    Moon Audio has Dignis cases on sale 10% off with "dignis10" and also free shipping for orders over $49 for US.

    Don't deal with Moon Audio, they are fradulent.

    Well I'm sure you have your reasons but I have made several purchases in the past 5+ years on cables and gear without any issues.

    I never comment on topics like this but in this case I can say you’re wrong. They are a good and fair company.

    silly question, does the NW-WM1A run android?
     
  7. bflat
    No. OS is Sony proprietary.
     
  8. Death_Block
    is that to mean apps cannot be installed? Im looking at one of these or the Ibasso DX220. Reason for asking about android is using tidal or something similar for lossless streaming, storage. I don't have a music collection anymore to load on it.

    You could try the newly released Sony zx-507. That is Android based and you can install spps
     
  10. bflat
    That's right, no app loading for Sony. Your options for Sony DAPs are:

    1) Use your phone or tablet to stream to WM1a/z with bluetooth receive mode LDAC. or wired in DAC mode.
    2) Get the new Sony ZX-500 which runs on Android.

    heh, I was just on the sony website and didnt see the zx-500 (507)? thanks guys!
     
  12. Death_Block
    how would the zx-500 compare against the ibasso dx-220? used to own a dx200 and was very happy with it but got water damage. (if anyone knows if this is repareable that would be great). As I know what the dx200 is like its the only thing I can compare anything else too. it also uses dual 9028 sabre, couldnt find anywhere what the sony uses.

    why are you asking in the wm1a/z thread about the zx500 ?

    there is a dedicated zx500 thread here

    https://www.head-fi.org/threads/new-sony-nw-zx500

    i am sure that if you post your questions there , you can get actual feedback from zx500 owners

    cheers

    I had opportunity to carefully audition DX220 beside 1A & 1Z. In my 41 years of life I am tired of searching the summit sound. DX220 is very good. If I did not listen keeping all associated factors constant probably I would buy 220. Very detailed. Smart, streaming all together wow! But as I was only striving for ultimate sound quality, so could not stop buying 1Z. Vocal is so lushly, reach, OMG what a warm full bodied sound elements that I did not get anywhere. Mention able that even beside SP2000Cu. Pure analog, food like sound...
