Product Comparison: Sony NW-ZX2-B vs Sony NW-WM1A
- Extra storage using 128Gb micro SD cards works well. Nice leather case.
- There is an mazing amount of space and I also bought micro card with a further 128gb
- With the addition of a 200Gb micro sd card I have enough storage for my portable needs.
- I have just over 100gb of music on the player which works out at just under 5,000 tracks. With a 200gb card I'll be able to load another 10,000 which will be enough for most collections.
- Product delivers quality sound and battery life excellent and even functions well with 200gb micro sd card
- The touch screen after the updates works perfectly fine.
- No lags in my 300GB + of jazz albums (600+ albums) in flac/a few in DSD. The OS handles everything without burden, a previous concern.
- The external buttons are well placed and the hold button (to disengage functions) is simple and well positioned.
- The touch screen works fine perhaps lacking a little fluidity when scrolling but I don't find it an issue.
- Also have a 400GB SD Micro card and all works fine. Wow!
- This walkman looks good, has high quality build and sounds great
- The overall quality is superb, no doubt it has the top design and hardware.
- Love the solid construction of the player. Once paired with a good set of earphones, becomes sound nirvana.
- The build quality is superb. Loads of power to drive any phones
- Well, you have to see one of these and then you will realise that Sony didn't cut costs in it's manufacture or development. It really is a remarkable piece of hardware
- The build quality is excellent, it feels heavy, but much lighter than the coveted gold model
- Apart from being better built and with a much nicer user interface (including touchscreen), the Sony is extremely musical (something the QP2R lacks)
- Physically it is well crafted, very robust, and in my opinion a beautiful HiRes DAP.
- First, its design is absolutely outstanding, if not the best, of its class
- Great sounds and packed with features. A balanced connection. Well constructed.
- This unit does it all. The bass boost, upscaling of MP3 audio and the circuitry is revolutionary.
- Whilst out I use high rate mp3’s on the device but at home I use dlna to stream FLAC files from my server.
- Fantastic product. Great build and design. The sound coming out of this device is surreal.
- If away for any length of time I take my music library with me, stored on a portable wifi enabled hard drive with built in media server.
- True DSD, outstanding hires PCM, analog volume control, built like a tank
- I am delighted with the Sony for its excellent sound (-I much prefer it to A&K models I tried out)
- Its bass is simply superb to any other DAP offering I have heard thus far.
- The unique thing that is important is the sound. I've listened DSD, FLAC and other formats. The sound is fantastic.
- There are two gorgeous gold jack sockets one for standard 3.5mm and a 4.4mm for balanced cable.
- I like that the Bluetooth features can be toggled. It works well with an Astell & Kern XB10 for wireless listening.
- The performance is great, one charge can last for a couple of weeks if you turns off most of the connections.
- Great battery life, fantastic sound quality even on non-HD files, handles all file formats well, robust build.
- Battery life is excellent as long as you keep wifi turned off when not using it.
- I have been running the Walkman with Shure 425. Charge holds me for about 14 hours with screen mostly off and on low brightness and the WiFi on about 20% of the time.
- Fantastic sound quality and strong battery performance.
- I enjoy unexpectedly good battery power.
- But to me at this price range WM1A is the best choice, taking UI, design & battery life into consideration as well.
- Not too large for most people to hold, wrist strap is supplied. Very good battery life
- Amazing battery life, lots of options, eq settings.
- Battery life is decent, considering I keep the screen on for long intervals and play this at a fairly loud volume with high gain and tone controls activated.
