    I love my black Sony but I really have to get the gold one. Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to sell my LPG because it sounds so good with jazz. I find myself listening to my Sony probably 90% of the time

    I'm curious how it sounds like after almost 7000 hours compared to new 1A

    Any one knows whether the sony DAPs have a limit where it comes to number of tracks. I have calculated if i get the 1TB micro SD maybe i will carry between 48.000 and 51.000 tracks

    Don’t know. I have about 39.000 tracks on my 1TB card

    Amazon has the WM-1A for $998.00 and the SanDisk 1TB Extreme MicroSDXC for $249.99 for Cyber Monday.

    Want to follow up on my return situation. Thankfully Amazon did honor the return and transaction is now marked "Return Completed" and they have the fake card in hand. The 1TB Sandisk that I bought on the Black Friday is now here and seem to be legit. Got it for $199....so super happy with this purchase.

    Hi all I'm not sure if this is a well known fact but I thought I would post it just in case there are someone here that like me did not know about this.

    The other day I did a factory reset using the 'Restore to Factory Configuration' option and noticed today (didn't think to check until now) that the 'Audio Played' timer was also reset by the factory reset process. Not a big deal since I know I had roughly 30 hours of play time on it but still it came as a surprise because I thought I read somewhere on this thread that factory reset will NOT touch the timer.

    BTW, I did the factory reset after updating the firmware to 3.02.

    Getting to love a firmware has a lot to do with just what IEMs you have and what tone personality you like. It’s personal and there is no right or wrong. For me 2.0 is nice and was used a bunch. It’s more stable than 3.0 and maybe sounds better. Though 3.01 added stability and bass with the 1A. 3.01 was also great with the 1Z but for many, including myself 3.02 is where I stay with the 1Z. Normally it’s a slow progression because at times change can be perceived as wrong when it’s not really that bad.....just different. So now I use 3.01 firmware on the 1A and 3.02 on the 1Z. 3.02 was just too bass-lite on the 1A?

    I only have 1000 hours on the 1Z, maybe a little more due to doing a full reset a while back. Also maybe only 500 hours on the 1A.
