    I recommend getting LZ 8-braid copper cable while you are waiting for the A5s. I find that it is a good match. There is no memory wire and the cable is so supple (besides having good SQ)! It is a good daily IEM for me... Hope you will like it too.

    I am sorry to hear about defects in some units. I will continue to listen to the AT using LZ's 8 braid copper cable while it lasts... Sounds nice to me out of the Sony ZX300. Looking forward to more news about the new filters.

    Great to hear that you managed to resolve the issue with the card, and enjoying the unit now. I never have issue with card on the FA1. (The Sony ZX300 is more fussy when it comes to the card used.) I think there is a very short gap (maybe half a sec) between tracks, so not true gapless.

    1) No, it cannot be used as a USB DAC. 2) I have no idea. 3) Yes, you can change the language to English or any other major languages. I hope this helps.

    @Nymphonomaniac, if your IEM is terminated with 2.5mm plug (AK-style), then you can use a direct 3.5mm male to 2.5mm female TRRS adaptor. This is because the FA1 is 3.5mm TRRS AK-style (and not Hifiman-style); it is not the usual way. But with this adaptor, you will be able to use the...

    Haha, don't worry, I am not even based in China. I can read Chinese though, and have checked with F.Audio about their firmware. The latest version should be dated 4 Dec, and they are working on the next version now. The latest version can be found on https://pan.baidu.com/s/1eS8NN0m , and...

    Everyone, what is the recommended setting? I like it on DirectSource on. This means I cannot activate DSEE HX. Many thanks, and Happy New Year!

    I did compare the FA1 to my friend's Ultima. While the Ultimate is better in many aspects (e.g., screen, power, responsiveness, bass texture, details), I feel that the FA1 has the same sound signature and I cannot justify the >10 times difference in price based on what I heard. Looking forward...

    I strongly suspect that the metal casing is grounded and serves to lower the noise. This is because I will see electrical sparks when my USB charging cable accidentally touches the metal case. Scary, but no damage done. Besides incorporating the power-hungry AK4497 DAC chip (I am not sure...
