    1A user. Can confirm the firmware 2.0 have bigger soundstage and highs.

    My new DD IEM really benefits from the space.

    updated to 2.0 on the WM1A at 113 hrs burn in and the sound is just melting me. soundstage definitely is wider. detail is improved. there seems to be more texture/body to the music. the layering seems more refined, and the treble seems to have been tamed somewhat. sounds more balanced now across the spectrum, more musical even. i reset the eq to all 0s just to test how balanced the sound was after the update and I could actually listen to the music that way with basically no fatugue (this was my main gripe when I owned this DAP previously). also i noticed the phase linearizer settings make a more intense change to the sound now as opposed to when that setting is off. the sound i was getting was great on 1.20. now it's just ridiculous. kudos Sony. you done good

    It seems to me that many of you are making me very guilty of getting the ZX300, instead of getting the WM1A, that I have made the wrong choice. Should I sell my Zx300 and join the club.:yum:

    All I need for it to do is play music, no streaming, no DAC, no EQ and no BT. just play good quality music. I do have less than a month for my visit to Japan, may be if I have enough cash spare, i'll pick one up.

    Sounds like you will need Wm1z :D. I know just the exact thing you don’t need in zx300, DAC, and it is wasted :wink:

    If anyone is interested, the Benks case fits like a glove and it includes a tempered glass screen protector.
