    You are the only one who can answer this question. Other people's opinion is meaningless, and also, many people are very happy with using Direct, or with some of the Sony sound options enabled. I personally have used both, and am happy with both ways. But will you be happy? Nobody can answer that question. Of course you may just be asking a rhetorical question, not expecting an answer. In that case, this is a good "no answer"!

    No you dont have to burn in again its a capacitor thing only if you never used balanced then if you start using it it begins from 0 since diferent capacitors...

    Most of my music is 16/44.1" the rest ist 24/44.1 to 24/192 and DSD 2.8MHz. Been using the direct source most of the time, a few times I use the DSEE HX string, DC phase linearizer and vinyl turn table or arm resonance

    I had 2.0 for a long time and liked it , got curious and went for 3.01 and it's ok (3.0 was awful)

    plus i am using its DAC mode for my 24/96 albums on my 4 TB external disc - a very nice feature

    lol thanks for the reply maybe the worst part of 2.0 its the lack of resolution vs 3.01 and slower bass and worst stage but 2.0 is chilled and relaxed 3.01 its more analitical bass is thumping on 2.0 vs deeper on 3.01 its a tough choice dough couse some of my iems sound piercing on 3.01 not the bassy ones of course...

    thanks! 3.01 maked me remember when i bought WM1A and it had no burning... maybe that is sony intended signature... I spended a lot more time on both now it will be awesome to hear some more opinions, it will be awesome if 3.02 had more thumping bass option via tone arm resonance, same awesome stage and a little deeper bass.. im guessing 2.0 had some of the vinil procesor embeded to it, if you listen carefully on 2.0 its like tone resonance its on... all the time vs. 3.01 you can disable the thing but bass for my taste gets laking i guess they embeded vinyl sound signature all the way from 1.20 and up.. I guess 1Z must be the perfect machine for this update but not 1A since i like a little more bass control.

    How to do that?

    install 3.01 , select dac mode and connect your wm1a with the usb cable provided(the one to transfer files) to your laptop/pc

    then just select/play the files on your pc/lptop's music player program (like foobar 2000) and hear via wm1a

    I am intending to buy the upcoming 1TB sandisk microsd card for my 1Z. I like to hear from anyone who may get it before me how it works and what format should we do with the card to make it runs better in the 1Z. So so excited to have a 1.256 TB 1Z.
