    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    New products to be announced on 6th August, seems bizzare to do that before IFA. Probably not a walkman. Perhaps just the new WH-1000XM4 https://thewalkmanblog.blogspot.com/2020/07/sony-japan-finally-teases-wh-1000xm4.html?m=1

    Official Sony WF-1000XM3 Thread - Noise Cancelling True Wireless Earphones

    Hi I'm new owner of the WF-1000XM3's and loving their cable free usability and NC for working from home. Obviously not as good SQ as my XBA-H3's but very satisfying none the less. Was surprised to find out there's no LDAC or Apt X support - apparently sucks battery life. One thing i have...

    Sony XBA-H1 and XBA-H3 Hybrid Dynamic and BA IEM

    For those of us that still rock the H3's I just bought some new Hybrid ear tips in the UK. I love the Large ones that came with the earphones, but a few years on they don't seal in the ear as they used to. I have previously bought comply tips but they go manky fairly quickly as absorb ear wax...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    Yes wi-fi eats the battery on our units, even on standby. I always have aeroplane mode on and sometimes use a battery monitor which disables all non essential apps. I still feel my original battery is performing very well 6 years on.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Perhaps.. but there was a big purge of the hi-res audio kit from Sony UK in 2018, raising hopes of a successor. Two years down the line, still nothing whilst no stock of 1A or 1Z units. Either they are stopping this line or there is/was something in the pipileline. Obvious supply lines being...

    Sony MZ-EH1 *Gallery* - Mr. Minidisc

    Love the photos of your EH1 !! looks mint. I have been into Minidisc since attending Live '94 at Earls Court in London and seeing the MZ-E2. Had an MZ-R3 in 1996, then it was replaced by MZ-R50 in 1998. Got my MDS-JB920 later. Then mid 00's bought an MZ-NH1 and MZ-RH1 IN 2006! This month I'm...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    I've never noticed hissing on my Japanese unit. In fact I find it ultra clean noisewise. When the WIFI is turned on (rarely) I can hear faint electrical noise, but barely noticeable.

    The Sony 40th Anniversary Walkman Thread

    I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on the SQ difference to the ZX1. I wonder if the ZX507 can also record audio like the Japanese ZX1 can. Love that feature and replaces the need to resurect my Hi-MD recorders.

    I really don't get it... the ZX500 has a smaller screen and half the size of native storage than my ZX1 but costs almost twice as much, 5 years later! So dissappointed. Sony Nw-ZX507 64GB Walkman Hi-Res Digital Music Player with 3.6" Touch Screen, Aluminium Body, Android 9.0, S-Master Hx...

    Yeah this oldish news now, they seemed to have published late on this, but looks good doesn't it. Love the DAT player. Used the D3 in the late 90's before it broke.

    No problem, I'm in the UK too. Have no experience of the ZX300 so will let others chime in. Personally I'd wait for the September announcement before making a decision. If the ZX507 is something that would fit the bill, we in the UK probably wouldn't see it over here until March judging by...

    If you already have a lovely TAZH1ES, you could always buy a 2nd hand ZX1 or ZX2 and stream using these as a transport! I sometimes (rarely) with my ZX1.

    Interesting that the laser engraving is at the bottom of the device where I'd expect the WM port to be. Perhaps these FCC diagrams are a rough mockup with size not being relative? As we have new A series and ZX series coming, I wonder if early next week if there will be further FCC...

    Ah yes and selecting Dolby B or Dolby C. My dad used to work in a recording studio and used to use use the tape machines to play about with Dolby. To my ears Dolby C sounded worse than B. Here's the 2019 Walkman!! Bluetooth tape player...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    Hi HRidge My battery is now jumping from about 22% to 0 and turns off, so will need to replace my battery soon I think. After our conversation as above a year ago, looking at the NWZ-WM1 (not NW-ZX1 JP) service manual, the following part number is quoted for the Sony PN: A-1975-243-A and can be...
