SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    if it were not for the battery I would say that 1Z and other walkmans that use Sony UI will outlive android walkmans as they need constant updating.

    Heck, even the older Sony walkmans of 2000s sell pretty well on eBay considering they retailed for $200-$300 back then.

    No. I have done it atleast 5 times now. Factory reset does. I just downgraded to 1.2 from 3.01 and my hrs remain. The only thing you lose when you downgrade to 1.2 are your bookmarks. That doesn’t happen from 3.02 to 3.01 or 2

    Can I just I'm falling in love? Now that my 1A is on Fw 1.2, I can literally feel what singers were try to express. Even music instruments could give me chills. Just close my eyes and forget about the world.

    I must say all this 1.2 love makes me want to give it a shot! Has anyone noticed any changes to battery performance with the older (or newest) firmwares?

    Would the W1MZ be able to power an Abyss Diana by itself?

    Just got the WM1A a couple days ago and I absolutely love this DAP.. The best sound I've heard.
    I haven't even explored any settings and I come here seeing that the old firmware is even better?

    Anyway, just wondering if there is a consensus on which protective case is best or if there is one to avoid. I have the thin silicon one but was thinking of something a little sturdier, possibly with a screen cover. Is the Sony one any good? It looks a little annoying to use seeing as it flips down instead of to the side...

    I have too many headphones and like to sell some

    A year ago i ordered a mdrz1r and funny story it just arrived

    meanwhile now I own a stellia as well

    I will sell my sp1000 which is not getting any airtime

    but I will never sell 1z

    my question is should I keep 1zr - I can sell it because it is sealed box yet -

    is there a magic between 1zr and 1z ?

    or will I be happy with utopia/stellia paring

    I bought the kimber cable as well for 1zr...

    anybody compared stellia with 1zr using z1 walkman?

    Tried going back to the 1.02 and 1.2 firmware, but my 1A fails to build a library every single time.
    Can someone please help, maybe the firmware is corrupted??

    Unfortunately no.
    I tried the Diana with the LPGT that has twice the power of the 1Z and it still sounded underpowered

    you need to open settings and go to device settings then reset/format and choose rebuild database
