    Questyle CMA Twelve

    Are you sure it's the M12 and not the cheaper one? That one is still great for the money but not as textured or full as the CMA12. I suspect you have the dreaded interface situation where you've voiced something to match something else (warm for lean etc) and have now plugged something more...

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    If you us UAPP app with the right post filter and unpsample on the Hiby, it has the same sort of solidity as QP1r and that most others lack but with a more refined top end. QP1r is a PRAT machine but I prefer the new Hiby R6 overall when used that way. A bit Tweaky Geeky to get there but it's...

    Probably would help to check the battery level when it's on. What Joe is asking is, when it's plugged in and on, if it immediately goes black when unplugged?

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    I have one and it's great but that was an invalid compare. Has to be the same source and I'll take a properly ripped CD over anything streamed any day, especially MQA.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:That said, your results are what I'd expect anyway. QP1r was a giantkiller when available and still...

    More likely the socket itself than blown up.

    Double Helix Cables Thread

    Just thought I'd add a link to there FAQ page. I would never have bought a gold or silver alloy cable from anyone and he goes into length here to explain why he won't offer them. Nice to see someone speaking the truth as opposed to marketing and finding ways to charge more...

    I'd keep them smaller to remain compatible with other software.

    Astell & Kern - Zero Customer service. Beware

    Beats me but it's possible that Tidal/Andriod have made it difficult to support without the google play store. Try sideloading and see what happens.

    Astell & Kern - Zero Customer service. Beware

    No idea if this is a fix but https://www.moon-audio.com/blog/astellkern-support-open-app-services Also, if they support Qobuz, just switch. It's clearly better.

    Personally not a Roon fan. Don't like how it handles untagged files. Also don't like that it effectively becomes your server but I absolutely understand it's popularity.

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    Thanks Joe. I still like FAT32 because it's so universal across platforms and eras while no detriment in use under 2TB but it's nice to know. One of the things I like about this player is how modern it is in terms of speed, wireless, software etc. Was a good time to invest in a more functional...

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    Where did you get it? Like they said, lots of fakes. I'd try formatting it to FAT32 outside the R6 and see if it then gets recognized. FAT 32 limit is also 2TB. Here's a card tester. https://www.maketecheasier.com/check-sd-card-speed-capacity/ Miniaide makes decent fat32 formatter...

    Questyle CMA Twelve

    I have a lot of experience with expensive DACs and have generally been a fan of ladder DACs in the past, which this is not but I've heard the CMA 12 in a few familiar setups and compares now and prefer it or at least like it as much as anything I've heard. That including all the Chord DACs, the...

    So UAPP update is getting closer. Upsample is still not functioning but it says buffering instead of not finding DAC.

    Sonys are effectively class D output. Not for me.

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    On another note. I'm currently using uapp player with 'min phase slow roll' filter with Comply tips on S8 and 4 core silver litz cable. Sounds great. So much of this is finding a good voicing. The reason that I instantly knew I'd like the Hiby is because it's very informative without any major...

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    Not at all the point and didn't read because I don't need to. I hear a qualitative difference up to 24/192 actual file sizes and generally don't care for upsampling in general but there's a reason DACs tend to run at those higher frequencies. I just happened to prefer the character of UAPP...

    OK, so I contacted Hiby and they assured me that the R6 can play native 768 files. Anybody have one? I'd be happy to test.

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    So I've had some back and forth with Davey from UAPP about why the integer upsample stopped working on UAPP with the R6. In the last update they revised the Hiby version to upsample to as high as 768 khz (was 384khz before that) since Hiby claims native playback of 768khz files. Apparently the...

    MQA has exactly as many problems as I originally thought. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Too many and they directly affect what's heard.

    HiBy R6 2020 User Impressions

    So I wiped and rebuilt my Hiby from scratch and did a fresh UAPP install to try and eliminate user error. It will not play in upsample mode where it did before. Does play Hires at native rates. Fortunately, Slow Roll Min Phase with Bit Perfect still sounds pretty great. I just can't figure out...

    Could easily be user error with all those options, he's on the case. :relaxed: I could always do a Hiby factory reset so settings, paths etc are forgotten and reinstall but would rather see what's up if possible. I only have a browser and UAPP installed so not a big deal.
