    FiiO 2019 Last Launch Event to Be Held on December 28, 14:00 Beijing time(UTC+8)

    I arrived at this thread excited about a new flagship. DSD64 “upsampling” in a 2020 flagship is not remotely close to what is capable. I don’t understand why you make the same powerful PC post anytime someone mentions this.

    FiiO 2019 Last Launch Event to Be Held on December 28, 14:00 Beijing time(UTC+8)

    I was trying to gracefully bow out of the conversation with you. You do not have anything informed (i.e. you have no first hand information) to add to the initial question. Instead, you are talking about “powerful PCs” with unoptimized processors. You, seemingly, are missing the point that, for...

    iFi audio Pro iDSD (Official) - NEW Firmware - MQA and more.

    You initially asked for: “I'm of the same view and would like to see a direct DSD to DSD upsampling being implemented in future firmware update.” ifi, rightfully, corrected you to clarify you are asking for something that doesn’t exist. Now, you are asking for: “the point is, iDSD Pro should...

    Well, don’t feel bad. I still don’t know how the light switch works much less how you cram anything into a dap, so you are in good company.

    “...a lot of noises and don’t exactly care about sound quality...” Respectfully, you are commenting about gear or features you haven’t heard, and from your comments sound as if you didn’t know existed until I mentioned it. If you are familiar with the ifi idsd pro and it’s upsampling hardware...

    iFi audio Pro iDSD (Official) - NEW Firmware - MQA and more.

    Why? Have you noted some deficiency in sound? It’s somewhat like complaining you’d like to see better 3D graphics performance in a future update; I say somewhat, as 3D graphics rendering is an actual, real thing. Are there any prosumer or pro equipment that does this? Ifi has created a true...

    While I agree that up conversion can be difficult, an unoptimized ipad can easily do DSD128 via third party software (or even higher). Likewise the ifi idsd can upsample anything to DSD1024 via hardware/software optimization. While quite small at around 9”x8” the idsd isn’t portable (though...

    FiiO 2019 Last Launch Event to Be Held on December 28, 14:00 Beijing time(UTC+8)

    Am I reading this right that the “all to dsd 2nd gen” converts to dsd 512 (or the far, far superior dsd 521)? On the m11 it converted to dsd64, correct? I’ve never heard the m11; did/does anyone find this better than the pcm output (at the file’s native resolution or upsampled)? Many thanks...

    This reads like a cancellation. I wonder if there was an issue with heat or battery life.

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    I love my vx and auditioned the hyla and 4 or 5 other totl iems before settling on the vx. While not perfect, I do not disagree with reviewers who have commented that the hyla may have the (or nearly the) best bass, especially sub bass and slam, that is available in an iem at just about any price.

    uhhh...no I use mine the way intended...an ap80 Velcro’d on to a Hugo 2 In my pocket. I don’t know why I would want a large and heavy dap when working out when I can have an even larger dac that weighs more.

    I have both, and it does better than any dap 1/20th the price of the iems It drives has a right to. That being said, you might want to check out the ap80. I thought the sound an improvement, and the small increase in screen size makes for a huge improvement in ease of use. Not to mention the...
