is there any indicator that your 1A is currently running a modded version? seems like the device itself still registered it as 3.02 version
Best way to be shure its just to reinstall 3.02 stock

True. I like hearing into my music, Dynamic Normalizer makes everything loud, not very good for high resolution music to my ears.
It depends on your setup and iem for me it only works well on certain songs that have very low volume... also gives you slight margin of EQ adjusting.. but yes everiothingyou turn on even drains up battery or degrades resolution...

No there is no way so you have to manully keep track
Though what is that certificate thing now under unit information? Do you get one when you leave your factory region on all regions?

I'm thinking at the minimum sometimes just listen to Stock Direct Sound or using the DSEE HX. It does get annoying when adjusting the volume for certain songs, but if that was the intention even with the FLAC or ALAC files, so be it.

It was never the intention that all music should be equally loud

As I said, if that’s how the composer wanted the music to be intended all along, then I will take that route.

What volume level are people listening their music to? Somewhere between 60 and 100?

With the IER-Z1R I usually use about 50 on high gain and 70 on low gain but some albums (especially dsd) are recorded low so I might raise the volume. Remember that I almost always listen to an album end to end and therefor don’t use dynamic normalizer to keep the dynamic differences between individual tracks in the album. For playlists and random play across many albums dynamic normalizer can make sense and in those situations there is no natural dynamic relationship between each track. But as you said ultimately it is you listening so you should use what works best for you

Depending on headphones or iem. But usually my levels are between 65 to max 85. Always on low gain and only dsee hx on standard.

I’m at 70 with DSEE HX on and off every now and then to catch the slight nuances

It varies based on the recording. So anywhere from 55-80 on low gain balanced.

True though to me I much prefer to get the dynamic differences the performer or composer intended in a recording, not just everything at the same loudness but if you just play random across a lot of different albums rather than playing a given album in full dynamic normalizer can be usefull as you don’t constantly have to adjust volume manually
Normalizer crush pipe organ dynamic big time when go through my classical records last night.
