$999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage - Page 367

post #5491 of 5502

Now you lost me... I just checked calyx.kr and it seems that the latest firmware is 1.01, which is installed on my M and which gladly accepted your modded firmware. Where is the 1.02 coming from and is your firmware based on 1.02?

 

EDIT: Sorry, just re-read the messages regarding the AExxx serial numbers. Mine is an AHxxxx, so I guess I should not upgrade to v1.02.

I'm sure official FW is 1.01 but some people told me they updated to 1.02 but couldn't flash back to 1.01. So, I made this file for him to test and see if it works with my modified ROM and can be rolled back.

Thanks for clarifying! Btw, I "got used" to the less boomy sound of your updated fw :-) Still loving my M!

With pleasure. :)

Just got the M and scanned the thread. Having a love/hate relationship right now with this player. The SQ is great but suffers from the Sabre brightness/blaring issue. Sounds great at low volume, but as you turn up the volume the brightness and treble edge come out and starts to blare. However, the sound stage and note thickness is wonderful as is the amp. The amp is a hit or miss though as it seems to be running hot and easily overcome in complex passages where SQ breaks down. 

 

Did not see any work arounds to the UI issues in the thread. Has anyone found a quick way too add all tracks to a playlist at once to play in shuffle mode? It would take me all day to add albums or artists one at a time and impossible to find missed albums/artists as my library changes. Please tell me that there is a way to use an external software package to create playlists that can be added to the player to play from all internal and SD/MicroSD cards as a complete library.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Brightness and blaring was caused by ROM settings and capacitor size mismatch. There's also output current limit in factor too. I modded Calyx M for few people here and the result was great.

 

You can try my recent public ROM mod for smoother UI. I wonder if I can replace with launcher but doesn't seem possible right now.

Does the M sound more seriously and better than Aune M1?

Would it be crucial SQ upgrade from Aune M1 to Calyx M?

Keetakawee,

 

Can a mac download the firmware.

Would love to try it.

Wow, that is very interesting. Do you discuss these mods in a thread or just through PM? I am liking the M more and more over time and would love to find a way to make it work for me.

Now you mentioned it, I mostly talked about it in PM. Some people also sent Calyx M to me for fixing those problems. I also do all kinds of mods for other DAPs too in Thailand. Yesterday I deliver my ultimate DX90 mod to my old friend and he told me it's pretty much on par with AK380 but can enjoy more music genres. I'm also going to send my ultimate DX90 mod with modded VE Zen 2.0 to one customer today too. :)

The M and the Aune are very special DAPs in terms of SQ, but I am not sure I would say the Calyx beats the Aune in SQ, in fact, right now I would favor the Aune. Would have to listen again side by side, but owning the M does not stop me from wanting the Aune. My hesitation in buying the Aune is pretty shallow actually as it comes down to form/UI. The M is definitely eye candy even with its worthless UI. Will probably end up with an Aune soon. In terms of SQ, the only two DAPs I feel beat the M1 are the LPG and the new Sony WM1a/z. I personally think the Aune beats the AK380 in SQ, but the 380 kills it in UI and sex appeal.

 

The M is growing on me due to its sound stage and its thick notes along with a very very black background, but suffers from the choice of a Sabre - unless WindowsX has a fix for that. I am learning to live with its short comings though becoming addicted to the full sized sound.
