    so i tried 1z today , although it only had 15 hours (probably 0 on balanced) and FW 1.00 (demo in sony store)

    it was good , damn it was very good - even though not broken in i could instantly tell that it's more spacious/effortless/authoritative than wm1a

    i liked it a lot (unfortunately) but i can not afford nor justify a 2K buy for a 20% improvement over wm1a

    yet.

    This is why I stay away from things I can't afford but really want lol.

    My power button stopped working! It won't shut off or bring display back on. Now what?

    Nevermind. I held down for 8 seconds and it rebooted and is working properly again. THANK GOD!!!

    Believe me, it is not because it's a lack of wanting it.

    Well I saw Pink Floyd in 1988, and it was a great show and I'm of course glad I can say I saw Pink Floyd. But it wasn't the same band without Roger. I'm not really into any Floyd after The Final Cut. And, ironically I guess, I'm not real hot on that album or The Wall, either. Too much Roger in those last two albums, and obviously not enough once he was out. Just my opinion. My favorite Floyd stuff is live and my favorite live stuff is all from before 1973.

    did you try it finally ?

    wm1a is a very nice DAP , wm1z is better but not 2.5x better , more like 20% better (at best)

    i just put the DSEE option on wm1a and it sounds great , i think we are good with wm1a

    now if some rich uncle died and left us money well then yeah i would buy wm1z (and se6 and pw1960s 2-wire and dx208ti and you get my drift)
