    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I went back several pages only. Maybe my answer could be answered if I went further. But dont have the time. So I'll ask with the hope a reader knows the answer already... What is the number of latest backer or preorderer that has shipped? Personally I'm disgusted given how behind they are...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    Drop may sell new items at attractive prices to promote them (which is how I bought my Opus #1) -or- may sell items at end-of-life, sometimes rebranded as a Drop private labelled item, to breath some new life into them. Seems the latter here?

    E1DA DACs Discussion Thread (PDV2, 9038S, 9038D, 9038X, HiFiToy, HPToy)

    How well do you hear? I have affected/damaged hearing from loud music, speakers & headphones. The much more powerful PowerDAC V2 is just barely loud enough for me with the Ether Flow C. Not sure how they compare efficiency wise. Maybe another knows. I know tho the 9038s wouldn't be loud...

    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Ah, good reference. Thought everything was 7270. 7872 is a major step up. As is the ram & rom and rest of the specs.

    Ya. Plus, I'd be amazed if anyone could tell the difference with program material. Yes, maybe can locate all speakers with distinct individual speakers playing one by one, in demo mode. But when a concert or movie is playing? Would be surprised.

    To the contrary. I now imagine this could happen with other vital components of the circuitry before they ship mine. lol & argh

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Thanx! As I read that I thought... I know how long it takes to write things like that. They could have shipped a half dozen to dozen A16s in that time. Also, I thought -all- the hardware was done and the slow rollout was due to final firmware programming and measured testing of each unit. I...

    Lol? There's already an upgrade? What, pray tell is that? HDMI 2.1? (Sorry for not reading the thread! I only PEAK here to see if there is a post of what backer number is shipping these days. Else I'll want to slit my wrists if I spend much more time in this thread. 'Cuz I'm hundreds past...

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    All a matter of how much playback time / charge capacity you want, form factor / size, number of usb outputs, max watts out, w/ bi-direction usb-c or just micro usb-b charge in. Favorites are Anker and nrgGo. The rest is based on the use case. (I have a 19600 mAh battery pack but it's so...

    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Anyone think the M6 has enough horsepower that it will get the new firmware update that includes the Play Store like the upper end M11 just got? FiiO wrote this about a year ago ... But as it just got the Play Store I have to assume that has changed. Could it be in the works for M6 too? It...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Say... are there any reps of Audio Evolution / eXtremeSD here; not sure which. Edit: @Davy Wentzler or other... There is this pretty nifty little Android based player, the FiiO M6, that could be bettered by the use of your UAPP it. However it does not run the Google Play Store. And my...

    Man, this blows. After trying several different versions of installing Google Account, Service Framework, Play Service, and Play, it's always the same. First two install. Once Play Service is installed, the Service Framework goes into a loop of stopping. Luckily one can either restart in...

    @FiiO I know I'm late to the game. But is ES File Manager still the one you want customers to use? Who is the author in the app store? Because.. There are at least four apps named "ES file manager / explorer" in the app store presently. By different authors. I'd like to know if I did...
