to that extent...

 

This is onboard flash (I presume from the size) so the indexing speeds seem promising already. Just want to drive home that point. Though not all NAND are equal.

Again, the page doesn't completely load for me, so if I read it wrong...

I don't think Sony walkman site (like most Japanese sites) accept international credit cards. you'd need a Japanese credit card or bank account usually to buy to get it to tenso. but yeah proxy wise I've used a bunch through the years and he's the cheapest overall. but yeah maybe Amazon or rakuten will have it later and then you can use international credit cards. I actually helped him start the service so I knew where he had to be to be competitive. going to have wife look this over for buying details....Probably will get bitched for wanting it hah.

Is this going to be avalaible worldwide? Sony Australia is an ass, they never reply to any emails. 

post #161 of 7503

I think its around 75,000 yen, if that's true, it's not as expensive as dx100 and hm901. 

Amplification seems to be a problem though, not much power output and I don't think you can stack it nicely since the back is not flat

Can't trasnlate from jp, which is the issue with the power output?

 

About the storage, I think 128 gb are fair enough and maybe it might be modded being a 2,5 ssd (I think).

Looking at the ZX1 makes me feel embarrassed for all of those hideous ugly DAPs that are on the market right now. I just bought the FiiO X3 and it looks like it is from the stone age! I wont even comment on the Colorfly, HiFiMAN or HiFiSound products! :)
