    Shanling M0 - Nano size, touch screen, LDAC & aptX BT, USB DAC/transport and ESS Sabre ES9218P, FW 3.5

    This might be stupid question (but will ask anyway!). After using bluetooth - and before switching off with a long button press - is there any need or benefit in going into the settings/bluetooth options and switching off bluetooth with the on/off slider? I would expect the benefit might be...

    SONY NWZ-A10 Series

    Hi all. Would appreciate advice re getting DVD copies onto an A15. Basically I have about 25 DVDs which are some of my favourite bands live/in concert etc. ( such as Zappa's Does Humour Belong in Music)  I would like to rip them/copy to my A15. To be honest on such a small screen the video side...

    SONY NW-ZX100 DAP

    Hi goody I ordered last week on amazon uk at the 330 gbp price!! Just noticed as you have that it is now 435 gbp. What has caused the price to jump so much??   Can't wait to get this player next week. I have a 128gb card to put in.  My music collection isn't huge - around 110gb in total...

    SONY NWZ-A10 Series

    I mentioned in an earlier post (#5774) that a slight annoyance with my A15 ( sorry -I mistyped it as A17 in original post) was that when I connected via Bluetooth to an Anker A7910 speaker (which doesn't have a volume control) then the volume control on the A15 was disabled. The problem then...

    DX90. 2X Sabre,1st page: Downloads, info&inst. . ! Lurker0 FW Mod link 1st page !!. .NEW FW! 2.3.0 . . . . .

    Hi phallus 1975. Just to confirm the bug you mention (or at least very similar if not exactly same). With dx90 off -plug in charge cable-green circle appears but then disappears. Holding in the power button WONT make dx90 switch on. It clicks a couple of times- but doesn't switch on. Have to...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    Thanks for replies folks. Howdy-that's fairly reassuring that there's something like an hour to go even after reaching the "empty" mark!!  As I stated originally I have a couple of spares which I carry with me in a small leather carry pouch - so basically am going out with 15 hours or more of...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    Hi all. Just wondering what sort of battery life others are getting?  Been burning in for a couple of weeks -with a single wav music track on single repeat. I left it on low gain and volume set at 200. ( Is full volume and/or high gain better?) I'm getting about 4.5 to 5 hours from a full charge...

    New WESTONE W-SERIES

    Hi all. Hope you don't mind a slightly noobie question. Got some w20s on order. I understand they come with two cables - a braided "normal" cable and one of those in line/iPhone controls things...... with the latter already attached. I have no need for the "controls" ...... so logically might...

    The PA2V2 Thread

    Got to echo all the comments re the amp - and especially Gary's excellent service. I lost one of the little washer/screw things holding the in/out sockets tight. Gary mailed me several by return at no cost (to UK!)  He is a true gentleman!!    A word of warning though - if this is your first...

    New firmware 1.10 for X1050/60 (better browser)

    Hi Titaniumx3 I think it's very doubtful if Sony have done anything other than "tweak" the Netfront Browser. I certainly havent noticed any difference at all in anything other than the browser and the sound seems to be the same as before the firmware update. ( ie very very good!! IMHO). I...

    New firmware 1.10 for X1050/60 (better browser)

    Update went smoothly last night. It seems quite a lot faster to me - loading pages, moving between pages etc. Havent noticed any particular differences on the keyboard per se - because it's (obviously?!) still that "clunky" phone style/multiple button press thingie! To be honest - like most...

    New firmware 1.10 for X1050/60 (better browser)

    Hi all Just noticed in the other huge "got my X1060" thread that there's a new firmware for the X series just out ( thanks to Ilney post 2672!) WOW! SHOCK! HORROR! Sony comes up with a firmware update is a shock in itself - but one which is more than a quick bugfix too apparently. The release...

    Hiss in Sony A818?

    Just to add my quick input to the Sony/hiss debate. I have 808's - little hiss. 829 - quite a lot of hiss. 639 - some hiss. 1060 - almost no hiss. I'm using Etymotic 6is mostly and with all the above once the music is playing there's no real problem(IMHO) and I love the sound of my Sony/ETY...

    I have my hands ON the Sony X1000 Walkman - Impressions / Discussions

    Thanks Walkingman - appreciate quick reply. IE8's are quite low impedance -think my Ety's are 30ish ohm - so shouldnt be a prob. (and as you say - very very slight and not while music playing reassures me !!) Thanks.

    I have my hands ON the Sony X1000 Walkman - Impressions / Discussions

    Further thanks from me for the early thoughts filtering through. The majority seem to be pretty pleased with the SQ - at least as good as S series ?? But I saw one poster on AVforums mentions some hiss. I dont know what phones are being used ( and I'm wondering about the various noise cancelling...
