    Cool, thanks for confirming. We just need a nice manufactor to get us a proper MFI Certified (if it applies here) Lightning to WM-Port :)

    is this short enough? after this mornings experiment I decided to look through some cables I had lying around and I found this little gem from Forza Audioworks. Not even sure if they make this anymore

    What cables are needed to use an iPhone? I have a WMC-NW10 cable I assume I can't use that with a Apple lightning to USB cable correct?

    Really cool! That is I think about short enough.
    You customized it right? The closest I can find on their website is https://forzaaudioworks.com/en/product.php?id_product=97

    Apple Lightning CCK connected to a short USB micro cable and then the Sony Walkman USB micro adapter.

    it all works, now that I have been reminded to turn the USB DAC on that is. if you check up a post or two I have unearthed a short apple mfi certified lightning to USB micro adapter that really shortens things up

    that is the one, but the picture shows it with the Pyre hybrid cable. mine is the OCC cable

    So the sony usb micro adapter (WNP-NWM10) had to be used with an iDevice? not the lightning CCK and the stock Sony USB cable? I use that with my Macbook so I know that works.
     
  9. captblaze
    it works that way also

    Yes - the last few posts are starting to confuse me as well.
    I am currently (successfully) using the supplied Sony USB cable which came with my 1Z and simply plugging it into the Apple CCK cable which then goes into my iPhone.

    The WMC-NWH10 cable listed above - what is the point? It simply looks like a shorter version of the supplied cable which came with the 1Z

    WMC - NWH10 is used to digital out from. The wm1 Walkman to an external DAC, so it acts as a transport

    It is new music Tuesday for me on the NW-WM1A...

    Got it
    So the cable supplied with the 1Z will bring a digital signal from an iPhone INTO the Walkman

    allow me to straighten up any confusion from yesterday's demo. My purpose was to show (after a question was posed) if there was a single cable alternative to setting up the WM-1A USB DAC with an iPhone as the transport. Unfortunately I forgot to engage the USB DAC function so my first post was a fail. after being made aware of the mistake I went on to correct it and subsequently I posted more configurations.

    image #1 shows all the cables I used throughout
    image #2 shows the first config (albeit a fail until the DAC function was enabled)
    image #3 shows the config using the included charge cable
    image #4 shows how short I can take it with one cable and one adapter

    sorry for the confusion and I hope that clears things up
    also... WMC - NWH10 is a totally different kind of cable than what I was using in the demo
