Introducing Lotoo PAW Gold - Page 34

post #496 of 3062
Lotoo Paw has USB 3.0 support transfer speed up to 90mbps if you have a compatible card.
They had own reason not to add internal memory.
Actually there is internal storage for firmware 128 MB :-)

Yep I believe the Paw battery battery pack has 7.4v written on it, but because it has 6 pin wire out, that leads me to believe the Paw is not using the two 3.7v batteries in series, but rather using one 3.7v battery for each rail, while hm901 is using one 7.4v battery for each rail. As for the separation in low gain, the Paw starts at 95bd at 100hz and gradually drops to 55db at 20khz, I don't know if this is audible or not, only know that I haven't seen this in any other dap measurement.

Still multiples of any phono cartridge. It's been addressed. Would be interesting to know why they made that choice but it's rather immaterial to me as it sounds no less separated nor filled etc than Hi gain which is available to those it may matter to. Ak240 only has one gain setting. Easy enough to treat the Lotoo that way as well and get an even better separation #.

 

Rail voltages and battery voltages will differ. I generally consider the main rail, the highest DC supply voltage. Things get regulated up from the battery and then back down from there. I wasn't doing a tech evaluation and just noticed it when curious about the use of some largish tant cap values.

 

I wouldn't rely on pin count for battery config but it would certainly allow that and I wouldn't doubt you if you have that info.:smile: I suspect AK uses one 3.7 battery. I once opened the ak120 I had and seem to remember that but don't hold me to it. 

 

The mechanical engineering is excellent. It's rather easy to disassemble without much risk of damage or need to disconnect layers for access. No prying, sticking or need to pull ribbon cables etc.

^ Even AK240 uses a single 3.7v 3250mAH battery.

 With the cards available, you're cutting hours in 1/2 with usb3.0. and don't need card slots ot adapters for high speed transfers on the go.

I suspected as much. Seems to work well. :beerchug:

New video of Lotoo PAW Gold

Nice enough vid. The function button can be dedicated to many different task such as mute, -20db, and other shortcuts and is not specifically for display. If you watch the next vid, you get a good view of it's size next to other players. Without a reference, the pics generally make it look bigger than it actually is. I prefer it in hand to things like the x5. How one feels about it in a pocket is personal but I find it quite acceptable.

A general question what do you prefer, wav or flac when using the PAW?

post #504 of 3062

I don't know. I only listened with wav. :wink_face: This answer will be a lose, lose. If I prefer wav, as I generally do, some will point at the player or discount that I can hear a difference, LOL. I actually like FLAC on my Anniversary 3 because it gives it a bit of smoothed out fill but I don't see myself wanting that here. I'll pm you when I do it.

 

What I do like is that it handles wav files so well. :beerchug: Something I haven't checked is whether it can handle broadcast wav which is a professional version of wav. Almost all DAPs won't handle these raw files that need to be rendered to standard wav but I'm now curious because of it's source. It's really immaterial for it's purpose set but I may try that as well.

Problem I have with single wav is that the final cuesheet for some reason includes the combine wav as part of the tracks. Minor issue but still annoys me. 

post #506 of 3062

Most of the files I use need to be manually tagged (LP rips and masters) so a good folder/file reading system is fab for me.

From my SACD ripping days I got around 200 GB of SACD which are mostly orchestral. I normally rip the as a single dff file and use a cuesheet to navigate without any gaps however I notice that lotoo has a bug that it can only handle up to 15 songs, all the songs after the track 15 come out as static noise. This is really a major issue for me. 

Anyone else have the same issue?

Thanks, Audionewbi. Now I need to dig into the thread again to see what the specs and what different experience it brings to the table. smily_headphones1.gif

PAW gold is still remains the flagship, PAW 5000 is lower end model, spec unknown yet but it has optical out (if they haven't changed that part).

Once I know more I will update the first post and post it here.
