    Hey that's pretty nice! Might order it if I can't find anything thinner.

    I've rounded up a few that others might be interested in, but I found to be a bit thick. There's an angled cable made by Sony, which looks nice, but the y-split seems chunky.

    There are two variants of it:

    This one is pretty

    A cheaper black version

    A couple budget options:

    This one is interesting. Not sure on the quality for price though

    This one isn't opening any specific item for some reason.

    I would recommend the Onso cables, the overall quality is excellent compared to the $$$.
    You con find several versions at a cheaper price on amazon jp.

    I don't have an answer, all I can report is that I have the same issue using my WM1A and a Audioengine B2 Bluetooth speaker. Like you I tried 'Enhanced Mode' along with every available BT mode with no resolution...
     
  5. Hoka Hey

    I’ve got this one. Very good quality, reasonable price. Not super thin, but comfortable enough. Doesn’t tangle, no microphonics. Acoustune is a Japanese subdivision of the same company that owns/developed the Pentacon 4.4, Nippon DICS.

    Hmmm, I have audioengine hd3 and hd6 connect to BT just fine with my 1A v2.0 here. I will try again tonight with the current firmware.

    Bluetooth works fine on both HD6 and HD3 but can't control volume no matter what I do. Speakers are auto connected in aptX mode and I also try SBC.
    SQ is better then v2.0 firmware in BT mode btw. But still, balanced output is much better.

    Thanks RobertP and wakajazz for confirming.

    Apologies for bumping my own post, but I'm hoping it might catch the eye of someone who has insight into how you might change the volume when playing over bluetooth. The "Use Enhanced Mode" checkbox in "Audio Device Connection Settings," says, "Select this check box if you cannot change the volume," which I guess means that it will then allow you to do so (although the way it's written doesn't actually promise that), but it doesn't really seem to do anything. Whether or not it's checked, I can push volume up/down and a "+" or "-" appears in the upper right of the screen, and sometimes when I press or hold "-," the WM1A mutes (whether I need to press it or hold it seems random), and then I can turn the sound back on by pressing "+."

    Could this be a bug in the firmware? I know this is the case with 2.0 and 3.01 (never tried 3.0).

    That's interesting. I have a Naim Mu-So Qb and Soundfreq Sound Rise clock/radio and it doesn't work on either. I wonder what makes it work on some and not on others. Like I said in my original post, my iPhone has no problem with this, so it's a little disappointing if the WM1A can only change volume with some speakers.

    Back to normal wired listening, trying my DSD rips, sound so good
