I can only imagine Amazon stocked heavily on it and the volume cap has massively affected sales and caused many refunds. Sony have probably agreed to let Amazon sell them off cheap due to this.

I'm almost tempted to buy another one. One for each ear biggrin.gif
Why has it had many refunds?
I m in the market for a dap...

The EU version has a volume cap and no high gain option which makes it only really suitable for  IEMs and easier to drive headphones.

 

This is the reason it has probably had so many returns, however over the weekend an incredibly simple hack was discovered that changes the region code of the device and adds back the high gain settings, whilst simultaneously removing the volume cap.

 

If you can pick up one of the heavily discounted WM1As and apply the hack then you will be getting a very good deal.

After a week of using my WM1A i must say I love the sound of the SE and makes me curious about balanced or TRRS, second I feel 1A is the most powerful walkman to date ever, thanks to H-gain, nice smooth volumen stepping of 120 steps VS the 30 of in the past that felt sudden increase in volume

 

While the UI is superb, love that cross swipe pattern, brilliant idea, absolutely love the idea of including a thing is rarely seen nowadays on DAPs, the Composer listing. Love the ui but the software has some downsides, and have high hopes sony will promptly fix the lagging issues, both touch-tapping and hardware-buttons press takes a bit too long to react. Loses track position on turning it OFF.

 

The source direct is a brilliant idea from sony, an one-go disable-all effects, absolutely loved the idea, fiddle with the EQ and to be honest is the first time i see an EQ that actually Works. didn't Heard that much a difference between  the DC phase linearizer settings, the Dynamic normailzer makes all LOUD

 

Too bad that in folder browser  (also not present in reléase year, however that is no prob) there is no A-Z popup like in the rest of the Listings, love the idea you can delete whole folders (albums) and individual songs on the GO, créate laylists on the Go is great too.

 

The heft of the 1A is significant compared to the weight of ZX100 and I actually like it, feels rock solid on my hands, however i feel so uneasy on a shirt pocket, better on a pants pocket or a bag, the SD card slot cover is the best i have seen on a walkman, my ZX100 and A17 had difficulties inserting the SD card due to being obtrusive parts.

 

Despite feeling cold to the touch,really I like it is made from a single machined aluminum block unlike zx100 plastic top and bottom faces that started separating.

 

Like the idea of the screen remaining off even when pressing buttons and sliding the HOLD switch, minimal waste of battery.

 

The USB transfer THANK GOD sony you finally increased speed to fast rates, my previous walkmans incl. A17 copied at 2-4 MB/s, ZX100 copied at 4-10MB/s AVG 8MB/s, and now this 1A copies at full spec USB 2.0 so 25 MB/s

 

sound commenst come after burnin

Probably because it is amazon themselves brand new, and not a warehouse return.  If you are still interested it is still listed.

I can't stress that enough.  I'm glad that they've improved upon that sluggish transferring speed.

this seems to be the same feature on the HAP device also, don't always agree with the choices, but it is a slick idea

Some people suggest a factory reset isn't always necessary.

 

Have you tried a hard reset by holding down the power button for more than 8 seconds?
