sr15 has Tidal etc...so if you are into Tidal etc might be a better choice....

also if you have 2.5 cables etc it will be convenient..

İ just order sr15 for mobile use vs my 1z which is at my home, safe and secure....
well thats the thing, its purely for outside mobile use to and fro from work and school and home.
at home i have a dedicated setup, soon im gonna be getting my RME ADI-2 DAC :) so excited for that!

SR15 for full sized headphones? Are you trying to tickle me?
no im being serious :frowning2:
when i work out at home or wanna sit next to the window and relax with a cuppa. i'd like to still be able to wear my full sized headphones around the house. like my DT1990 Pros.
i asked in the SR15 thread and a rep and some ppl said it can drive DT1770 Pros and HD660S. (sens being balanced with the balanced output) and thats not bad for a small little player.
Im sure the Sony WM1A can drive DT1990 Pros and even LCD2C or LCD-Xs?

Yes just tested LCD2C with WM1A via balanced, high gain and volume at 70/120. Volume at 90 /120 and high gain for Eikon. Sounds even better with DC phase linearizer, DSEE HX and Vinyl processor.

Hey guys, I noticed something using the 1A with balanced output wired to Sony MDR-1ADAC or MDR-100aap: when swithching from any HR song (mostly MQA 96 kHz) to any FLAC (44.1 kHz/16 bit) or back, there is a small noise (like when you plug the speaker to sound system).

Does anyone else have experienced this? Could it be that my headphones are not "truly balanced"?

It’s the switch between the 2 clocks, it’s mechanical relays

My bottlehead Crack Powers my HD650s much louder than my Sony NW - WM1A, but I just love the way my Sennheiser headphones sound out of the Sony. Seems a fuller more three-dimensional sound.

Feature request, Sony.

1. Search bar. I'm an Asian user but really English keyboard is all I need. So don't worry about multilingual, English is better than nothing.

2. Read file meta in the background so I can browse by folder immediately after swapping in a new card. Similar to how AK does it. With the wide availability of 512gb card these days, I literally have to wait 20 minutes to play music every time I insert a new card. Not acceptable.

3. It's stupid that I lose my playlists when I swap a card out. How about putting a place holder there even when the file path does not exist, an prompt "file not found" when I click on it? Similar to how lotoo does it.

Hey guys, i wasnt able to buy the SR15 norma from A&K because of A&K having supplier issues. this in turn as aggravated me because of all the running around.

Now! im going to be making the choice, which DAP in your opinion is more worth the money in terms of powering headphones and sound, the Sony WM1A or the Sony ZX300?

headphones i use daily:
Beyerdynamic DT1990 Pro
Bang and Olufsen H6 (2nd Gen)
Bower and wilkins P7 (wired)

headphones im borrowing and i might end up buying based on if the DAP can handle them.
Audeze LCD2C
Audeze LCD-X
Focal Elegia

PS: I dont use IEMs, i'll never use IEMs because i dont like how they fit in my ear and fall out all the time, i also dont find it comfortable sticking something in my ear.

if you have a set of well fitting customs headphones seem like a chore while out and about (especially mowing the grass or shoveling snow).
