I just read the whole thread.
Thanks for your trouble, appreciated.
Now I have something to look for.
No ugly, slow and buggy UI for me (DX50!!! and DX100).
Sony welcome back.
Hahah! I'm actually kinda thinking "welcome back to you!" since I've not "seen" you around in awhile. Back on topic though, I have to admit that in my 2nd trial run of the ZX1, there were times where I felt the UI was a little laggy (not responding to my clicks to switch off the DSP) whilst playing a 24/192 file. But not as slow as the DX100 so still quite acceptable.
I may need to re-review my previous comment of how it felt comparable to a Snapdragon 600 @ 1.7GHz, but more likely like a slightly slower CPU.
On a slightly sadder note, I've booked my holidays to Oz and it looks like I won't be back in time to collect my ZX1 when it's ready. The release date is targeted for around 5th Dec, however I'm only returning back on the 10th. No early impressions for the audience here unfortunately.

I've been following the tech conversation here in the past few days and even though I understand what's said however what's the practical impact of what I should listen out for? What sort of tonal changes should I be seeking? For impedance mismatching, at least I've heard bass roll offs, etc. but what about high/low current delivery to multiple BAs (or to other cans - I have multi DD Kaedes, DD SigDJs or M500's, and V-Modex/T50RP ortho-mods which I can use).
I've tried the ZX1 demo with 2xBA's (MH335DW and TG!334) aside from what I've shared my early impressions (of larger staging, not so central vocals, possibly not so resolving in micro-detail, etc.) I've not heard any tonal irregularities in my brief listening sessions.
@Mython, when you say "adequate" current delivery is needed, what are some of the symptoms of "inadequate" current to multi-BAs?
I'm in the position where I can possibly help enlighten some of the practical concerns since I can run to the shop to demo (when I have time) but if someone can guide me to let me know what they're looking for specifically that'll make my job easier.
