    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    Not value for money and no way worth 3x the price of the WM1AM2. If money no object, happy with nearly 1/2kg weight or absolutley must have gold plated copper for bragging rights then go Z.

    BEST DAP FOR RUNNING / GYM - HIGH END

    Sony A107 for offline streamed audio if not needing balanced cables. Small and light and about 6hrs battery for offline streamed audio. Not high-end but doubt you will find light/small for high-end.

    Sony Walkman Thread: 2022 Successors to the WM1A & WM1Z

    Its not. I bought from Sony UK then returned and got a Japanese one from Amazon.co.jp Its not just loosing high gain, the volume is also lowered by around 20-25 steps. As already said way back, easy to drive SE846 needed near 90/120 on UK one while on Japanese one 65/120 and only 45/120 if...

    Sony Walkman Thread: 2022 Successors to the WM1A & WM1Z

    Way over priced and questionable improvement over the NW1AM2 for 3x the price. PS. I've used both a stuck with the A over Z.

    Thought about the IER-M9? Sounds great and super comfy, though 5BA.

    You do appreciate this Sony volume limiting on EU Android DAPs has been going on since the ZX1 and they haven't done anything yet. My Amazon UK one returned seeing as pathetic and my Amazon Japan one perfect.

    This would be UK only, wouldn't help those in EU.

    My Hiby R5II has far more power even without class A mode and more battery too. I just have the 1AM2 and Hiby now.

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    Import if must have one. I dropped on one from Amazon.co.jp and near £300 cheaper too. Sony haven’t listened/action back to the ZX1. Would sooner have low EU sales over correctly interpreting EU rule (DAP with supplied earphones).

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    Thanks. Maybe because app originally saw it as 24/192 it remembers that even if reset back to 24/48? In reality, if the offline file is 24/192 Android will downscale to 24/48 if Hi-Res off.

    Or, App has been updated to make use of the Red path like the Walkman App and UAPP ? Or, it's showing wrong even though with Sony set to "Hi-Res Streaming off" Amazon should only see the DAC as 48Hz capable if using Blue Android Audio route?

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    For those that use Amazon Music, have you noticed the app now shows correct bitrate even if Hi-Res streaming turned off in the Walkman Sound Settings? I'm sure it showed only 44 or 48 before whereas I'm currently playing a range of 'Ultra' HD tracks of varying bitrate and showing as correct all...

    SONY NW-ZX500

    ??? I replied to a direct question! My recollection is unchanged from when I had it. Was your sarchasm 'helpful' or just made you feel clever/good 😏
