I've still got some TDK ferro chromes(?), still sealed... think I'll keep me eye out for a Nakamichi Dragon and ask Anak to source me a Sony Pro.... dream team.

Does NW-ZX1 support DSD format which Sony PHA-2 supports?

Ahh, memories!

 

Never had one (was only a teenager at the time), but used to drool over that deck in the glossy pages of Hi-Fi Choice magazine, during the late 80s / early 90s!

Hi Jeff , thank you and I will follow later on your suggestion

I just try what Jeff recommendation as follow :
Source : sony WM ZX1
Dac / Amp : Centrance Hi Fi M 8
Iem : sony XBA H 3
Cable : USB to USB A wire world ultra violet to hi Fi M
USB to DAC Sony to Sony WM ZX 1

Sound quality
High : more refine and better clarity , it is not harsh at all ,
Cymbals more natural and detail
Mid : more sweet and natural
Bass : better in detail and very clean bass sq , better impact as well
Separation : wth hi Fi M8 improve
Soundstage : more 3 D like you feel in big concert hall

Conculsion : so far excellent synergy between Sony WM ZX1 and Hi Fi M 8 use USB dac function

IMO

Picture will post later

When in doubt, trust the specs: http://www.sony.jp/walkman/products/NW-ZX1/spec.html

Yeah, AFAIK we don't really have any Android apps that could play DSF/DFF/DST at the moment and the stock player of ZX1 would not support DSD/DoP natively unless they update that in the future.

 

Light Harmonic might work with Android developers and make an app for that particular purpose but we didn't get any details yet. Hopefully eXtream (developers of UARP) or Onkyo could work on that as well.

I have question any one who has got USB WMC-NWH10.

When the cable is connected the vol is changed to "Master (External output)" or not?

Usually, when dock is connected the vol should change to digital out.

But for me doesn't.

(Like no input for DAC)

thanks Rudi0504, great stuff!

post #1889 of 5997

Its great news that ZX1 works with Centrance M8. I presume this can support up to 24/192.By  the same token, F887 should work with M8 too. good stuff

post #1890 of 5997

I've said this before, but please Sony:  release this in the U.S.  That will be the only way I buy.

 

Thanks to all for providing impressions.  I'm getting bored w/ my RWAK100 (after having it since early March, I think).  I used a Sony Walkman cassette player when I was kid, and a Sony Disc Man when I was in graduate school, so I feel like going "back to my roots" with my next DAP purchase.
