SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I have an “interesting” experience. One of the 2-pin connectors on my SuperBax cable had developed a loose connection so a friend of mine (the one who last year reterminated the cable to 4.4 mm) has replaced both 2-pin connectors with Idolic connectors. I use this cable with my JH13 ciem and the 1Z. After getting it back I now have to turn the volume on the 1Z to 70 where I used to be at 50 to get the usual loudness. My Z5 and Z1R are still at the volume they always have been at. Anybody have any idea why this is.

    My feeling as well,find myself lowering volume levels with 3.01.

    I initially tought of the same but i noticed that reverting back to 3.00 gave me the same results (louder output). Now i havent done any extensive forms of a/b testing like having 2 players on 3.00 and 3.01 respectively but i think its our brains adjusting to the sound levels right after not listing to music after a certain period of time due to the device updating firmwares. Feel free to ridicule my post hehe since thats one of the joys of this hobby :) being able to discuss our different opinions.

    Is that total playing time being reset after firmware upgrades or after reseting the device?

    Only after factory resets, but it does NOT include Bluetooth receiver usage

    Thank you for quick reply :gs1000smile:

    I just got a used WM1A. I want to compare with my Opus#2. One of them will go after comparing both.

    I am sure opus #2 will go 0_0

    :)

    WM1A should win by a huge margin to convince me leaving behind the streaming option of Opus#2.

    You could always stream from another device over BT to the 1A

    Sold both my hiby r6 and pioneer xdp 300r for the 1a best decision ever my zeus sounds heavenly now :wink:

    Tbh this is one of the best feature of the device before when i still had my 300r and r6 i was switching between the 2 due to streaming and watching youtube vids. R6 for streaming and 300r for watching vids. I rarely ever used my phone for those stuff.

    You may think using the 1a as a bt reciever is clunky but man its one of those things that you never knew you needed until u have it lol
