How is one supposed to describe the sound of a media player?
Quote:
And the ZX1 sounds great, delivering a refined performance with plenty of subtlety. Details and textures are layered and well organised on a wide-open soundstage.You get a high level of precision and agility, with excellent timing and punchy dynamics. Tonally the sound is well balanced, but the articulate yet hard-hitting bass deserves a special mention.

I can say this and it'll be pretty much true too.

I daresay if you hang in the thread a while all will be revealed, Anak's already teasing us.

Helps if you don't plagiarise the reviewers comments to suit your device, one wouldn't want to think the Author of the review was being lazy (yes I was gullible enough to check).

Hopefully within a couple of months they'll have a black version in the lineup.

Nahh...

 

A black coating / anodizing would only wear-through, especially on the 'hump' of the headphone jack.

Unless it has been answered already is the supplied documentation also in English or only Japanese?

From the screenshots, they seem to only be in Japanese

Hello guys. I'm new to Head Fi, and although I rarely post, I read a lot from the different forums. I have been following this thread, as well as the other one on the F886, as I've become a bit of a Walkman fan in the last few years (I had an old A816 for years, and I jumped to a Z1060 which I absolutely love). I'm not an audiophile -although I think I've already been stung by the audio bug!-, but I'm interested in learning, and I learn a lot from reading the discussions by people here who really know the stuff. 

 

Anyway, I was reading the preview in a link posted here above (post #1531), and it occurred to me that the reviewer may have given us a hint of a possible international launch of the ZX1. At some point, the reviewer seem to charge the DAP with having an identity problem of sorts, as if one "Go[es] into the settings, however, [one sees] the device thinks it’s called the ‘NWZ-ZX1’", despite its being called "NW-ZX1". If the OS, as adapted by Sony, includes the reference to the usual international Walkmans code (NWZ), couldn't that be a hint that Sony is preparing a wider international release? That fits nicely with early reports of an April 2014 launch in selected European countries. Well, there go my 50 cents.

 

Last, but not least, I'm interested in eventually getting a ZX1 (or an F887, if I can't stretch to the new star), and I also want to invest a little in nice IEMs (or cans, but probably IEMs). I listed to different kinds of music, but mostly hard rock/heavy metal/progressive rock and different related genres. Any ideas of what a good match might be, considering the kind of music I'd play most frequently?

 

Thank you so much!
