Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model - Page 318

post #4756 of 6045

I use WIMP Streaming because they make Streaming possible in HiFi Sound, so due to the Android 4.1 on the Sony, it will be no Problem to use this or any other Streaming providor, the only question left is ,can you download the Music for offline listening just like you can do with a Smartphone and or tablet?

--> is there a way to access files stored on a portable WiFi HD ?   Like iDevices can play their files stored on a  Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB hard drive ?


I am not sure about that as I have never tried. But as long as it works on other android devices, it should work with the ZX1.

Id hope that sony will make it a bit more then the standard 20-40k I mean for a flagship player with dedicated DAC they should really do good - and to be hnest so far i cant really complain from sony music equipment

 

Will be useful if someone provides a spectrum tho - I`d personally do it as soon as i get one but that will take like a month since its out of stock in the uk

Aquin,I'm very interested to hear your results: IF it works, then this solve the last big problem that we have with the ZX1.  

 

Of course, it will be interesting to also test if the whole library ( files IN the ZX1 and files on the Wifi HD) is seen as ONE library:  for example, can a playlist can includes files IN the ZX1 AND files on the Wifi HD

 

please keep us posted...

 

thanks in advance

The AK240 Comes also with WiFi, I did read, but cost more than 3 times as much as the Sony, so not a difficult choice in the end:-)

Someone mentioned an update for the ZX1. Where does this information come from and what is to expect from this update?

 

I would love some more informations on this, if anyone has them.

 

Thanks

The DX90 is not quite fully out yet, only two people has it and sounds like none have all the ones you mentionned at the same time.

I have a zx1 and an x5. I honestly struggle to tell them apart. The X5 has a more powerful amp, but that worries me not since the zx1 drives my iems with ease.

The X5 is obviously more feature rich, but i'm currently using the zx1 more because of Android and my Google Play All Access subcription.

Does anyone know if these cases can be ordered outside of Japan?

I've ordered the X5 and would like to try either the AK120 or ZX1, but I am concerned about the volume issue. I will be using sensitive iem's but I have lots of classical recordings that have very soft passages, I do listen in noisy areas, and I do like loud music. Is there any gain control option in the native sony app? Have you tried viper4android?How would you compare the sony volume to say an iPhone or galaxy? Sorry to fire off so many questions but any advice/impressions would be much appreciated.

How can you buy a highend mobile music device and attach a no Hifi sounding Mdr-1r to it?? The 1r is coloured i sound and does not sound like e.g. an Akg k701. I don't understand that. :-)
