    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Thanks for the reply and the explanations Joe. I did, indeed, try tapping those icons but I guess I'm just thick enough that I still didn't really understand what they were telling me. Your forbearance is greatly appreciated. :)

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    I just got an OTA firmware update to my R6. New firmware version is reported as 1.20GBeta. Hiby Music app version 1.4.0 I don't recall everything the notes reported as new but the notable ones I remember are: * Support for Idle shutdown added to the battery settings * Support for USB in -> R6...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Now that I've had my R6 for a week, I just wanted to post that I am truly loving this DAP. Prior to this, I was using -- and was quite happy with -- a Fiio X5III. But I find the R6 interface much more responsive and less complicated that my Fiio (no switching between "Pure music mode" and...

    That's what my R6 reports as well and the "Check for updates" states that my software is currently up to date.

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Quick dumb question for the collective: I'm expecting delivery of my new R6 "soon". I've currently got a 200 GB micro-SD card with my music on it that I've been using in a Fiio X5III. Am I good to simply move the card into the R6 and perform a scan or should I be reformatting the card and...

    I do not. The hardware guys at my work might have something but no promises.

    While I agree with the later comments that the firmware itself is not to blame for the battery swelling, I have to object to this one statement. I use(d) my Fiio X5III *daily* with no case on it. I would have noticed any bulging of the back cover immediately (and, in fact, did). Most of the...

    I'm sure it's just a coincidence but my X5III has been fine since I got it in March of 2017 and I just upgraded the FW from 1.2.1 to 1.2.3 yesterday and that's when I noticed the back was starting to bow out. I've reached out to Fiio via their support email but your experience makes me think I...

    Just for a point of reference, the physical buttons are working just fine for me and I'm running FW 1.2.1. Hopefully Fiio's suggestion above fixes things for you.

    Dare to believe, Darren! I've saved untold thousands of dollars by choosing to believe that my X5III's sound is perfect! :)

    Thanks for the link WitzyZed. I don't have a Facebook account so it never would have occurred to me to look there. Not sure why Fiio didn't post those same notes to their forum here (they updated the thread to state that 1.2.1 is the latest FW but didn't include the change notes). Here's the...

    Fired up my X5III this morning and received an OTA firmware update to 1.2.1. Things seem to be working fine but I can't really tell what has been updated. So far, no posts (here or on the Fiio site) as to what has changed but I'm sure that's coming.

    I'm having no issues using the hardware track skip buttons in Pure Music mode either. No crashes when skipping forward or backward. No problems with onscreen Play/pause in Fiio Music app here. Verified that the hardware button works fine as well (just in case!) So far, after a day of use...

    I've got MediaMonkey installed on my X5III and it works fine. I haven't tried the WiFi syncing though. Aside from the initial loading of songs onto the microSD cards, I don't find the USB transfers to be slow enough to bother me. As for MediaMonkey on the X5III, originally, it wouldn't...

    I use my X5III in a K5 dock all day at work and I haven't noticed the return of the "half-volume after pausing" bug. That bug was driving me nuts in the past so I would certainly notice if it had returned. I'm not sure what, if any, difference in protocols when interfacing with the DK1 vs the K5...
