  Basically the volume cap is just a volume limiter in software. the hardware is identical, the hack just removes the limiter and is completely reversible.


I'm looking for @CraftyClown's provided instructions in his posts but not able to find it.. may need to spend more time there. But hey! If you have it handy, can you please share it here? Hope it's not too much to ask

Right in the middle of here and there
  Guys, quick question - I know WM1A volume cap issue can now be fixed. But, is there any impact on the sound quality because of this? I am willing to place an order from amazon.uk .
 

All the players were manufactured exactly the same component wise, the only thing different  was the change in region code so to speak. Removing the remote and high gain functions for the European market, the player was never actually capped it just didn't have high gain function.

Be careful. Ask yourself just one question. Why would any dealer in business sell for way less than what they pay to buy it from the manufacturer.

But somebody mentioned MDR-Z1R, I didn't see it dropped prices
 
Also for TA-ZH1ES, it did not ship to US. How should we get it (ship to a friend in UK and let them ship to US?)?

Jason - Understand your warning, but Amazon typically doesn't conform to standard rules.

If they're being cut off as Signature dealers? Then I'd be more concerned, but for ~40% off? That's harder calculus.

Cheers
