    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    This!!! Would not have even considered the M0 if it weren't for the form factor as I already have a V30 phone. The M0 simply fits a use case (working out/running/hiking/etc.) better than any other DAP I've seen. Totally agree, that's why I just ordered the M0 (should arrive tomorrow). Just...

    Great review. I was kinda on the fence about buying the M0 and I think you just convinced me to pull the trigger!

    Aune B1 Impressions thread

    @HBB I see some of your pics with the UM ME.1’s. I was wondering what you thought of that pairing. I just won a pair from a Musicteck giveaway and am loving them. I’m running them with my Cayin N3 currently. I have a C5 amp that I usually love but it’s seems to not really add anything with the...

    I won the Unique Melody ME.1's from the Musicteck giveaway

    Hello All- I was lucky enough to win the ME.1’s from the recent Musicteck giveaway. Besides thanking Musicteck for the arranging the giveaway itself, I also wanted to thank everyone involved this online community. Without everyone’s interest, participation, and support of the Sponsors and...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    I really think it depends on preference. The C5 will give you a huge bass boost but I think the sound is a lot cleaner without. I use my C5 if I'm listening to something heavier and without it otherwise.

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    I have the C5 and have found when I want a little bassier, fun sound, it sounds great connected to the N3. I should say that without the bass boost on the N3 sounds better alone.

    Looking for my first set of headphones

    I have a pair of Yamaha Pro 500's. They sound awesome and are very easy to power (my phone powers them just fine), isolation is good too. I kinda hate the way they look, obviously my personal opinion. It's true that they are not the most comfortable but they are not too bad either. A lot of...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    Thank you guys, this is awesome. I like it all, the animation at start up, the minor grammatical stuff, and the nipple wallpaper is great! The N3 is the first DAP I have ever owned outside of Apple products and it just keeps getting better and better. I've said it before but it really is the...

    Yamaha HPH-Pro 500 Review

    I just picked up some used Pro 500s from another head-fi member about two weeks ago and feel the need to comment here. They sound powerful no matter what source I use but when hooked up to my Violectric DAC and amp, they really get kicked up another level. The first week or so I was impressed...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    Andy- I may be in the minority here but I like the option to use the EQ while connected to an outboard DAC. Volume, I couldn't care less about though. Also, I think it's strange that you can't reliably reproduce the EQ bug, it happens to me literally every time I mess around with the sliders...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    So I finally got the Cayin branded USB-C to coax cable from MusicTeck yesterday. It's a very nice cable, exponentially better than the other cable Andrew was selling before these came in. Anyone looking for it should not hesitate to call MusicTeck.   When comparing the coax vs the USB when...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    I have a usb and no coax but still have the same issue when I run it to my Lake People DAC. It is kinda nice to be able to use the EQ but I would rather know it's a pure digital signal.

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    I also wanted to pass along the news that MusicTeck finally got the delivery of the legit, Cayin-branded USB to coax cables today and I just ordered one from them to just to see if it makes any difference using the coax input of my Lake People DAC rather than the USB input.   Even with 24 bit...

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    OK, so I feel like an idiot asking this question but I really can't figure it out.   How do you set the replay gain volume? Not talking about how to choose between song and album, I see that. What I mean is when you want to actually set the volume for an album, let's say, what do you do?

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    Why would anyone not use orange theme B? It goes quite well with either black or cyan.  My N3 is truly complete now!

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    This is your best option but that particular cable arrived with a short with my order. Musicteck is supposed to get cayin branded cables next week that should be better quality. I'm​ going to wait till that one comes in myself.

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

        I wasn't able to copy my playlists over either so I started to create them on the N3 itself. And I feel your pain, so many "the" bands in my library....

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    I don't have these particular tracks (never been a big rush fan) but I do listen to a lot of heavy, sabbath-y kind of stuff that has a lot of percussion and have not experienced it either. Mainly alac format if that helps.

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    Let's say I purchased a Cyan cover from MusicTeck for my black one. Would some "color" to the sound signature?
