Please someone post impressions with some basic IEMs and with 320Kbps files compared with any of the previous models of Sony (After X series will be better) and no amp.

I'll do that once I receive mine. I'll use the GR07 MK2, no amp, and some 320kbps files. Comparison will be with X, and F series.
Turok... I would be deliriously interested in your views on how the ZX1 compares with your Z1070 in RB-lossless, especially with older soul/rock albums.
I don't recall but they may have been 320 files so differences wouldn't be huge among competent devices. I think the Ipod/Iphone 5 series above average though not up to the best.
I will , just after uploading, and having early dinner.
"especially with older soul/rock albums " Do you have songs for me to try?
Rudi... I encountered problems downloading the Drivers for the PHA-2 from Sony-JPN ended up getting 'blue screen' reboot every 4hrs, I think it was because I never had the Windows 'Japanese Language' pack installed... in the PHA-2 thread fkrieger has put a direct link to Sony-Asia so Drivers can be downloaded without any problems, sorted my problems out completely, hth.
anything like The Dells, Delfonics, Wilson Picket, Sam & Dave, Harold Melvin, Chi-Lites etc. anything that's on Stax/Atlantic or Tamla lable recordings.
I want to know if the songs sound as lush as they do on WM-Z.
Mush overload... superb.
Nothing wrong with the UI. Just that sony has done a great job on the music player app with easy access to almost everything - Seach, Playlist, Song Info, visualiser, add album art, plus the physical buttons at the sides make it a pleasant to use. Coming from the days of DX100, DX50 with numerous firmware updates and comparing the AK120 and AK100 UIs, you will appreciate the ease and simplicity of the player. I also use iSyncr app to syn my iTunes playlist and so android platform does have its benefits.
The small margin was before I turned on ClearAudio+. Now I definitely prefer the ZX1. Using only lossess (Apples lossless on iphone and flac and Apples lossless on ZX1).
Can anyone tell me how to transfer playlists from itunes to the ZX1?? I am using mac only.
Download iSyncr for iTunes. wirelessly syn with your iTunes playlist and transfer the songs. works great.
Awesome. That's a lot of Sony :)
