It is not the greed, it is just I am a student and I already have to pay for my SE5way ear impressions, remolding, shipping. I can't afford a dap right now so anyway I am waiting, maybe it will even go lower than this, maybe it won't. It is not the only option around either.

 

If I buy R10 right now, I will have to use my SE5way with bad right ear fit, so eventually bad SQ. So what is the use of buying high end dap if I don't get the SQ I am supposed to get. Every part of this audio chain will come to me eventually, it is just I have to pay attention when and where to spend my limited student money.

I am sorry , I did not mean to,impose finantional debt on you. . I understand. But I do not think it can go,lower . Not new.

If fact that is about half what I payed for it. And that would keep me from selling mine even if I wanted too. But I Do have no intention of selling it though.

The price is also surprising me too. I didn't think it would go that down. I think this will be the final step but thinking about next week we will have DX90, maybe it can get one last final cut. I won't lose anything by just waiting I guess (hopefully :happy_face1:).

Hi Guys

 

I'm thinking about the HDP R10...

 

Just wondering if it supports USB OTG?

 

One of the functions I would like to have is a powered Hard Drive that can hold files, which could then be read/played by the HDP R10 and perhaps passed through the coax out to another DAC as well. So basically connecting a standalone DAC and a standalone external hard drive.

 

Would this be possible?

Nope, no usb otg support. Get X5, DX90, DX50 or something like that. I am not sure but maybe ZX1 has usb otg, still don't count me on that.

Are we sure about no OTG support? I seem to remember Sorensiim managing to hook something up to the DX100 via OTG, and it appeared in the file browser... I could be wrong, though. I have to order some new cable to try it, I ordered the wrong OTG, I got Mini to USB instead of micro redface.gif...
Of course, the HDP-R10 is a stripped-down version of the DX100 in terms of OS, so what may be true on the one may not be on the other.

They are both based on the same version of android though. Let us know what you find out.

Hi,

I have read most of the pages of this topic.

Somewhere on the discussion, there is some talk about micro SD cards and how they affect Sound Quality.

It is stated that the Toshiba 16gb cards are the ones that give the best SQ.

I was wondering if anyone with a R10 has any experience with these Sandisk 64gb cards:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Ultra-Class-Micro-Adapter/dp/B0084DWD4Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1396861960&sr=8-2&keywords=sandisk+micro+sd

 

Cheers!

I have tried many brand from micro se card , the beet SQ is from Toshiba Exceria 8 GB and 16 GB

San disk 64 GB , SQ a bit thin and more to mid high

Please try it your self buy one 8 or 16 GB Toshiba Exceria and compare with San disk 64 GB
And please share your opinion here

I have never noticed a difference in sound quality in the various SD cards used.

Sorry, but I can't see how a storage method that reads digital data would make any difference.

 

Can you explain to me why it would???

It is stored the same way on each SD card, read speeds may differ but the data is the same on each one and processed the same.

One of those myths. You know, you hang around head-fi for sometime and you realize people believe what they want to believe.

For the theory is like you mentioned above
I can not explaned more what you wrote above
In My experiance i have noticed the SQ different that so Far Toshiba Exceria is My best micro SD Card
I Had compared to San disk , kingstone and Other brand
Please try The Toshiba Exceria and compare With Your existing now .
My goal hear on head fi that For new bie can direct buy the Good ones

There is no way the different sd cards would lead to different sound qualities. The music being read is digital, just 0s and 1s. One card will sound exactly like any other card unless a card is having problems with data transfer speeds.

That is kind of the same discussion with iDevice DACS and cables.

If an iDevice will only transfer the digital stream to an external DAC, like the Fostex HP-P1, then the USB to lightning cable wouldn't matter if it is a 20 dollar apple cable or a 200 dollar pure silver cable. The iDevice will just transfer 0's and 1's to the DAC.

True, not even 2 cards having different transfer speed should yield any difference in sound quality. Before playback happens the data has to be read from the SDCard to the internal memory/buffers. So the data written in the sdcard card should be a verbatim copy of what is  in the memory during playbank.

 

If there is a problem/flaw in the SDCard, the device would even fail to read it. There are so many snake oils in Audiophilia to begin with, it's just painful to see to reach at this level.

As long as the cable is well built, the price has no effect in the digital domain. a signal for 1 will always be 1 and same goes with 0. Checksums, buffering and other error-checking algorithms does their job when there is an error in transmission. The quality of the device at both ends of the cable matters most than the cable itself.
