I haven't downloaded due to unreliable Wi-Fi where I am ATM (South Africa).

Got it.  Bluetooth something.  No problems.

Is the ZX1 available at any US-based store for under $700 (shipped)? I am planning to get one for my dad as his first DAP.

He is not very good at using digital gadgets, but he has been using a Sony Android phone for over a year now.

 

It is $669 at this store:

I got my DX90 at eglobalcentral a while ago. No problem with the purchase and return but I prefer buying from a local store for faster shipping. His birthday is next week.

Thank you!

That roughly covnerts to somwhere around US700. That sound great, Hopefully if it is ever released here, me will own one soon :]

Partly warranty, also when you import there are sometimes surprise charges that can add up to a lot of money. This depends on the country of origin and the shipping company used.  I've had to pay brokerage fees of 50% of the value of the goods on stuff shipped from the USA to Canada.  It's just generally easier to buy in your own country if possible.

I would think it is most probably a warranty issue, it is not something that cheap nor expensive but significant enough for most to be more careful especially if one encounters problems with the product in question and there is no local support, that in itself turns off many potential buyers and when i scour the net for sets in japan, the price is more than what is retailing here locally and that is excluding taxes and shipping. Unless there is significant cost savings, else the risk is simply not worth it.

Thanks for the replies.

 

Generally, buying anything in Canada is more expensive.  Shipping costs are usually unreasonable and taxes push the price through the roof.

For us, ordering from Japan is often cheaper initially, shipping is actually faster than from within the country and often things slip by under the tax radar.

Warranty issues are another thing though...

 

As far as paying 50%..  I'm guessing that was with UPS??  Had that happen to me before, $150 item and I was hit with a $90 brokerage fee...

UPS sucks...  (for shipping to Canada from out of the country)

Is there an easy way to add album art? When I add files to my walkman from my computer, sometimes there is no art, so I go back, google image the album, throw it into the Walkman's picture folder, and then add it.  I guess I could add it directly using the walkman's wifi connection, but it's the same basic set of steps.  Is there something easier?

post #6069 of 6279

I think the album art needs to be embedded in the files. I used the Media Go software to manually add a few.

I have ordered it from eglobal (Hong Kong). Picked 3-5 days UPS express shipping.

I do not worry about the warranty and import taxes as my experience with them has been great so far. I just want it to arrive in-time as a birthday present.

 

I did contact them on livechat to make sure it is in-stock and can arrive by early next week.

By the way, are Sony domestic items (for Japanese market) still better built than the export models? I know this was the case 15 years ago.:etysmile:

^ I love eglobal, they seriously have good prices and their shipping is quick, took 3 days for me and I picked the cheapest option.

I was checking out the Chinese teaser site for the upcoming flagship Sony headphones and came across another teaser image for a new Walkman device:

 

 

The metal frame looks beefier than the ZX1, but the buttons are reminiscent of those found on the F800/ 880 series.
