    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    Actually the first EarMax came out in 1994. My AE version came out in 2004 to celebrate the 10th anniversary, it was produced in 75 samples, 25 each for Europe, America and Asia. I later sold it when i went balanced with a RudiStor quad mono amp that I had until I bought the Sony TA 6 years ago

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    Nope, I got my AE 17 years ago so I guess the first ones must be around 20 years old

    I don’t know but my guess would be that search works on the library so will only be able to find within the 50.000 tracks that the library knows about

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    That brings back memories. My first dedicated headphone rig was the Earmax AE with AudioTechnica L3000 about 15 years ago. Source was Jungson CD2 with Nordost Valhalla cables

    SONY IER-Z1R

    Nothing has been announced or even rumored but I would expect it to be several years down the line

    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    The Sony tips are to small for me, I use Final E or Sedna Crystal largest size and have no problem

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    These on eBay and I’m sure others make them , most likely som on AliExpress. But why not just use a simple 3.5 to 3.5 cable from the headphone out ?

    Sony Linkbuds S Impressions Thread

    The LinkBuds is considerable smaller than the XM4. Sound wise the XM4 has a much fuller sound with more pronounced bass while the LinkBuds is leaner/more neutral. I like both

    HiBy RS2: dual card slots, Darwin R2R, FIR, NOS, MQA 8x--news and impressions thread

    I suspect it has to do with the (as I understand it) fairly low powered/performance cpu used and perhaps size of ram

    The Continuation Of The Sony Walkman 1Z/1A Thread!

    That one can’t connect to the TA. I think what he wants is a cable with the special TA charging micro usb one end and usb-c the other end so you can connect a usb-c device to the side port of the TA

    HiBy RS2: dual card slots, Darwin R2R, FIR, NOS, MQA 8x--news and impressions thread

    I’ve got 3 Sony daps that I love but want to try an alternative approach abd the 2 card slots would be great as my library is too big to fit on one. I have mailed Hiby asking about the track limit to the library as I have around 90.000 tracks in my full library

    The Continuation Of The Sony Walkman 1Z/1A Thread!

    Either use the full Sony dock or there is a WMport to standard usb adaptor if you can find it (can’t remember the model name)

    SONY IER-Z1R

    Yes on the stock cable, but the discussion was about the majority of third party replacement cables using standard mmcx connectors where the cable connector dissapers down into the recessed socket on the Z1R
