    I've experienced the freezing restart rebuilding of db twice. Never had a problem on 2.0. Anyone have any thoughts about why this happens?

    Anyone knows an Apple Lightning to Sony WM-Port cable? Theoretically since we now have our favorite player acting as a DAC, I think it should be doable with a single cable right?
    For Streaming service it might be just the perfect solution for iOS owners.

    Same here. I keep looking at reviews and impressions and can not get the Sony out of my head. I was set on adding the mojo with my hiby r3 and just calling it a day, but I think I'm going to grab a 1a. The 1z is a stretch even with a couple nice deals in the classifieds

    Hi. About three weeks ago the colombian Sony store had a sale and I got a brand new WM1A in $500!. I'm so happy with it as DAP and USB Dac. As Dac I'm using it with HQplayer Desktop in my MacBook pro combined with Roon and my Tidal Hifi plan.

    That price is amazing. I won't hold my breath on any deals anywhere close to that, even with the holidays coming.

    Yes, sounds great passing to my old Marantz SR4002

    is it even possible? this is the message I get both on an iPhone X and iPad mini 4 when connecting to my WM-1A ( and yes the USB DAC charging option is set to off)

    Thanks for testing the dongle way :)

    The DAP is not in DAC mode here right?
    Does the DAP exits the DAC mode when you plug it in the ios device?

    Silly me... I did not have the DAC out engaged (thanks for the reminder) this is as short as I can go on the cable. would be much more convenient to have a single cable though

    What screen brightness level are people using? I feel like 50 gets a bit dark in sunlight, and 58 is better for artwork clarity, thoughts?
