The HDP-R10 has a very addictive sound signature. The next step is to find a good case. I don't like silicon sleeves. Hopefully, I can find a generic leather one that fits perfectly. And clean up the tags in all albums.

somehow I have an inner feeling that u r not that much impressed by the HDP

I used the HDP-R10 with my HD650. I have to use the high gain setting and turn up the volume to use the HD650 but the R10 is powerful enough to drive it. The sound is similar to my high end home rig. I'm used to this type of sound because I use my home rig often, which is why I'm not easily impressed.

Sound quality: 10/10 as good as my high end home setup
Build: 7/10 sturdy build quality, but the plastic feels cheap. I understand their choice. It's a heavy unit. Using a metal housing would make it too heavy.
Design: 5/10 unoriginal Android (front) and iPod lookalike (rear)
usability: 6/10 easy to use when it starts working, but it can freeze after startup or crash during playback. The UI lags. Doesn't sort music by folder.

May I ask what firmware you have installed ?
Ismitn8.03 ?

V8.0.2

By the way, the battery life on my unit isn't 10 hours. Mine is drained from a full charge after about 5 hours using the SE846. The R10 is supposed to have a better battery than the DX100, but mine doesn't last longer than several hours. Every unneccesary setting was already turned off. I reduced things like screen brightness to save even more battery life.

Is it true? Doesn't have folder view???? That's a very big con in my case.

Sorry, my mistake. I checked again and it does have folder navigation. It's hidden. You need to swipe the upper bar to reveal the folder view icon.

Since the resolution of the HDP-R10 screen is similar to iPhone 3G's, I won't bother fixing all the music tags to have correct album view for now. The display of the album art isn't very pleasing to me, because I'm used to the Retina Display. I can use folder view, play a song and switch to song view to see a bigger image of the album art with all the details of the song. The icons in album view are so small and low-res that it's not worth the effort to clean up the thousands of music tags.

Update to 8.03 do not use the 9.03 as it has all,the other stuff you do not need or should not use. .,if you install the 9.03 you will need to disable in the menu all,the extra stuff. Use the stock player and the unit is fine. Only with the dsd 64 does it slow the GUI . And listen to Amber he knows the unit very well .

I'll download it and flash it if my battery keeps getting short sessions. Stability-wise, some songs stopped playing and go to other songs. It didn't happen often, just several times. I haven't experienced freezes after the first two. Now I can shutdown, boot and play music without hanging, even after adding 10GB of music.

Hello. I have the new hugo and I am playing around deciding what to do as transport. My first try was my HDP r10 . Using the coax output. . Thus is making become confused.
If I play PCM up 24/192 it works fine. If I choose dsd the output becomes 24/88.2. but the bitrate on the GUI shows over 5k so dsd. . The actual output is 24/88.2 as the dac I am using displays the input info. Now this is really confusing me. The file I am playing is a download not a rip dsd 64. A little help here I am close to the edge .help

My battery still only lasts about 4 hours. The specs say it lasts 9 or 10 hours and 100 hours in idle mode. It's specified to need an 8 hour charge, but mine is charged in about 4 hours. It's like they replaced the 4800 mAh battery with a cheaper one. My player had the sticker seal on the box when I received it from a Japanese online shop.

first off make sure the wifi and BT are off. next the batteries will take abiut 5 charging cycles to reach there maximum run time. next the volume and type of device ued varies the run time as does the file kind . i em,s require less power then headphones . and playing dsd as well .
