    Oh, neat. Thanks. Maybe I'll try swapping the Evo and Extreme that I have. Need to find somewhere to temporarilly stuff 150GB of files to do that...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    I just did one today thinking that could help. As far as I can see it didn't help in particular, though it added the global plugins. The whole stuttering thing with files on the memory card seems to be... really temperamental. It sometimes will do it nonstop and other times it'll be fine for a...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    I bought it second hand, so I can't return it. Mine is a SanDisk Extreme, but I've just tested in my main phone and there seems to be absolutely nothing wrong with it. A Chkdsk did find some errors but I ran extended tests and scans via DataLifeguardTools and HDTune, even benchmarked the card, I...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Mine seems to have a squidgy volume up button. It's still working but it's not confidence inspiring. I'm also having lots of glitches with mine particularly with the memory card. It sometimes has difficulty reading from the memory card and mysteriously attempts to unmount/eject the memory card...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    Is that a screen protector on it? It's got a really obvious 'orange-peel' finish in that photo...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    I'm honestly not too sure... I hadn't enough time to really get a feel of the ZX500, but the initial impression was that my ZX1 had more treble sparkle and definition with a wider sound, placing the furthest sounds ... well, further away. Don't take my impression of the ZX500 sound too...

    Aye, his consistent presence here is one of the reasons I chose to go for a HiBy! Thanks for the clarification. Just gonna wait on the news on where to find those changelogs. ...Admittedly it's not important, I guess, but I really would like to see what's changed/added/fixed over the life of...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    That's interesting that the ZX-507 has a 2 hour charge time... 2 hours is about average for a ~2,000mAh cell with no fast charge tech I think. Does the ZX500 actually have any fast charge specified and I just missed it? And yes, most batteries getting around 500 full recharge cycles is the...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    Meant to post this here but absent mindedly put it in the R6 Pro thread instead - I'm looking for the firmware changelogs mainly; I'm about to get a preowned R6 aluminum... so I'd like to confirm a few things; 1. Can I have that guide on how to update the OS to 8.1 if it's still on 6.0? 2...

    NEW SONY NW-ZX500

    I had a brief hands-on with the ZX500, it's pretty decent sounding, but somehow I felt my ZX1 actually did better! And the ZX500's elongated format is nice and comfy to hold, but the tiny screen is an eye sore and difficult to use, it's too narrow. Song titles are truncated and such. While the...

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I'm about to get a preowned R6 aluminum... so I'd like to confirm a few things; 1. Can I have that guide on how to update the OS to 8.1 if it's still on 6.0? 2. Where can I see the firmware changelogs? 3. Has firmware improved Bluetooth stability or upgraded it to 4.2? I tested a R6 steel and it...

    Help with this RCA-TRS speaker setup...

    If it helps, I'm trying to hook up a Gigaworks T40-II here. I was pretty much expecting everything to function as, well, expected - the right channel works perfectly fine, but I can't figure out what is causing the left channel to also play on the right channel. So what's happening exactly is...

    Help with this RCA-TRS speaker setup...

    I'm back on Head-Fi for some help I need pretty quickly... I just went ahead and splurged on some powered 2.0 speakers to replace the passive satellites on an Altec Lansing 2.1 system. The 2.0 speakers have a 3.5mm input, while the Altec Lansing is basically everything done by the subwoofer as...

    Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion)

    Yeah, my issue is similar to yours - the Walkman lasts a long time in standby or playback without active use of the screen, and in fact it was also affecting my ZX1, though to a lesser extent. But, since my ZX1 has somehow gotten stuck in a boot loop and the F806 stopped charging altogether, I...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    My ZX1 is stuck in a boot-loop, I can't even get it into recovery mode. It was perfectly fine yesterday.. I'm not sure what's caused it, but it seems it discharged overnight for no apparent reason as well. After plugging it in to power it's now just getting really hot while trying to start up...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    I'm having battery issues with my ZX1. The indicator doesn't seem to match with the actual battery level and it's shutting down due to critical battery before it reaches 0%.

    Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion)

    Is anyone else having battery issues with their F800 series? Mine is shutting down even when there's apparently 80% in the battery.

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    Sorry if this question has been raised before, but I haven't got the immediate time to read for a solution. Has anyone been able to get their ZX1 to consistently send track data and information over Bluetooth like album/artist/title? I can't get it to do that with SYNC2.

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    As can be seen in this picture the A3s, like Z5s, connect via the "top" of the driver housing. Though they are effectively symmetrical and can sort of be worn upside down, it's not entirely natural and to properly get them on right you might have to reverse the connectors - i.e. connect L to R...

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    Specification wise they're similar at face value but the construction materials are different. If I recall right I think someone here said the Z5 shells are made of magnesium alloy. I don't get the same impression from my A3. Also, the Z5 has an aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer driver as...

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    Rig update 2015 due to the old XBA-3 cable wearing out again. Still keep it simple. NWZ-ZX1 pushing sound to XBA-A3 via Poweramp. Nearly went for an ATH-IM04 though. But I think Sony's engineering decision of dedicated tweeter is what makes it for me. But if this cable doesn't last I'm jumping...

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    Quite enjoying the A3 still. Driving it out of the ZX1. I recall not liking the H3 when I tried it though. The Z5 on the other hand didn't seem worth the premium over the A3 for me. I'm fine with Sony's so-called hybrid tips (the default one mounted in the box anyway) and pretty much have been...

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    How is everyone's views on the A3 vs the Z5? I just got an A3 over an ATH-IM04 (Z5 is a bit too exclusive for me, pricewise) to replace my XBA-3 (which cable broke, again...) and I like it as I'm in tune with Sony's style of high-end sound (the A3 is pretty much a bassier sounding XBA-3 at the...

    Sony NWZ-ZX1 - 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    I don't think the ZX1 supports USB-host. I haven't found any WMPort to USB-female connector, anyway. This is true. I appreciate the ZX1 more, overall, though it might just be placebo from the fact it cost that much more. (I'm contradicting myself right) I find its sound more "effortless", but...
