    It also might be that HG is disabled on units with volume cap?

    It says on the rockbox link saying how to unlock it, that the code for USA is U, so I'm good.

    Ya I can double check it later but I'm fairly certain mine isn't capped, but I still do want to double check with rockbox I just have to download it first

    I had the same issue with the A35 and since i got the zx300 from Malaysia i was almost certain it didn't have the volume cap. Have fun with your unit.

    Btw, the ZX300a is discounted at USD359 for another 1 day, 22 hours at Joybuy...

    If you guys are looking for a fantastic alternative to the awful Music Center and want it to be easier to synchronize your files without drag and drop, you can use MusicBee. It works amazingly well. You can tell it to push the files and then a folder.jpg file (resized if you choose) into a nice directory structure and it will synchronize perfectly with your library. Really clean and it doesn't mess with your metadata by adding stupid sort fields and such or embed multiple album covers.

    You need to set the sound pressure to off to fully uncap it.

    Thanks buddy.

    Edited for the latecomers to the thread who want to uncap the volume or change region. I changed mines to Japan to get the 'playlist' feature.
    Go here https://www.rockbox.org/wiki/SonyNWDestTool and follow instructions. Download the two items.

    Mines is recognised as my 'G' drive. Note how I changed it to a small 'g'

    In the prompt box type/paste scsitool-nwz-v19.exe g: dest_tool get and hit enter.

    Then paste scsitool-nwz-v19.exe g: dest_tool set J off There you can change the country/destination.

    I had to rebuild the database after resetting the DAP but it`s easy and done through the settings.

    Sony's Canadian website dropped their DAP prices this weekend! However, it didn't include the ZX300. Just the big boys: NW-WM1Z - $3,999.00 to $3,199.00 and NW - NWWM1A - $1,499.00 down to $1,199.00.

    For you folks on Sony players who want an Acoustune ARC03 cable, I have a relatively new one (just two months old, barely used) that I'm selling, drop me a PM if you would like to get it.

    Apparently I lied. I must have somehow viewed the American site...yes I am an idiot.
    Which sucks because that NW WM1A was almost looking obtainable.

    It is looking like either the ZX300 or the Fiio X7ii.

    The ZX300 is close to the WM1A in sound in a very portable package.
