post #286 of 6129
@ Punk

I come from a walkman a86x and z10xx a i recommend DX50 or F80X?

I like sound of walkman z1060. Between DX50 or F807 ibasso which gives sound more like the Z1060

just to speak positive for Sony:

As you should know they are NOT always GREEDY but they are sometimes BRAVE enough to do the first step in a new market even if they have to bring money and make losses just to show that they really care about quality and setting a standard.

Just look back at the forst4 Playstation 3 or - to stay in the audio department - the Sony SCD-1. A tank like built machine with awesome sound and mechanical quality!

So, let's stay optimistic and await the Sony ZX1 with a warm welcome - like I will do. :-)

Have a nice evening

The DAC must be Wolfsen since the Sabre one will require much power and shorter playback time.Maybe WM8741?

For those not wanting a pure music player.. Even less people would buy it... So since this new player will apparently cost $750, how much are you willing to pay for your special run, no android, no frills player? $5,000? How many people would buy that? Doesn't make business sense for Sony... Which is already in financial trouble... Better to have and Android player which you can use purely for audio if you so wish.

 

On another topic: would the new audio specifications ("better than CD quality") imply we would have to buy music in a higher spec format to get the most out of it?

 

And on another topic: this would imply high end headphones de rigueur... Would it be able to drive them without an additional portable amp?

There's no third party DAC chip.

 

S-Master is a special variant of pulse-width modulation (the DSP technique used in Class D amps), where the digital signal is converted to analog and drives the earphones simultaneously. Read about S-Master here, or read about PWM D/A conversion via a TI document here.

 

This kind of implementation requires a custom IC by Sony, so there won't be anything from Wolfson, ESS, Analog Devices, TI Burr-Brown, Cirrus Logic, Asahi Kasei, or any other company associated with making high-end audio DACs.

Will the new SW-S786 32gb Walkman have English as a setting in the menu?

The 32GB S-series. Now they just need to bring it to the USA.

Have Sony ever produced a walkman, in the past 5-10 years that lacks English as an OS option?

 

Even their Japan-only models invariably seem to include an English option...

post #297 of 6129

Actually, all their non-Android Walkman models released in Japan DON'T include English as an option in the settings. That's why I asked,...as your answer is incorrect. I'd own a 32gb Japanese S Series Walkman if it were so.

 

I'm asking someone who may have read the Japanese release notes/specs to answer my question. Thank you to whomever can answer me,...

Thankyou for answering my question. I was not aware of that.

Excuse me, but will this be another propriety connector that we'll be forced to use on the ZX1?

Search is your friend. Been asked and answered numerous times.

 

The answer is YES - there are models with NO English. The NW-Axxx series in Japan had no English menu. Basically, anything that is NOT Android based and NW- will be Japanese only. NWZ are the models for the rest of the world and have English.
