I use the USB DAC cable Sony WMC NWH 10 from WM ZX 1 and I use USB male to micro USB , I connect to PHA 2 on the right site for PC USB DAC

I already switch to PC USB DAC

The result NO sound come out from PHA 2 hp out , sound come out from WM ZX 1 speaker



At PHA 2 from left to right :

Mini USB for hi res Walkman
USB for I Devise
Micro USB for USB DAC / PC

Any settings you alter under the volume or internal sound settings wont affect the sound coming out via digital out/usb.

That's exactly what I am thinking, and by convention this should be the case.

Thanks for your trial.

That means depend on USB DAC that support or not?

Can you unplug USB male to micro USB and push vol button?

post #2090 of 7455

When I try with WM dock to mini.

I can not use vol function the volume has changed to "External output"

But for USB cable it not same.

I don't have a ZX1 but if I not mistaken the iPhone operates exactly as what you are describing when I plug the Lighning connector to the phone lightning connector out. The dap relegates the sound control to the connected device at the other end so you don't have control from the player anymore. I would assume Sony does the same thing with their output connector. So basically that is normal. I am not sure what the ZX1 output is capable of i.e. Fixed Analog LO and/or fixed digital out but at that stage no volume control is needed. The other plugged device should provide you with volume control to your hp out.

Rudi is showing how to get USB DAC connectivity via the USB female to WM-Port cable.
But using another USB DAC than the PHA-2, surely?! The PHA-2 won't work as a USB DAC with the ZX1 via that link AFAIUI.

Thanks for sharing,

In my memory, I used to use ipod/iphone digital out with USB DAC.

The volume can not be used.

I want share my experience with sony WM ZX 1 and sony dac amp PHA 2 as follow

WM ZX 1 works as USB DAC with :

Centrance Hi Fi M 8
Theorem use 3rd party app USB AUDIO RECORDER

Note : if connect your Sony WM ZX 1 via USB DAC to Centrance Hi Fi M 8 doesn't works
Please turn OFF your Sony WM ZX 1 and turn ON again , it will works


WM ZX 1 doesn't works as USB DAC with :

Sony dac amp PHA 2

I tried with optional Sony USB DAC WMC NWH 10 with stock sony male USB to micro USB
The result is the sane NO SOUND


Sony WM ZX 1 pair with sony PHA 2 only use Sony hi res cable


Use USB DAC WMC NWH 10 can NOT charge WM ZX 1 , I can charge with Sony stock USB to sony connector

I hope this can help

I still have my Z, and many ask me why do I still have it.

 

Well I like how it sounds, and got enough power to drive my DT770 LE like a dream.

 

The Zx1 can drive it , and do sound nice but more power and Bass are needed to make it shine, this is where the Z comes.

 

The X5 compared to the ZX1 is a wreck, but it might sound better and it might have stable bug free UI, but still only limited to 128GB , as there is no microSD cards higher than 64GB (if you find one with bigger capacity ts a fake)

Notice: 

These are not full 128GB MicroSD card, they are actual 8GB capacity.But they show 128GB in phones and computers.if you are not professional, you will not find that it is !
 

Note: pls know more about this item and  look carefully on the discription  . if you Unprofessional and never buy this item, pls no to order before contact me.

I would always expect Sony to have a great UI. X5 is a bit fugly in pictures but if it works well, I won't mind.
