    Firstly, thanks for the quick reply - much appreciated. I'll try the media scan option. I'm not one for playlists, as strangely (it seems) I listen to albums! I will check the playlists box is unchecked anyway. I do leave everything on MicroSD, rather than on the player - so I'll try on the...

    Anyone had any issues playing DFF files? The tracks load, but as you as you hit play it comes up with an "unplayable file" error message. Any ideas?

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig [Part XIV]

    AK SE100, Atlas Xeno IEM cable and Shure SE846 with Westone Star tips - overkill for the 6:21 train, but I love it. Started a few years ago with an iPhone and A-Jays headphones, before trying a Fiio X3, then an AK Jr with Shure SE425s... before jumping to an AK70 with Shure SE535s, then an AK70...

    I've just moved from Shure SE535s to SE846s (using the same Atlas Zeno IEM cable). The reality is they are much ore detailed and better suited to the SE100. The bass is clear, punchy and fast whereas I felt it was lacking a bit with the 535s. I must try the 846s with the AK70 Mkii before I...

    Yep... I had no idea. Why would there be lossy compression in a non-lossy format? Anyway, slightly tangental to the SE100 thread - which incidentially, I am loving.

    OK, I've had a little review of a couple of albums this morning.

    I actually hadn’t appreciated MQA was lossy!!!

    Interesting... there are things on Onkyo that aren’t on 7digital! I usually get my music from Qobuz, so hoping they’ll move to MQA.
