    FiiO M15 Audio Player | Dual AK4499EQ | 7490 mAh Battery | 64 GB ROM | $1299.99

    I'll eventually get an a90/d90 setup for my aryas but the d90 will take longer so I thought of using my m15 as a dac in the meanwhile :)

    If my M15 is connected to my pc via USB cable (it'll be on USB DAC mode) will that cause the ground loop as well? There is a "no charging" option that essentially lets it run from its own internal battery, would that help at all? Am quite the noob when it comes to this 🥳

    And if I use the 4.4 output into the dual xlr and use the 4.4 on the A90 - the signals should be fully balanced right? Thanks for answering btw!

    Quick question - I am about to purchase a Topping A90 - is it possible to hook up my M15 to my PC via USB => USB DAC mode => 4.4mm to dual XLR cable from the Fiio to the A90 => balanced 4.4 cable to my Aryas. Does that setup work, ergo, can I use my M15 as a dac only and have it run through the...

    HIFIMAN Arya - Impressions Thread

    Have been looking at the ifi NEO iDSD - Output Balanced >6.4V/68.6 mW (@ 600Ω) >5.77V/1040 mW (@ 32Ω) Do you guys think that should drive the Arya fully? I'm not at all an expert in this area - hope you guys can shed some light on this!

    Tidal app x8 seems to work for me! I have loudness normalisation off.

    I've tried the 1990 eq as well - I love that one on classical symphonies with a lot of high trebles and choirs. I'll be using yours for jazz, the bass is more textured indeed. Neutral I still love them as well, I'll probably be switching now and then 😁

    Am currently trying out those settings on Roon - man....that crap sounds good! It does indeed become more dynamic and the soundstage widens a TAD but not too much, but enough to hear more space between the orchestra and the pianist in...

    Scanning is indeed much faster with the new fiio app - and I do like unlimited file size for album art - good improvement!

    Am planning on the d90/a90 combo for the Arya, when at the office or on holiday I use the Fiio M15 - looking forward to how the Topping combination will sound

    Did you end up using balanced cables for the Arya? What did you think?

    Quick questions guys and gals: I have a Fiio M15 - and I have a balanced 4.4 cable for my Arya - is that Fiio powerful enough to drive the headphones you think? I'm getting very good volume - is that the thing to go for so to say?

    Pretty soon my Hifiman Arya is arriving with a balanced cable so I can finally also hear the balanced output of this device. So far my listening experience with my dt1990s has been amazing but really looking forward to those Aryas!

    Clear - not a very efficient way of showing what's what, no wonder it causes confusion 😆 thanks for explaining it guys!

    @CANiSLAYu understood - thanks! Does that mean that if I see MQA48k at the top it is -not- unfolding, or no unfolding is possible, or that something else is wrong, or none of those things :P

    Hey guys, Question: When I play the album S&M2 (random album, not particular to the question, this happens with more albums) from Tidal via UAPP I see the following (see picture as well) at the top of my screen it says MQA48k then below it says: Direct: 384KHz - MQA Flac: 48khz 24bit...

    No updates about tidal running full mqa on this yet huh? UAPP does it for me but I thoroughly hate the UI of it. Should we write to Jay-Z?

    Hey guys, question, would it be possible to hook up my M15 to my phone via a usb-c to usb-c cable and use it in the USB DAC mode?

    So far so good with this case, ordered a small golden protector for the volume dial. Fun addition: receiving a small package that only reads: KNOB PROTECTOR 😂
