It's lucky it does, because I always forget to hit the power off switch and after 24 hours the battery empties.

Nope, I have not done it yet. Apparently it requires a Windows XP machine to run the flashing program. I tried Windows 7 extensively, even in compatibility mode, and I can't get it to work. 

 

I really want to figure it out because then I could flash my 960 as well as my HiFi ET MA8 and MA9. One of these days I'll find someone with an XP laptop I can borrow.

I thought that a Win 7 would suffice (read it somewhere). I got stuck in actually flashing the image..everything before that went smooth sailing..well..gotta find that XP machine, Im sure it still exists somewhere.

Is there someone who have both 960 and Studio V 3rd Anniversary and can compare them in terms of SQ?

Lol, I have searched and searched for this answer for months but no one came forward.. So, I decided to get the Ihifi960 because of all the wonderful outputs it has, and I dont know if this was ever mentioned but it scans my 64gb card (over 2k files) Instantaneously...WIN

I have Studio V for tests now and to my ears it is incredible. 960 seems to be more user friendly and have more features. So if the SQ would be on the same level as Studio V then I would go for 960 (unless I will get good price for Studio V's test unit of course if they will be willing to sell it to me:D).

Actually the Studio V was my first and only choice b4 i stumbled upon project's review and I immediately fell I love lol. Also talked extensively to the ebay seller, pollychen (who has both) and he ultimately recommended the 960..then bob's your uncle..

nazrin313, what is the red amp underneath the 960 in your picture?  is there a particular reason you feel the 960 needs an amp?

 

thanks.

thanks.

Its the ekekit tu-hp01 hybrid amp... Actually the 960 doesn't need an amp and can power my cans and iems with ease.. However, it was a lil cold in term of sound sig when using just the dap (was using the a161p in that pic) ... The ekekit, being a tube amp (on low gain) adds a lil warmth which i prefer...

With my sd3 (being a warm iem) , this combo is brilliant with high gain setting with the amp, the amp will bring the mids and highs forward giving a natural sound to the sd3..im not lying when i say this combo makes the sd3 sounds like headphones... Scary good
