    So, 1.20 still the best?
    Haven't upgraded yet.

    I liked 1.20 in the past, then 2.0 a bit more but switching between them, 3.01 is my clear favourite now.

    Sound in 3.01 was definitely tuned for the better to my ears. More analogue, vinyl like but with great soundstage and detail.

    Correct, apologies if there was any ambiguity there...

    What cannot be confused is how much quicker the database creation is on 3.01fw - much improved :)

    Can confirm after changing from J to E region with no loss in hours played under Unit Information

    It stays until you factory reset the player to swap it to the zone... for those with a cap, they have to reset for it to stick, for those where the cap doesn’t apply, they are okay, I moved from J to E after my crazy mess up, but have never reset as all I needed was the language option to pop up :)

    I never had to do a factory reset after region change on my UK 1Z and have never heard of any who have done it

    Strange, it mentions in the instructions twice in big scary red text that this needs to be done.

    No harm done either way :)

    It certainly does, I just don’t remember doing it, but then again it has been nearly 2 years since I did the region change so I might just have forgotten that I did it

    Music must be inside a folder called music on the root to be read

    Hi all,

    Need some assistance please.
    In order for 1Z to be a Source to an external DAC, one must buy a cradle? Output of this cradle has Sony ip USB ONLY? Or some other different connector too?
    I have the Sony special USB adapter during the 1Z purchased, but I don't know how or what to use it for.

    And this cradle to be purchased, where? Not Amazon USA the last time I checked.

    Thank you for your time to respond to my questions.
