4 hours only?? I can't believe it... why is that?
I just ordered an R10. I wish mine plays more than 8 hours :(
I have just finished reading the 75 pages in this thread. All of them. Even the ones with dummy spits. Is there a prize for this achievement?
Overall, I am convinced enough by the variously expressed pov's that the HDP R10 is the way to go, compared to the lesser AK's on performance and the pricier AKs on value. And compared to the HM901 on price / performance. And the iBasso DX50 / DX90 on performance and reliability. And the X3 / X5 on personal experience.
Thanks to this extended commentary, I was able to make this choice without the benefit of a physical comparison of all the above-mentioned DAPS. And I make my choice with eyes wide open with regard to the HDPs limitations, quirks and production termination. Currently $680 on amazon.
So; respect, head-fi! And thanks.
Now to iems!
I'm not able to invest $1000+ on state of the art / custom earphones but I have been impressed with the available reviews of FAD Heaven 4 / 5 / 6s. Does anyone have a view on (or experience of) compatibility between these iems and the HDP R10. My reading of the FAD Heavens' capabilities makes me think they would be a very musical / non-fatiguing match requiring no additional power.
Thanks for any suggestions. (However, if your suggestion is to consider another DAP, please re-read Pages 1-75 of this thread before responding.)
i don't get sony why don't u use 8.0.3 version as recommended so we can then judge the problem better
so thats weird no final 8.0.3 version, this is why I am torn which to buy the dx100 or the HDP, since the updates on HDP stopped this means then 8.0.2 might be the final official version, so to solve ur problem u might try to use the beta version
