New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Sony HAP Z1ES

Hi John, my friend has this DAC/player and I have spent lots of time listening to our LP transfers on his system. It has a 1TB internal HD, and via USB one can connect a large hd -- we have a 6tb USB drive on it. The user interface is excellent and it sounds best with 128 DSD files which it plays natively.

I'd place its sonic signature in between the Oppo 105 and the Tascam DA3000 - if that give you an idea.

It incorporates a computer/music server and a DAC. One loads music on it via network connection. Loading it up is its greatest flaw because this goes much more slowly than ideal. The database takes a while to update. Once loaded, it is lots of fun to use via table app. It has be 100% stable since we started using it and the user interface via ipad is excellent. I find it to be as good or better as JRiver Media Center.

Just a thought.

Best, Stephanie
