    Catalina no longer supports 32-bit apps so I'm guessing that is the problem with the installer since you can manually bypass security. Some companies like Fiio don't even have an option for Mac OS.

    Another good reason to avoid apple what a joke. They think they control the world or what?

    I know about the 32 bit apps not supported on Catalina. But shouldn’t it not even load? In my case it loads but doesn’t update device with firmware. Since issue is happening on Mojave’ as well after security update I am assuming it is permission issue. Wm1z mounts and I can see on usb , I can move music, Sony software loads it just can’t update.. very frustrating.

    I agree they are becoming like Microsoft under Steve baller.. very restrictive. Time to switch I guess lot of my 32 bit apps just don’t work on Catalina which btw is just a cosmetic upgrade so my other machine stays on Mojave. But security patch now doesn’t allow some apps arrgh

    nice work around.. but too much work I think. Luckily my work computer was windows 10 and it allowed me to upgrade. But good option to have in back pocket . I am uploading my time machine copy on a usb stick..

    If the installer is 32-bit, it would not run at all under Catalina. What you're describing is what I have had happen all the time on my Mac, going back to Sierra. Try these two things: (1) shut down every non-operating-system application that you can via the Activity Monitor, and then run the installer (which worked for me); or if that doesn't work then option (2) is to boot into Safe Mode, and then run the installer.

    To get into Safe Mode,
    1. Press and hold down the Power key to shut down your computer.
    2. Restart the Mac, but hold down Shift while it's booting up. You will see the Apple logo on a grayish background with a progress bar. After you entered the Safe mode, run the installer again.

    The absolute best match I have heard so far, with the sony are the Focal Utopia and Denon 9200...
    Plenty of power with them.

    Thanks for the reply. How do the Denons compare to the Focals given they much cheaper? My problem is the Se846 and the Kimber Cable is that I find it a bit too warm and lacks some enthusiasm in the articulation. The player is already on the warm side too. I know I'm comparing IEMs with Headphones but I'm sure you get the picture.
