    Hi, recently I bought DragonFly Red (DFR) to pair with my HD650.

    However, I have encounter problem (no sound) when I connect my WM1A to DFR via sony wmc nwh10 (WMPort - USB Male cable). Even though the WM1A screen shown USB Audio, but there's no sound , what could be the problem?

    The Sony OS has no volume control for USB digital output so don't use it with DFR. You are fortunate that it didn't default to 100% volume.

    My intention was to use it as headphone amp to drive HD 650.

    Regardless, there is no way to control the DFR volume from the WM1a so it won't work.

    Well looks like you will have to get another source then. I would have imagined that the Sony would do at least as good if not better than the Dragonfly, especially if you go balanced out and you are waisting all the qualities of the Sony by just using it as a digital transport, much cheaper units would do just as good in that role like a Sony A30 or A40 (except they also can’t control the volume) or many other brands

    1Z has Bluetooth, both as sender and receiver. It does not have wifi for streaming though.

    Is anybody using the Fatbear Sony case? Does it seem to protect it while from scratches?

    Silicone or leather? What best protects the DAP?

    Best ? Just don’t ever touch it :wink: frame it in the wall and leave it be.

    Joking....I used TPU Benk case and it was awesome
