SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Very little if any (to my ears) difference in sound. I use it to allow some of my more stubborn gear to play nice with the 1A

    Hmm strange cause lot of people claim a good feedback.

    More warmth and tube sound. Some say its slightly low mid and high mid forward...
    And pairs nicely with sonys daps.
    And the balance output is really cool. Making your sound tubey and balanced hmmm.


    I had this idea to with BA300S or woo audio wa8...

    I have the WM1A and BA300S combo - there's definitely a notable difference in sound with the BA300s. Everything has more impact and clarity. Tubey and balanced, indeed. I tend not to use it with IEMs, but with my LCD2C and Campfire Cascade, it's a super pairing. I'd recommend it. Plus, although it's warm, it does not detract from the signature of the WM1A. Give it a whirl if you get a chance.

    Thanks thats good exactly what I presuming.

    How about treble does get even smoother or slightly reduced?

    I plan going 1z + ba300s + ier-z1r that in balanced should be a killer setup frankly and its portable!

    I just order the NW-Wm1A, it gets here on Wednesday.

    Does anyone knows of a budget 4.4mm blanched cable MMCX? And one for the KZ AS10?

    Thanks!

    No, it’s brand new. The official price here is $700 USD, but you can find it cheaper in some places, I got it for $640 USD.

    Check Effect Audio, they just introduced the vogue line, the copper cable start at $99 and the overall quality is better than the Sony one.

    Thanks! I’ll have a look.

    Already bought the cables, thanks!

    Another question, I want to use it as a digital transport, should I invest in the Dock and connect it via USB to a regular DAC, or should I buy a wireless DAC that accepts LDAC Bluetooth? Does such a thing even exists?

    Thanks again.
