  I have no idea, it's loading music right now so when it's done I'll take a pic. The box was sealed in plastic with a sticker over the flap and the player was wrapped perfectly. I purchased a NIB box product so I would be pretty upset if I didn't think it was new.
 
I'll try to connect it to the uncap tool to see what the destination code is, shouldn't be hard.

Am I looking at this wrong?-

I put "E off" and now all features are unlocked. Everything looks good Hydrored. I got my 1A for 200 more brand new. :grimacing: Now too bad.

No, that is uncapped. Your conformity sticker confirms it is a UK destination player, but the firmware destination is wrong for the UK. If someone didn't change it and return it, Sony must have shipped it wrong. Is remote control enabled? If so, it's probably set for Tourist destination. If there is no remote option, it's probably set for US destination.

The destination was set to "CEV", in any event I changed it to U for the hell of it. I'll keep it as I'm confident it's new.

Time to give this thing a whirl, my Campfire Audio Vega got delivered today. :)

Cheers!

Just ordered silicone case for my 1A from eBay. http://m.ebay.com/itm/For-Sony-Walkman-NW-WM1A-NW-WM1Z-Silicone-Gel-Skin-Case-Rubber-Cover-/112337537217?var=&hash=item1a27d6c8c1%3Am%3AmJh7PYpqQWw1005VzuM_ylg&_trkparms=pageci%253Aaa8bf669-0b39-11e7-9a5b-74dbd1801750%257Cparentrq%253Add60d87215a0a5e0b6fc5343fffe71dd%257Ciid%253A14
I hope it will fit and look just like in photos.

The bass on 1Z certainly hits harder than on ZX2 and everything seems tighter and more controlled

Yeah, bass form zx2 sounds like from small bookshelf speakers. Nw-wm1x has much more bass resolution.
