    I prefer the ALO Gold 16 with the Solaris and the SXC 8 with either the OG or SE Andromeda.

    Meomap, thanks for this, now you have me thinking!!!
    Just upgraded to a Cary Audio SLI-80 Integrated, and would prefer using a Dac, like your System 5.
    I may indeed go with the Dock.

    Thanks! It's a fantastic case for sure!

    If there's one minor con I can mention about the WM1A, it's the background noise with sensitive IEMs. It's not loud of course, but it is there, noticable in quiet song sections, or when nothing is playing. As a comparison, my Cowon Plenue 1 is absolutely silent no matter which IEMs I use.

    So did anyone have a small comparison yet between zx507 and wm1a or 1z?

    Yep, light hissing with my Andros with no music on. With music on, it’s unnoticeable.

    Yes therefore I won’t be getting the dock as it only serves as a charging stand and won’t fit my DAC cable. Thanks again.

    I don’t get any hiss using the 1A with my Z5. In fact it’s a match made in heaven for me. It just sounds so bloody good together. And that powerful sub impact never gets in the way of mids or anything. Perfect for me.

    Hi all!

    Does anybody have used the wmc-nwh10 cable to transmit DSD to an external dac? Is this possible or convert to pcm?

    I am planning to buy one and use it with an SMSL SU-8.

    Regards!!

    I am using the NWH10 to transmit full DSD256 to my FiiO K5 Pro. The cable works beautifully and sounds awesome. Attached pic.

    In the Noble Audio Django review “Headfonics” uses that IEM as an actual testing device (out of their collection of 80 IEMs) to discover how much hiss a DAP may have. So it must be the total most sensitive!

    Oh? So instead of the dock or the supplied mini-usb connector you hook your Walkman to the TA with a USB cable? Wow. I never thought of that?

    Err....or if I did I forgot that would work?
