    Mike, when you find one, let me know. Been listening to Kimber 4.4 MUC-M12SB1 on XBA-Z5.WM1Z and it's the best sounding combo I have heard so far.

    Go to balanced out and never looked back. The difference between SE is getting obvious over time.

    I matched up the volume better, and with Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7GMs, the QP1R and Sony NW-WM1A are so very close in sound quality. Both single ended. I am beginning to doubt last night's impressions. All things considered, battery life and the phenomenal user interface and album art is the clincher in favor of the Sony NW-WM1A. What a sweet piece of engineering!

    Remember, Single ended, Sony has TRRS, which is 4nseparated polarity for Separated grounds and it has better sound quality. That would be a better matchup than just SE vs SE. There is no room to improve in QP1R, there is for wm1Z...then there is Balanced 4.4

    My Shure SE846s are drop dead gorgeous on Sony's balanced output. I have no balanced cables for headphones yet.

    The 3.5mm is also balanced?

    The 3.5 mm is seperate ground like on ZX2

    I didn't know that! I have a TRRS just for the ZX2.

    My Sony NW-WM1A needs more DSD. What is the best site to go to for DSD music downloads?

    I usually buy them from these 3 websites
    nativedsd.com
    Hdtracks.com
    store.acousticsounds.com

    I’ve also been able to convert some sacd to dsd files

    How do you feel with Lionheart balanced out, I am in dilemma since I scare it will sacrifice Treble of Andromeda.

    I am using WM1A + Leonidas + Andromeda.

    For Leonidas you will have a more open sound. Treble extend higher for me.

    From what i read Lionheart is not a low focus cable but mid high.
