Hisoundaudio Studio V 3rd Anniversary Edition Review - Page 38

Mine showing DT-Dynamic / 2013.01.15

(Brand new unit)

 

Operating OK - except for the center button (timing).

 

Manual says 2-3 seconds hold to turn off.  Mine (under this FW) is actually more like 1 second.  Makes it almost impossible to go back one folder - have lost count of the number of times trying to do this, and accidentally switching the unit off.

 

Very frustrating.  Love the sound.  But a 5 year old could have designed a more functional UI.  Frustrated!

 

How long on the center button for the 20111223 DT firmware (switch-off)?  If it's better, I'll use the older FW.

 

TIA

Paul

Where do you get the FW? I go to Hisound audio and to the section with the firmware but there is nothing to download.

I don't know that version but the 20130712 I tried had a funky folder arrangement in some formats. Off takes over a sec. but not that much. I don't have an issue with accidentally switching off but it's something I have done.

OK - thanks.  I'll provide feedback to Jack.  If they changed that one little thing (via a firmware update) - ie longer press time for the on/off - then I could live with this.  Without it - I'm not so sure .......

So where do you get the latest firmware??

post #561 of 1140

Not sure - mine is a brand new player (I just bought it).  Came with it installed.  I have to email Jack tonight - so I'll ask him if they have somewhere (web address) where past and current versions are stored.

2011.12.23 DT firmware and have never had any problems with accidentally switching off the unit while trying to go back in the menu.

When you mention lag in the menus that sounds like that crappy updated firmware they released recently and then rescinded.... Are you able to scroll up and down continuously by just holding the up or down button? Or do you have to repeatedly click the buttons to scroll through the menus? That is the biggest factor for me reverting back to the older firmware.... I can replicate lag in the menus depending on the scenario. Such as switching between the internal memory and the external memory. Then again when you do this it also will get rid of lag afterward. Depends on how many folders you've gone through. You can also stop the playback of a song by holding the middle button long enough to stop playback. This could take some practice though. I tend to hold it for a short bit then let it go and do it again which stops playback. You should have no lag when you do this and then look for a new song. I did tell you the UI isn't a strong point of this player Brooko ;).

did someone tried the orginal firmware on studio 3rd ? could you tell the difference in sound between orginal and dynamic ? Personally i tried dynamic and BA but only difference i could hear is that dynamic is just more loud. Also i think 31 volume bars is too small amount for such powerfull dap like studio . On dynamic fw i hear too big gap in loudness between volume 15 and 16 . On BA is pretty much the same but between volume 21 and 22.

My God, you listen with the volume on 15-16 ???   Do you still have eardrums ? Maybe you are using super hard to drive cans..

Holding the scroll down scrolls one directory entry approx every second.  I've emailed Jack & asked about other firmware.  I won't review it until I get a chance to see if it can be improved by changing to a former version.  Really like the sound of this though.

I take my 100ohm ER4S up to 23-24 sometimes, she's pretty rocking out by that time.

I can hover around 15 with 32ohm IEM.

You guys are going to have to type in CAPS. I can't hear you.:basshead:

post #569 of 1140

I usually listen with the volume on 7.... That's with Fitear F111s..... Anything beyond 12 is just too much...

Lol but the 3rd ANV has more power than the 2nd edition doesn't it? I only own the 2nd edition, I just pretend to hang out with cool 3rd ANV crew.

I will get a 3rd eventually. ;-)
