    Walnut Hi-Fi V2 WAV (& MP3) Player by wt - :ok_hand: screenless budget killer combo DAP/Amp :ok_hand:

    That post doesn't show whether it will play 44.1 or will upsample to 48k (which in my experience doesn't sound good). Too bad it also won't play any hi res. Some people said it sounds good. I'd like to hear more impressions of usb sound quality.

    Can someone please explain (or send me a link) where the USB performance of the available players is described? What resolution files can be played through USB on the newer Walnut, and the Zishua Z1 or Z2 using windows? Thanks.

    Finally received my nut today, and it would not recognize my TF card (fat 32, clean mp3s or wavs) - just yellow light (not blinking).  Newer 32gb class 10 formatted Fat32.  Thought it was broken.  Finally tried a different TF card and it worked.   What does the "hold" switch do?

    I'd like to try one of these Walnut Daps, but as mentioned they appear to be in short supply.  There is a company called Rose Electric on Aliexpress for about $33 usd delivered which seems the cheapest right now.  Is Rose reliable?  Anyone know when stocks will be replenished?

    Chromecast audio - can anyone comment on sound quality?

    Is there a way to tell the cromecast to play music from your network drive. For example, I imagine installing a foobar driver that would play through the cromecast?

    FiiO's new Q1 portable DAC-amp: Let's drink to "Happy Listening"!

    A couple of questions:   Using with usb windows foobar wasapi, windows volume still works. Should it be set to maximum? Is is better to use asio4all to bypass windows volume?   I can't seem to find a micro usb to micro usb otg cable. Are these available somewhere?

    FiiO's new Q1 portable DAC-amp: Let's drink to "Happy Listening"!

    The Sennheiser HD580, 600 and 650 all have the same 300 ohm impedance, and I think the amp in the q1 did a great job driving my 580s. I have no idea where the statement that the amp is only for iems came from, but it's wrong. The amp has a gain switch for hi and low impedance headphones.   I...

    FiiO's new Q1 portable DAC-amp: Let's drink to "Happy Listening"!

    I'm an idiot. By mistake I used a charge-only cable.  With a proper cable windows recognized it immediately.   I'm really impressed with the sound quality.  So far its dead-black quiet with the headphones I've tried, plenty of detail and very natural sounding, both through line in and as a USB...

    ECS Liva as audio server

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856501007   This seems like a great device for an audio server.  Completely silent pc, install foobar 2000, get a usb dac, and control foobar remotely.  Has anyone tried it?

    Need T-amp advice for bookshelf speakers

    Really like my pioneer bookshelfs (Andrew Jones).  Very inexpensive and excellent sounding.  I have the older series with the non-removable metal grills, but I've heard nothing but good things about the new ones as well.  By far best speakers in the price range.

    Goign for my first awesome speakers and amp setup for pc need suggestions

    Yea, szeros are much smaller, although heavy lil suckers for their size. But man do those pioneers sound good. That's why the zeros are sitting in the closet. Sent from my Nexus 7

    Vincedea Wall mounting not a good idea since they are rear ported. Will you back able to compare them with the super zeros and using the two amps? Sent from my Nexus 7

    Man, you sure change your mind a lot!   I have a pair of super zeros that I don't use anymore (sitting in a closet).  They are terrible without a sub, and just ok with one.  Very directional, and cold.  Speaker placement is extremely important.     In my opinion, the pioneers are a lot...

    Vincedea, you should definitely wait, and make sure your credit card works! I love the little extra bass of the 41s,but think you'll love either. Sent from my Nexus 7
