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

    After reading this thread i am again tempted to buy the wm1a. Had it way back in 2018 or 2019 not sure haha but sold it and now i miss the sound. Just got a couple of questions before i take the plunge, will the mods affect warranty if i get one new? Or its easy to just reset to stock? Also is...

    AirPods Max

    Hi, from reading past posts here it seems using the airpods max cable is not completely lossless as per apple, but I’m still interested does it provide any audible improvement? The cable is finally available in our country months after i got the airpods max, so was wondering if i should get one...

    [FiiO BTR5/FiiO BTR5 2021] Flagship Portable High-Fidelity Bluetooth Amplifier, Bluetooth chip CSR8675, support up to 384kHz&DSD256 native

    With apple set to have lossless I’m thinking of getting this one or the dragonfly red for my iphone 12 pro max… but i’m leaning towards the fiio since it has a bluetooth and wired option. I’m not really a technical person so i figured I’d ask here, using a cck and a usb c cable to connect the...

    AirPods Max

    Got it thanks sir! Sorry not really into the jargon of 1khz etc hehe i guess that’s for the audiophile ones and the hardcore ones on here hehe but i appreciate it a lot, so APM is better for you than hd650, makes me more excited to get the APM. too bad its likely going to be a couple of weeks or...

    AirPods Max

    hi sir thanks, yes there was a time i also had the hd650 before shifting to the hd600. So overall would u say you prefer the hd650 over the APM? Purely on a sound quality perspective, i do know its really hard to compare as there are many factors but i’d figured i would ask, just so i know what...

    AirPods Max

    Also would like to ask since up to now the airpods max is not yet officially available in our country, how is the sound quality compared to an hd600 generally speaking? I know its a weird comparison but i do have the sony 1000xm4 and the hd600 and curious as to how good the airpods max will be...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    agree on this, i owned the dx160 and the hiby r6 and the zx507 at one point together and for some reason despite being bit perfect on the dx160 and the r6 while streaming, the zx507 still sounded better. This is both on tidal masters and qobuz. Add the fact that the dx160 and hiby r6 had wonky...

    AirPods Max

    despite usb c being a mess, and i agree on that, they did manage to use it on the ipad pro (2018 version) and macbook pro M1 that i have so apple can do it for sure. Even their homepod mini released last year uses usb c. personally i only carry usb-c and usb-c to lightning nowadays, so hopefully...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    i had both for two weeks, sold the wm1a hehe the zx507 is that good as for the dx160 vs 507 here is my experience: I also at one time had both zx507 and dx160 and had similar impressions as some here... the dx160 seems more neutral but the sony house sound is hard to ignore especially if you...

    Zx507 pairs and powers my hd600 very well, very similar to the wm1a. Just to add, using it on balanced connection

    Its dac is good enough especially for its price but u could also connect it to a better dac, i used digital out and connected it to the mojo and pairing was great... so in a nutshell the dac is good but if u have better dacs then use that one if u prefer

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Battery life is adequate for me, i stream all the time but i also dont listen all day hehe... But as with all wifi devices with screen, it does need to be charged if used extensively... the auto shutdown when not in use turns out to be a great addition in my use case as i dont listen strictly on...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    when trying usb audio out, my issue with it in using streaming is that regardless of bit rate, its all upsampled to 96khz, i dont know why, tried posting it here but got no reply. The only time the sony transfers usb audio out in native bitrate is when using the stock music player and the uapp...
