Sounds the same to me, What i do notice is a noticable more snappy experience in the UI. Everything runs smoother and faster. The bluetooth function is quite nice with no major lag. Not tried the usb dac feature yet.

After the update, zeus+wm1a is just so perfect! Though it might need a bit bump in bass since i noticed that the new update made the bass much leaner.

For those who wants to display cover art for files like wav dff etc, you need to place the picture (baseline jpg or non-interlace png, no larger than 4096 px x 4096 px) in the folder and then rename the cover art file with the same name as the folder. Once you've done that it will show up.
Works for FLAC? To avoid transferring the cover embedded in t he file?

Did everyone back up their music folders to their PC? More importantly, has anyone suffered any corrupted music files while upgrading? Thanks!

Ohh.. the new FW has made the WM1Z less warm, less bassy, wider soundstage. The Z1R + WM1Z combo sounds more palatable now. First impressions, the WM1Z & the TA-ZH1ES sounds closer now

Ah wait i take it back on some tracks it sounds abit laidback while on some its quite forward, for treble heavy tracks it sounds abit more forward.
Ya i think some of my songs female vocal sounds not as laid back as fw 2.0

I love this update 3.0.

Overall i find fw3.0 more refined for WM1A.

Just tried it for FLAC and it works :) why can't they just use cover.jpg :/ (maybe in v4.0)
I understand the reason, if you use the same filename it's can cause trouble.
I use MusicBee for my syncing now and the program allows you to specify how to name the cover art file, a couple of clicks later and I'm done.
