Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model - Page 356

post #5326 of 6283

Speaking of cases, I bought a couple for my F887 made by igadgetz. I have an extra one (unopened/unused) if anyone is interested...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Very well built, sturdy, and provides great protection with the padded corners...

From what I've researched, the sound should be the same. I'm sure others will chime in, but if you want to save money get the f886.

God this thing is a buggy piece of ****. Every time I plug it into the computer the launcher I bought disappears. Every few times I eject and unplug it, it freezes. The management of files and folders is abysmal, tagging is awful. I am just about ready to sell mine I have to say. My 10 year old iPod destroys the ZX1 in terms of file management and UI.

You should return it.  Your is defective.  My ZX10 only crashed on me twice and it is as polished as any iPod out there in term of interface.  Tagging is not the player fault as I never have problems with any of my tags.

iTunes+iMod is a million times better for tag editing. I've found no mac or PC based tagging app that fixes them. The play store app which is free now did work but it's a massive pain. The interface is is prettier but a lot more annoying IMO, but this is my first droid device.

If you tag your file properly during the ripping process then it should be no issue. The same file that you are having issues with the Sony will also have problems with other players as well. I think once you get used to the interface you will really enjoy the zx1.

Plain bad, isolated and subjective experience. Just as good as atipical data.

imo ZX1 is the most bug-free audiophilia DAP on the market.

If anyone uses Plex and PlexSync (plex.tv), it works great with the ZX1.

I've a 2013 and 2104 album sync setup on Plex and it syncs the flac unaltered to the ZX1.

Once synced, update the local music app on the ZX1 and it picks up all of the synced albums, including their tags and covers etc.

If you buy any albums and add to your album folder (mine is on a NAS), then Plex automatically syncs the new 2013/2104 albums to the ZX1.

Working well for me at the moment, so thought I'd share smily_headphones1.gif

@redrich2000-Did you buy your unit new or used? Definitely sounds like something is up. I can confirm the same issue with losing my launcher, sort of. I lose my icon packs and wallpaper once I plug into computer. I have to reload them in Nova, so not a big deal for me. My unit never freezes though. Maybe a master reset might help with your unit? Can't hurt.

Folder management is really easy, I use it on the computer. This being your first Android device, I can appreciate your frustration. I despised Android when I first started using it, but hopefully it grows on you. Now, you couldn't pay me to use an I device.

@audionewbi
 The MHd-Q7 seems to tone down the trebles a little which may be more pleasing to those who find the ZX1 too bright. However I also found the stage width narrowed down.



Personally for me, I prefer it straight out of the ZX1 especially with the FitEar MH335DW being quite a warm signature. If I had a brighter earphone, then the MHd-Q7 would be suitable in toning it down.

I picked up one of these in Singapore on Sunday. Manufacture date was 2014-04 and it was running the older software.. As soon as I connected it to WiFi it said that the update was available. No big deal..
