Optical use a noisy optical decoding chip. You have no clue if the result will be noisier or not. Generally, optical is considered as the worst manner to link a dac. Coax is better generally. Coax cable matter a lot ... And optical cable don't all give the same sound ... It's very difficult to consider opinions while too much possibility. You can conclude optical is better because you don't have a good coax and same in the other side.
Ap1 and ap2 are supposed to sound similar. Ap1 upgraded for pure power can't work without the battery pure power. Buy pp before a ifi USB or better USB cable. Buy a better USB cable before ifi USB. With all that, software still have a big impact on the sound. So the filtration, buffer, reclock and isolation are not perfect and the better the source, the better the output. Enjoy the world of audio.
I have AP1/PP + ifi iUSB + iFi Purifier I bought for a friend a AP2 + AqVox supply.   AP1 / PP all the way big step up from all other below AP2 / iFi second best ... it's still far from AP/PP. More natural than AqVox and more resolving. AP2 AqVox third .. It's give more swing to AP alone. Is-it an upgrade ? Not sure ... probably a side move. AP2 alone   All that require attention on the usb cable. It's make a major difference in the SQ.
The noise is not the same depending which USB port you take. USB 3 have a different circuit resulting a different noise pattern. Your data remains the same on all USB port but not the noise. Noise is transmitted to your dac and result as jitter. Different USB cable do the same ... Different sound because the noise pattern transmitted is not the same depending of your USB cable. I have ifi iusb, ifi purifier and USB cable still do a difference. Those parts cut the 5...
Friend of mine tries the nano on his power amp and found it good after one hour. While it's with battery, I can't let it play all time. Any manner to use the USB power just to keep unit warm and ready and when we want listening with the best quality switch battery on? I never switch off my main gear to prevent to have a long warm up before have a good depth of soundstage and see my speakers disappear.
The sound is like a pirate movie recorded in a cinema. 8-) The voices seem far and echo. In fact for the ambiance, I like the effect. I think it's give what you telling ... out of your head effect.
I dont read chinese.
 Exactly. The taste of the month ... after no more love. I have AP1+PP and love it. The convenience to plug & forget and program ANY remote is convenient.
The tag artist is for the specific track the tag album artist is the main artist of the cd.   Group with album artist and not artist.   Album artist should be "Ben UFO". Artist for each track, you have the informations.   Somes albums, it's complicated: EX: Disk 1 have one title and disk 2 have another title. If you want to have them in the same virtual album, you have to give the same album name for both cd.   The most complicated still the...
I buyed 2 unit from the clone version on ebay. I should got them in the next week.   What I was reading seem to give a difference in the ambiance.   The theory of this is completely ridiculus ... but that not mean it's doing nothing.
