    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    That is great! Some 80% of this thread is about Tidal issues such as the LED colour being pink instead of magenta when playing mqa files at 768² kbps at 64X decoding 😂

    Gotta keep the 99s since I'm Romanian :) , but my soul is with Sony. Got both their flagships, cans and IEMs. Simply spectacular with M17, both of them.

    Yeah, got some Dekoni angled sheepskin pads that made the 99s really comfortable. The M17 is driving them like a champ, wringing the last detail and the lowest notes the Mezes are capable of. Listening balanced via a cheap 4.4mm cable I bought on AliExpress.

    What is he saying about M17?

    I listened to M17 at my local Fiio dealer a few days ago and absolutely loved it. Looked into getting the new Sony WM1AM2 DAP but I'd be waiting a couple of months for delivery after payment. Plus, there's no way for me to listen to one. Using Sony's MDR-Z1R and IER-Z1R, plus a few other mid-fi...

    So, do I pick up a Fiio M17 next week form my local dealer or should I pay for WM1AM2 and wait two months for it? Choices...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    My dear, you have a router problem, not a Streamer problem. Fix your network by getting a proper, modern router. My unit runs for months on end without any issues at all.

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    I use wi-fi since wired LAN is not an option for me. Pretty happy with sound quality streaming on the Zen from a ROCK wired straight to my router. The connection is rock solid (pun intended ;) on 2.4GHz / 72 Mbps, even when streaming DSD256. I can run 5GHz / 400Mbps easily but I read somewhere...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    In Roon mode with the new firmware the Stream only works on coax output, hence the limitations in regards to PCM and resolution. I can't find a way to maintain USB output when switching to Roon mode. Using it in AIO mode for now, works just fine.

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    The Bridge is gone since updating to the latest iFi firmware. Why are you running Roon Version 1.7 when there have been several iterations of 1.8 already? Updating Roon might solve your problem.

    I really need streaming, otherwise this is an amazing deal for sure. Almost half the price of the new version and available right now.

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    Don't know what's with Sony and Australia, but I'm not complaining. Got the IER-Z1R and the MDR-Z1R at A$1,499 each when they were on sale. Wish I could wait long enough for a 1A bargain, haha! Not a chance.

    Seems like the DAPs are back on Sony's website. Shipping on 26 April means a 10 weeks wait though...

    It is still there but can't order it anymore. Have to wait now, like everybody else :D

    Removing/deactivating unwanted Google apps and services is not difficult at all. Only dyed in the wool rotten fruit fans are freaking out about it. No need to worry.

    Looks like there's a month wait if I preorder now. Guess I'll just wait then, wait a few months for the bugs to be ironed out 😊

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    Very fast charging means shorter battery life. Might not be an issue for a phone that you replace every 1-2 years but for a device like Mojo 2 that should last you much longer, that's a bummer. I bet that most folks complaining about not being able to charge via the type-C port would be whining...

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    You didn't think this through I guess. The micro USB you will only use for charging. For data you can use either the data micro or type C USB port. I doubt the charging micro usb port will ever fail if you treat your unit half decently. As for the data port, failures tend to occur due to mobile...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    I don't think that's right. In Roon I can stream to both USB and coax simultaneously and then play on either inputs on my DAC. No way for me to check as I don't have two DACs though but going back and forth USB/coax on my unit plays just fine and different songs, too.

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    What problems though? Tidal? I had issues with the damn thing on my phone, with the app failing to progress to the next song, for ages. So happy I'm not using it anymore. As for the frequent betas, what would you rather have, no updates? Since when is frequent support a bad thing? By the way...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Just stop using Tidal and get a proper high quality streaming service subscription. My Stream is absolutely flawless with Qobuz and local files. Spotify works but then I'm not wasting listening time with low quality files, especially now that Neil Young is gone from the platform...
