    You nailed it 100% on vocal presentation on 1.2. It is really special. That one thing alone makes me want to stick to 1.2 . That and deep bass. On k10 with lionheart and 1z it is simply divine and musical

    Really? Downgrade firmware will reset the audio played time? Please correct me.

    Downgrade firmware need not factory reset or wiped clean?

    I think you might have to do a factory reset if you go back to some of the early versions but I have not tried to do this. The only time I’ve gone back was from 3.0 to 2.0 and I don’t think I did a factory reset there

    You need to wipe if you want to downgrade to 1.2

    3.01 and 3.02 differences.
    I am using a warmer IEM Acoustune 1650CU, 1x Dynamic Driver.

    Tonality I prefer 3.01.
    Imaging, soundstage(front to back) is better on 3.02.
    Agreed that sub-bass have been increased. For my IEM which have plenty bass, it increases it which not good for some songs. For people who using a setup and wants more bass could try it.

    Highs have little increase probably to equalize the amount of bass.

    Piano songs are good on 3.02.

    3.02 is good if you are always outside, noisy environments, but in quiet environment you might felt too much.

    Line out is analogue not digital, in the A1/Z1 that's why it's difficult to matchDACs and AMPs normally they have a digital line out which then goes into the DAC to be converted.

    yes and your point is ?

    The L27 goes to the digital port to a micro usb, the question is if you can transport some DSD. What do you think?
