Considering our weak economy, I think many wouldn't even want to taste any at this time tongue.gif

Btw read several impressions that preferred the ZX2 over the AK240.
What are your own impressions of the two? biggrin.gif

The Android UI + battery life beats the hell out of the AK240 but the SQ and premium feel ... no way! sweat.gif

Really don't think there will be a price slash any time soon for the ZX1 as it is at a totally different price point to the ZX2 and is not meant to be replaced with the ZX2 sweat.gif

But so far all the initial impressions from those who got it on headfi prefers the ZX2 over AK240 in terms of SQ. Good to have a different view if you place the AK240 over the ZX2 biggrin.gif

there is always the hype express with a new product, the ZX2 doesn't even do DSD natively sweat.gif

if the ZX2 outperform the K240 at half the price, this will be a killer ... not a realistic expectation sweat.gif

the ZX2, being Android based, is targeting at the Spotify / Tidal streaming market much more than the premium audiophile market nod.gif

Yea really annoyed they didn't opt for native DSD support... was almost tempted to get the ZX2 but this is a bit of a set back. Still interested some what though.

For those who missed this, the slide presentation on how the ZX2 came about is quite interesting.
