$999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage - Page 322

post #4816 of 4829

Some new update regarding the battery issue where the battery is less than 1% and the player refuses to turn on and allow the users to play music while it is charging.

- place "song number / number of songs in album" between current playtime and duration of song
- when picking an artist do not show all albums in an expanded view. Add an option to the preferences for a "compressed" mode, in which only the list of albums is shown; tapping on an album unfolds the list of songs
- add an option to the preferences to let the user choose how a usb connection is treated; let's say, the M ran out of juice, you plug it in and boot it. Now you want to switch to USB DAC... you can't unless the battery has reached a certain level. The only way I know of to choose the usb connection type is to unplug and plug again, but the M will tell you that battery is too low and shut down automatically. Not good!

I guess that the points mentioned above are easy to solve via firmware upgrades. Do you know how to contact the folks at Calyx / Digital & Analog to highlight those wishes?

Oh and battery life... 3100mAh on the M vs 2350mAh on the AK120. The M plays almost 5h of ALAC with screen off, the AK120 more than 13h. My M does not get warm. Where does all the juice go to? I would assume that this energy has to be dissipated somewhere!

Edit: Interestingly, the Cayin N6 has even a bigger battery (5600mAh) and a similar performance as the M (5-6h). What kind of magic are the guys at AK/river doing to get so much playtime out of their devices?
My Cowon P1 gives me 10 hours plus for mix of red book flac and HD flac.

It can be found on the back of the unit. Think its the first line.

Thanks for this. This has really bugged me so glad there is a fix. Updating now.

it is kind of weird that the "fix" is restricted to that range of serial numbers...can't help but feel the serial numbers outside these numbers are different from the rest

I agree, and it would be very interesting if folks with serial numbers affected could share with us if, after the firmware update, there are any changes in the battery play time as well.

I have the 519. AFAIK theres no changes to battery life. Just fixed the annoying problem of unable to start while plugged in at 1%

My sample also has the screen glueing problem. Apart from that the way the buttons on the side work puzzles me. While the screen is on, I can pause and skip without problems. When I push the power button once to switch off the screen, the side buttons are active for about 15s only. After that, pressing them has no effect. I have to push the power button again to bring both the screen and the side buttons back to life again.

Do you get the same behavior?
post #4826 of 4829
Yea same issue here.

Same here. It's weird.

post #4828 of 4829
I am certain they will fix it eventually, I am willing to ignore all the current issues based on how much I am enjoying it with almost everything I pair with it.

I think that you are referring to when the player is paused? Once the screen is off and the player is paused, it goes into some kind of power saving mode and you have to push the power button to bring it back to life. I don't think that is something that they are going to fix.

 

However, when the screen is off and the music is playing, my side buttons all work. I assume that this is fairly universal.
