    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    I'll chime in to say that my R6 has no issues with Wi-Fi either. iConnects to whatever network I throw at it and stays connected (I use it every day, all day at work). No problems streaming on either Spotify or Deezer.

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Just as an added data point I, too, am listening with wired headphones and I never see any reported bitrate other than 44.1 in the title bar when playing content in the Amazon app. As for the UAT format comment, that leads me to a tangential, total newb question: Is there some sort of manual...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Yeah. I noticed the same thing. I don't know if it's because Amazon isn't actually sending a 96kHz file or if it's because I have some settings wrong on my R6 but I, too, noticed that all music playing in the Amazon app was reported at 44.1 kHz. I also noticed that my HW track skip buttons...

    I'm not positive but I believe that the firmware being referenced in the quote above is for devices running an older Android version. If your R6 is running Oreo (Android 8) then 1.12GBeta is still the latest. If I'm wrong, I hope someone will correct me.

    OK. I've searched through this thread to my limited abilities but I'll be damned if I can figure out the answer to this question so I'm just going to ask it: Can the R6 play MQA files through its native music player? I know that you can get MQA files through Tidal and play them with the Tidal...

    Glad to hear that you got things sorted out. Interestingly, reading about your swelling battery prompted me to take a look at my own X5III and, sure enough, the back plate is showing signs of bulging like my battery is in the early stages of swelling. Sadly, I don't have any pentalobe...

    The dev responded back to me and let me know that track skipping via the hard buttons should be working just fine. Even though I was running 4.2.5, it was not working for me so on a whim, I completely uninstalled UAPP Pro and reinstalled it. Now my skip buttons are working fine. I'm thinking...

    Thanks for the feedback jokobuba. You may now rest easy knowing that you are NOT the only one with this problem. I have also written to the devs. We'll see what they have to say.

    Hmmmm. Odd. I'm also running 4.2.3 but my track skip buttons don't work in UAPP (but they work in all other apps). I'll reach out to the app authors. Thanks for the feedback, WitzyZed

    I decided to give the upgraded UAPP player a try now that it supports the X5III fully. I really like the integration with Google Play Music, Tidal, et. al. But for the life of me, I can't figure out what setting to tweak to get UAPP to respond to the Track+/Track- buttons on the X5III. Does...

    I have been using my X5III every day at work and home -- on it's own; docked in a K5; or paired with an A5 amp -- with wired and wireless headphones since I received it in mid-March. I have had a (mostly) trouble free experience in all that time. My library (of mostly .flac files) plays...

    I've only been using 1.1.8 for a half hour or so but so far things seem fine. However, I've noticed that with this version of the firmware, the VU meter doesn't animate at all. Not a big deal for me but I figured I'd mention it.

    Sorry to hear that your experiences with the X5III have been so poor. I truly hope that you find a player that suits your needs and works well. As for me, I use my X5III every day (usually docked in a K5) for 8+ hrs a day. Most days I stay in Pure Music mode and listen to my collection (~1500...

    I have not specifically tested the F5s in a quiet room but I have tried turning the volume up to higher than my normal listening level and then putting the earbuds down on my desk and the audible sound is minimal. Of course, my ears are old so, as always, your mileage may vary.

    So far, so good. I updated the FW to the 1.1.7 release this morning (downloaded and sideloaded rather than OTA) and have been playing my full library on shuffle for the day with no issues -- but then I'm one of those people who have not had any issues with my X5III from day 1. I mostly like the...

    Hello @FiiO I have, indeed, emailed support. I received a reply yesterday from "Shadow" asking me to pop into a local headphone shop to try to confirm that the problem is with the cable and not the X5III. I'll be doing that today (yesterday was a holiday here in Canada) and will email my...

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I've reached out to Fiio's support to see if they can offer some help. Unfortunately, it's a long weekend here in Canada so I can't even head out to my local audiophile store to try to do some troubleshooting with some of their demo equipment. I certainly hope...

    Absolutely no need for apologies. If I was looking to purchase these cases, the more feedback and real life photos of them I could find, the better. It's funny how well trained we're becoming with respect to HawaiiBadBoy's need for cleanliness. Just after I posted my photos of my case, I...

    Agreed. I wish I could have purchased a black case in real leather but I'm still satisfied with the quality of the PU leather cases. I feel like the standard case, being thicker and more padded, will offer more protection to the X5III than the DAP & amp case. On the downside, I don't like that...

    I did, indeed, reach out to Tuffluv's customer service to express my concern with the design. I'm happy to report that they -- very quickly -- responded, acknowledging the issue. They stated that they are in the process of manufacturing corrected cases and will send me a replacement case when...

    I can confirm the same behaviour when using the IEMs with my Nexus 5X. Play/Pause and Vol - works but Vol + activates Google Assistant instead of increasing the volume. The controls work correctly on my X5III however. I'm still quite happy with these IEMs though. I really bought them for the...
