    I myself run my Golds through my WM1A's 4.4 connection. There's a very, very faint hiss on standby, but when music comes on it's definitely not noticeable.

    To add another data point about hiss. With the Andromeda gold and the cayin n6ii a01, single ended there is definitely a hiss. It's very slight and absolutely not noticeable when music is playing, but it's there. I also suspect there would be slightly more hiss out of the 4.4 balanced due to higher power output, but I haven't tested it as I see no real reason to run it balanced except maybe for the beefier 4.4 jack.

    They will not be :frowning2: I e-mailed them and they said 'Exclusive to Japan'. I'm pretty bummed about it, those look amazing

    I noticed no hiss from the 4.4 out , but I didn’t tried the 3.5 yet :D

    Awesome thx

    Thanks, that’s helpful. I became gun shy about hiss after buying Zeus!

    I hear hiss from A01/T01 with Zeus. If I’m in a quiet environment, and listening to Classical that has quiet parts, it’s distracting :frowning2:

    Man. Totally bummed.

    WM1A + Andro OG SE and balanced has a slight hiss when no music is playing. Not noticeable when music is playing.

    Andro Gold, however, hiss is more noticeable, even when music is playing. I think it’s ohm is even lower and more sensitive. Near dead silent with my SR15 I used to have though. Zero hiss with M0 or S10E.

    Hiss is the reason I got a dap actually. Then discovered another rabbit hole. Then cables...

    There must be an answer to this in this thread but anyway, how is the WM1A and Andro S pairing when it comes to the impedance output? Is it THAT bad as I read with bloated bass and rolled off highs due to the low impedance output of the DAP?

    It’s a really good pairing. I find it ups the low end (more warmth) and improves on the imaging and spatial cues. The upper treble is still very well extended so I don’t know what other comments you’ve read about it...lots of posts discussing the pairing positively.

    4.4mm is even better, adds more depth I find.

    If anyone needs additional cables, ALO Audio is running a sale, with some of the cables as much as 80% off: https://aloaudio.deals/cables/

    With deals like their Litz wire cable for only $29, I'd stock up for all my IEMs in the various connector types I use - though I've pretty much already switched to their cables for most of my IEMs (at full price... GRRRRR). I did buy a silver Litz cable (4.4mm) though for $49. I've been wanting to try it, but not badly enough to spend the retail $249.

    I much prefer their cables to any cheap chi-fi products I've found. Granted, they're likely made in China, but the quality is higher than the competition. And with a sale like this, they're priced like a chi-fi cable (even cheaper).

    I wanted to get the Reference 8 cable but it's unavailable in balanced.
    Any other sub 100$ cable that is an improvement over stock cable?

    Great DAP, tip and cable combination:

    Just dumped $300 on 7 (!) items in the ALO cable sale. Managed to resist the Gold 16 though...
