    The Sony 40th Anniversary Walkman Thread

    I've been burned by Sony before (z1060 sounds great, everything else has always worked terribly) but this one might be just the ticket for my very specific needs: keep my Blackberry Passport as my main phone (I know, I know), use the walkman for music, Uber, Whatsapp and maps (and that's it)...

    NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!!

    Well it's understandable if eventually they stop supporting devices, but it never really worked from new! I had higher expectations with Android ICS, never happened.

    NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!!

    I still enjoy my 1060 for music on the device with an xba-4, ath-ckr and particularly with Meze 99 Classics; nothing else on this device has really ever worked well, I get all sorts notices for android apps and system components crashing or not responding, anything that relies on the Internet is...

    Some find-outs for pc-fi data transfer method

    I had the same epiphany when I went from PC (Mac) audio to a receiver via SPDIF, it was like someone unplugged wax from my ears. I then went with an external DAC (Meridian Explorer) to... An old analog NAD receiver and small Q Acoustics 2020i, for a small room... How the !!! can it sound so...

    Pioneer's first DAP, the XDP-100R announced in IFA

    Yup, totally subjective, but if most / a lot of people hear a difference, there's something to it. I can't tell you how different my phones sound from my z1060, but there is clearly a difference.

    Pioneer's first DAP, the XDP-100R announced in IFA

    I'm interested in this DAP, perhaps we can solve the question about which components it uses beyond the brand's apps... If you have it, can you tell the difference between this DAP with a non MQA streaming app like the BBC's iPlayer with 6 Music, or does it sound like a phone? I have an old...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

      Cool! Get her an audioquest dragonfly red so you see "girlfriend with mind blown"; went for a meridian explorer myself, but it's not mobile phone friendly.

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

      Perfect mids, no sibilance on my silver 99s... Might want to check your source, although mine sound very nice from almost anything, awesome from better sources.   e.g, Primal Scream flac + nwz-z0160 + Meze 99 = bliss.

    How the Sony Icd-Sx2000 blew my mind. (A 'sort of' review and hopefully discussion thread)

    Cool, enjoy! I think the NW-a25 walkman also has "S-Master HX", I wonder how they compare.

    Is thereally a reason to have multiple portable daps?

    I am ashamed to say I have four... Ashamed because I am very utilitarian, I buy things to use them, not to oggle at them. I had a Sony minidisc which worked for about 2 months... Swore off Sony until years later I came across a sexy NW-E507... Nice sound, awesome looks... Moved to Macs, with...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

      Agreed, online posts can be very useful, but they can only point the way.   @ apaar123: I can only say my progression: With a decent source (320 kbps MP3 minimum, mostly Flac), with a decent player (Sony NWZ-Z1060, good for audio, crap for anything else even if it's an android player) I...

      I don't see someone who doesn't care about sound quality paying $300...
