Hello.... wold like to know whether this or other walkmans have the feature of counting the songs and changing the ratings. These two (besides the traditional tags) are the basis for a lot of smart playlists i had in my stolen iPod. Thanks in advance
Is this player worth it at this price if running 3.5mm SE and now balanced? Also has anyone tried the Campfire Audio Andromedas with this player? Is there any hiss with these sensitive IEMs?
RareAirs
I found it fantastic with the Andromeda. No hiss. Balanced out works better IMO.
Please note that this unit has only 16GB of onboard memory. I cancelled my participation once I realized that

But you can put big SD cards in it. You can buy a huge capacity microSD card or several microSD cards for the price difference between this and the 64GB model. It’s true that the buyer should be aware the included storage is only 16 GB, but I’m scratching my head to figure out a reason why you would cancel over a measly 48 GB. Feel free to tell me something I don’t know.
Specs?
bring this back for an after christmas sale for 300-400 and i'm in.... too steep and a lot of us are holding out for black friday and christmas sales, you have a lot to compete with this time of year and are just not meeting the challenge....still a supporter of yours, just hoping you step up your game.
Is it better than Lotoo Paw 5000 MKII?
Price is waaaay to high. Check Taobao price. They are offically 2050 Yuan. They cost less than 300 US bucks in China. Please correct the price to $309.99 here instead, to make this drop meaningful if at all. Massdrop has made HD6xx, k7xx happen before, now where's the spirit?
I agree with others. I would be willing to $399 for this product from a reputable US dealer. Ship date is reasonable. This price is not.
Great unit, loved it ever since I first bought it.. House Sony sound with similar balanced performance to the WM-1A. Sadly, this is the A version which is usually around $300 when bought in Asia (the market where the A model is meant for).
What's the warranty situation for this in the US?
I'm excited to see this product here on Massdrop. I'm disappointed that the retail price listed is the MSRP for the 64GB version, the ZX300. I'm also saddened that the price is not competitive with the discount. Would need to be $379US for me to buy (assuming I had the $ this month.) I do hope to see this version again on Massdrop in the future.
I bought this exact unit (well, in black) from joybuy earlier this year. Ordering from JB was easy and shipping took about a month. No problems at all. This unit has stellar reviews all over the internet. My experience using it has been great.

Even tho I know there's a US site for Taobao, I think the website is still in Chinese. So it might be easier for you to use JoyBuy

I was looking at JoyBuy, it looks like they may have been instructed by Sony that the ZX300a is not to be shipped to the USA anymore.
I have the Sony NW-A35 Walkman, and I absolutely HATE that Sony doesn't share ANY specs about their players, including output impedance, DAC chips, output power, HP Amp chips, etc. I paid $220 for my NW-A35 Walkman last year, and my $100 Shanling M0 DAP honestly sounds much better than the Sony, at half of the cost. My next DAP will be the Shanling M5s music player, and I won't be looking to "upgrade" anytime soon, because I actually know what's inside of the M5s!!!

Isn’t it possible, considering it’s Sony, that they use their own DAC/Amp chips instead of stuff from Texas Instruments or Cirrus Logic? I would like to see the output impedance stats too, but I could swear I saw the power output published somewhere.

You are probably right about the power output and their use of proprietary components, but they're still really vague about a lot of things when it comes to their own specs overall, and not just their DAP's! If they're using proprietary components, then I wish they'd at least tell me that LoL 😁
does it support 400Gb sdcards ?
anterak13
Yes. That’s what I use in mine.
Get it at joybuy for $379. Use the saved $90 for a 200g micro SD card. I did that eight months ago. You could probably find a much larger SD card for $90 today or Black Friday.

I don’t have any personal experience with JoyBuy, but I saw this DAP for sale there. I heard that it was kind of a gamble ordering from there, but the person that told me that has also written off a few other places that have been OK for me (with insured shipping). Any comments about the vendor itself?
Evshrug
My first purchase from them. I just went for it based on others that reported good results.
Received the email. Got excited. Then saw the price. :(
This is the China version, which retails in China for about $300 at most store (Sony store in China sells it for about $350 full retail).
tokata
Yeah JoyBuy.com has it for $379. Plenty of people have said it's legit
What a scam! At $ 699, this is the price of the 128go version!
Kyo9999
agreed, very misleading as this is the ZX300A with the capacity of only 16gb, which can be found on sony.com.cn for roughly $430 USD. No where near the crossed out price of 699.99, pretty big fail there MD!
