    Never tried their interconnect before. I bought one from plussound. They just take 2 weeks to make it. Not bad at all.

    My 2nd 1A is on the way. $1000 for a brand new 1A is a great deal for me. I almost bought a 1Z. But finally i decided to get back a 1A and a w900. The w900 will come in 2 weeks. So excited.

    Ask Trevor from Norne Audio. He made me these:

    Unfortunately I don't have any use for them so I never opened that bag. I no longer have any 2.5mm cable. Was a tiny confusion in my order hehe

    If your audio spending affects the family's budget significantly...then you are spending too much. Otherwise, what does the wife care what you do with you money? Better it be music than booze, gambling and hookers.

    IMG_8026.JPG Nw-wm1a internal wires are 22awg x4. they look so thin when compared with some other high end cables. I recabled balanced side of Sony dap (4.4mm plug) with 8 wires 26awg black widow from toxic cables last month. Sound quality is noticeably better. I get more details and better extends from entire range of sounds. Overall, a bit brighter and warmer sound signature. Soundstage is larger. It's like when you compare from large size room to a town hall space. I get more powerful kicks and details from the bass. Stock cables sounded veil by comparison.

    IMG_8033.JPG After diy 6 cables. These two are my favorite. The top cable is 26awg copper and 29awg silver plated mix. Basically I get better soundstage and details. The the second cable is just 26awg copper. This one is good for long listening. Sound signature is warm and natural.

    You do not need to be sorry whatsoever because your unbiased opinion was really what i wanted to hear/read about and i really appreciate your time and effort with your response. So i thank you for that. :)

    Hope you're enjoying your Dream pairing with your 1Z btw and all pun intended :wink:

    Cheers, mate

    Not trying to bash or be a mincer about this but aren't those 4.4 plugs slightly misaligned to their respective chamber/housing?

    Sorry my ocd just kicked in :p

    Isn't the wires in wm1A 22AWG ? If they are 22AWG, then it doesn't matter what cables look larger, it maybe the insulator that make them look larger. If you go from 22 down to 26 that is downgrade though
