I have the exact same issue as you and would really appreciate the ability to disable inputs.
Thanks Duck for sharing your correspondance. Although no fortunate answer for us, it's nice of them to get back quickly with a quite lengthy answer. I've been using the Direct functionality since it was implemented and while no complete solution it at least prevents me from going over the SD select which was an annoying extra sec. I often listen to music (USB) while playing on a console (OPT1) and there are situations where I need to switch input quickly.
Really thinking about this unit, I like the looks of it and it has a nice deal of versatility (SD card, optional upsampling). Can anyone compare it to a Burson Conductor, as far as an all-in-one unit is concerned? Is it worth getting primarily as a DAC/card reader, with the intention to use an external headphone amp (I have a V200, Schiit Lyr and Cary Nighthawk it would be feeding, all have different sound sigs...My main headphones are the HD800 and Mad Dogs, I plan on getting a planar later on and probably a T1). It would be considered "warm and 3D" from what I am reading, so would it not really be considered neutral?
It doesn't have balanced outputs, but that seems to be the only real strike against it. Not a major concern of mine.
I am also considering the Yulong D8 and the Woo WDS-1, but I am more drawn to the feature set of the A8 (I do prefer the look of the WDS-1, tbh).
For my HP-A8, I use its remote controller frequently, however after several months usage, it becomes very unresponsitve and need to press hardly on the button (I'm sure it's not the battery issue), does any other guy encounter similar problem?
Another question is that, have some body tried using a camera kit on iPad to input audio via its USB? Not sure whether it's supported.
