    So, Sony did silver on the ZX1 and black on the ZX2. I guess gold is the only logical evolution in color scheme.
     
    Boy that...that's blingy. [​IMG]

    2017 Year of Bluetooth HD
     
    It looks like HD bluetooth could become a big thing next year as Sony is set to license LDAC at a very reasonable cost to other vendors.  AptX is releasing their own HD bluetooth codec with products already mentioned including Philips Fidelio M1BT headphones.  The Sony MDR100ABN with noise canceling and LDAC coming as well.  No specs yet on APTX HD that I can find but is specifically mentions support for 96Khz/24 bit transmission. Here is a link if you are interested https://www.aptx.com/aptx-hd
     
    Not sure yet how I feel about bluetooth HD as LDAC does sound really good but is not good for battery life.  Even using LDAC standard the battery on my A17 drains fast.  I hope APTX HD is more efficient.  Sony is even talking about a headphoneless walkman device.  It will consist of a bluetooth enabled necklace with built in speakers projecting audio upwards toward your ears. I am sure it will use bluetooth LE 4.0 to save on battery life.  
     
    IFA starts up in about a week so we could see some interesting new products.  On another note Sony is supposedly changing their secretive ways and is looking to get more user feedback on future products either through listening sessions or even a beta testing program.  Sony accepting user input, what is the world coming to !!

    Don't get excited.  From Walkman Blog:
     
    "Update: looks like that figure might be way too low, according to a user in the comments, the headphones may cost around 3000 USD, the Walkman 2000-3000 USD and the DAC up to 3000USD.  If these figures are correct then this will be easily the most expensive Walkman set up to date and out of range of the average Walkman audiophile."

    That's imposible. It would be a suicide for Sony...
     
  15. goody
    Sony will not sell a Dap that high ...just impossible for sony to do that it will be between the $600 - $900 mark guaranteed
