    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I went back several pages only. Maybe my answer could be answered if I went further. But dont have the time. So I'll ask with the hope a reader knows the answer already... What is the number of latest backer or preorderer that has shipped? Personally I'm disgusted given how behind they are...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    Drop may sell new items at attractive prices to promote them (which is how I bought my Opus #1) -or- may sell items at end-of-life, sometimes rebranded as a Drop private labelled item, to breath some new life into them. Seems the latter here?

    E1DA DACs Discussion Thread (PDV2, 9038S, 9038D, 9038X, HiFiToy, HPToy)

    How well do you hear? I have affected/damaged hearing from loud music, speakers & headphones. The much more powerful PowerDAC V2 is just barely loud enough for me with the Ether Flow C. Not sure how they compare efficiency wise. Maybe another knows. I know tho the 9038s wouldn't be loud...

    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Ah, good reference. Thought everything was 7270. 7872 is a major step up. As is the ram & rom and rest of the specs.

    Ya. Plus, I'd be amazed if anyone could tell the difference with program material. Yes, maybe can locate all speakers with distinct individual speakers playing one by one, in demo mode. But when a concert or movie is playing? Would be surprised.

    To the contrary. I now imagine this could happen with other vital components of the circuitry before they ship mine. lol & argh

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Thanx! As I read that I thought... I know how long it takes to write things like that. They could have shipped a half dozen to dozen A16s in that time. Also, I thought -all- the hardware was done and the slow rollout was due to final firmware programming and measured testing of each unit. I...

    Lol? There's already an upgrade? What, pray tell is that? HDMI 2.1? (Sorry for not reading the thread! I only PEAK here to see if there is a post of what backer number is shipping these days. Else I'll want to slit my wrists if I spend much more time in this thread. 'Cuz I'm hundreds past...

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    All a matter of how much playback time / charge capacity you want, form factor / size, number of usb outputs, max watts out, w/ bi-direction usb-c or just micro usb-b charge in. Favorites are Anker and nrgGo. The rest is based on the use case. (I have a 19600 mAh battery pack but it's so...

    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Anyone think the M6 has enough horsepower that it will get the new firmware update that includes the Play Store like the upper end M11 just got? FiiO wrote this about a year ago ... But as it just got the Play Store I have to assume that has changed. Could it be in the works for M6 too? It...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Say... are there any reps of Audio Evolution / eXtremeSD here; not sure which. Edit: @Davy Wentzler or other... There is this pretty nifty little Android based player, the FiiO M6, that could be bettered by the use of your UAPP it. However it does not run the Google Play Store. And my...

    Man, this blows. After trying several different versions of installing Google Account, Service Framework, Play Service, and Play, it's always the same. First two install. Once Play Service is installed, the Service Framework goes into a loop of stopping. Luckily one can either restart in...

    @FiiO I know I'm late to the game. But is ES File Manager still the one you want customers to use? Who is the author in the app store? Because.. There are at least four apps named "ES file manager / explorer" in the app store presently. By different authors. I'd like to know if I did...

    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Yup. I backed up my uapp apk and copied it over. And saw that error not long ago myself tonight. I'm working on that right now. But as its almost 2:30am, will put it aside until tomorrow. (What web browser runs on the M6? I keep getting "not compatible" errors with all i try to install.)...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    Also a early Opus #1 adopter that hasn't used his in years. My latest love is the E1DA PowerDAC V2. So my current interest are DAPs that do USB Audio Out up to 192kHz + 24-bit. (Want a dedicated USB source As I find teTher to my Note 8 to be a pita) Would love live love to be able to take...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Hmm. A bit larger than I hoped, as a source streamer only for a E1DA PDV2. But... Seems it may be able to output USB Audio in HD natively, and supports apk installs. Love that it whitelisted Roon. Would like to use UAPP but, if I dont have to.... hmm. Thanx!

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Are there any -compact- DAPs -- important: like a Fiio M5, NOT full sized like a X7 or anything akin to that -- that are Android based and that ... 1. accept 3rd party software installations, thus of UAPP 2. its custom USB will work and bypass the Android driver 3. will output up to 192kHz &...

    Woah. Keep us apprised; simply for the sake of curiosity. I dont know NYC hotels to be kind to walk-ins. But I own an apartment so dont stay in them. My friends and mother in-law do tho. And usually book way in advanced to get the good prices.

    Don't get me started. My "favorite songs" play list in Roon is presently 163 songs long. Lol Some of my "must listen to" songs however when evaluating gear that I'd love to find included on your playlist are: --- Title: Horizontal Blue Artist: David Piltch, Aaron Davis Album: Take One Year...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Looking for honest 1st hand bases experience here.... My question in short is: I don't see a trial version of UAPP in the google app store. Should I pay $8 for UAPP if I had a negative experience with streaming music from my Note 8 using the Neutron player using it's high rez USB driver? Will...

    CanJam NYC 2020 (February 15-16, 2020)

    Is the volume of the preview video unusually low for anyone else? Or just me? I have everything maxed on my tablet but my affected hearing is really having difficulty hearing.

    No prob. Just kidding around, as I immediately started thinking ... "oh no, should I post a reminder? Imagine if everyone starts to?".. hehe ;) I get why you did; as it's a special order.
