    One way of cramming more music into theselimited-storage devices, convert Hi-res tracks to 16/44.1 (while retaining originals)

    No, only micro SD

    Yeah, I've noticed.
    Was chatting with a friend about this. The topic was cable rolling.
    We can quite easily walk into one of a few diff stores and just try a variety of cables with our preferred iems, get bored and hit another store in another part of town in 15min. In an afternoon you can hit 3 maybe 4 stores and listen till you're totally confused and fatigued.
    And along the way you'll bump into people who have a number of diff players you can chat with.
    At MS, for instance, it's like a WM1 club, lots of 1As and 1Zs among the regulars. Very eye opening to drop by and get poisoned by cables and other niceties.

    Happens to me too. First world problems. There once was a time when we had to get up off the sofa and flip the record just to hear the other half of the album.

    What's a destination tool?

    That was a dangling bit of text leftover from a post I didn't have to make last night. I just got my WM1A, and it's a Japan model. I had to use the Rockbox destination tool to change the region so my OS would be in English.

    Sony Walkman 40th anniversary might be the successor of wm1a/1z release.
    A poster might be right

    Where do you see these rumors? Your Google-fu must be many levels higher than mine. I can't find anything on this Sony 40th Anniversary Walkman.

    I reckon it'll be a good excuse to get a new toy.

    Hello I am a happy new owner of a WM1Z (still waiting for my balanced cable) :)
    I'd like to use Sense Me, but after installing the "Sense Me Setup" software by clicking on this option in the WM1Z menu, I can't get the function to work properly. It scans the about 7000 flac files (plus a few DSD) already on the Sony (with drag and drop), at the beginning slowly, then very fast. But when it's finished, the DAP tells "all the files could not be analysed", and Sense Me Station shows me only a dozen of files...
    How should I proceed ?
    Could someone get it to work properly with a large amount of FLAC files ?

    Thank your for your help :)

    Never used it. Don't know what it does.
    Still enjoy my WM1A though.

    Nothing has been announced yet, it is pure speculation based only on Sony track record. Jason has mentioned that something is coming but that he can’t talk about it yet

    Even a non gold colored z1 is enough to tempt me....

    I think the files have to be processed/analyzed by the Sony software on a computer first

    That's not what Sense Me said in his message, but maybe I should try it this way...
