And then you touch another similar topic - can firmware affect sound.
I personally owned wm1a and all of the available firmware versions. And i did hear the difference on each. It seemed like a lot of sony owners did. But when i moved to ibasso and got a custom rom, which to my ears had improved sq. There were a lot less people convinced that it can affect sq.
So go figure..
Btw @Skycyclepilot are people here helping to decide on choosing amp? Lol.
Title is asking a question though it doesn’t say “help me chose an amp”
Go to this thread and you can read about lots of people hearing FW mods. It’s a pretty big deal. In fact it’s probably been the most enjoyable part of my journey? The early modification firmwares were just alternate tunings. In the old days; 7 months ago you could get the Rockbox region changer and change your Walkman region. All over the world Sony sells different players which offer a slightly different sound? Maybe like fast food places offering local examples designed for the indigenous customers?
Anyway MrWalkman with the DMP-Z1 MK1 and MK2 is not offering just a retune of 3.02 or 3.01. It’s a whole new firmware which emulated the DMP-Z1 desktop. Though your right many don’t hear firmware, though there is no right or wrong, the thread is filled with converts.
