    Isn't the 12 tone analysis done on the original file on the media go database ? I thought walkman no longer carried the s scanning.

    Have no idea how it works and never used media go.

    I think the reason why it is taking long is your file aren't getting scanned by your walkman, after reading, the SenseMe data is created by Media Go/Music Center, and upon syncing those data, walkman uses those data to create SenseMe playlist.

    Makes Sense to Me LOL

    I don't know if I want to mess with Media Go. I just use iTunes to manage all my playlists and export into my 1z.

    Pls help, my wm1z cannot play DSD..... I’ve tested multiple versions of firmware and have done hard reset. And all music files are in “MUSIC” folder.
     
  6. Whitigir
    What DSD are you trying to play ? And are you using 4.4mm ? DSD is only able to play back from 4.4mm
     
  7. rwproaudio
    4.4 balanced, about 70% of my FLAC files plays fine which is odd......
     
  8. rwproaudio
    Just to rule out any corrupted file, I actually tested the sample DSD track, and my 1z freezes

    They play dsf but not dff files

    Dsd plays not matter which output but it is only 4.4 that does native, 3.5 converts to pcm

    Yes, that is a more accurate ways to put it.

    The funny thing when we complain about zx2 and or WM converting back to PCM from Native DSD...Chord and MScaler argues the opposite and still selling :wink:
     
  12. rwproaudio
    Looks like I have one of those “lucky” wm1z, ive tested multiple versions of firmware, and the dsf samplers don’t even play.....would be a hard fight to get a warranty repair without receipt, anyone has experience with Sony servicing wm1a/1z?

    Finally, I found my most preferred sound singanture for my 1Z together with the Z1R headphone+Sony Kimbler cable ... it is Vinyl of FW 3.01 .
    It is musical, right amount of warm, right amount of clear bass, non fatique treble, overall clear natural relaxing sound.
    I strongly suggest those who currently remain like the FW 1.20, should try this latest FW3.01 Vinyl selection.

    Honestly, I just came from 1.2 and I feel like 3.01 has really good bass but its cleaner. I didn't like 3.0 but I'm enjoying this.

    Did you try to reset to factory settings from the device settings ?

    Also, do you mean by the dsf samples, the ones that come preinstalled on the device ?
