These Furutech plugs are a work of art!
Yes, most all my plugs are the Furutech. The RCA's for my desktop amp male and female, though expensive, are all that I use. The only plug I feel is a let down is the 2.5 TRRS because the center pin is steel and I have other TRRS 2.5 that are not steel and non magnetic and they hold up very well.

Any recommendations on glass screen protector?

Can't recommend the Brotect products enough (Check amazon.co.uk). Cheap, well made, and a breeze to apply. I use them on all my screens.

Hi guys,

I just bought my NM WM1Z in Japan. Its international version. How do I check if its EU version and/or volume capped?

Thanks
Blue Star

I dont think Japan sells EU version.
From what i read from this forum. Normally EU set have their options to check high gains locked.

...do notice which ever you buy the chances are, they are all the same or similar OEM rebadge and all made in china with different packaging, so just get the cheapest one.

Was just about to type the same answer...most, if not all are Made in China. I picked up a couple in Japan then later another one locally at near half price all are about the same quality, and yes Chinese made. The only difference are the packaging and the branding outside the box.

Hi All, first post here.

I recently acquired the WM-1A and have been using standard earphones (ONKYO E700M) every since. Will there be a significant sound difference for BALANCED output?

If yes, what balanced earphones do you experts recommend me try out?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings.

I have a quick question on WM1A burn in. Do you let the DAP run with power adaptor on? Or you run on battery & charge when it is needed?

Appreciate your comment on this. Cheers.

Hi guys, I'm looking to amp my wm1a and I'm wondering if it matters wether I use the trrrs output, or use the trrs output.

I know that using either will enable me to listen to native dsd, but will I be missing out on anything in terms sq for not using the 4.4mm output?
Thanks

I powered it via the battery, and charged when necessary. I don't know if the resulting trickle charge of using the adapter constantly would have any impact on such a modern battery.

Amazon US shows three variants to fit the Sonys. I just ordered the new glass version. Dealer is in Germany, so it might be a while before I get it.
