Very interresting to finally have a flagship android device coming up for audiophiles, now Sony is really annoying not publishing full specs for their gear, what's the output impedance on this one (need a <1ohm for the Pandora VI and SE846), anyone has Sony connection or info? Thanks!
yeah.... quite a few have sold their much vaulted AK's in favour of the ZX1... best to ask in the AK thread's.
Yeah I think I did, Rudi has quite an arsenal of electronic devices, wish I could rack them up like he does.
Is this your first time? If you say yes, be ready for some soldering fun, those connectors are a ball to solder. The connections are so close they can feel the static from each other.
Please show us your creation once you are done.
Question: Do you have the internet link to the wire you just purchased?
Sorry this is a little bit of a DIY post of my WM-port LOD. Finally found an evening to myself with no kid touching soldering irons.
To answer @musicheaven's question first...the wire I purchased was this :-
I thought the resistors would be the hard one to solder on but actually it was the wire. Stripping it was a little difficult but most of all it was easy to break (single core) and I broke the cables twice (R channel first at the beginning at the WM-port, which was ok, and 2nd was the Left channel at the WM-port -after- I had soldered on both ends, shrink wrapped everything, etc.....imagine the pain to have to open up everything again just to fix that up).
To buy this completed dock cable at e-earphone (without the Furutech FT-735 Rhodium plug) is Y15,000. In terms of parts to build this myself including the Furutech FT-735 Rhodium plug was approx Y8000, so I'm pleased :D.
And thank goodness it works :-
