Still trying to find out if there are some comparisons between a WM1Z (or A) vs. an iPhone feeding a Chord Hugo

Right in the middle of here and there
Plugs arrived today from HK really surprised on the quality for the price, will.see what the final verdict is tomorrow after a bit of diy.





Also the carbon fibre rhodium plated cross head mmcx are a good buy as well fit the Z5 very snug no spin, a lot better than that rubbish they put on the 4.4mm kimber !


Nice and easy to solder etc

Happy New Cable Day! Very impressed with the Onso cables. Quality is top notch. Extremely light and flexible. Plugs fit into the 846's sockets nice and tight. The Sony Kimber Kable is getting re-terminated for the HD800S's.

Will be interesting to see how this new Sony DAP compares to AK's 380 or such (hope it gives many AK models a run for the money...And if so finds new converts)... hats off to Sony for really upping their game.


Can't help myself to my ears the 1Z is on par with my Accuphase + Kimber Select setup which is about 50k !?? AK (iRiver) was never an option for me, neither liked their gear nor their marketing. Also their 2.5mm balanced port is imo a bad joke.

Hi
 
Can you measure the diameter of the MMCX cover (black part)on your new cable.  Thanks

  For anyone who doubted the real effect of Brexit on UK goods pricing.....https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/walkman/nw-wm1z/buy
Sony's upped the IZ price by a cool £500 and we haven't even left Europe yet!

Ouch. Maybe I should have bought it for £1,630 when it dropped big time on Amazon. Still think I'd have found it too heavy to cart around compared to the 1A though.
 
The MDR-Z1Rs have also gone up by £300.

Where did you order them from? I've followed nanaholic's link to their website but can't see a link to buy.

LOL does it matter, Amazon is cheaper than stores, also Amazon seller is authorized US seller


Amazon is an AD, but the company that was using Amazon for fulfillment of the 1A previously was not. Looking at Amazon now, that other seller isn't around and Amazon looks to be offering the 1A directly, but they're temporarily out of stock! I talked to a non-Amazon AD in the US recently and they shared that they've had the 1A in stock for months but that Sony hasn't given them the clearance to start selling them yet. They're not happy about the delay. Cheers

On the right side of the page is an English language product inquiry. Fill it out and they will get back to you very fast. They sent me a PayPal invoice within 24 hours. My invoice for (2) cables was $194 USD. This included EMS shipping, which arrived in 3 days.
