    I've got another question...is there an app that allows you to see all your music in the zx2? I've installed tidal (which sounds very good) and had planned to also load up my cd collection which is on a hard drive. What would be ideal would be one place to see it all instead of going between the Sony music player and tidal. I've tried the free onkyo app and it didn't do this but the one that you have to pay for may solve my problem.

    Just thought of another one...is there any way that I can get the eq controls in setting to work for tidal? I can get the clear audio and dsee X buttons to affect the sound but not the equaliser.

    Thanks

    I dont think there is any way to do that. From a start Tidal is streaming so not even on the ZX2. Even when you store some Tidal music local it will not be stored in the same place as your own music and the files will be in some proprietary Tidal format probably with some kind of drm copy protection on it to prevent you from copying and sharing the music and the files can only be played by the Tidal app. Same goes for all the other streaming services like Spotify, Quoboz, Apple music (not that you can have that on ZX2 as the Android version is too old).

    Thanks - I didn't think there would be an app or way to do it as the two systems sit separately on the player. I'll maybe just stick to tidal other than a few obscure CDs I've picked up over the years. Whilst the eq would be useful I haven't bought many CDs since about 2012 (I mainly listen to vinyl and streaming services) so I've got big gaps in my collection of stuff from the last 5 years. The sound with tidal is very good and only interest in the eq is to boost the bass a bit for my se425s but as I've got other iems I can swap the shures out when I need some more bottom end.

    Cheers guys!

    In my case, I actually noticed an improvement to the imaging when using a stock cable that came with a set of headphones (Velodyne Vtrue), but terminated in a balanced 3.5mm plug. Nothing special or upgraded about the materials, just happened to have a balanced 3.5mm TRRS termination, but it was still appreciably better, that's what convinced me to then spend the cash on a proper balanced upgrade cable.

    Edited for clarity.

    Right on! Exactly what TRRS improvements are and regardless of materials. Upgraded materials will be even better :D

    Apple is developing hi-res streaming service ( http://www.macrumors.com/2015/12/20/apple-high-resolution-audio/ )
     
    ZX2 owners probably out of luck, since Apple Music does not install on ZX2 (requires 4.3 Android version and higher), logically hi-res app might follow this route...

    Probably iPhone 7 will seek to Kill daps :D

    If streaming services was your primary use case, you wouldn't need a high quality DAP in the first place, could save a lot of money with a phone that has lots of storage. ZX2 users particularly still have Spotify and Tidal, which is better than 95% of DAPs out there which can't even install apps in the first place.
     
    Nice try.

    Doubt it, if they keep trying to shave more millimetres off the thickness of the phone [​IMG]
