    I never get fatigued by my Sony NW-WM1A. I love my Lotoo Paw Gold Diana, but sometimes it gets overwhelming.

    I have read in the new walkmans leak manuals, a new PC-software, so perhaps mediaGo will be discontinued?

    That's why we recommend people who bought WM1 series to go 4.4mm.

    I remember reading that you are using your edition 8 balanced; how does it sound out of the 1Z compared to SE?

    Did you have the Romeo version with removable cables it did you mod them?
    I have relegated my Ed8 to my shelf, but would love to get a little more out of them and then maybe start to use them again.

    You can refer to my post about ED8 with WM1Z here https://head-fi.org/f/threads/sony-nw-wm1z-wm1a.815841/page-846#post-13585971

    tl;dr - I think it actually sounds better out of single end than balance, but I may need to replace the pads on my ED8 cos they've gone soft and not nearly as firm as when they were new.

    I have the original ED8s, I just cut off the plug and re-terminated it with a 2.5mm plug as the original cable is left/right channel separate all the way down to the plug. Perhaps if I feel like giving them a complete refresh I'll replace both the pads and re-terminate with a 4.4mm Pentaconn....

    I can testify both 1A and 1Z handles Wagakki band songs supremely. Every single piece of instruments got their own position and plenty of air to breath, with timber dead on accurate on the 1A while a tad sweeter-toned on the 1Z.

    Did not expect to see Nadesico, nostalgia is strong with this one

    I felt the whole band around me.
    So awesome.

    Got my WM1A today from amazon.co.uk and immediately changed the setting to E and got high-grain output. What a world of difference. Now I'm around 90 on the volume level instead of 120.

    Love love love the device :)

    All time classic :beerchug:


    This album スターチャイルドSELECTION音楽編 included many classic anisong,
    such as '残酷な天使のテーゼ', 'FLY ME TO THE MOON', 'Give a reason', '輪舞-revolution' and 'Birth'
    which highly recommend if you like those 90's classic anisong.

    Watch out - are you guys killing your ears and setting yourselves up for some problems later on in life?

    I have my 1Z with high gain output enabled and listen to my Utopia's and Z1R's (both through the balanced output) at 65-70 max.
