SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    It’s a Musical Fidelity X-Can V1 or V2 if it is the one in the picture. It is an 10-15 year old design but one that lends itself to loads of mods

    Thanks. I got confused because it looks like there is something connected between the WM1A and the Musical Fidelity X-Can? Is there and how would it perform without it? Thanks again

    Musical Fidelity X-Can V2. I bought it on ebay 2 or 3 years ago for 70 something dollars, but it's as desktop amp however it's still not as heavy as WM1Z

    Oh that's energizer for Shure KSE1200 that I'm using.

    This has probably been discussed already, but do we know if we'll get an update to the WM series later this year? What things would you want in the WM2A and WM2Z (Assuming that's what they'll be called)? I know many dislike the WM port but IMO I don't mind it that much, not to mention if it's switched to USB-C we may no longer get that long battery life we get with Sony DAPs. Just a speculation of mine.

    Can anyone recommend a small portable amp that takes WM1A to WM1Z or Calyx M levels? Thanks.

    I’ve not compared it to the 1Z or the Calyx, but I’ve connected the Monoprice AAA THX to the 1A with great results and the Little Bear B4 Tube amp with good results.

    Which «level » are you talking about...?
    Otherwise you have the Oriolus BA300S : perfect !

    So I have been switching back and forth between Direct source, and Direct Source off (but with all DSP options turned off).
    Direct source seems to have a higher mid bass response and is lower on microdetails.

    Direct source off, is this the Sony house sound?

    Is there any measured spec on the channel separation for the WM1A?

    I tried to log-in to the accessory Jack website but they seem to have deleted my account after two years of no purchases or no login. Any ways I created a new one

    Could somebody please post a very close up pic of the 1A/1Z Pentaconn 4.4 plug? It seems the edge of the Pentaconn plug it’s not perfectly smooth in the Sonys I have had at hand and I want to check it. I have read some posts in this thread confirming this issue with pics showing it but I can’t find them.
    Thanks!

    On my 1Z the brass rings on both the 4.4 and 3.5 are probably about 1mm raised above the the top of the player and then the rim of the actual plug holes are again a fraction raised above the brass rings

    Does anyone have a link to what exactly the DSP options like the various DC phase linearizer settings do? Sony's answers in the manual are a little vague.
