    I forgot to take picture before I close the back plate. With 8 wires in there, it's took so much space and it's not easy to put everything back. Hope this help. Don't try this mod if you have no experience!

    You absolutely beat me to this statement. I'm just baffled at the amount of money some of these guys throws around on this forum.

    I mean this guy (quotes below) let go of a $3000 dap in anticipation of a $4000 new dap, in the interim he's replaced it with another $3000!!! Amazing.

    I assume then that you used 2 wires per channel.

    Sorry, but I struggle to understand how a "small" drop ON the screen can do this. The fluid must've got inside - perhaps there was more spillage than you realise?

    maybe he meant he dropped the Walkman from a very short distance but enough to cause damage? Sure that looks like water damaged display / display circuit /GPU

    Actually I dropped something on it. But not a single scratch, still it caused this. It happened two days ago but problem occurred this evening.

    I will try the warranty option but not sure they'll replace. Instead they would call it a user error. Let's see.

    The screen failure that @Virtu Fortuna experiences, like ghosting, happened to me back in 2009 when I dropped into the toilet bowl my A818 Walkman and committed the mistake of turning it on. Screen ghosted, faded and turned white and the device died :confounded:

    Yes, 2 wires par channel. You can do just 1 as well. It's depends on what kind of sound signature you are try to achieve. Also not every copper or silver cables are the same. Some aftermarket cables sound worst then stock cable. Research research...!

    @virtu-fortuna If there is no dent on the body or no crack on the glass. You can just say it's happened for no reason. It turned on and that is what I see. Never say it dropped or something spilled on it!

    When people see me with my modest gear, they think it's great. When they find out the price, they think I'm an idiot.

    But I always remind myself that it's a hobby, then I'm at peace with the world.

    Well...houses (heck, more like apartments) here, or at least a decent one, cost half a million and more. In USD thats about 400grand for a house. So our perspectives of value and worth can be rather different. Plus, healthcare,transportation and food here is pretty darn affordable (cheap even by US standards). In short, here, we do have quite abit of disposable income as long as one doesnt have kids....Which is always why I find it hilarious when people here complain about the rising cost of living; considering that we have it waaayyyyy easier than folks in other countries.

    So, in a nut shell, lets just put it as that some of us would like to enjoy life for a while longer before we start spawning little life and cash sucking demons into this world...

    Anyway, letting go of a 3grand player, pre announcement, seems reasonable to me. I mean, just look at the price

    And, yes, I can attest to the difficulties of trying to keep some of our purchases under wraps from our partners. Thankfully, both the CU and 1Z are relatively similar in colour....at a stretch.....

    Plus, I dont see the 1Z as an interrim player, unless, of course, the SP1000 does manage to impress me, which is still an unknown at this point. I do think that the 1Z, while sonically inferior to my old CU, does some things which I found to be critically lacking to my CU (driving dita dynamics well for example), and for that I choose to sacrifice a little sound for proper driving power. If that, makes sense to anyone.

    I don't think you or anyone, needs to justify what they do with their money. I am more amazed that people have the urge to enquire about it. Whether it is jealousy or just curiosity I find it quite improper and none of their business.

    Thanks. I will try to do that when I have a chance to visit a Sony Center near me.

    Device works without a problem by the way. Touchscreen also works. So I can still use it but before that I will try the warranty.
