SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    That is a terrible malady. Sell both to get the WM1Z?
    A year ago, I had a terrible yearning for the Z. But it's weight was a serious deal breaker since I take my player everywhere.
    Got the A, grew to love it very quickly and after I got the Proj K mod done, never thought about the Z again.
    Been seeing some good deals for a Z popping up and have been tempted again, but I just KNOW I'll not take it out with me as much on account of the weight.
    And if I wanted something to be used at home, there's the DMP to consider... :beyersmile: Yeah, right! That's so way out of my league!

    Once you crave the Sony house sound, there is nothing like it. Your rabbit holes is just beginning.....and don’t ever try that DMP....LOL

    Wow, I never considered that!!

    Even the Wm1A Built Quality is better than GT, again...except the power output. The price for WM1Z is just right for it Built quality, the 1A is a bargain for it Built quality.

    I had plan to modify a WM1A to perform even better than WM1Z stock, but I never executed it as I crave more power. I was about to lose my mind , but DMP came out and the price tag “stunt” me for a while, then I woke up and the next thing I know....

    I always keep my players because I have the small problem of schizophrenic ears. I go weeks with just absolutely hating the way my Paw Gold sounds, and then all the sudden it just sounds great. I do have to admit the 1A is the player that I like most consistently. I also love my QP1R on occasion. Very strange thing but it's like my ears get in the mood for different sound signatures, and then move on to the next.

    I am staying away from that one purposefully.

    I am not familiar with that mod, but I assume it really improved it for you.

    Expensive in relation to other things, definitely not. The month time is assuming EMS to Canada Post.

    LOL she might given the number of IEMs I jumped around in the last month if not for the 1k cable.

    What’s the amp - I guess ? - on the right of the table beside the DMP1Z please ?
    Thanks

    That is actually a linear power supply :)

    Thank you :slight_smile:

    Maybe Sony are planning a DAP that uses some of the technology from the DMP. I know desk top gear is superior but part of the appeal of owning a portable player is being able to walk around, do jobs etc with all my music to hand.
    The WM1Z is a few years old now, might it be worth waiting for the next generation player which shouldn't be far off? Have you listened to the QP2R?
    Also I've wondered about buying a player that's been in a shop for a few years would the battery have degraded?

    I don't think it's a case of schizophrenic ears, I think it's more environmental changes that causes hearing changes. Temperature, humidity and your health (allergies, colds, infections) effects it.
