I already have a Sony NW-ZX2 which is superb. So, when I heard about this new NW-WM1A I was intrigued to see if it could better my ZX2. Physically, it is a little shorter but slightly thicker than the ZX2. Overall, it looks nice but not as 'clean' as the ZX2. I'm referring to the bulges at the side for the headphone jacks. The software uses Sony's proprietary interface rather than Android as with the ZX2. If you want streaming services then this is not the device for you. I dropped various sample files onto the device. These included Fourplay's excellent 'Silver' album. This is brilliantly recorded with superb 'ambience'. I also included OMD's excellent 'English Electric' and various others. All of these are in lossless format (alac). I used my trusty Sony MDR-1A headphones which I rate highly. They sound very similar to OPPO PM-3's which I also owned for a period of time. However, the MDR-1A's have a tad more bass and way more comfortable so I sold the OPPO's.
I have to say that I could not detect any difference between this device and the ZX2. That is to say, they were both excellent. This was using the standard player on both with no EQ etc. Vocals were identical and levels of clarity and bass were the same, also.

On the ZX2 I now only use Poweramp downloaded from the Play store. Even in standard mode this sounds better than the Sony default player. However, I set the Poweramp EQ to 'Bass and Treble' and this really gives a superb 'meaty' sound. Well worth downloading and checking out.
Therefore, if you require to tweak your music slightly, this is the best way to do it in my view,

Also worth mentioning is that the NW-WM1A goes a little louder than the ZX2. The temptation when first getting a new device is to crank the volume fully up.

I previously had an uncapped ZX2, which sounded superb to me, so had no problem buying the WM1A.

Whilst I much preferred the non-Android OS, it was let down by two issues for me.

Firstly, the volume cap totally ruined the experience for me, as I had to turn the volume right up to listen to my IEMs (Zeus-R CIEM, Noble K10U and 64 Audio U12) even in a quiet setting indoors. When I ventured outside to commute to work, where I mainly listen to my music, I had to turn the volume up to 105/110 out of 120 to get a decent performance, even with a perfect seal. This is unacceptable to me, but that's the way it is.

Secondly, the lack of compatible cables to work with the 4.4mm balanced output on the player. I know that these will be out soon enough, but I like to use all of the available utilities when I buy something, in order to make a thorough evaluation, before deciding whether to keep it or not.

Mainly due to the volume cap, I decided to return it, which is a shame, because I sold my uncapped ZX2 to fund the purchase, which I now regret.

If I can obtain an uncapped version, then I'd happily jump onboard. If you're happy listening to your music indoors, with easy to drive IEM's, then this may be the player for you.

Excellent simple as that , keep your eye on the price ! It dropped to £809 when I bought it so sit tight and watch it for a while if you can wait !
Update .... Doubt your going to see these cheap again after there's now a volume cap removal programme, I bet a few people are kicking themselves for sending them back now !
