    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Yeap. In a hobby where personal subjectivity matters in the end, I'd say "you do you" to them. Well like I said earlier, I'll trust what the engineers say. If they recommend to do so, then it might be worth doing so.

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Well another way to know is if the engineers that made the DAP (like THE people that knows the ins and outs of the device) say you don't need to burn in, then you'll more than likely enough to not need any burn in.

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Only if the test is done on a much bigger sample size then sure. And even then, I have doubts that the changes found will be the make or break reason to get a DAP

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    There's also your "brain eq" at work. That and unless you're some kind of savant, your memory of how the initial impression will be fuzzy too. So believing in burn in is more self gratification imo. But personally, I have some believe in sound changes but it's only first right out of the box...

    On that note is it running stock android or is it on a custom skint or "OS"?

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    I wanted to say maybe it's because you Bluetooth streamed from your phone, which for some reason need the volume cranked up to hear anything. But then I remembered the new DAPs don't have Bluetooth dac function :( As a comparison, what's the volume setting on other DAP that you have tried? As a...

    Introducing the Noble Audio Falcon T.W.S. and the Tux 5....Oh, and Prestige Universals!

    I kinda agree on this. It's not bad per se but IMHO, I don't want someone else's signature on my thousand dollars iem I suggest moving it somewhere less visible. I feel like subtle Easter egg or detailing is much more appreciated and a unique point for a device. But that's just my opinion of course

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    I think Sony didn't make Android DAP after the ZX2 because android was really not good. But now Android is pretty good and the market is trending towards streaming. And as evidence as with other DAP makers, Sony wants to join in the party and making a comeback with the A100 and ZX500. I'm sure...

    Shozy IEM impression/appreciation thread (in particular Pola owners)

    Tried the BG last time with my A55. It actually sounded a it on the dark side which I think is due to the Sony DAP. I should have tried with my M2x but I only had one microsd and scanning songs on both DAP isn't exactly fast on the 256gb card, but I digress. But one discovery that I found...

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    On the latest firmware, wish Tidal can actually preload a whole song. Being in the go where some areas the connection will cut out, at the very least I get to listen to the song until the end before getting cut off instead of the middle of the song. At least it connects back fast. Also will...

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    I'm curious. Was there any reason why Tidal couldn't be used offline for the M2x? Or will it be added in future updates?

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    I just got my unit yesterday from Jaben SG. But unfortunately the screen got an issue where the pixel lines went up and died suddenly. Not sure what is the reason since it's like only been a day I got it. So now I need to send it back to Jaben for an exchange. In the short time I have it with...

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    That's too bad. Was hoping to be able to stream from the player instead of Bluetooth from phone. Any chance spotify will be implemented in the future? Can you try checking if it being as an external DAC and Bluetooth receiver, does it suffer from any latency issues?

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    Basic question : This supports Spotify right? Lack of info indicates no, but since it has Tidal support, it should be able to use spotify right?

    Shanling M2x - TIDAL || Wi-Fi || Both-way LDAC BT & BT Transmitter || Advanced USB transport || FW 2.7

    Color me intrigued. Balanced DAP for around $200-$250 with high end DAC. Too bad it's using 2.5mm instead of 4.4mm. Really need to move on to 4.4mm. Battery life seems short though. Power out is almost similar. 180mW VS 212mW. Don't see what's the actual benefit going balanced on this tbh...

    Shozy & Neo BG Impressions Thread

    They may just have gotten from the same OEM, which is not uncommon, especially for Chinese brands. Just because they look the same and even have the same parts doesn't necessarily mean they sound the exact same. They may have been tuned differently by the 2 companies. Now unless someone gets...

    How does the Pola sounds from something like the WM1A? Also how does the Pola sound from a less powerful source?

    Shozy IEM impression/appreciation thread (in particular Pola owners)

    Saw his graph and I'm quite concern about the highs on the Pola. The rest looks good for me, fr wise. Going ro need to listen myself to know if it's actually good or not though. Did he ever mention what he uses to power the Pola? I remember Shozy recommends something that's powerful to power them

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

      oh no. The negativity is from me and me alone lol. Anyway, If the cores are not that many, I could deal with it. I'd need to find a replacement tip  (gonna need to check if it's interchangeable anyway). Well thanks for the tip.

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

      Don't think I have a fine enough soldering iron. I only have the same thing that you use to solder electronic components. Works OK for soldering bigger sized cables, but for this small, don't think it'll cut it. How many cores does the Linum uses? Going to have to test every cores to find...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Alright having a bad day today. Just found out that my beloved linum cable has connection issue on the 3.5mm connector side, rendering the left channel inoperable. Considering how thin this cable is, I'm going to assume soldering it back will be hell. Anybody done repairs on this? Any tips or guide?

      Yeah gonna do that soon. As soon as google gives me the keys to my account again, whenever that is.   Free with ads though. Not sure implemented yet, but the hint is already there.

      Well I'm still using my M8 and it's pretty smooth. of course it'll stutter sometimes, but not bad actually.   Well my fault for the backup codes really. Didn't back that one up cause doesn't seem safe for me to just copy adn paste it in a file. But now I have LastPass, I'll save it...

      Well importing can be a major pain when requesting for RMA, considering this is LG with their problematic bootloop problem (not sure if that problem exist on the V10 though).    Very true. Can't wait for someone to give a review of "6 months after" using the phone.   Friggin bad day...

      It... It's not like I came here because of you guys! I just so happen an interesting topic to reply to! B... Baka!   Unfortunately V10 is still around $350~$400. But considering it's more of a premium line of phone, I'm not that surprised. But then the HTC 10 is now around $550 of which was...
