WOW, The DX100 only lasted 6 hours max!!!

Oh please please comment on the comparison between Dx100 and Zx1. That's the last thing I want to know before I pull the trigger...
Thanks.

The DX100 was gone long ago.

 

What I can tell you I will never ever  go to the DX100 when I have the ZX1.

 

Bad recordings are not welcomed with the ZX1 !!!! its so revealing.

 

If you want to drive big cans for six hours , get the DX100. (My ZX1 lasted for 23.5 Hours while playing FLAC (mixed rates from 192 to 44.1), so mp3 might give you at least 30-35 Hours)

 

If you want to enjoy music with almost all IEMs and some  big cans , get the ZX1, and that is not talking about the slow , sluggish interface of the DX100.

 

All I can say, is that the ZX1 is made to play music, works out of the box, fast smooth.

Instead of wasting your time reading threads to find a fix for your bug/problem or emailing the manufacturer, the ZX1 just works.

You either love it or not. 

 

I do not like to hype about stuff, esp. my stuff. If it is good I say its good.

 

Yesterday I spent the whole day out with my girl (I love her so much) and she confirmed that she never thought that such music can come from a relatively small DAP (DX100, DX50, Sony Z), and not forgetting it looked so "CUTE" and "Blinky":wink:.

 

Thank you Sony.

 

P.S: I marked the hardware buttons with a marker on the case  and it is working, until we get our hands on a good "Usable case".

 

Update: with my JH16, I can hear something (when not playing) , not hiss but very very low faint noise (my ears are so sensitive)

Your impression the ZX1 is very sugar coated Turok!  Gears sound better when you are in love & happy.  :D

Thank you very much!
I am currently using a DX50 and am actually quite satisfied with its SQ pairing with my w4r. BUT, its system is just a joke, and is not even funny. Some bugs like "volume suddenly jumps from 1XX to 200+ " are literally dangerous for both my eras and my iem. So I have to find another DAP. I almost get a DX100 for $550. Now, with your comments, I am so glad that I didn't. Now, Price Japan, come on...

If you can wait for the Fiio X5, just in case, as its only weeks from released.

Also in-case you ordered the ZX1, you still need to wait for about 20-25 days till the second batch.

Sound advice, mind you his problem he's running an old firmware version which used to have this problem but you are right with the news of new daps coming on the market that is a very sound advice.

Thanks for your review of zx1. i have some questions about the zx1/f111 comboo.

Although they have a wonderful resolution,liquid midrange. The treble is dark, not clear.  When i listen to some capella, i will feel very veiled.

How can i solve the problem? Could they be more brightly after 100 hours run?
