Kudos to Sony - I know this discussion has been had in this thread before and it's relative but from my end, the ZX1 is brilliant value for money. And the fact that my relatively untrained ears can hear strong - and improved - differences with the F800 series is a testimony of the good work Sony has done.
Listening to a high resolution FLAC ripped from the Dark Side of the Moon SACD and it's... you know... very pleasurable.
Now for the PHA2... Apparently it's been delivered to my place today!!!!
yaar,u are missing the point here.
if we want to say its a value then u need to compare this to dx 50 and fiio x3 atleast.
sony one costs 750$ but comes with way way more features than dx 50 and x3 so the price and feature ratio balances out wrt to x3 and dx 50.
i won't say comparisons with a bit cheaper colorfly c4 as that thing can do nothing but play music so an unfair comparison.
but needless to say i am thrilled that sony zx1 has made ppl happy!!
