Yes but apparently not any DAC. Android version used still has limitations I guess.

Plug in your zx1 and get ready to dance... I jump up of my couch at 1.08min and rock harder than David.. biggrin.gif

Yes I can hear it very clearly.. I am using 1p2 iem. Nice music, I feel like I'm in disco club.

Thanks! Reason why I ask is that on the TG334, it sounds subdued compared to my desktop setup which seems more present with a longer decay. 

When I amp it with PHA-2, the pulses are clearer but still lack the punch im looking for.

I have the modded AK100 and totally agree with your assessment.  The ZX1 has noticeably better musical definitions.  Music sounds clearer and cleaner compared to my Messo Soprano AK100.  Bass notes are rendered with more authority with better low level details.  What's your take on the 901 vs. ZX1 JP?  Thanks in advance!

How have people removed the 'Hi Res Audio' sticker on the front in order to apply the screen protector?

Also best tips for an excellent job.

Yes easy to remove.
Tips, do it fast before any dust settles on the glass.
Its hard to remove the protector once its on.

Thx.  I bet it works with the new Sony DAC/Amps, in which case Sony won't be too motivated to tinker with the OS...Sad...

The ZX1 has a colder sound signature and top clarity, so with warm iems such as 335, 846 or even SE5, the sound is clearer than with the 901. However the 901 balanced card has more power and authority, and is more versatile as it sounds better with cold / bright iems such as Kaede, 1plus2 or NT6. Of course in terms of design, UI and battery, the ZX1 kills it.

You live in the Midwest? May I ask how you received the zx1?

On average, how long will Sony torture the US people interested in this DAP before releasing it here?

I simply bought through PriceJapan. Super easy and reliable site.

Question to those of you,

 

How is the audio quality via bluetooth?

 

I have an $800 pioneer dash that has bluetooth that I used with my Blackberry for streaming and now an iPod touch. Blackberry had great audio quality while the iPod touch I can definitely tell is a few steps down.

 

I was hoping this Sony Walkman was going to be awesome outputting tunes, even with bluetooth.

 

I'm willing to spend extra for it and will sell off my iPod.

 

Only have 256vbr or 320cbr and as many FLAC as I could get a hold of. There is a huge difference in audio quality between my old Blackberry and my iPod touch which is surprising since the touch was designed to be a music player while the music is just an extra for my now dead blackberry.

Sorry if this is OT, but any news on the rest of their 2014 Walkman line up? I like that they're starting with the flagship, but news on their more plebeian models would be nice. I heard some might have expandable storage so they now have my attention.
