    Comment by 'BRCMRGN' in item 'iBasso DC01 Hi-Res Balanced DAC cable adapter'

    On Windows 10, my DC01 only works with 16/44.1, 24/44.1 and 16/88.2. On my Note8, it works with Neutron but not with Tidal.

    Astell & Kern KANN - DAP with Massive Storage & Battery

    I have used guiformat.exe for years. The only issue that I've ever had (I have more than 20 DAPs) with SD cards is with the Kann. I had one 400GB card that would never stop scanning. I removed all non-music from the card (pdf album booklets and one video) with no change. I finally made a...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    I'm using the same version and it multitasks very poorly. If I do a search while downloading to offline, Tidal usually crashes before I complete typing the search string. There are other combinations of tasks that also cause it to crash. I'm now doing most of my Tidal offline from an Activo...

    Astell & Kern AKR02 SCAM

    I tried several times to get a replacement from A&K, with no luck, so I tried the Q-Jays cable and it does work. Unfortunately, it looks like it's out of stock on the Jays website. I really like the AKR02, but I can't recommend it at $1,400.

    The HiBy R3; The New Double Dac R3 PRO on Sale Now !!!

    Mine finally arrived. Never did get a tracking number. DHL called promising to deliver Friday. They finally showed up Monday at 5PM (in a Hertz rent-a-truck). Very shaky fulfillment process.

    If you Could Listen to 1-IEM Forever....

    Not the best at any one thing, but it sounds very good with almost everything. I like the small size (you can sleep with it). It's a very good all-purpose IEM.

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon 2.0 - Owners Impressions

    I have a channel imbalance (almost no output on left side) on my SE output. I sent it in for repair and they couldn't find a problem. I only turn it on once or twice a week (it's in my office) and the problem may only show up when the amp is cold. I My left channel on SE seems dead when the...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I have the same setup. I got a Moon Audio Black Dragon adapter cable - 2x3.5mm female to 4.4mm male. Not cheap, but their cable are high quality and they can make anything.

    Adventures in Balanced Cables for IEMs

    I do still user the W4 and W4R. I have several balanced cables that I use on the W4R, but the gains on the W4R are nowhere near as much as on some other IEMs. Harder to drive IEMS are usually better on balanced and some players (like Pono) are much better on balanced output. Knowing what I...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    I used mine originally just for Tidal. I use it to try new stuff, but I usually don't stream, I download locally (128GB internal is nice for that). I buy a lot less since I started using Tidal. Since the 400GB cards came out, I can put my whole 16/44 and HIDEF FLAC library on the ZX2, as...

    HiFiMAN HM650 Portable Music Player Impressions Thread

    I have the same problem on my HM-650. I updated the firmware to 2.004 and changed my SD card from EXT4 to FAT32, but whenever I restart the unit, it only see the directories on the SD card -- no files.
