Sony NWZ-ZX1

 

Sony seriously impresses us with its first attempt at a premium high-res audio player

Seriously good sound with layers of detail and subtlety ; Great timing and strong dynamics ; Lovely design with buttons

Pricey ; No expandable memory or DSD support ; Mediocre screen

We really like the Sony NWZ-ZX1. It is a brilliant first attempt at a premium high-res audio player. Purely in terms of audio performance, it is the best portable music player we’ve reviewed.

Sony NWZ-ZX1 high-resolution audio player

 

A beautifully designed top-end audio player that supports high-resolution files

22 hour battery life ; Incredible sound quality for 24-bit tracks ; Still manages to have a good soundstage on compressed tracks

Asking price is steep ; Older Android 4.1.1 with some underwhelming specs means that UI transitions are sluggish ; Proprietary charging cable could spell trouble if you lose it

Sony NWZ-ZX1 High-Resolution Walkman review

 

Sony reckons the way to resurrect the MP3 player is to ditch MP3s and go all high-end and high-res. Your ears will love it, but your wallet less so

Amazing sound quality ; Lovely looks and build ; Android means it does more than just music

Expensive ; High-res music isn't easy to get

The best-sounding portable device we’ve heard, but it's only really for the most dedicated hi-res audio pioneers

The Walkman has come of age...

 

...and done so with an excellent piece of kit.Once you get over the shock of the price, you're in for a treat that is well worth the investment.Out of the well-presented box, you'd be right to think you've been sent one of the higher-end smartphones by...
