    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.

    Agree, I cannot detect any change in sound quality.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
