    Not me. I love my Sony NW-WM1A. Having said that, I also love my Lotoo Paw Gold Diana and Questyle QP1R.

    I love that Sony included a spectrum analyzer display mode. As someone in their mid-40's, it reminds me of the 80's Sony receivers that included these. Ticks an extra box in my book.

    I found that the music database can be confused if you connect it to a computer and change the name of an existing album or delete an album and copy over a new one with a slightly changed name (e.g., the addition of "Remastered" or something like that). The WM1A has to be disconnected from the computer, shut down, and restarted for the old album name to be totally removed from the database, then the new album can be added. Simply disconnecting from the computer after the change does not rebuild the database properly, even though the WM1A reports that the database is being rebuilt after the USB file edit or transfer is completed.

    It happened to me, if I don't rebuild the database from device settings > reset. And fromat menu, some times at start it scans the dB twice

    I want USB DAC on the WM1Z ! LOL...so I can watch movies on my iPad with it. I don't think Sony is going out with WM2Z in the next couple years...

    Wow, $3200 and still could not use as usb dac?
    I am glad I am staying away from Sony products.

    It doesn't even have internet , or wifi connection. I was being greedy since Zx300 is going to offer it. Maybe once the zx300 is out, we will have it...who knows. I bought it knowing that it has no internet or wifi or USB DAC function. Those are not my main reasons to buy it.

    It's a dedicated dap which is exactly what I want, couldn't care less about dac functionality

    I could care for the USB DAC functionality as an adapter for my 4.4mm headphones for my laptop, bit really for that I could buy a pair of $20 Sony lower tier HPs

    I guess not much player support USB-DAC? and I see it as a plus, not a necessary

    It is a music player after all

    I can live without USB DAC feature. When I travel I do not bring my macbook or laptop. They could focus more on dap feature and sq imo without need of the distraction.

    Sony have pha-3 if you want a USB DAC feature.

    Great deal on the kimber 4.4 balanced cable for z7/z1r on Amazon. $159 prime shipping.

    Much the same as the ZX2. A tag change does not guarantee an update in the database.

    It's like saying so many more expensive DAP cant even give you battery life of a SONY.
