Very high-end sound in a transportable player

This is truly a remarkable item. The build quality is excellent. The sound quality is amazingly transparent, with plenty of clarity and detail. My Focal Stellia headphone sounds best with the Z1. The Z1 has enabled me to enjoy the highest quality headphone sound that I have experienced. I primarily use the Z1 to play downloaded high resolution FLAC and DSD files. You can also play MQA files, but I have not tried this. You can connect the Z1 to your PC via the included USB cable, for copying music files to the 256GB internal storage of the Z1. There are two slots for micro SD cards that you can add for more storage. When connected to a PC, the Z1 can serve as a DAC, so you can get the best sound from streaming services, or other music sources available through your PC. If you are already familiar with the Walkman interface, this unit will be easy to use. Here are some tips for new users of this device: When the display times out, you can tap the power button to restore the display. In the settings, be sure to enable DSD remastering, which makes the sound smoother. In the Output Settings, look at "DAC Filtering Selection". There are six filter choices, which have subtle, but audible effects. You can find on-line discussions on the pros and cons of these digital filters. I currently like the "Super Slow" filter. When the power supply is connected, you can choose whether to run the Z1 on battery or AC. I don't hear any difference. The Z1 was worth the

Pros: Great, high-end sound quality Touch sensitive color display Transportable Easy to use Can serve as a DAC with your PC Very impressive appearance with a gold-plated volume control Includes balanced and unbalanced outputs Includes 256GB internal storage and 2 micro SD slots Can run on AC power or internal rechargeable battery

Cons: Price
