Regret to inform that the Japanese engineer will not make it to Malaysia  cry.gif

However, you will still be among the firsts to experience the NW-ZX2 during the event  brows.gif

That's a pity. Would have liked to drill him on why they excluded native DSD support on their flagship $1000+ DAP..

i bet they were holding the native DSD back to market their future ZX3 at another increased price...

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

I saw price slashed to SGD 699 already, not Sony Store but ConnectIT

however still pricey for me and I am still happy with the iPod Classic lel

I never thought Sony would cater such a "niche" market. First they got into portable amps (after much touting with the S-Master digital amplifier in their DAPs, I thought that was as far as they'd go). Now this.

They did plan some custom IEMs as well "just ears" or something, but maybe they scrapped it since its been some times since there was any updates on that.

That would be very interesting. A household name making custom IEMs.
I just had to look that up. Seems like the rough prototype has a conventional (metal though) back, but the front half is custom moulded. Temperature sensitive acrylic or whatever it is. Pretty exciting, but up to 3000 of what I presume is USD, typical Sony pricing. tongue.gif

lol Sony Malaysia ZX2 invite event is on the 10th March, looks like E1 is more exclusive having an official preview before them on the 7th.
I assume it's official since the title is "meeting the mastermind behind the zx2"?

There is a slight change as the "Mastermind''s schedule was delayed sweat.gif It will be a preview of the NW-ZX2 with support from Sony Asia pacific nod.gif
