Shame about the price tag like most other top end DAP’s. I think it’s mental and things need to calm down.
That lovely cable was $48 on 11/11.
This 11/11 it will be on my shopping list - If my DM6 ever turns up.
ZX300A is 375 on joybuy. Still I think.
No hiss with Sony WM1A, and after 40+ hours they have really settled down. Excellent iem.
Trying to avoid going down the slippery path of forever spending more to get better. Been there and done it in the HiFi audio world.
I recently bought a LG V30 to use as a dedicated DAP for streaming Tidal with full unfolding MQA and DSD/HiRes local file playback. Loving the LDAC BT from it. Lack of balance output from the LG is the only thing that makes me itch a little.
So far its keeping me content and I’m looking forward to seeing how the DM6 performs with it.
no hiss on my stuffs: BlueDAC, ES100, Ipod Classic, and straight from my Note8
The way I see it, I already have the ZX300, and I'll probably end up getting the WM1A, a bit down the road.
The ZX300 is the best bang for your buck, the thing is quality.
For the vast vast vast majority of people, this is as high up the DAP chain as you need to go, and you'd be surprised how much in AB testing this thing holds up it own weight, even against 4000 dollar daps.
I happen to also have the CL2, and synergy with the WM1A is hard to ignore
But on most iems, the difference is hardly worth an extra 600 dollars (or with ZX300A 800 dollars)
Buy quality once, and save your money on repeat purchases is my motto.
But I am sure the DM6 will pair well with the V30, it is not hard to drive. Hope it works out well.
I’m loving the LG right now. I have it streaming Diana Krall from Tidal at MQA 24/192 and it’s doing the job sweet. Not many top end DAP’s can do this as well.
Bigger smile on my face is because I have just tracked my DM6 and it’s in the UK after being missing for weeks
Time to order the obligatory OCC cable. Cheap NiceHK High Purity Cooper Vs BGVP OCC ? Got to decide now.
I totally agree the ZX300 is all that’s needed. And.....it’s all subjective but I was surprised by the drop going down from the ZX300 in the Sony line.
I’m pretty sure that’s gone and not an option any longer, though they do show up used in the for-sale section.
get the copper
The 1A and DM6 after 40 hours is heaven. IMO
My dm6 has paired well with the Opus #1. What is more important is the quality of the music files. The dap and iem are somewhat neutral/transparent imo. I have put together a new playlist with music focused purely on good recordings. No hiss whatsoever using SE and stock cable. dead silent whether it is on high/med/low gain.
Just wondering if anyone paired them with an amp + dap combo.
The soundstage width and depth are definitely better on the WM1A.
It is very apparent on the CL2, have not tested the DM6 on it though. (Though I am guessing the 1A is a better pairing than the 1Z)
I prefer both over the WM1Z, I like transparency and clarity over textures and layering.
Yes agreed, it is very much a matter of taste
Edit: have to admit I am a bit biased because the 1Z makes my CL2 harsh sounding. That's my baby
