  6. No issue to install DMP-WM1 FEv2 but DMP-WM1 FEv2 Ext. Tuning isn't an .exe (it's a compressed folder). Thanks!

    1. Ah, will modify the instructions text, thanks.

    2. In any case, it's supposed to be just a compressed folder, to stop false virus detection.

  7. Thank you for the mod and Microsoft Defender removed the false detection from today by request !

    1. I also sent them a sample and they confirmed that there is no virus and asked me to update Defender in a certain way. However, that didn't help even today, after several months after their answer.

  9. Thank you very much for your work and sharing with the public. I bought a used WM1Z for less than half the money. It was used for 41 hours. I use Meze99 Classics and Sennheiser HD 800. Which software do you recommend to install, among other things? The region I have AEP, UK on the sticker. The volume is unrestricted. 3.02. Thank you for your response.

  10. No chance of a firmware for Walkman A-20 series devices?

    1. Some modifications could be done to the A20 firmware, but I don't own the device and I'm not really interested in getting one and working on this.

  11. Dear Mr Walkman :
    I have a question regarding DSEE AI available in your custom upgrade Firmware :
    Is the function of DSEE AI same as that of DSEE ULTIMATE (found in New Android Walkman NW-ZX-507 & Xperia 1 mark 3. More specifically Does DSEE AI uses Artificial intelligence to optimally upscale compressed & CD Quality music files to a max high resolution quality of 192Khz/32 bit which is the function of the new DSEE ULTIMATE.?
    Thanks
    Regards
    Arijit.

  12. How can I notice a difference between Dawn and Midnight software, if reading both characteristics, the two of them are almost the same?
    What do you mean with neutral and warmer headphones?

  15. Thanks for all the hard work. Do you plan to release Dawn v2 for WM1A? Also where can I find the old versions of all your firmwares?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Older firmware is basically obsolete. At least with Dawn/Midnight you can have the previous Project Z/FEv2 tuning.

      A Dawn v2 update is in the works.

  16. - Midnight v2 (August 27th)

    - Dawn v2 (August 27th)

  17. i'm sorry. Can you please help me to install new firmware from my old DMP-WM1_FE firmware. i can't install StockRevert_Ext_Tuning

    1. As per the WM1-FE's instructions, you need to apply the FE's StockRevert package first. You can confirm it was applied by checking the Unit Information menu.

  18. Can I install cover my existing "Midnight V.2"?

    I've installed Walkman One but unit info still showed "midnight v.2" and can't find "SIG" in midnight settings 1a.txt too.

    What I missed any action/step? Thank you sir.

    1. As per Midnight v2's instructions, you first needed to revert back to the stock firmware.

      You can find past StockRevert packages just above the Walkman One download link.

  20. Mr.walkman, I'm sorry that the BT remote control operation called RMT-NWS20 was deleted. is. The source code has this display setting and it is not displayed now, but it seems to be the default. Do you have any plans to restore it again? If you own this remote control and want to use it, you have no choice but to delete the CFW. I wish I could use this remote with your great tuning.

    1. Hey, the remote option is only available with the J/E regions. Read the FAQ about the settings file, where you can change the region to J/E or you can simply change an option which makes the remote option show up.

  21. I noticed one peculiarity of installing the Walkman One firmware, namely, that there is a difference on which firmware to install the Walkman One.
    I tried to install Walkman One on stock firmware "0.89.11" and "3.02" and there is a difference in sound.
    "0.89.11" sounds more bass, and after installing the Walkman One on it, the sound is more bass than when set to "3.02"

    1. Interesting, I haven't tried to do that. Would you say you like how it sounds more than when coming from 3.02?

      Delete
    2. Yes, I liked the sound better if I installed Walkman One on stock firmware "0.89.11". As for me, the sound is richer and more bass. As if the base from "0.89.11" remains, but the volume and detail from WM1Z are added. I am using with CEW region and WM1Z signature. Try it if you feel like it, you should feel the difference.

      Delete
    3. Perhaps if you try to install Walkman One on other previous stock firmware you can achieve even more interesting sound, but I only have these:
      "0.89.11"
      "0.90.00"
      "0.92.00"
      If you have other versions of previous stock firmware I would be glad to try experimenting with them :)
