Is that really your opinion?  ;-)

My hdpr10 has two headphone outs a optical and coax spidif out . With a line out too. The point is I do not use any of them except the headphone jack. And the digital transport out is to loud to use with my jh16/3a FP combo. So all that we are asking for may not good to use anyway. As with line outs and spidif,s there is no set standars for specifications .

I have never used digital coaxial out on a portable player. I don't think you need that compared to true line out, talking about portability..

I am with bmichels on this one... This is the last chance (in the near future) to get DSD via digital out (USB, Coax maybe a long shot) from a DAP..... ZX-1 and AK240 cannot do it..

@bmichels

 

So buy something else and leave us alone.

 

Seriously I and others have been plenty patient but this is turning into trolling. And judging from Calyx's reaction to you on Facebook, they would like you to go away too.

 

Your opinion has been expressed endlessly. The M is not for you. Give it a rest and us a rest too.

 

Please and thank you.

I am assuming the USB audio out is a firmware/software thing that can be added in the future..... Please correct me if I am wrong. :beerchug:

CHG, Calxy have addressed the issue. It's over.

 

Edit: I was referring to coaxial out. But I don't think USB out is a FW addon.

 

I really don't understand why this thread has become the not accept a good product for what it is thread. Calyx must be tearing their hair out.

Totally agree with ALRAINBOW, I used it once then bored, it is a feature that I can without a doubt live without, the portable device being portable is what matters most, if you want a desktop unit with all of the DSD bell and whistle then buy that.

Here is the owner telling us why it just does not make sense doing it:

And I quote:

"Some people ask/complain there is no digital out in M

Calyx M is accomplished of DXD of 32/384 and 128DSD. SPDIF can't handle these hi-rez digital signals so it is useless to have the digital out in Calyx M M

Furthermore, Calyx M has already a decent DAC inside already. We implemented ESS SABRE 9018 K2M very successfully as we did in Calyx Femto."

So number one, it's useless and number two the DAC is class one so why use anything else?

Can't argue with the engineering mind wink.gif

He was talking about pre-orders on the first page I truly hope he also meant discount for the early adopters. wink.gif
Regardless of it, it's a very nice device that seems to be priced just right.

AK is not sweating it, they are targeting a different class of users and to be frank, it's a hell of a device function wise but it does not have the M's heart Sabre DAC.
