Separate names with a comma.
Now it has multicolor and becomes a brick too interesting..
Thanks for the image. It looks very hefty which is a great sign. I really hope it retains an Andriod operating system.
Are we seeing 2 or 3 different DAPs so far?
(The bulky one doesn't look pocket-friendly to me, though. )
Design of the black/brown looks a bit understated/conservative, while the photo doesn't seem to do the gold colour version much justice.
Think they took the "no hump" criticism to heart - and instead opted for an overall thicker but flush/flat device.
They kept the Walkman port - that's going to be controversial. Completely understand where Sony's coming from (they have an ecosystem of accessories for that port) and doesn't matter what where you fall regarding cables and their effects, fact is people like to buy different digital cables. I think that would hurt them.
I hoper thicker means more powerful. This is what has always been lacking in Sony DAPs.
I'm actually glad that they are keeping the walkman port. This way the unit will work with the BCR-WMH10 docking that I have (highly recommended to anyone by the way). This dock allows my ZX2, ZX100, and ZX1 to work as a digital transport to my Yggy DAC. Regarding the walkman digital cable, a few mfgs already offer them. I, for once, own a silver walkman digital cable along with silver/gold versions.
I hope so too. More estate for a beefier amp section is a welcomed sign that's for sure. Why such a big screen if it is supposed to be running a Sony Walkman OS and not Andriod? Here hoping for a dual microSD slots!
I saw that...
Also a black-ish version. Now I'm interested. Never liked the timing on the A&K...
Hoping for an Andriod version too! It has gotta be given the size of the screen. More driving power, better sound, dual microSD...that's all I need.
so there 3 new DAPs.....
We need android Nougat, with dual boot ios, 1Tb internal flash, and 6 micro SD. Don't forget 384kHz/32b ready with Dolby Atmos headphone and DTS-X hardwired in DSP, and of course MQA.
What I really want is an Xperia phone with a decent output and output level.
Wow...that's a good looking faceplate. That's a Dac too?
Someone wants my PHA-3???
MDR-Z1R Headphone, NW-WM1Z walkman, TA-ZH1ES AMP!!!
Aren't the dark ones the same device, just under different light conditions?
