    Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics!

    Daily wear is now the Omega FOIS, highly underrated imo. Sold my old Speedy mashed the GS, as lovely as it was.

    Got the PTP Audio solid 9 running again, using the Phoenix speed controller, vinyl is a pita but worth it.

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Can someone speak with authority as to the output stage? Is there any difference in XLR vs. SE?    Discrete output?

    Can it do M3U standard yet?   There was a clunky workaround awhile back I could never get working.   Assuming this was fixed given I am on 1.2.1 firmware.

    Got it. Newest firm. Correct settings in JRMC. DSD512 sounding good.

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

        Whew, it's back after re-install and reboot of driver. I still think I have the wrong firmware. Need to double-check, and figure if it is safe to move on to the new one directly.

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    ****, I think I never noticed that the last firmware Strawberry was not for iDSD, I didn't see nano iDSD (wasn't aware there was there product). It was working fine afterwards for weeks, but now solid yellow light and device not detected in Windows any longer (by USB panel). That explains my...

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    My Vega DAC has SPDIF that accepts only native DSD, not DoP DSD over USB, or native DSD over USB.   I thought max was DSD256 over DoP...mention by iFi in this regard upthread confused me. I think I used to understand this more, likely I have forgotten one can do DSD over USB in native with...

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    I used my iDSD in Direct while waiting for my Vega DAC to return. Sounded great and DSD256 with no hiccups using JRMC.

    iFi iPurifier 2 - Reviews, Impressions and Discussion Thread

    You can get that packet noise and ground loop embedded in the data line, not just 5v, so essentially these fancy tweaks are moot at times unless you go whole hog. iFi's larger USB is galvanically isolated but the Purifer isn't I assume.   That's why I went with the Adnaco. I could still here...

    Apparently, my Vega is done, and I am being billed $200 USD.   When I purchased direct from Auralic, shipping and customs were included in the cost. Auralic also sent me a UPS label to return using their UPS account. Now I am being told the upgrade is free, but shipping/customs in $200-...

    iDSD micro Black Label. Tour details (page 147). Release info (page 153).

    Thanks, so 5.0 Vanilla does not enable DSD256 Dop?   I noticed that J. River for example does not offer any DoP setting for DSD512 over DoP.   DSD512 is only possible via ASIO?

     Yes, sorry I did not clarify that.   Hardware upgrade is needed on the older Vegas:   VEGA HW 1.2   The newer ones will get only a firmware upgrade believe.

    The older versions 1.2 hardware? I will have to check...can get a free update. Not sure if that offer still stands, but Auralic helped me ship out of my country (typically electronics can't be mailed out) but now I have two wait 2 months, or so I was just told.   I will PM you direct POC now.

    I'd also like to see the current playing now Metadata be linkable to drill down to that field, much like JREMOTE for JRMC. Just feels a bit odd in this day and age we can't import standard M3U playlists without editing them and while playing music you can't click the Artist name and just get a...

    Yuk, never seen that one. Have you tried using the remote vs. the button on the unit? I assume you have tried. If your version is an older Vega, might be a good time to send it for the DSD256 update although you will be without your unit for 2 months.

    This doesn't make sense it me.   Edits made directly to the DX80 created Playlist1, are not showing up on the device. But the playlist has been edited and those changes are reflected when the file is opened on Windows with Notepad++.   I re-scanned both SD cards as well.   I also have a...

    Thanks, I have made the exact changes needed and copied into the existing Playlist1 to test. I saved in UTF-8 DOS/Windows format which was the same the Notepad++ opened it in.   I have also taken the same data and plugged it into my original named playlist to test if I can import it.

    If I leave the DX80 as a DAC, the unit just shuts down after a while and goes into Charging mode. I was listening to Stan Getx while I made dinner, and noticed it had stopped. Keeps doing it but I'm not sure if there is a pattern to the duration. I get at least 10-15 min. Great, was hoping...
