Default Walkman Line out for 30$ on Ebay?

Item Number 280492987364
What do you guys think? It should work with an X series, right?

well depends, is that a wm-port plug, if so then it should work but then I would not buy that and instead go for a small dock with line out, if you can find one still.

I bought 1, and I'm waiting for it to be shipped & delivered - thanks!!!

BTW: Here's the ebay link to the seller - http://cgi.ebay.com/Sony-Walkman-MP3...item414e962558

It's shows as GBP, but I paid around $30.00 shipped.

Question.....I know you love Sony's custom EQ and Clear Bass. Now, if this is a true line-out, won't those features be bypassed?

My Sony BCR-NWU5 dock has a line-out connection. The custom EQ and Clear Bass features output just fine through the line-out. Are you thinking of a home receiver's "direct" feature (or whatever each manufacturer calls it) that bypasses tone settings and ouputs an unaltered signal? I've also seen some optical outputs only output the original signal but not EQ'd signals.

Hey that cable looks great guys! Clearly one of the few good reasons for having a proprietary connector...Enjoy and report back please!

OFC cable! Handmade! Nice!

I think myself and one other member ordered it, and I didn't get mine yet - guess you'll have to wait a bit for the answer.

And Marv, I'm not sure if it bypasses all the sound enhanced enhancements yet,.......I didn't get the darn thing yet!!!!!

So what amp are you going to use with it? You still have the PA2V2?

This one seems even better to me Same seller, but this one allows you to use the line out with just your headphones or with an amp.
It's also cheaper

OK, I have both the LOD and the mini dock, and I experimented.
I'm using a S639 with a PA2V2 and a pair of HD650 headphones.
I played some music, and turned the clearbass up, YES it is definitely suppressing the mids, (I never put the Clearbass above +1, I'm not exactly a basshead) and I noticed no increase in the lower registers, but I think that clear bass suppresses some of the mids in order to keep them from being muddied by the increased bass, BUT I know that the PA2V2 doesn't have the juice to give the HD650's the Bass I know they have, so I plugged in a friendlier pair of cans, my 32ohm MDR-CD2000's and everything works fine!, What amp are you using? does it have enough juice to power the cans you're using?
Please let me know....
Listening to Massive Attack, pretty incredible! Yes, the sound enhancements work!

Hmmm, that is a beast of an amp, and top of the line IEM's I'll consult with someone who owns an ALO line out and see if it is the line outs, or if it is just the way walkman's are.
