Hisoundaudio Studio V 3rd Anniversary Edition Review - Page 66

post #976 of 1288

Fully agree, getting old waiting for initialization every time I start it even though the files never change.

I'm actually thinking of asking Jack if it would be possible to adapt a firmware that would:

 

  • Keep the scrolling
  • Allow the user to manually select whether or not to update the library or not.

 

The idea of manually updating would mean instant boot.  I'm using mine now only in folder mode - so it's a PITA waiting for the software initialisation each time it starts.  Far better for me to simply browse the folders.

 

Thoughts?

After owning the device for almost 2 years, I just found out that it supports Hi-Res files! It plays 24bit 48kHz music no problem! My 3rd Anniversary now sounds even better! Anybody tried it with the new Sandisk 128GB microsd?


Plays 24bit ..  News to me too

Does the 3rd anniversary have a special setting for this 24bit sound ?

post #978 of 1288

Nope. It just play 24 48 WAV. No flac.

Thankyou and that does make sense because the occasional WAV file i have played does sound more spacious and a step up in sound quality especially through better IEMs ..

My 3rd Anniversary seems to like turning off when knocked .. and doesn't always turn back on , until i connect to power source again ?

I think it will play 24 bit FLAC but only to 24/44. I haven't checked in a while.

post #981 of 1288

No only WAV 24/44 or 48

Flac is 16/44 only

Just loaded up a 24/44 FLAC and am listening as I type this.:smile:

Could it be a downsample to 16bit?
post #986 of 1288

Then it should play 24/48 flac as well. There is no way to know what is or isn't down sampled on a HiSound other that to ask them but the player isn't about trying to play everything or additional processing to do so. I believe that the DAC portion of the SOC is capable of 32 bit input so it would be more about the codecs etc. In the past, Jack from HiSound has stated the same res as I have in this thread so if we assume anything, it would be that 24/44 flac and 24/48 wav are being played native or being upsampled in the conversion process.

I haven't heard the MkII but I understand it's closer to the 120 than the standard 100. For me that would make the AK100 MKII better but at twice the price. Others have preferred the Anniversary 3 to the AKs.
