    The going rate for used kidneys is $262,000.00. Don't sell yourself short.

    is that with or without anesthesia? I don't want my girl to suffer too much

    and with the extra cash she can take a few weeks off to recover

    She'll barely feel a thing. And, you should still have a couple of thousand left over after getting a HE1 Orpheus for every room of the house.

    I like your thinking, although the WM-1A will have to do till at least 4 (of 5) kids are through with college

    if i were you, I would buy the VN case and sell my other DAP

    your wallet (and your shoulders/arms) should get much stronger that way.

    I approve 100%

    that's where wifey draws the line...

    she is willing to take one for the team, but the kids are off limits

    I have some goals in mind for next year. When I get em done, I will get the DMP-Z1 to celebrate.
    Spending 8 grand on a player, when you say it out loud sounds pretty ridiculous still.
    Maybe the next WM1A successor will have some of that DMP Magic?

    I just demoed the Meze Empyreans and found that I still like my Shure SRH1540 headphones better. Just saying... I think finding proper synergies can save people a lot of money.

    It is soooooooo important to listen to DAPS/IEMS/Headphones for yourself, I have tried almost every iem under the tree, and I like my $900 planar single driver more than 3k electrostats.
    Too many people get influenced by other people's opinions, you like what you like, that's the only opinion that matters.
    Can't stress that enough.

    I totally agree. I realize that my LPG has greater resolution than my Sony NW-WM1A. However, I find myself listening to the Sony 80% of the time. There is more to musicality than resolution. I know objectively that the Sony doesn't sound as good as the LPG, but I still like the way the Sony sounds more for some bizarre reason. Can I explain it in words? No.

    Same here. I just recently had a chance to listen to a lot of different DAPs, including up the food chain (3k plus) and I liked the WM1A the most. Go figure..
    Synergy plays a big factor, but more than that, the Sony sound, it has that cohesiveness, there is more to music than simple technicalities. Firmware 3.01 to my ears is pretty damn impressive.
    My ears are pretty sensitive to instrument timbre, and sony gets this more right than anyone else. (In my opinion)
    Everything sounds like it should.

    I have my eye on the gold Sony because I heard that and loved it as well

    A much thicker Suede -Hide 3.5mm thickness for the 2nd hand sewn leather case. It also has Sling handles for sling bag carry-on purposes. The finishing on the leather is Alcantara like :D
