Ummm.....so, what exactly is the purpose of this case again....:confused:

 

Better to use the stock case.

 

Looks nice and everything, but after a couple of months you'll notice slight thin cracks on the edges.

The stock case is crap as you cannot access the screen. The Dignis case looks nice, but I still prefer the Cruzerlite case I got...not as pretty but protects more and is scratch proof and more compact.

I may settle for the Cruzerlite as well if I don't find something else similar but with a belt clip. At least it offers the most protection, like you said.

Sony UK customer-service are absolutely useless at product info, you're better off asking here.

 

Interesting, thanks for the link. Does that give you the same support as the first year from Sony, or an elevated level like applecare?

 

Do you have the PHA-2 covered as well?

 

Contemplating pricejapan again if its only £24 to get the missing warranty.

 

True about the product info, but you'd expect them to know when its coming in stock :D 

 

Edit: Bah, cant get a quote ..'Period of Cover is required.' tried 3 browsers and PoC is not showing on the screen :confused_face(1):

As a plus, if you use the SBH-52 you can also see the track tittle and album on the small screen. The only downsize of this is that volume cannot be changed through the headset volume buttons, just through the physical buttons of the device, (but in all ohonestly, I don't have a need to continuously change volume on each song)

 

Did anyone get this to work with the older Sony MW1? I tried it with the stock media player and with PowerAmp but in both cases I don't get audio on the ZX1 while using the MW1, even if I explicitly switch to "Headphones" in the "Route Audio" menu. I also don't get any text on the display, it always says "No info". I installed Smart Connect and the MW1 software und updated the MW1's firmware to the latest version.

MediaAudio is a program apart from PowerAMP

I agree with you. Had that happened with my z1070 when my PDair case failed to do it's job when my dap met the floor. The stock case already saved the day for myzx1.

1). I just phoned, as long as it's a current model from Sony they're ok about it, my Z1070 was insured by them that was a Japan only market model (you have to ask for special models)... no idea about Applecare, is that some kind of mouthwash?

 

2). not yet as I'm considering selling it & the F887 and getting a Hugo.

 

3). Price-Japan are great to deal with, no qualms here.

 

4). Sony-UK are abysmal with any product info.

 

5). best to phone and get the Insurer to send you a quote... worked for me, hth.

Cowon, Calyx, A&K, iBasso, FiiO & Philips have all got new DAP's out (or in the mill).... I really don't see many being better than ZX1, maybe a different SQ etc. but that'll be about it.

 

I'm more interested in the next Sony... DSD, Micro-USB out, SD-Card as rumoured by What Hi-Fi.
