Portability wise its harder to store in the pockets or compartments with limited space.
Sure it sounds good but at the kind of price, I personally expect more than just sounding good. smily_headphones1.gif

They were on the right track with the 100 and 120.

Fingers crossed I haven't gone the wrong direction here, but instead of getting the ZX1, I bought a CEntrance HiFi M8 to go with my Galaxy Note 3...

 

Guess that at this point I'll bow out of this thread...

Go back to your root Duncan and get the ZX1!  ;)

Has anyone tried to connect ZX1 to a desktop DAC w/ USB input and got it to work?  I have a Cambridge Azur CDP with a built in USB dac, and cannot get the dac to recognize ZX1.  I am using the standard issue Sony adapter out of  the WM port and a USB cable.   I know people have been connecting the ZX1 to Centrance HiFiM8, so I thought this would be a cinch, but no....Is there a setting on the ZX1 that I have to fiddle with?  Maybe it is the dac that is the problem, but it typically has no problem recognizing external USB source, be it Mac or iDevices...

I just had a blast watching youtube hd music video with the zx1. Really happy with the sound quality from youtube.

Here is one of my all time favourite.

Re those connecting the ZX1 to the Hifi M8, this is probably a question that will get me shot - but, if using an app like UAPP, is there likely to be any perceivable sound / bit accuracy difference between the ZX1 and any equivalent 24/192 capable device (the Note 3 in my case)?

 

Seeing that UAPP uses its own stack I would assume not?

Nope I don't think that cable will work. Similarly, I tried using the WMC-NWH10 then Type A -> Type B into my Oppo BDP-105 and to my Resonessence Labs Invicta and no luck. I got my ZX1 working with some portable DACs though. Weird.

I'm wondering if anyone has paired the ZX1 with any of the small USB DACs like the Dragonfly or Island?

Are you sure you didn't try it when the ZX1 was on standby? That will turn the amp off. As soon as you turn on the screen or start playback the amp is powered and I get very obvious and noticeable hiss with my SE846. It requires a 75 ohm impedance adapter to get rid of that. This is with the white filters on the 846. It might be less of an issue with the darker ones.

Thanks.  I actually thought the whole point of WMC-NWH10 was actually to pair ZX1 with DACs other than PHA-2...
