    From my personal experience, Sony’s 4.4mm jack is very sensitive to ‘cheaper’ plugs. On my WM1A, I have heard crackling from NICEHCK, Sukira HiFi cables, Rhapsodio (1st generation 4.4 connector) and old Acoustune (an oxidised pentacon plug first generation). However has been fine and with out noise from DITA Oslo and various Effect audio cables.
    However with that said, most of all those cables (of which I still have) that had noise on the WM1A, when listening on my iBasso DX160, did not have crackling noise when spun.

    400gb was only around $49 a few months back... still more worth it than the 512gb lol

    My only gripe with the Benks case is that the frame of the screen is exposed compared to the dignis case.

    Why? You can always buy screen protector about USD 5 or below and attach to the screen.

    If you are from Malaysia, Lazada/Shopee or even AliExpress offer many screen protector for WM1A/1Z

    If you do not like to show the display screen, you can opt to set a shorter screen off time

    It’s not the screen itself, the part that surrounds the face of the screen is exposed on the Benks case vs the Dignis where it is fully covered, if you leave it like that over time it will discolour.

    Then get a leather with cover case, or wait until full enclosed TKU case from Benks or DIY case from 3D printing ?

    Yup, I already have a dignis case.

    How about the Fatbear anti-shock cases?
    Not that it matters but after 2037 we won’t be able to set the time/year in the 1A/1Z as it’s set to that year as the last.

    So somewhere in 2038 a you-tuber will stumble upon this player and mention that back in the day some phools invested in this player not knowing that after 17 years a $3000 walkman couldn’t time keep beyond a persons lifespan.

    Hmm... I somehow got used to 3.02 sound.

    I just lowered the volume from 72 to 70.

    I noticed the same thing when going from 2.0 to 3.02. I needed to reduce the volume a few clicks (same track / same IEMs)
