    Cool but I will keep my WM1A for a time, don't know how great will zx300 sound vs the wm1a, give them super bright nature of zx300, nonetheless I consider the USB DAC functionality to be long overdue

    Now if WM1Z could be doing USB DAC lol

    ZX100 is only a mid range product, don't think it's replacement warrants the anniversary treatment.

    On the other hand I think it's too early for a 1Z replacement too to celebrate Walkman anniversary, so perhaps a special edition of the 1Z?

    We're sooo going to get USB DAC on a firmware update @-@

    true

    Lol...special edition of 1Z such as making it out of Meteorite materials ? I am kidding, but I hope we will have more new development soon. Lately Sony has been pretty serious and busy into this industry. They are going to start pressing Vinyl records again after all the 28 years without it

    Not too sure about this. I doubt it lol. In order to receive the digital in signal, it needs a proper receiver chip such as Xmos and I don't think WM1A/Z has any of those.

    Well, unless the flagship processor of the new S-Master has this capability already

    Any word on pricing? Capacity?

    The DAP is already capable of interfacing and performing digital file transfer with a PC over USB, I don't see why it needs more converter chips.

    Logically speaking the S-Master wouldn't care as it would be fetching and decoding the file from some sort of local memory buffer inside the DAP, I can't see any competent engineer would make something that decodes from a straight raw digital signal.

    Someone did post saying it's about 100000yen , and I think it's going to be 128GB, if that is the case, the WM1A is a better choice.

    There's no pricing, it's all speculation by 2cher. The 100k yen one is definitely wrong, it's just made as a comparison to the WM1A which is 100k.

    From the manual the ZX300 only has 64g of storage, so no way it is WM1A pricing. Also it is supposed to be the successor to the ZX100, which is priced at 70k, so expect it to be around 60-70k.

    Remember the ZX100 is mid-tier product that is positioned below the ZX1/ZX2. So its successor cannot possibly be the same pricing as the WM1 series machines, which is the successor of the ZX2.

    It's weird that it's going for 64GB, the ZX-100 has 128 GB, but i think it's going for about 80K, which is below the the 119K for the ZX 2/WM1a
