    Should be ok provided the cable is a balanced and not a single ended one

    The dual adapter was made by @Whitigir and the other cable is one of the sony MUC series cables

    This shouldnt be used unless the iem cable is terminated into 3.5 trrs, i think if used with normal 3.5 trs cable it might cause a short circuit.

    What do you mean by, i almost fully charged it :D

    Either you did or did not, charge it till it says FULL,
    It takes around 4 hours for me i guess.

    But as long as the battery is not full, i think the experiment is not complete .. also that with battery care on or off ? And what kind of library, hi res only or mp3 , mixed ?

    Dear kingdixon,
    Almost full means around 3.5 hours of charge. It didn't say full, so I guess just a little bit and I would have been there.

    Battery care: off.

    No mp3, just flacs and dsd.

    But you're right, I should run the experiment appropriately.

    Thanks!

    Well buddy,

    Only dsd and flac, your getting 20 hours with a missing half hour charge, i am pretty sure the battery is fine, according to sony estimations dsd only deplete battery in around 15 hours and flac only around 28 hours, so if your playing both with a 30 min missing battery charge, in average i think it is fine.

    Update on my wm1a repair. Sent it in last week for a faulty 4.4 connector and will have my new replacement in on Tues. Thought it would take a month but only a week. Cant wait.

    To those who've run the rockbox destination tool on your WM1(A/Z) to change it to English, what destination code is best? I just opened my Japanese WM1A tonight, it's charging now. I want to make sure playlists and remote control are available. I know this is an issue with the zx300 b/c it doesn't have these features on all models so "E" is the preferred destination instead of "U." Same with the WM1? Or is "U" ok?

    I changed my WM1A from "U" to "E" in order to gain remote control function.

    I thought the JDM version has no English menu?

    What I needed to know. Thanks!

    AFAIK, once I set a new destination (E), it will.

    EDIT: Yep. Success.

    Sony might cook up something for 2019, the 40th anniversary of the Walkman.

    However if history repeats itself, usually Sony would go all out during the high noon phase of a product cycle, then they will never top it again as it moves toward the sunset phase. The technology will keep moving but in terms of product grade level it probably has already reached plateau, unless some technological leap happens.
