    Wow - UAPP quality is very good, at least with my Focal Clears is great, still to try with IEM´s but not a "use case" for me since it doesn't play tidal offline albums, so OTG I'll only play local music on Mango OS.

    Thanks @BaHo. I tried but it always gave me an error the device was not associated. A moment ago just "by miracle" :-) my iBasso is showing as an associated device on play.google.com ... !!! so I just purchased from there - still to try but seems fine now. Thanks guys

    Thanks. No, only that one, it seamed from a reliable source. But I can try others. I thought Google Play Store was something like App Store from iOS, it seems not, its a PITA to get a straight reliable "official" link even from Google, I had to cross a jungle of crocodiles just to get this apk...

    Man, I must be very dumb, so after a few attempts and searches I musk ask for help: How can I install UAPP on my DX220? Apkpure is a kind of "app store" right? (I did install Tidal from there) but I can't find UAPP there so my guess is only on Google Play store? As I don't find a google play...

    You can play you offline Tidal tracks on Mango OS ??? Are they stored on the card accessible from other apps? That would be awesome

    Hi guys, I'm starting a Tidal hifi trial, have my home system streamer ok but before looking at DX229 options, just a quick question: What's the best option sound quality wise? use Tidal app from store or any better alternative? I would like to use iBasso as an offline device, storing music on...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Take a look at the hybrid Pro-Ject Pre box RS2 (tube stage is only for the pre out, not headphones) It has dual ESS9038Q2M DAC chips so some people might think it would be too analytical or bright with Clears but no, its a perfect match IMHO, full body, clear, detailed but not harsh or tiring at...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Never heard too - Can you please send a link to that history of failed drivers? Thanks

    Absolutely. Clear is a tiger, I don’t want to jail it in a zoo

    Focal Clear headphones

    I never heard a R2R DAC so I can't imagine how far are the "relaxed" highs, I imagine for the reviews I've read they would be a good match to Focal Clear. Unfortunately Denafrips ARES 2 doesn't have a headphone jack, it only works as a preamp - and surely is the primary function I'm looking for...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Thanks. I've seen some reviews saying it had a good full body so that's a surprise for me. Couldn't that be adjusted with the PEQ? I guess the settings are by output so I could dial some attenuation on mids/highs on 1/4 jack and still have the original signal on RCA out for my PRE, no? Regards

    Focal Clear headphones

    Thanks @vonBaron @pbarach - I've looked at Marantz, also at Audiolab MDAC, some mixed reviews on both. RME ADI-2 FS has very good reviews too. Denafrips Ares 2 looks interesting but not having a distributor in Europe and import customs are a let down. Didn't know about that Hegel, will take a...

    I don't think it matters. AFAIK its the same circuit, by other words when you burn on the SE output, all the circuit on the amp is active and burning. I might be wrong My 2 cents

    Great! I can´t imagine other reason than the one pointed by @CobraMan - enjoy. If I were you I would disconnect it again to see if I would gain another +2 hours ... just in case... :sob:
