    Mini disc did kick ass, I have very fond memories of it.

    Sold a minidisc deck from a Pioneer system few months ago. Did not use it much for music though, mostly used minidiscs for data at work. Then it became difficult to find units to read them!!!

    I dont know.
    There doesnt seem to be an information screen everytime.


    @kenloveme Hidizs rep says

    “Ap80 does support Aptx codec, no worries! :), you can see it when you set your earphones/headphones on Bluetooth mode. The A symbol on the top screen means the aptx is activated. “


    When i connect sometimes I get the SBC other times by the BT icon top left corner by the BT symbol is an A.

    *Could this be the APTX indicator? I dont know. (EDIT: Yes).

    AP80 to FiiO FB1 earphones had the A.
    AP80 to iFi xDSD had the A.
    AP80 to Shanling m0(set to APTx) SBC. Had a S.
    Ipod touch 6G to ap80 no A (SBC)
    Shanling to to AP80 no A (SBC)

    I did connect it to the iFi Audio xDSD and it said ‘iFi HQ (aptX) Audio’ but i dont think thats conclusive. More of a name in the search settings.

    (I need a manual...)


    - Results inconclusive.
    EDIT( A by the top left BT icon means APTx).


    @IryxBRO do you have any idea?
    Not sure where to go from here.


    Additional Shanling m0 as source BT set to APTx
    AP80 recieving.


    Annnnd back the other way...



    Thats all I have sorry folks. Sorry.


    And this is why I dont do a full review or comparisons on devices until the end of (KS/IGG) campaigns when the final software/firmware and hardware builds are finally finalized.


    *Hibylink is a quite clever and handy remote

    Good idea, looks like they still have to finalize the firmware- like does it really support aptx or is it more like apt????

    And hopefully LDAC happens sooner than later.

    Sorry, cannot help on that now cause don't have any receiver or headphones with AptX support.

    Moreover, never understood buying HiRes audio source to acquire the excellent SQ and limiting it on the last line by AptX or other wireless protocols... IMO

    To answer your question....the car, my friend, the car. My car has APTX reception and sounds nearly the same as running a line out from a DAP. The plus for running the dap’s Bluetooth here is that o can control the basic functions from my steering wheel so I don’t have to fiddle with the player while I’m driving. Also APTX cable for earbuds when doing chores around the house. Very useful for not getting hung up on doorknobs or catching fire when cooking scrambled eggs over the stove.

    @ExpatinJapan As you mentioned it and sharply noticed, it is an indicator to show if the connected earphones/headphones support apt-X. The A symbol on the top screen means the Aptx-X is activated :). So yes, AP80 does really support Apt-X. :)
