Sony does not appear to make any statements on re tuning the sound signature for every update only features and UI improvements. It makes more sense to me that if they believed that had improved the sound would they not make a fuss about it?
I recal iBasso saying that the sound changes in new fw versions for their daps where not intentional but simply side effects

Does AVLS (Volume Limit) effect sound quality?
It doens’t effect the sound signature but it quiets down louder tracks and normalizes the volume. The thing is it makes some normal volume songs sound even softer and therefore i didn’t like using it.

It will affect the dinamic range.. since you will have less volume the driver wont get to its full range so you will get less diference between peaks and subtle notes, as a result of less volume for me it will affect sound quality only in that regard, if you refer to the clarity it wont be afected.. it may help your hearing dough!

Does wm1a have line output?
I'm thinking of using wm1a as a sound source.
Instead of my diy linux player and topping d30.

regards,
Simon

no it doesn't have line out. You must use other SE pr 4.4 balanced at high volume.

:confused: hmm....so this mean double amplifiering?
Yes it does but Sony claims that their amplification is so clean that it doesn’t matter. WMport used to have analoug out but that has been dropped for years

Not as such and will be most usefull if you use playlists where you want equal volume on all songs. I normally play a full album in its intended order and as such AVLS will destroy any difference in volume the artist have intended, especially with a lot of classical music
