    The way I deal with the wobbly wheel so I don't always end up rotating it:
    • Initiate the volume screen with one click
    • Touch the screen and drag up or down to control volume
    Or when I hook it up to an amplifier, I just go Line-Out mode.

    Yeah, I'll maybe just control the volume the way you suggest. Thanks!

    Are you sure that you cannot fully unscrew volume knob, add loctite and screw it back? This should solve your problem.

    Another (small) issue, don't know if it's just me (FW 1.0, NTFS):
    While playing a song and in the 'full screen mode' (image on the screen, name of the song, etc...), select the '...' (vertical) then 'View album': you can see the songs, scroll, select and play any in the played album, but no more images for the songs.

    It's definitely not that bad that it will fall off, I think!
    Maybe the wheel on mine is not as bad as others after all.
    Thanks anyway!

    This is also observed in the 1.01 beta that enables LDAC on AP80.

    On the one I got the volume knob does not seem to be lose in its attachment to the shaft. Rather the spring that returns it from the pushed in position is just weak. When I move the knob with one finger the edge that is in contact with my finger get depressed slightly giving the impression that the knob wobbles. If I use two fingers on the knob to turn it, this does not happen. I don't have a problem with it as everything works as it is supposed to. If there was a stronger spring holding the knob in the out position, I think it would go a long way towards reducing or eliminating this perceived problem.

    I'm glad that a lot of you have received your units. Unfortunately there are many that have not, myself being one of them, backer #77. I've gotten zero responses from this joke of a company. kenloveme has dropped off the face of the earth now it seems. And to top all of this off, Amazon has the players available for purchase, granted slightly more ($150) than what the Kickstarter campaign was but I could order from there and have it delivered before the unit I backed from kickstarter arrives.

    I've been a long time lurker here but never joined, I've followed the AP80 since I learned about it which was about when this thread was on page 2. The communication from Hidizs was good, and it seemed like they had learned from past Kickstarter campaigns. Unfortunately, they have not. If my unit ever arrives now, quite honestly I don't want it. I'm debating about starting the charge back on the cc, or just waiting until this unit arrive (if it ever does) and just selling it brand new and sealed.

    I'm happy for those of you whom received your players and are happy with them. It's just too bad that all of the Kickstarter pledges have not been taken care of. I've done other Kickstarters and most have went well, and all have had good communication with the exception of this one. For myself personally I will never touch/back anything from Hidizs but I will continue to follow here as I'm curious to see if kenloveme ever returns and to see how the longevity of the players turns out.

    I would have your bank do an immediate charge back. You have every right to recover your money. If the parcel arrives at a later date, consider it compensation for the disappointment caused solely and directly by Hidizs. The wonky wheel will be an ongoing problem for many. Updates will cease after the initial sales peak. In six months, we will see another Hidizs product announced. Rinse and repeat.

    Looks like the are now selling them in more colors through AliExpress. They have blue and purple as well as the stainless steel version for sale. I'm kinda annoyed that I just missed getting one in blue by a few hours because blue is my favorite color. I ordered one yesterday in red because I didn't think blue was coming out anytime soon:triportsad:

    It could come out in black laquer with gold trim for all I care--it's useless if DSD sounds like absolute garbage and I don't see a fix anytime soon. I don't know what they f***d up between the AP200 and this...but my V40 sounds good enough for me.

    Maybe there will be another firmware update by the time I get my AP80 from the Kickstarter... (Looking for something positive to say)

    On DEC 25 I did get my first reply from HIDIZS saying I would receive tracking by the end of that week.
    - So far, no tracking, so it still may not have even shipped...
    - Definately not impressed with Hidizs' basically neglecting its kickstarter supporters.
    - Probably last HIDIZS device for me.

    Where is @kenloveme Anyway? I suppose since he is Marketing, and Not Customer Support, that his job is complete ? So no need to visit this site any longer... HiDIZS has still learned nothing.

    Well at least you got a response from them, I can't even get that.

    I'm giving them until Monday for my unit to show, then I'm starting the charge back. Just so frustrated with this. Also, hate that my first post here wasn't a positive one, but more of one out of frustration from the total lack of respect this company shows their backers/customers.

    Yes sorry your first post had to do with these clowns- I don’t see them being around in the long run, you’ve got to take care of your customers and they surely don’t do that.

    Besides that if you’ve had any other small daps you can see that the AP80 isn’t really anything special. And the other companies always have a presence in their products threads( after the sale ) except Sony but Sony usually has very good ‘complete’ firmware when they launch and have very good hardware.

    My point is you could get a FiiO M6 for what the AP80 is going for or for a little more money an R3, plenue D etc. Hell even Sony nw a45 was on sale for 150 dollars not that long ago. All are better units imo, and I’ve tried them all except the m6, and I’m sure m6 will have a smoother, more responsive UI and DSD that won’t hiss. Hidizs is a total joke, and seems a bad one.

    Anyways welcome and maybe your future dap purchased be better :wink:
