    Official Sony DMP-Z1 Thread

    I don't see Sony selling these in the US The target market of these devices are Asia, namely Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China. That's why they hold this press release in Hong Kong But then again, the DMP-Z1 itself will be a very, very exotic device. Sony probably estimated only about 5 or 10...

    Official Sony DMP-Z1 Thread

    From my guess, USB 2.0 is to be compatible with a wide range of devices with USB Audio. About storage, I agree, at that mind-blowing price, one would think Sony should use SSD instead, especially when the price has gone down and SSD provides real advantages to music playback

    It's HDTracks, there are too much upsampled crap. I've been collecting and listening to Hi-Res music from Japan (mainly anisongs), and I can tell you, it is definitely high quality stuff And I always buy Hi-Res digital because I don't want to deal with the hassle of importing CDs from Japan, not...

    Maybe Lantis mastered the album at 32bit 384kHz before releasing in DSD? And If I remember correctly, some of Sony and Tascam's pro studio gear have support for Hi-Res recording, so the studios in Japan can buy and use them for their Hi-Res release I don't know about the west, but high...

    Best IEM under 300

    To me it's the Sony XBA-N3AP Amazing sound quality: Warm sound signature, clarity across the entire frequency with rich, deep bass, smooth mids and sparkly treble. Decent soundstage and stereo imaging. Vocal sounds like having the singer literally sings directly next to your ears, stand out...

    Haven't watched Fate Apocrypha yet, but I just listened to its second ending And holy jesus, the song is ridiculously good and the singer just nailed it (She goes by the name of ASCA - a new artist from Sony's Sacra Music, probably from their audition a few months ago). Her voice is so sweet and...

    mora, a Japanese online music retailer run by Sony, is cutting down the price of some DSD albums on their website, up 50% in accordance to the update of its music app which now supports up to 11.2MHz (really?), but whatever, the point is Japanese music are usually crazily expensive...

    Rejoice, HA-2/HA-2SE and Portable DAC/AMP iOS users! I've updated my 7 plus to iOS 11 Developer Beta. And it looks like Apple has addressed the problems with USB Audio data transfer.

    Anyone here watching Re:Creators?   Not minding the plot since it was just 2 episodes. But the OST alone make this show 10/10, especially the opening song

    Some inexpensive Fiio or Shanling DAP can play these files. It's just a matter of having enough storage though (hi res from Mora is very storage consuming, e.g a 4 minutes song is around 130mb)  Plus you can always resample/dither them to 16 44.1   What I like about Hi Res from japanese...

      Feels great to jump into the Anime song bandwagon, I'd totally have no idea Rakudai's OP is available in Hi Res until now   Does anyone here also collect/buy Hi Res songs from mora too?

    Kalafina, because:   1. The 3 girls' voice synced harmoniously into a wonderful voice 2. Yuki Kajiura - the group's main composer, doesn't make simply make music. I swear I've never heard anyone like her making music sounds so magical and beautiful 3. If there's one thing Sony has done...
