    I've used wm1a with a null audio sigle end cable for almost a year now. Until recently i request them to reterminate the cable with Balanced connector.

    It sound even better than before, but it seems like i have to redo the 200 hours of burn-in process :3

    not sure if that is necessary or i've been putting a high expectation to the improvement :p

    So you probably did not get close to the 200 hours threshold of usage on one of the outputs, right?
     
  4. robin1990
    yeah, i think i'm at somewhere 30 hours to the balanced output.
    never thought that i have to burn in both output separately though

    It's getting better and better by the hour......

    Yes, until you reach 500h is the. End of the process

    Enjoying an old favorite CD I bought after years of looking for it 15000407075841781317848.jpg

    The balanced circuitry is different than the single ended circuitry. :)

    I love the way the Sony NW-WM1A handles album art (perfectly centered) and puts thumbnails into artist scroll. My Lotoo Paw Gold Diana sounds better, but I am enjoying the user experience on the Sony NW-WM1A much more. Bluetooth will be great for listening to Graphic Audio audiobooks. These books have theme songs, digital sound effects, cinematic music, and voice actors playing each individual character. 20170713_200922.jpg

    yeah , the whole sony package (especially battery) makes me go for it instead of (probably) better sounding daps like LPG

    it's the battery , to misquote those MJ23 TV ads from the 90s

    Battery life and Bluetooth are musts for dramatized audiobooks. Having said that, I feel blessed to also own the Lotoo Paw Gold Diana and the Questyle QP1R.

    I suspected so. Glad that it can be even better.
    Now at this current rate I feel that wm1a sounded too humble for epic symphony like Mahler Symphony 5 and 6 :)

    Why do you need Bluetooth for these audiobooks? Are they not listen worth on cable? I don't get your point, sorry.
     
  14. Quadfather
    I do cables at home and when I am listening sedentary, but I deliver mail and the cables get in the way. I just stick a small Bluetooth speaker in my pocket and keep the player safe and dust free in a zippered pocket. The audiobooks are WAY BETTER on wired, quality headphones.

    Does anyone know where I can find a 4.4mm dust plug to keep the dust out of the balanced output when not in use?
