    I'm on board with Benks! My Dignis is a great case, but I'm with you about being able to see the DAP.

    Functional, simple, and gorgeous. Nothing to flip or snap or tuck. You do miss out on the smell of fine leather I suppose.

    It's cool and nicely tight and fit. I have this Benks TPU as well. Different mood different casing :D

    well, here's an update. I received a replacement NW WM1A following the crackling fiasco. Tried the Yinyoo 16 core 4.4 balanced cable in the new unit and lo and behold - i get crackling if i swivel the headphone jack. I get no crackling in the 3.5mm if i swivel the port. i am thinking now maybe the 4.4mm plug on the cable is not quite right?

    It has better protection and doesn’t slip out of your hand as easy as Dignis Case as well. The 1Z is a gorgeous looking player.

    Hey can anyone say with confidence one way or the other whether this 512GB microsd is up to snuff for our DAP? Should be, but I admit not being exactly savvy on the U1, U3, class numbers, etc.

    Getting downright affordable (I've been getting by with the onboard memory plus a 64GB, but I've got a lot of hi-res, DSD stuff and I need to expand to use it.)

    Thanks. When I got my WM1A, which wasn't that long ago really, the 400GB was a budget buster (for me) and there was no 512 yet. Now the 512 is 80 bucks?!? ... wow.

    Yep the 400 was at the top of my budget at $80 when I bought mine. I still have about 100 gb open so no need to move up. I'll wait for the 1 tb to drop and go all the way.

    It's amazing how fast they drop in price. Last Christmas I thought I was getting a smoking good deal on the 400gb when it was $104cdn and at that time the 512gb was close to $200. Now the 512 is just over $100cdn and will surely be under that by this Christmas.

    edit... just bought the benks case. I like the idea of the clear design and comes with the plugs as a bonus..

    I got my 1A about 16 months ago, and I can't remember exactly but I'm pretty sure the 400GB was a LOT more than $80 back then. Like, maybe 3x that much? I know I looked, thought a minute, and said nope lol. But $80 I can handle. I'll still wait a little longer though ... BlackFriday/CyberMonday may work in my favor.


    @SBranson you'll like the Benks. Great protection but it basically isn't there, if you know what I mean.

    I bought 400GB from Amazon Dec 2018 at USD 80, wow, now can buy 512GB !

    For the speed class, 10 and U1 (UHS) is more than adequate read/write 10Mbps is more than adequate, U3 and above speed class is for video recording up to 8K resolution. For music listening, the crucial is reading speed; writing speed is to copy your music files from one source to micro SD.
