    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    If you use the MDR-Z1R in balanced mode on the WM1A you shouldn't need an amp.

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    According to DHC they use the same connector for Sony and Focal. So there shouldn't be a problem.

    It's to allow the playback of the sound in music videos. AFAIK no one have been able to get it to work.

    Even if you are down to 1 bar after a week you still have 4-5 hours of playback.

    As long as you haven't made major changes to the files on the player 3.02 or any of the modified versions will rebuild quickly.

    They will work fine if use use balanced connection which will supply more power than single ended.

    This sounds like it was written by an A&K fanboy to try to show that it's superior. If you research there are numerous people who own both and say the Sony sounds better. As we all know measurement versus actual sound reproduction are two totally different things. A good source on this is...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    What does that have to do with my comment? There are many products in different price ranges that produce excellent sound that don't need equalization. One needs to set expectations. If you want a TOTL experience but don't have the funds then you determine what you want most. I sounds like you...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Nice check list. The only thing I disagree with is Equalization. I feel that you shouldn't need to use Equalization to fix or hide product deficiencies. If you don't like the sound then look elsewhere.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    If you installed using version 1.3 of that firmware and haven't change device type, you can just install official Sony 3.01 over it. If you changed device type you need to reset it back to the real device type before installing the official Sony firmware.

    I have 26 at the /MUSIC root, one for each letter of the alphabet. On the Sony screen you can see 7 items at a time in all views. And with MrWalkmans enhanced firmware scrolling is super fast. Even before his firmware I had no issues.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I doubt they will use Android for high end players like the WM1x or it's successors and will stick with their custom Linux OS. Android is a general purpose OS that can do many things. As such it contains a lot of bloat that isn't needed for serious music listening and effects battery life. The...

    Correct, if you are using the latest versions of his firmware you can just overwrite it using the Sony official version of your choice. However, make sure if you switched the model you switch back to the original before installing.

    No, I've been working with MrWalkman to create macOS version but have run into a technical difficult that I haven't been able to solve yet. I will keep trying. However even if I can get it working it only works with macOS Mojave 10.14 or earlier as Sony hasn't updated their install for Catalina.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    The firmwares are completely safe to use. I have both the 1A and 1Z and have only used the custom firmware on the 1A. I've been busy comparing how the 1A stock and a 1A switched to a 1Z compare to a real 1Z. Next up is to compare the + version on the 1A and 1Z. But so far the 1Z stock is better...

    For Sort Artist, if the artist name starts with "The", I drop it like iTunes does. So for "The Beatles" Sort Artist, the Sort Artist is "Beatles". For people I use last name, first name like "Hendrix, Jimi". That way Hendrix is under H and not J.

    All of the tags listed here are the official ID3 version 2.3 tag names and are recognized by the WM1 and should be recognized by any other DAP. I will say the ALBUMSORTORDER is not recognized by the sound system in my car. Just take sure that any tag editor you use uses these as the actual tags...

    What I did is a screen capture of what is seen in Kid3. The official tag name is "AlbumSortOrder". I verified this in Metadatics where it is showing that name for that field when I show all tags.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I came up with this system to get albums listed by order of release. I Previously used the year in the Sort Album but that adds complexity for classic rock artists who would release more than one album a year. So I started using the number prefix which I also use in folder name. My scheme is...
