Hisoundaudio Studio V 3rd Anniversary Edition Review - Page 72

post #1066 of 1288

No - it's not normal.  First thing I would do is connect it to your computer, and then delete the "system" folder on the internal drive.  Don't worry - it regenerates.  Then eject the player, disconnect and reboot.  If that doesn't fix it - maybe you need to check your media tags.  I've got mine stripped down to bare basics.  Sometimes an erroneous tag can play havoc with the database, and because it always scans the cards on boot-up, this could lead to freezes when folder browsing.

 

If you want a fool proof method - and don't mind just playing in folder view (which is what I do a lot of the time now) - simply duplicate your music (from your main PC library), then on the duplicate copy - remove all tags.  Mine is sorted in folders : Artist > Album > Song.  The song titles always start with the track number and title - EG Led Zeppelin > Mothership > 13 Stairway To Heaven.  Unfortunately this kills sorting via the database - but it does solve a lot of the possible hassles with freezing etc.

 

 

This is how I run (amnd the reason I know both ways work) ......

I have one 64Gb card with my entire collection in aac256 (all tagless), then I have a second card with my most used albums all in redbook flac (all tagged).

 

Both methods work for me - but I did spend quite a bit of time meticulously tagging everything on the FLAC card.

 

Good luck.  Can still be a fickle player (software) - but I keep it simply because once you're playing - nothing else really matters :D

Brooko, I deleted all the tags and images except for titles, artists, albums, disc no. and track no. I deleted system file from the player. Studio scans my card at first boot for about 4 min; at any further boots this is shrinked to about 1.5 min. Studio does not freezes during the boot but only when I try to enter into a song in the External Media folder (this does not happen when I'm in the Music or Now Playing folders).

Although all my files plays well at the right hand side of few files I see questions marks. What does this mean? Can those file be the cause of my problems?

Could be.  They may be characters (fonts) that the player can't recognise?  Or are they a format that the player doesn't play perhaps (eg 24/96)?

 

Sorry - I'm not really much help here.

 

Another way to trouble shoot is add an album at a time to the card (ie start from a blank card).  Its a slow way of doing it - but at least then you'll be able to pinpoint any folders/files that are causing issues.

When my SV3 first arrived, it had 3 tracks in the internal memory (assume test tracks) which I duly deleted.  Form that point on I could no longer use tagging to sort by artist, album etc (folder modes till worked fine).  Through trial and error I worked out that as soon as you have a single tagged track in the internal memory, all your tagging becomes available again.  Weird - but it works.  I use folder mode for virtually all my listening anyway.  The one thing I wish HSA would so is allow me to turn off scanning the card at boot.  I don't need it scanned for folder mode.  That would cut the boot time down to a couple of secs.  I've suggested it to Jack - but at this stage he couldn't see it happening.

 

As far as HDMS - I'd suggest you ask jack direct.  I've never used it - but it does appear that its so that you can use the headphone out as a line-level signal (ie to a separate amp).


Great tip, I just tried this and it worked,.

Hey guys and (and  Newlyweds Lee730 and H20, Congrats!!)   Just wanted to pass on that I am selling my 4mos old, still under warrantee,  V 3rd Anniv, bought straight from Jack.   Mint condition, for $300USD.   I have gotten the less bright and less analytical X5, which is a better match for my current IEM and Custom.

Apparently they have been going back and forth between Hawaii and Australia, but the marriage took place in Hawaii where it is legal.   I was unable to get pics of them together, perhaps others have some.   All I have is some Devils Food cake that H20 got into and some catnip that Lee got into but can't get them to come out, well, speaks for itself, they were taken at the Official Church of Satan.

is it possible to have a future support to 24/192 FLAC via firmware upgrade? it would be really very nice to be able to hear something at this level from within the realms of this DAP. That would be really SWEET! :atsmile:

it does 24/48 WAV files, and that's the highest it will ever do. Also, Hisound are not very well known for providing firmware updates for their daps.

yes i know it does but actually i just wonder if the implementation of such regardless of what DAP can be thought or perceived as in a way firmware-dependent or purely hardware-based. The same goes as why some of the latest offerings in the DAP market (X3/X5/DX50/DX90, etc.) can do 24/192 and the rest just don't.

I just put a Sandisk 128GB micro sd card in my 3rd Anniversary and it works perfectly. I formatted it in FAT32 using GUI

format. I have 87GB of music on it and it takes 2m 10s to boot up.
