I found a few (Van Nuy?) at Amazon.jp but the lead times are quite long.
Do let me know if u decided to go for the custom made one, i may like to jump on one if its well made. smily_headphones1.gif

 

it's not a messenger bag as such, I'll go for the small Black vertical one (6.5x7.5ins).... I don't trust the bands for outside use.

 

I hoping Tuff-Luv release a case, I may email them & ask what the score is... otherwise I may take a hit for the team, I'll let you know on that in a week.

Thanks a lot. None are perfect IMO but the first Van Nuys seems nice as you can access the buttons without fully taking it out.

The Cruzerlite looks good although I have bad experiences with tpu cases leaving marks on the device after a long time.

So far the Van Nuys provide more complete protection with the PHA-2 combo.

Nice find Bauer!! Sadly black's all gone. I don't mind giving the Cruzerlite a try but will wait till the black returns.

They don't ship internationally but black ones were still available when I was just adding ブラック to the cart for testing purpose

So I should be called Uncle Jack now, LOL

The Cruzerlite looks good, but I am thinking such a delicate DAP needs more protection. How is the Van Nuys working for you Anak? You have one right?

Just wondering, do you think it is possible to have one of the custom cable manufacturers to make WM-to-SR71B balanced cable?  Actually, the analog out from the WM port is probably not balanced to begin with, so maybe I am talking nonsense to begin with?  I guess one can always feed the digital signal out of the WM port directly to a dac/amp like Centrance....Too clunky, though...Any thoughts?

Won't a right out case destroys the clean premium look that Sony is going for it? Unless the "leather" back doesn't hold up well, I don't see a reason for it.

is there a WM-Port/Mini-USB available that you can use with a DAC?

 

 

On a separate note regarding cases...

 

Tuff-Luv have just released a case for the F886/7, it's pretty dapper imo, link:

I have been informed that a ZX1 case is in the pipeline... :bigsmile_face:

I don't think there is an elegant short cable solution, but you can use a mini usb cable with WMC-NWH10 cable shown in the photo below.

That's good news.  Tuff-Luv cases are very well design and are more durable than other ones I've tried.

I've got one of those cables... I was hoping someone might of sourced a WM-port/mini-USB one.

I like their cases as well, hopefully they'll do a similar brown-leather one (as shown) for the ZX1

Yes however it's more like a pouch. And with the one that came from Sony, it's like a pouch within a pouch. I've dropped the ZX1 before in the Vannuys pouch and it protects the ZX1 well. But the concern is when I yank it out to access the touch screen naturally. Which is why I bought the little finger ring strap so that when I yank out the ZX1, little chance of it falling off. Actually I think with this case, I may not be able to use the little finger ring strap anymore.

Straps are great things that the Japanese kept for a good reason. Cases are ok but doesn't really prevent the accidents in the first place, only lessens the damage when it occurs (unless it is silly slippery without the case).

 

Shame that they are very hard to get in the west without importing. =/
