    Comment by 'BRCMRGN' in item 'iBasso DC01 Hi-Res Balanced DAC cable adapter'

    On Windows 10, my DC01 only works with 16/44.1, 24/44.1 and 16/88.2. On my Note8, it works with Neutron but not with Tidal.

    Astell & Kern KANN - DAP with Massive Storage & Battery

    I have used guiformat.exe for years. The only issue that I've ever had (I have more than 20 DAPs) with SD cards is with the Kann. I had one 400GB card that would never stop scanning. I removed all non-music from the card (pdf album booklets and one video) with no change. I finally made a...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    I'm using the same version and it multitasks very poorly. If I do a search while downloading to offline, Tidal usually crashes before I complete typing the search string. There are other combinations of tasks that also cause it to crash. I'm now doing most of my Tidal offline from an Activo...

    Astell & Kern AKR02 SCAM

    I tried several times to get a replacement from A&K, with no luck, so I tried the Q-Jays cable and it does work. Unfortunately, it looks like it's out of stock on the Jays website. I really like the AKR02, but I can't recommend it at $1,400.

    Mine finally arrived. Never did get a tracking number. DHL called promising to deliver Friday. They finally showed up Monday at 5PM (in a Hertz rent-a-truck). Very shaky fulfillment process.

    If you Could Listen to 1-IEM Forever....

    Not the best at any one thing, but it sounds very good with almost everything. I like the small size (you can sleep with it). It's a very good all-purpose IEM.

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon 2.0 - Owners Impressions

    I have a channel imbalance (almost no output on left side) on my SE output. I sent it in for repair and they couldn't find a problem. I only turn it on once or twice a week (it's in my office) and the problem may only show up when the amp is cold. I My left channel on SE seems dead when the...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I have the same setup. I got a Moon Audio Black Dragon adapter cable - 2x3.5mm female to 4.4mm male. Not cheap, but their cable are high quality and they can make anything.

    Adventures in Balanced Cables for IEMs

    I do still user the W4 and W4R. I have several balanced cables that I use on the W4R, but the gains on the W4R are nowhere near as much as on some other IEMs. Harder to drive IEMS are usually better on balanced and some players (like Pono) are much better on balanced output. Knowing what I...

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    I used mine originally just for Tidal. I use it to try new stuff, but I usually don't stream, I download locally (128GB internal is nice for that). I buy a lot less since I started using Tidal. Since the 400GB cards came out, I can put my whole 16/44 and HIDEF FLAC library on the ZX2, as...

    HiFiMAN HM650 Portable Music Player Impressions Thread

    I have the same problem on my HM-650. I updated the firmware to 2.004 and changed my SD card from EXT4 to FAT32, but whenever I restart the unit, it only see the directories on the SD card -- no files.

    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    My ZX2 won't stay in a power off state. I power it of and within 24 hours it starts itself back up. Is this normal? Since I don't use it every day, it's really annoying. I have to leave it plugged in or the battery will be dead, if I don't use it for a week. I have Wifi and NFC off.

    FiiO X7 | DXD | DSD | 384K/64B | ESS9018+ Android | WiFi | Bluetooth | 4 AMP modules | Balanced Out |

    My X7 is running FW 3.3 with a Sandisk 200GB card, Dignis leather case and AM3 Amp. I use it primarily for Tidal offline. Initially, it was awful - noisy, skipping and pausing. Turning off WiFi helped a little. Then I removed all 3rd party apps that use audio - Audible & Amazon Music- and...

    Lotoo PAW 5000: Impressions Thread

    After Windows 10 Creators Edition completely hosed my USB audio, I'm using the PAW 5000 SPDIF --> Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC --> Cavalli Liquid Carbon. The PAW 5000 works fine as a transport.

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    Got mine yesterday.  I'm using the included silicone tips.  I have the entire Noble old-style-shell line - Savant, N3, N4, N5, N6 & Kaiser and the X is the first for me with the new shells.  I could never user the included tips with the old shells, but with the new shell, they work fine.  I get...

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    Dug out my EX1000 tonight. From the Aune M1S with a silver balanced cable, they are amazing.  I had forgotten how good they are.

    Opinions Wanted: Favorite cables for CIEMS

    I have been happy with my gaggle of Linum Bax cables. I also have quite a few Moon Audio Silver Dragon and Black Dragon cables and adapters that are quite good. My prettiest cable is a Whiplash 8 conductor Silver with 1% gold. It is big, bulky and gorgeous. Fortunately it also sounds great...

    The Pono Player Impressions Thread

    This happened to me on both of my Pono players (one of which was almost never used).  If you are out of warranty, get used to the reduced capacity or throw it away and buy a new one (on sale). The price they want to repair isn't very good compared to some of the discount prices on new ones.
