    I have been living with the A45, and have always abhored the sound signature until I found out about this! Thank you for this!

    Now I quite appreciate the A45 with the 0EQ feature; added body, less thumpy, and no more of that piercing, thin upper range! What a treat!

    I have a Sony NW - WM1A and these two folders I'm putting in the music folder show up just fine on the player. However, on my Sony NW - A45 those same folders don't show up on the player. Does anybody on here have any ideas as to why?

    I'm not sure about the WM1A bit the A45 requires the files to be in a folder called "MUSIC" in the root directory of the SD card. If you already have that I don't know what the problem could be, sorry.

    I’m doing more and more BT listening via LDAC which is leading me to the question, am I waisting the 1Z and would something like the much, much cheaper A45 do just as good a job playing red book flac files ?

    If you're using bluetooth, I believe that means you're not using the DAC in the 1Z so I'd probably say the A45 better suits your needs in that regard

    That was also my conclusion so I’ve bought a cheap A45 to go with my 1000XM3 and it will fit nicely in the travel case. I’ll continue using my 1Z with cabled balanced headphones

    Received my A45 today and as I expected I’m unable to hear any difference between it and the 1Z when feeding the 1000XM3 over BT with LDAC. The gui and userexperience is identical. The A45 lacks BT receiver but has FM receiver. The A45 fits nicely in the case for the XM3.

    How much % difference is there between the A45 and the 1Z on cabled headphones?
  10. nc8000 Contributor
    No idea. Have not tried, have exclusively bought the A45 for ldac use to reduce my travel load

    Will the Sony NW-A45 work with the new Sandisk 1 tb card?
  12. nc8000 Contributor
    I expect so but don’t know

    Cards from basically any manufacturer work (even though Sony says they can't guarantee anything, I've found that SanDisk and Kingston cards work fine). It accepts any storage capacity up to 2 TB.

    LDAC is available on Android 8.0 and above.You don't need A45 or DAP for Bluetooth streaming.

    I have never had an Android device in my life, I’m totally in the iOS ecosystem, but thanks for the info
