    So I contacted Fiio regarding my issues and I was planning on mailing my device to Fiio for inspection/repair this afternoon. I removed my SD card and charged it on Friday as I thought I would mail it out then, but I didn't have the opportunity to make it to the post office. I turned my device...

    I don’t think I can really answer that. My only sources are the M9 and Walnut v2. I much prefer the M9 with the KP, but were talking about a $300 dap vs a $30 dap. I’m not in a position to say that the M9 works/sounds any better than any other dap in it’s price range. When I’m listening to...

    Agreed. These are without a doubt my favorite audio purchase ever. I’ve stopped looking at gear and have instead been enjoying the music!

    My device came with a coax dongle in the bottom of the box that I just found out about yesterday. Perhaps that’s what you’re looking for?

    I was posting here to see if anyone else was having a similar issue since my device was working fine before the firmware update. I know the drop could be a factor, but it worked flawlessly using both outputs for a month after I dropped it. If I’m the only one having this issue then it’s likely...

    Got a new balanced cable so I can at least listen to my M9, but I can only listen balanced. It still won’t output to a single ended cable.

    I contacted Fiio support, but it looks like they're on holiday. I did drop my device a few weeks ago, so I'm not sure if I'm screwed on the warranty. I didn't have problems with switching between a 3.5 and 2.5 until the new firmware update. I should have a new 2.5mm cable tomorrow.

    When I plug my headphones in via the 3.5mm the m9 will not play. I can hear a static sound when turned to 120/120. The M9 is still outputting to the 2.5mm output even though there is no plug in the 2.5 socket. Whatever circuitry that’s supposed to switch outputs based on what’s plugged in is...

    Is anyone else having a problem switching from balanced to single ended? I’m wondering if it’s perhaps a firmware issue.

    This is so frustrating. I cannot for the life of me get my device to output back to single ended. My assumption is that it is supposed to auto-detect the output, but it will not switch over. I've tried factory reset and hardware reboot and nothing is working.

    I accidentally bent my balanced plug, but now I have a problem with my M9 where it wont switch to single ended. My balanced plug bent in my pocket, it was not connected to the m9 when the damage happened. Is there a way to force my M9 to output to single ended?

    I just updated and tidal loaded for me. It took longer than usual but it did load.

    Pictures of Your *Budget-Fi* Portable Rig (< $200)

    I’m sitting right at $199 with this combo including the cost of the sd card. I prefer listening through the M9 as the walnut sounds thicker and more closed in by comparison, but still pretty amazing for the money.

    Yeah. It’s not that much of a problem, I just find myself having to charge the device often. It charges to full in 1.5 to 2 hours.

    That would explain it. When you hold the power down button it shows a screen that says "Power off Do you want to shut down?" I assumed I powering down. Edit: It's still rather fast battery drainage. The device is advertised as having 45 day deep sleep. My experience is showing a 4 to 5 day...

    Last night I charged my M9 to 100% battery then turned the device off and went to bed. This morning I turned it back on and it showed 94%. Does anyone else's battery drain when powered down? My device has done this from the beginning and I just figured it was normal, but now I'm not sure.

    I decided to listen to Grateful Dead's American Beauty album as it's well recorded and I'm very familiar with that album. I fired up the Tidal MQA version and immediately noticed that there was a dampened kick drum that I've never noticed before. It has a flabby sound like there's a blanket in...

    I think it’s just that the photos look matte. The description clearly describes a “highly reflective housing.” Also, my KPE are in the States. I’ll hopefully take delivery next week!
