SONY - Thank you for remembering the SACD DSD
 
I thought all major companies forgot about quality music after MP3's. Thank you SONY for keeping audiophiles alive! I stumbled across this device by accident and found it was the best investment of my life and for my audio system. With the correct software I was able to transfer all of my SACD DSD formatted files to this device. I am using the SONY Apple App. Playing high quality files is a breeze and a joy. If you are unable to transfer your SACD's, you can still purchase the DSD's on line and...

Sony HAP-Z1ES
 
The Hap-Z1es really makes the accessibility of your cd collection at your fingertips from your iPad or phone. I strongly urge you to buy this from a company like Crutchfield because Sony has NO customer service unless waiting on hold for 2 hours is your idea of tech support. Crutchfield helped me through the set up process while not hard, had a few ambiguous steps since Sony does not provide a hard copy set up manual . I'm still uploading my cd's which I admit is a tedious process, ( I n...

Qobuz support PLEASE?!
 
Really a well built and great sounding unit. That said, it's a high res player, that streams... but doesn't stream Hi-Res? With Qobuz about to launch in the US, come on SONY!!! You support it on other products, but not your flagship? PLEASE make the firmware updates necessary to support Qobuz. If not Qobuz, Tidal, but Qobuz would be great, no need for MQA. I used to recommend this player to EVERYONE. With a few software updates with the interface (make playlists easier to make etc...

Outstanding digital audio component
 
After doing much research in trying to get in the "Audio digital age" I decided to buy this Sony "High Resolution digital music player" 3 weeks ago, found it to be an excellent product. Sound quality is superb even when listening to converted music from my Ipod .

Ahhh, this is what I'm talking about. Beautiful
 
Finally, a music player that has the absolute highest quality sound possible in the digital realm. Of course you need to play Hi-Rez files to fully bathe in its dimension. As for your old rips, the up convert is amazing. Not a single noise, it makes me cry. This player was intricately engineered to please the most discerning audiophile. The HAP transfer was a breeze. And with ever expanding library of Hi-Rez music on line, I feel this is the beginning of the long awaited technologically advanced...

Not so Hi Res
 
As a streaming players is good. What is missing?? It cannot play 11.2 DSD, or 352/32 wav files. I have the Sony headphone amp and the Hi res walkman and they are superb in every way. Software updates please

The future is here
 
This is my first foray into the realm of HiRez digital. I am not a computer geek, had no music files on my PC, had never downloaded music before. My main interest was to organize and collate over 2,000 cds scattered and out of control. The HAPZ1ES (I call it the "Z") is easy to set up and use, and not only is storing and organizing all of them, but in A-B comparisons with the CD ripped and downloaded to the hard drive, it sounds better too! I know this doesn't seem possible, bu...

Network Software Issues
 
This unit does an excellent job of reproducing digital music files. However, the softwrae supplied to transfer files over the network sometimes can't find the unit. Additionally, the playlists are made and edited via a smart device app which is very kludgey. They should look to iTunes for a better implementation. The app occasionally loses its place.
