    I think it is fine for people to be surprised and/or be jealous and no one actually asked for a justification.
    I, for one, spend more than I should on audio, but still less than I could.

    Just to let you know incase the repair is chargable, expect the cost around USD 135, this is the conversion cost from Japanese yen for a replacement display including the outer glass, the price quoted is for NW ZX walkman and the new WM series, it so happens that I contacted Sony Japan a few days ago about replacement display and replacement battery for my NW ZX2, my NW ZX2's battery is discharging much faster than usual and the glue inbetween the main glass and LCD has started seperated, had it for over 2 years.

    Anyway, it's just for references.

    Something easy to conjure up these days. Things aren't quite like they used to be a few thousand years ago.

    Yes, back when the most expensive DAPs cost only a few denarii

    Thank you for the info. Let's see what they will say about the warranty, then of course if I have to I will get it repaired. I hope they won't charge higher than what you've mentioned.

    In Japan, it's 15000 yen + tax on top, price including service charge and labour, the same replacement in Hong Kong is about 900HKD, which works out about the same or approximate USD 135, but you will get either a slightly higher or lower cost, although Hong Kong is cheaper, I trust the people in Japan, Hong Kong service center is useless, thats why i'd rather want till december and have it done in Japan during my visit.

    It is not supposed that within warranty period the repairs are for FREE? at least when my Sony vaio failed twice on the LCD the repairs were performed for free by Sony mexico because it was under warranty at that timr

    Warranty, if accepted by the manufacturer, will be free. However, if they found the reasons of failure is due to the negligence of the owner, then they have the right to charge the owner for the works and repair services. It is the basic principle of it

    Anyone wants to hazard a guess where these came from? 20170525_231425.jpg

    Did you know? The WM1 is not charged when it is connected to the TA-ZH1ES 'walkman' port. Major fail from Sony IMHO....

    It does, only if you use the provided cables from the TA stock accessory, any other cables will not

    Now it won't work any longer. You need those wires.
