Great Headphone Amp Plus

TAZH1ES 30/11/2017  (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified

Though the years have a a few Sony items. This headphone amp is excellent, and doubles as a DAC for a system, as well as streaming. Only four starters as a ES product and cost, it should include a balanced output for connection to a system.

Stunning with headphones and walkman

TA-ZH1ES 13/10/2017 by BudH (United Kingdom)

Having used (WM1Z) walkman for a while i took the plunge and went for the full desktop setup with matching Z1R headphones. Nothing short of spectacular results on all formats - even when fed digitally and used to listen to "regular" internet radio etc

Superb finishing & performance!

TA-ZH1ES 01/06/2017 by KKLeung218 (USA)

I haven't got much interest for headphone listening initially. So I just intend to buy it as a DA converter for my 2-channel home system. Having it for months and I never get disappointed about its performance! You would absolutely miss its potential if you just function it as a headphone amp only!Sound is stunning all the way round and I really love it so much! But one "star"will be deducted regarding the cosmetic design of the unit. It should have an acrylic cover or something like that in front of those headphone input which would undoubtedly make it looks more tidy and dust free when we supposed not to use all inputs!

Superb electronics engineering

TA-ZH1ES 20/04/2017 by jirams (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified

I bought this amp to replace my Sennheiser HDVD800 amp and it has not disappointed me. My only negative is that the HDVD can drive up to 4 sets of 'phones at same time. The Sony is used mainly with MDR Z1R 'phones and the combination is breathtakingly good. Expensive is a relative term. It is just such a beautiful musical experience hearing them together.
