    Sony Walkman OS custom firmware (non-Android)

    Hi there! Last week I returned to Chameleon 2.0 on my WM1A, switched to 1Z after I tested DMP-WM1 MK1 firmware mod for a longer time. I still prefer Chameleon due to its stronger and more powerful bass compared to DMP-WM1 Mk1...I am wondering if DMP-WM1 MK2 bass is stronger and more similar to...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    For the 3.5 mm headphone port I can also recommend the Teufel Real Z (https://teufel.de/real-z-104828000). One of my favorite headphones. Teufel is a German speaker and headphone manufacturer. The Real Z is very balanced with slight expended bass. Only one (slight) disadvantage is that it has...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    my recommendation too! the MDR-1AM is very balanced and has a surprising sub bass for 40 mm drivers. this is my current configuration on the WM1A with Chameleon 2.0 switched to 1Z. Best combo I ever had...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    me too. I thought, my WM1A was running on WM1AZ+...but then I detected that it was on chameleon running as 1Z.... I experimented half a day and finaly I switched back to 1Z on chameleon. indeed very deep bass and a holistic soundstage. I am quite happy with that... will new FW be a further...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I am not sure, if I would be in for a WM1A successor.. if so, then only for an uncapped device. But I am afraid that EU volume limitation will ruin it.....Before purchasing the WM1A I tested the ZX507. But I was not impressed so much and the capped volume was too low even with my not very...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Thank you for this extensive description and also for that for the vinyl processor. This is very helpful. Sony provided some tools but really lacks a proper documentation for it. ...find it out by yourself.... Your description helps to better tune my cameleon wm1a to 1z for several music genres...

    Sony NW-A40 Series NW-A45/A46/A47

    Unbelievable! Great stuff you are providing. Thank you so much!!! Just one question: will the modded FW disable the VTP surround sound function? This is one sound feature I really like and I am missing on my modded WM1A cameleon. I think, ZX300 doesn't have it....

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Fully agree! I tried the ZX507... But the EU volume limitation just sucks.... :-(

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Same for me! I love my WM1A combined with the MDR-1AM2. Very good synergy! For me it's a perfect match and the best mobil combination so far, I have owned. I also considered to buy used MDR-Z7M2 but currently in Germany there are not many opportunities. I am not willing to spend 1000 euro for a...

    There is ONE human race! Several people for sure, but only one human race! But that's out of topic.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    897 Euro is a very good price. The WM1A is in my opinion dedicated to local stored files (not necessarily high res file). If you prefer streaming, maybe the wm1a is not the perfect choice only for DAC and Bluetooth receiver function... I don't know... But if you are intending to purchase digital...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    In Bluetooth mode all sound enhancements of the 507 like DSEE will be disabled. Therefore only the DSEE function of the headphones will be active....

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I am very convinced that it will be an Android system to enable high res streaming. I think, days for single WalkmanOS will be counted. Even I prefer this very intuitive and simple OS to Android.... But I don't expect a successor in 2020. Earliest in end 21 or even later... If the flag ship...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Thanks! That's a clear statement. EU version remains a no-go, what is really a pitty. I stick to my Sony NW-WM1A and I am quite happy with it :)

    I prefer the WM1A/Z+. Sound is overwhelming :-))

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Balanced output on MDR-1AM2 with low gain between 40 and 45 but EQ, linear optimizer, Vinyl processor and DSEE HX AI all on. In direct mode I need a volume from 50 to 60, some albums even 65 to have the fun factor in listening

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Wow! You are faster with updating as I am able to give a thorough listing to all modes. Thanks a lot. Even I was sure never to touch the firmware to avoid loosing the beautiful WM1A toZ+ sound, I will give it a try today. ;-). Really excited... I am wondering if it's possible to activate the...
