Only reason I doubt that is because neither the wm1a nor the 1z are very powerful either. Sony dap have enough power for most iems and THEIR headphones. Overall sound signature over power, no worry about him on anything sensitive. It is what it is, but that has BEEN Sony's stanceIt’s just annoying because Sony could of easily implemented a more powerful chip given its price. I can only sumise that this was strategic to build up to another flagship but what people don’t understand is that the chip contributes to a comfortable listening experience. If the hardware can’t keep up you’re fighting a loosing battle. The ZX507 just about makes the cut imo.
