Well this goes beyond finicky. I believe that what is happening here is by (poor) design. I've previously noticed that the downloaded files are arranged based on the system that they came from, and...

I'm having and issue with the Sony transfer program. I replaced the Windows system that I've been using to transfer my files to my HAP-Z1ES, being careful to name the new system the same, give it the...

Timothy,

I don't understand the comment about the "Yamaha wireless network adaptor" in the above, as it appears to be related to the CX-A5000. Since the CX-A5000 doesn't provide wireless support...

When I got my first unit last year (Sony has since replaced it), I attempted to transfer all ~38000 of my flac and dsf files to it. After about a week it claimed to be done but I was unable to play...

Just curious, why didn't you run the HDMI from the Oppo to the Yamaha AVR and then to your display? Why use the toslink connection at all?

That's what I thought you may have meant. It never even occurred to me that anyone would try that, even with normal HDMI cables. HDMI is flaky enough w/o adding extra risk such as that.

No, and it's not likely that I ever would. It is really a major job to replace my CX-A5000 as it is in a very complex system arrangement (11.2 channels, 15+ input devices). I never change it without...

I own and use both (in different systems). I can't speak to any multi-zone features since I don't use them (I simply duplicate stuff :) ). There are, however, additional DSP modes in the CX-A5000...

If you do download your 1.5TB of flac files to the Sony let us know how that works out. When I got my first HAP-Z1ES last April I had a 4TB external drive connected to it and I (eventually, after...

Yeah, I was afraid of that. I was asking for the person I gave my 93 to (I upgraded sometime ago), I thought I'd ask here. Guess I should have checked the online manual.

Ok, I looked it up and...

For hi-res digital out they'd have to do HDMI (and HDCP), not optical or coax, as I understand it. That's one of the few things I'd change if I could about the box. A couple of others are...

Since I don't use it I can't say from personal experience, but according to folks on another forum for the HAP-Z1ES, it sounds like vTuner is working again. :)
