SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I'd like to share with you guys some photos of WM1Z and Final Sonorous X for a good weekend :) Cables used are: Final silver coated OFC upgrade cable and 20-core pure silver Lavricable (unique, there's no way to normally do 20 cores for Sonorous, had to order special plugs straight from Final). WM1Z looks really nice with golden S-X. Enjoy!

    It is very slightly diference not a very pronounced effect it depends on your iem capacity also as others has stated try Type A Low and strings vs the rest i really notice that combo and Arm resonances changes the bass a lot

    today I had a glass half full moment regarding Sony's new firmware and being able to rollback. I own many devices that are dependent on firmware to function properly. most are set to prevent rollback once applied. this means try at your own peril for there is no rollback.

    Sony on the other hand has chosen to allow rollback on firmware as long as you are willing to forgo any added features or improvements. That to me is a bonus because I am one of those that just has to try and at least Sony hasn't decided to punish those like me for wanting to try.

    That is my glass half full moment for today... Thank you Sony

    I agree apple sucks in that sense i stopped buying their products after they decide to impose customers what is better for them... will keep it that way... I think sony should go further and let us decide what stage/ bass do we really need im happy on 1.2 atm when i get tired of it i will get to 2.0 if they may allow me to preserve its stage on 2.0 i will be even happier and if i could preserve some of 2.0 bass in 3.0 i will be happier! not everyone has sony iems or really expensive iems.. i gues sony bet is that are forced to go balanced wich is a good thing but expensive..

    wm1a on 2.0 hits my sweet post with Zeus XR , after 1700 hours i am still in love with this DAP

    i guess 3.0 will be perfect with a more veiled/rolled off iem , so just play with FWs and keep the one you like best - this is definitely a synergy/personal taste thing

    The 3.0 update does not lack bass at all with EQ settings turned on. I do notice difference with linear PCM and vinyl processor, it takes time to perfect the Custome EQ settings. They do need an update to 3.1 as the creating database everytime it’s turned on drains the battery playback, it should only be done once.

    Change your linear PCM and vinyl settings you’ll notice on one them has bass slam, suited to pop music.
