I have the zx1 and the pha-2. Is there any way to transport native dsd from zx1 to pha-2 ? The zx1 doesn't support usb audio player pro.

Still android 4.1.1.

Hi all,

Trying to find a portable amplifier that pairs up nicely with my ZX1. Obviously the sound quality is key. However, I would also like something in keeping style wise (silver). I have an AK100 which is used for truly portable use, so the ZX1 plus amplifier will be used around the house only.

I am considering the Just Audio AHA-100. This is a £350 amp, so feels a sensible option based on the ZX1 performance level. That would be maximum budget though.

Ideally, I would love to see a picture of someones ZX1 based rig to see how it looks aesthetically. Cannot find anything in the portable pics forum, aside from Rudi's Chord Hugo!

A don't wish to bypass the ZX1 dac, so looking at amplifier only, hence not looking at the PHA-1 etc.

I only use headphones (no earphones), along the lines of Sennheiser Aluminiums, Denon AHD600's, so nothing too difficult to drive.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Hopefully, someone else has paired up with an amplifier and found a match.

Paul

Hi All,

 

I read this in a Taiwan forum, if you disable "Sound Enhancement" in your app setting, output power increase.

 

I haven't try yet, Just for your information.

Anyone found a source for a neat shorter connector cable to run between a ZX1 Walkman connector and PHA2 Walkman input ?

are you talking line-out or USB?

I'm holding out hope that one day they'll take it up to Android 4.2 as a minimum. Then I'll have screen mirroring!

anyone else noticing a slight improvement in sound... the slight problem I had with some older recordings seems to be rectified namely the lower mids & upper bass, there's more space between the instruments... the delivery seems slightly better focused & airier... this is with the  F887, I don't have my ZX1 its gone on holiday again, this time to the USA. :confused_face:

Thanks bmichels. Great photos.
I think it looks excellent (tu-05) but would cost more than I can justify or budget for, despite no doubt sounding top class.
Looking for something cheaper. Would love a ALO Continental, but UK sourcing difficult. Ideally something sized similar to ZX1.
Just Audio is British, so probable purchase. A bit too big really for my headphones needs. Just wanted to see if anything else I had not contemplated.
Thanks again.

Hi, I've been looking at getting a tube amp (possibly LD mkiii) and was wondering what the best way to connect the zx1 might be? Does it go through usb or wm port? Any suggestions for which cable to get?

Thanks in advance and apologies if this question as been posed already (did a search and hit 325 posts so gave up!)

I notice the same thing on my ZX1.  Mid-bass is now less pronounced and the the bass notes seem to extend deeper.  The presentation is now more refined with slightly deeper soundstage.  I'm glad that Sony did address the two slight shortcoming in the headphone output department.

I apologize if this has been asked before but does anyone know when the ZX1 will be released in the U.S.?
