    Hope the new fw fixes the crashes

    Anybody feels that FW3.0 reduces the standby time?

    What do you mean by standby time?

    I never had any, but I hope it fixes it for anyone who had them

    I never off the DAP. Battery went totally dead today. Charged to 90% and with total usage about 2 hours on the 30th last month. Has been working at home lately so been using my desktop amp with headphones. Used to last more than 2 weeks on standy... now it's less.

    Yes, it’s a snap now!

    I’m basically saying using either Sony player.... but having maybe an IEM for EDM and a separate IEM for rock. But if someone was into Classical and Jazz, they may find having two IEMs would be a much easer goal than endless searching for the perfect IEM, which obviously does not exist. But I agree the Sony players are well rounded and do it all. Cheers!

    As far as I can hear I don't hear a difference other than a much quicker database; but you never know we have people out there who are professional at listenning to all the fine details and sometimes they may even have special tools that can analyse that for us. Let's wait and see.

    Have a quick question on servicing the WM1. Has anyone had experience servicing an export WM1 from Japan and any experience servicing a modded WM1?

    Wondering whats the process for servicing (hopefully never) the WM1 in Japan for an overseas user and if any further issues with a modded version.

    I would bet this was no more than one line of code change. I'm fairly certain that 3.0 firmware did a full database indexing whereas 3.1 only indexes new files added since that last scan. Basically incremental scan versus full.

    Using only the Vinyl processor sound effect on standard and no other effects active I believe to notice slightly more bass impact with my 1Z/Z5 on 3.01 vs 3.0.

    Did a quick test on a Wm1Z. Internal memory has 213GB and the 400GB microSD has 202 GB on it. Removed the SD card, wait for the rebuild to finish, then inserted the SD card in. Took just under 4 minutes to build the database for the SD card. Then powered down/up. Database rebuild finished in about 55 secs. So yes, it does not rebuild the full database if there have been no changes. Don't know if it is smart enough to only index new files after that. But not a main worry, as now it can be powered down if people w ant to, without needing a long wait for rebuild on power up.
