What are you upgrading from?

I tried it again today with FLACs and it does indeed work. It did not work with iTunes AAC for me. I'll have to do some more testing. Maybe syncing with Media Go makes a difference, or I could convert the m4a files to a different container format.

 

OTOH, dbPoweramp AACs are not properly gapless on my iPod even though they are in iTunes. If I convert to ALAC in dbPoweramp and then to AAC in iTunes, it does work. This stuff just worked with LPs and CDs, and then MP3 came along and ruined it. :angry_face:

Does anyone know to what extent models like the ZX1 and F886/7 are crippled in terms of output power in Europe.

 

I can see on the F886 that AVLS (volume limiting) can be switched off, but is the volume level still inhibited even then compared to its Japanese/American model counterparts?

Could someone confirm this is the case with ATRAC files too? it's rather important to me, cheers.

Not sure if this has been posed already but saw this, with the UK update and further review soon:

Atrac is lossless... so is WAV & Flac.

 

this is exactly the same as other Walkman's - Z1060/70, F806/7 & F886/7

the F887 is a Japan only release... best to ask Vect in the F886-thread about the Euro version.

 

the ZX1 might not be capped according to some because it does not come supplied with headphones... I'm prepared (probably as will Fortis) to meet up with someone who has a Sony-Europe ZX1 version to compare... I wouldn't bother phoning Sony-UK, they'll only say it's 'capped' as they won't know.

 

AVLS has nothing to do with the Euro-Cap... it's implemented separately.

I think this question has been asked before although does the Sony allow folder view of music when searching?

avls is a limit you can activate on your own accord that is much lower than the european limit. and from what I've seen the only volume regulation on the 886 is some silly beep+warning when you want to go above a set volume. and also something like you have to overide it again everytime you reboot.

Guys, can we connect ZX1 to Chord Hugo?

 

These are the input option of Hugo, maybe someone can enlighten me:

 

Inputs
• Optical TOSLink 24-bit/192kHz-capable
• RCA coaxial input 24-bit/384kHz-capable
• Driverless USB input 16-bit/48kHz-capable (designed for tablets/phones)
• HD USB input 32-bit/384KHz and DSD128-capable (for computer/laptop playback; requires driver installation on Windows, others TBC)

Of course you can, if a unit has so much options to connect you always find a way. The best way would be to connect it through usb. I think it would work...

Sony NWZ-ZX1 will be released at the end of february in germany 699,- €.

ZX1 has USB audio out I think (rudi connected it to Centrance M8) but the battery life is extremely low in that playback mode.

 

I was thinking maybe with that famous cable can do the trick (the one that works with PHA 2, what was the name?).
