First impressions are that there are no real differences with the F887... I've uploaded one Album onto the ZX1 and compared same one to F887, the ZX1 sounds just like F887 before firmware update which I'm hoping will come through at some point (is there one?, as it's not showing)... there doesn't appear to be twin volume pots(?) which is nice, love the style of the ZX1 it exceeds my expectations on that score.

btw... the case is crap, I would put on the screen-protector before using the ZX1, those little fasteners could scratch the screen when putting in.

I have to disagree here,
The only thing no good about the case is you have no button access, otherwise its very well made

I didn't say it wasn't well made it's just a disappointment... it's nowhere near the class of the Sony WM-Z case that's for sure.

you have a good point, the WM-Z case cost roughly £50 delivered.

I want share my experience WM ZX 1 pair with HPA 2 use hi res USB cable stock

The connection after you turn on the HPA 2 , sometimes is not properly lock it to WM ZX 1

Please don't turn and off so often , it is still can not look it

The way to lock it like follow :

You must turn off your WM ZX1 and turn on again

After that

Turn your PHA 2 on

Enjoy your music

The volume on the ZX1 is about 70% of the Z-1070.

 

I still find the Z to be a wonderful DAP.

 

The warm and Bassy sound of the Z is really good.

 

I did some AB between the two, and it still holds its place, as my favorite DAP for rock.

 

The ZX1 is much faster and better in UI.

 

Whoever have the Z and loves its sound should not sell it before trying the ZX1.

 

P.S: I am thinking to sell my ZX1.

thanks, I am gonna to see the X5 thread for more details.
as for DX50, The volume issue definitely existed in Fw1.2.2. I tried to upgrade to 1.2.5,the volume problem seems to be fixed , but there comes like ten new bugs . for example, this little monster now just reboot every five minutes or so. I have to turn it down mannully. It also frequently stop my track and freeze for no reason...... As not many folks in Head-Fi report these problems, I start to suspect that mine is defective. already contacted iBasso, waiting for their reply.
