    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    I have this cable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F1RH7ZM/?coliid=I2DJT8K6KX3P9H&colid=1W473HGBLSWOP&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it ordered for my M300 Planars. They seem to have decent reviews, and are a very good price. I'll be getting them on Monday, so I can give a better opinion of it then...

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    I can't comment on most of your Tidal/MQA questions, but I believe others have mentioned that MQA tracks can be streamed to the 30r. Unfortunately it can't do offline Tidal playback due to it being a custom Linux OS, vs Android that is used on the 300r. There is an equalizer, but I don't know...

    In case anyone is interested, this is the reply I got from Pioneer re the open source software mentioned on their site: we kindly thank you for your interest. We regret to inform that contrary to the information on the website the XDP-30R firmware does not contain any open source software...

    I'm not noticing this with KZ ZS5's unbalanced. But it really depends what "a little thicker" means in relative terms. Any well known music you can suggest to test with?

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Has anyone found any cheap/good 2.5mm balanced cables with 2 pin connectors for KZ IEMS? I bought one of their 3.5 MM silver "upgrade" cables , and could re-terminate with a 2.5 MM TRRS, but I'd like to confirm if all 4 wires go all the way to the connector. Given that it's pretty cheap to...

    How about this: http://www.lunashops.com/goods.php?id=5628 I can't vouch for the quality, because I haven't ordered any yet, but they are the only one's I've found with real solder lugs.

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    Nice unit, if it fits within your budget, since it is more than 50% more expensive than the DP-S1 at the moment. Being android based, it can be customized, and I noticed a mention of streaming from a local NAS, which I think would be a welcome option on the XDP-30/DP-S1. Does anyone know how...

    Sorry, not sure where you are located. I quietly complain about the cost of items in Canada vs the US, but I can appreciate that it can cost much more in other countries. I was able to purchase mine locally for the CDN equivalent of $200US, so I was fortunate.

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    Good question. I was hoping that the various vendors had settled on a standard but apparently not. According to this blog entry http://www.diyaudioblog.com/2016/02/headphone-connectors-pins-pinouts-for.html it looks like AK and Hifiman/Oppo are using two different configurations. I wonder if...

    I thought someone had mentioned another forum where we could post issues that Pioneer/Onkyo may be monitoring. Can anyone elaborate? Or, is there a support email?
