Strange because I am able to open up the updater from the firmware I have on my machine?

Yep me too, so there is something not quite right with what you are doing.

"I actually get the exe to open, but then I get an error, "unable to open firmware.ab". Tried it a few times, same result."

Are you right clicking on the file(.exe) and choosing to run as administrator?

Nope but it doesn't hurt to try. Maybe that could be a possible issue in his case.

No, just a regular left click, multiple times, same error. Guess it won't hurt to try the right click

administer bit. Could the computer's antivirus (Kaspersky) cause this kind of error on a download?

Well if it thought it was a virus yes it could corrupt the file. So you may want to turn off the antivirus redownload the file and then run it as administrator. Because I don't get an error when running the executable. It runs at which point it expects you to plug in the Studio V to upload the firmware.

Just like it suggests, Dynamic firmware sounds more errrr dynamic...biggrin.gif and it really does.

The hiss was slightly less on the Ba firmware but not by a lot and the sound quality wasn't as good. As sauntere mentioned above the dynamic firmware is indeed more dynamic and lively sounding ;).

BA may be flatter sounding (dull and lifeless in comparison) if you are after that type of signature. Personally I feel dynamic is quite a bit better. Would not have been so enamored with the Studio if it only had the BA firmware. Would have been so so then IMO. I'd say BA is more suited to an IEM that is already too bright and detail oriented and would be more suited with a flatter/duller sounding source to bring balance to the sound. I think BA had more bass quantity overall but the dynamic firmware has more punch to the sound.

If I remember the directions from the includde word file, it has you connect the Studio before running the exe...did you mean it to be done differently?

From beginning to end, I did exactly as follows, after which all files worked flawlessly:

 

  1. With the Studio-V already off, push the RESET button down for a second or two, then release.
  2. Hold down the MIDDLE key for 2-3 seconds, after which the player shouldn't turn on of course, because of step 1. Then, release the MIDDLE key.
  3. Wait ~15 seconds.
  4. After ~15 seconds, hold the UP key, and all the while, connect the USB cable to the Studio-V.
  5. The windows 'da-dun!' sound should confirm that the Studio-V is connected.
  6. Continuing to hold the UP key, and launch the respective firmware .exe file (StUpdaterApp_4MIN.exe in my case; the latest Studio-V dynamic firmware file)
  7. At this point, the Studio's screen should appear all fuzzy/grainy, which is what you want. Once this appears, you may now release the UP key.
  8. Within the program itself, make sure 'Format Data Area' and 'Full media Erase' are CHECKED.
  9. Hit start, and left the software do it's job.
  10. Upon completion, safely remove (very important) the Studio-V, switch it on, and confirm that it's fully functional.
  11. Reconnect the Studio-V, drag and drop whichever tracks/albums were initially displaying questions marks, and wait for the files to transfer.
  12. After the files have transferred, once again, safely removed the Studio-V.
  13. Switch it on again, go into the source manager and located the files/albums that were just transferred, and confirm that there are no more question marks.
  14. All file formats should now work flawlessly.

 

The directions above are not mine and are from a former headfier. These directions are much more thorough than the one included in the word document and are easier to follow. As mentioned earlier also try running the actual updater program "as an administrator" (right click, run as admin) which could also be causing you issues (if you don't have the proper privileges in windows).

You can simple copy the unpacked firmware-file in the root-directory, reboot > now you have this firmware on the player !!
