    Golden Rule.

    In anything, for real...if you can get away with money and have it earlier, why not ? U may not tell what will happen in the next few minutes at all. You can actually find clips of people who drop-dead on a stage somewhere in the world ....it is reality

    of course WOLO but spending 500$ on a cable or 2K on a iem , this is realistically speaking an option than says you can afford it

    i mean ,i don't think anyone here went out and bought a 2K iem by asking for a bank loan , right ?

    so like i said ,patience or money .

    this is actually the exception to the rule , which solidifies my point

    have a nice day (without any bank loans for iem purchases)

    That is some strong and good thoughts friend I totally agree wm1z is really unique.

    Also I'd like to add,
    Wm1z had a very amazing smoothe linearity and tonality reproduction. Notes to notes are so pleasant, accurate and natural. There is no hiccups or strange resonance its really linear and continuous...
    Wm1z is really on a different lvl vs all other daps on market.
    Also I found wm1z is really fine tuned, it manages to reproduce very subtle nuances of music with finesse & delicacy....
    While new daps bring in more micro details for example but unable to still bring up and sing those fine nuances of wm1z and to me thats what make music so delightful and good, not the technical details...

    Also wm1z has very neet dsd playback its even more organic and analog then flacs...

    With all the versatile functions of wm1z you literally have the best of the best!
    Yes week points exist so does everything else to. Nothing is ever perfect, voila.

    How did you figure?

    He did just tell you he personally knows someone who did just that, right?

    You made a statement about how most everyone in this hobby pays for their gear without any solid data backing it up but only your own personal take on things.

    "this is actually the exception to the rule , which solidifies my point" Did you just arbitrarily decided that?????? Did you go out and did a survey?????

    Does not 'solidify"'your original point at all, if anything makes the opposite argument that there are people out there that will use their credit card, get a loan, extra line of credit etc to pay for a piece of gear that he or she really wants and has to have.

    I personally know young people with very expansive gear they had put on their credit cards making monthly payments on. They work hard and play hard!

    It no longer works on Mac if you run Catalina or Mojave with latest security patch. Your only option is find a windows machine and install it. I had the same issue and made a detailed post few pages before.. sorry you are SOL ON Mac with Sony firmware

    another option make a bootable disk on ssd with older version of Mac OS from time machine or fresh install and then install firmware from that OS

    3.02 with a18t, I get more tighter strong healthy bass: not muddy like 3.01. More 3d, holographic and separation. This should turn your a12t to closer a18t level of performance. What I don't like is a bit bright or harsh on the high and treble boosted too much for my taste.

    Has Any one tried tia trio with wm1z?
    How does it compares to wm1z + ier-z1r?

    I got it from ELF Custom Cables. Advertised as OCC 6n 99.9999% copper plated silver. Can't find bad review but good. They only have soild wires for DIY from scratch. It need to be insulate with something that has low dielectric constant like taflon tape. Surprisingly much better sound overall that my Toxic Cables Black Widow OCC wire or SPC premium cable I bought from 64 audio.

    Hi Everyone!

    Greetings.

    I am using Sony 1Z and Z1R combo for last one month. I am 42 years old and almost enjoy every genre except Heavy Metal. From Dolby Atmos, I entered into headfi for about 1 year. Last 1 year I switched gears very fast and finally settled in Sony Signature.

    I am curious how much I sould use volume level in 1Z? Except classical, I remain about 55 to 65 depending on recording in Balanced Out. I don't have hardware to measure db. Can anybody share comments on this? Or how much do you use?
    Thanks in advance...

    Nah, I sold those so I could afford the IEM-Z1R.
