really worth it.

Jun 28, 2019

had an NW A-45, which had a better sound than my iBasso DX90. Reviews were correct that this WM 1a sounded even better than the A-45. it does. Using Sony MDR Z7's, Sennheiser HD 800's and Sony WH1000mx3's. Got the sony kimber-based aftermarket cable ( i'm very into cable for opening up and smoothing sound. ) cable a quarter-better over stock, and that's more than i'd hoped for. listening to classical music -- string quartets and symphonic pie...

Superb unit that works perfectly

Oct 25, 2018

I have been using this unit for around a month now and ts by far the best sounding portable device I have found to date. The sound quality is stunning and both balanced and unbalanced outputs work fine. I have no idea what the other reviewer was doing but the unit works brilliantly and the sound is better that the first generation excellent high res Sony players. The memory is also expandable which is a terrific feature. Yes its more costly than ... Show More

No balanced output signal at all

Sep 1, 2017

I have a Sony XBA-Z5 with regular 3.5mm plug cable and Kimber Kable with 4.4mm balanced plug. Regular output runs ok but zero signal from balanced output -- Not even show Balanced icon on the screen. Called Sony, Sony said there is no fancy setup there. Balanced output should work right after 4.4mm plug plugged in. This is so disappointing -- after 8 months waiting and ended up with this. I strongly recommend owners at least try balanced output once to make sure there is no drama here. Of course the rest part of the Walkman works amazing.

Outperforms much more expensive players

May 29, 2019

I purchased this unit after purchasing and returning an Astrel & Kern SP 1000M. The SP 1000M costs over double the cost of the Sony. The sound quality from both players is excellent. I found the operating system of the Sony better, the ability to connect to my car stereo (both via USB and Bluetooth) superior and the battery life of the Sony far better. The only knock on the Sony is the inability to stream Tidal which was a nice feature of the Astrel & Kern. That aside the Sony is a far better player for me anyway.

totally worth it

Jul 1, 2019

playing classical: orchestra and string quartets. some opera and some 1930's pop. no modern pop or rock at all. presence and focus. what had had a harsh edge resolved into depth. digitized 78's sound more like modern productions.
