The PHA-3AC is a fine performer. It has a pleasing blend of strengths, which make listening to all types of music a pleasure. If you’re in the market give this one a listen.
Precise, articulate presentation, Good level of insight, File compatibility, iPhone and Xperia compatibility, Compact size
Doesn’t offer the true portability battery operation should, Lacks the quality feel expected at this price, Class leaders offer more transparency and spaciousness
I expected this unit to be awesome and it didn't let me down. It's expensive but I am discovering sounds and effects that I have never heard before. I have about 350 songs downloaded from Itunes at 256k.
Clarity, volume, rich full sound.
Price, but well worth it to me.
Bought this to pair with my MDR-Z7's. A match made in heaven in terms of sound quality. The version of this product I got was the one with the rechargeable battery thankfully.
The Sony PHA-3 DAC is fantastic. Makes my music sound great! You need not be an audiophile to appreciate what a DAC can do for your listening experience.A DAC's primary purpose is to bring more sonic realism to your music and serve as a better driver for your headphones/earbuds.
Very well built, Precise volume control. Gold plated headphone inputs. Options to connect any portable player, DVD/CD player or any type headphone. Battery operated for portability. Processing for AIFF, FLAC, DSD MP3, AAC files and more.
Expensive. No Apple connection cable. No case. This isn't really a con but the weight and bulk of the PHA-3 when attached to a player suggests you won't be throwing them in your pocket for a jog down the street. Portability in this case means room to room or backpack to office desk.
Truly excellent sound. Really involving with a fantastic sound stage. It gives you a real sense of space and detail allowing you to rediscover your music collection. As the unit is not able to work off battery power the only downside is always having to be near a socket.
Bought the Japanese version of the PHA3 to strap onto the NWZ-ZX3, space shuttle style. Although there was some inprovements over the NWZ-ZX2, mainly in the bass and sounding less digital, I don't feel that anyone thinking of buying the PHA3/NWZ-ZX2 combination is getting the best value for money...
Adds detail, has many useful I inputs.
I have the Japanese version - simply stunning. Has the re-chargeable battery which others state not available on the UK version. Battery lasts about 5 hours connected digitally to the xperia/walkman/pc usb audio connection to the PHA-3 thus using it's superior DAC.
I have my Walkman ZX2 hooked up to it and use my Sony MDR-Z7 with balanced cables. With my Z7 headphones you need the gain set to high and I keep the DSEE HX switched on. Everything is more alive and the balanced cable really makes a difference. More separated and clear.
Just a word of caution here. Assuming this is the UK version note the word portable is somewhat disingenuous. Unlike the superior non European model this does not have a rechargeable battery. So by portable do not assume you can use it on the go with your DAP.
