    Sony MDR1-ABT Impressions

    You are right!  I meant to say that all the files I play are lossless, many are 24 bit, and 96k sample rate or higher.

    Sony MDR1-ABT Impressions

    I use only lossless files, many of which are 24bit or higher.  I don't want to listen to anything through headphones that isn't well recorded or mastered, so I don't have that stuff on my NW-ZX2.   Per the NW-ZX2's documentation, I have set it so that "The Bluetooth connection is made using...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    Still, if you see a really good price you should jump on it even if out of stock because Amazon will honor the price when it is again available http://amzn.to/1F4y5A7

    I have been using the NW-ZX2's LDAC to connect to the new MDR-1ABT headphones...sounds very good!

    2015 - Sony PHA - 1A Portable Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier

    I have had my Etymotic ER4s for 15 years and they are still making me very happy, especially as the rest of my equipment improves.  Just alone with the NW-ZX2 they are great.

    Amazon UK is now shipping (not merely taking orders for) the MDR-1ABT, which is not yet on sale from Amazon US (other than import models), at 299 pounds. (US price is $399)   http://amzn.to/1JnwwTV (Black) http://amzn.to/1JnwH1E (Silver)   My question is...do you think these will be...

    2015 - Sony PHA - 1A Portable Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier

    I would definitely get the PHA-1A.  It has pretty much the same dimensions as the iPod Classic and sounds great with it (I have this combination).  The PHA-1 is bigger, heavier, older, more expensive and doesn't sound any better.

    Correct.

    On the ZX-2, you choose which storage to mount, and that is what you see on your computer.  If you want to move things to the other storage, you change the settings on the unit first, then it shows up on your computer.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Try the Sony XBA-Z5.  People in its thread here on head-fi have expressed appreciation for it listening to EDM.  Me, I prefer ECM.

    2015 - Sony PHA - 1A Portable Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier

    I had a really nice listening session with the PHA-1A and my iPod Classic, using my NAD VISO HP50 headphones (wonderful headphones, by the way, and easy to drive)... I loved the sound.  As No Deal's photos indicate, the amp and the iPod are almost identical in height and width, so they make for...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    Agreed, if you never use the ZX2 as a standalone device it doesn't make a lotta sense.  I have been using the NW-ZX2 very happily as a standalone device some of the time, mostly when walking around outside, and using it with the PHA-3 for home listening with headphones with balanced cables.  ...

    This is not correct, at least it's not necessarily correct.  The PHA-3 may have a superior DAC to that in the NW-ZX2.  It certainly has a much better DAC than an iPhone.
