    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?
     
  4. aceedburn
    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.

    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

    They sound identical to me and I know my 660S very well.
