Personally I think the cone cut recess is pretty ugly, but hey, its on the inside what counts.  And i picked her up for a very low price :D

 

Out of the new ones i think the flush/flat ones look ok but the recessed one Cryok just posted is very nice.

 

Yeah, actually i prefer my recessed ones,to the flushed. The machining quality has definitely improved.

I just got an answer from Jack of Hisoundaudio. Seems that they use two different casing designs for Studio 3rd gen, one with recessed ports and the other one with flat ones, but insides of both players are exactly the same.

Great player by the way, and I'm quite happy with the purchase although I would be absolutely delighted if it was also equipped with optical fiber port...

The only option I don't quite understand is HDMS in option menu, as it seems that apart of taking the volume to the maximum level, there is no difference in sound. Would be great if someone shed some light on that...

Yeah, that's what hdms does. It's sort of a workaround for the lack of a true line-out. You just turn it on if you use an external amp

I really see no reason for it either, I've had a few instances where I accidentally enabled the feature and my ears paid the price. Not a good way to wind-down your day lol. Definitely will leave you wide awake after. tongue.gif

I am looking for a better DAP than my Clip. At the moment I am using RE262, DDM and EQ-5. The EQ-5 is very sensitive. Anyone tried the EQ-5 with the Studio V?

Does it have enough power for the RE262?

post #606 of 828

I was actually considering getting the REO272 for the Studio V since it has high impedance. I'm positive the Studio will have more than enough power to drive it and without hiss due to the impedance.

Should be good for all. I don't have them here any morebut I was thinking it would be a good match for e-q5 with Hybrid tips. Certainly works well enough with my gr10s/stock tips.

I've tried that before too.. While i was listening to the studio-v and browsing thru the settings. I came across with the hdms and turn it on and %(^$)%*$)%* Then i try to disable it but goes to no avail until i reset the setting back to default. What does that hdms actually do anyway and also that bt ?

Its suppose to serve like a line out feature through the HO which I find quite stupid to be honest. Best bet would be to make a dedicated HO that gives a pure signal instead. Otherwise I'd rather just adjust the HO volume manually to get the desired sound. BTN turns off that beeping sound. I find it to also change the sound so you may or may not like what it does while its off or on. While its enabled I find the sound to be more engaging. Especially in the mids. While having it off seems to expand the sound stage but you lose intimacy in the sound.

anyone ever defrag their Studio-V?

post #611 of 828

No. Why have you done it? Does it do anything? I'd be worried about it messing up the file system and bricking the player.

That would be pointless. The memory on the studio V is probably flash.There are no hard drives on there, hence no fragmentation.

I hope you haven't defragged your SSD:s on your computer since that will damage them. Also This player has flash storage  (like most mp3 players these days). Only HDD:s need defragmenting
