$999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage - Page 219

post #3271 of 4297

Yes, it is the magazine issue in which it was tested. We are in mid-June and they already released the next month's issue...

Ahh ok, that explains it lol

Thanks ;)

FWIW, my informal tests for the Calyx M have yielded about 6-6.5 hours playback time using solely 16/44 FLAC and minimal fiddling with the UI (30% volume, IEMs, screen on for about 5 minutes changing between albums, standard playback) and about 5.5 hours when playing a mix of DSD/mixed FLAC (24/192, 24/96, 24/88, 16/48, 16/44)/MP3 on shuffle.

@monkeygod-you are on with firmware,.6?

Calyx people said they won't sell their products via amazon or ebay. :/

Could be a good news for you calyx m users,
Someone close to the ceo just posted the information about june update(the end of june presumbly), here is the list
1. Complete solution for the noise problem with some iems and headphones by supplying free connector with extra ohms
2. Folder recognition and playing
3. Solution for too much heat
4. Quickening a library scanning speed
5. Better impedance matching
6. Extending battery life
More detail are needed to understand fully the extent of updates, but it seems some of them would involve hardware alteration. So I dont know how foreign users can benefit fully from this update. See the following picture:

Wow... sucks to be an early bird... glad i didn't jump in

No formal announcement about the plug or hardware update yet. But AFAIK there is no clue of hardware alternation. A user who has met Dr. Yi after the noise buzz reported that he said there will be no hardware alternation in a comment of the exact posting that was the source of the above picture of the plug. Well, if the hardware is altered, we will know because it will not be difficult to measure impedance of different units and the plug will be provided upon no hardware update. I personally believe the additional plug is a right solution, because it should result in better sound with phones that do not require it, but it will depend on your philosophy on audio. 

 

PS: If you look at the picture closely, it looks like that the register is 1.1 ohm.

I should add a comment. Someone who calls him/herself bringing 'informations' from Korean communities actually is mingling some truth and some lies or omission of points deliberately resulting in quite distorted impressions about both of M itself and the atmosphere of Korean communities. You will remember 3 hours battery buzz and $1500 price buzz in this thread. I won't designate who he/she is because I don't have time to waste in a flame war. I'm really busy. But it seems that he/she has some intension and I don't see what the community can benefit from such behaviors. So I'd like to say to be aware yourself.

This is quite enlightening.  So you can reduce hissing with resistors?  What type of resistor was this? It can't be more than 2ohms as more will not be good.  Interstin...  I wonder if that 2ohms makes that much of a difference with hissing?  Anybody have impressions with iems, and hear hissing?

 

Thank you oh.

The noise is NOT hiss. What I heard at a users' meeting was one of far lower frequency than hiss. I have some theory myself, but it is no more than my personal rough guess, so I think it is too early to share it with others.

I didn't tried the plug myself, but people tried it agree that it actually eliminates the noise. A guy reported the noise from his LCD-3? -X? (sorry, I don't remember) said it was eliminated by a different 3.5mm to 1/4 plug, so it looks like that the noise can be eliminated by a minimum difference in impedance.

So will this be a hardware upgrade for sure, or is that unknown? I was looking to get this in a couple of weeks... might be better to wait.

That guy's from Calyx users forum of Naver(a S.Korean portal) , called Maxlight

I'd wait as well. For now, this product has lots of issues to be fixed. Let's wait and see how they fix this device...

If they update hardware, they have to ask users to send back all of their products.

I don't hear any noise with mine, hissing or otherwise, with my JH13 Pros. Battery life is adequate, and heat is not an issue (it gets mildly warm, about the same as an iphone). The only change I really need is folder viewing, and it would also be nice to have faster library scanning and a faster boot time. Otherwise, this is still the best portable player I have heard.
