    Which Vinyl selection do you like? Standard? Arm Resonance? Turntable Resonance? or Surface Noise?

    When disconnecting USB DAC the database no longer does a rescan

    Standard. As a matter of fact, FW 3.01 really bring out the necessary amount of base, and I equally like the Direct too.
    I haven’t try other choices of Vinyl selection, likely is not my prefer. Right amount of quality and quantity of base is key to make the sound musically pleasant.

    No crash so far with 3.01, seems a bit faster on screen render

    all my DSD files play fine, I have only 2.8224 and 5.6884 MHz files

    It's unbelievable that all my complaints with 3.0 were fixed with this update, namely:

    - No crashes so far
    - Faster database building (fastest so far)
    - No more mandatory database building after turning off USB-DAC
    - Just a tad warmer, yet still clean sound

    I don't think they can ever top this one. Good job Sony, good job!

    Yes I have used it intensly for 3 days and no crashes. Initial database build after the upgrade still took about 20 minutes but rescan after adding 30 new tracks only took 4-5 minutes. I can't imagine anything Sony could do to make it better now

    I am giving my WM1A a test with 3.01, seems like more clarity on top end. Maybe allucinating, after not using it for a week (been busy with wedding paper work here in Wiesbaden
