    The sound of the SR15 certainly blows everything else I've used out the water.
    So the one issue I have left is battery life - I'm kinda spoiled there, since I'm coming from a Plenue D, which has a FOREVER lasting battery (and since I splurged on that bonkers XSMax iPhone, there too. Damn thing lasts two days which is forever in smartphone batteries.)

    Which leads me to the question: what power bank is good for using it with the SR15? Anyone here have experience with that? What specs do I need to pay attention to?

    I use an Anker 20000 mAh battery bank, but have used (Many) others, charging power is charging power. The bigger the mAh the longer/more charges you can get out of it.

    I'll second the Anker Power Banks. I always travel with one to charge my phone, DAP or other device.

    You may simply select several folders, that you want to listen to, before the start of playback, and then add more during the listening.

    Hey guys,

    Just an update from me and my WAV situation.

    As a reminder - I posted on here a few weeks back with my issue of not being able to transfer WAVs onto the SR15 and successfully show correct metadata or artwork for the tracks.

    The customer support team at A&K were kind enough to look into this for me. I sent them over some example WAVs via Dropbox. (These WAVs have been edited to show Metadata via Kid3 for Mac - I know they work a they have uploaded to VOX correctly, showing album title, artist info & artwork - No issues.) When these tracks are transferred to SR15 I get no info aside from the file name...

    On receipt of my files the team noted that the tracks were showing NO Metadata (as per picture attached) so it would appear the tracks are showing correct metadata on my Mac & for VOX however when transferred to SR15 or upload to DB etc the metadata is not transferring.

    I have even downloaded another application (Meta) to check metadata info (as per screenshot attached) which again shows correct metadata.

    So I'm all out of ideas. Does anyone else have this issue with tagging WAV files? Am I missing something?

    Any further help or suggestions would be great!

    Help, I have big problems with windows 10 ... USB device not recognized.
    Is it possible that every time I connect the SR15 I have to make at least 30 attempts before being able to see it in the computer resources?
    Do you have a solution please?

    Try another cable.

    If anyone has any solutions or ideas relating to my issue posted yesterday that would be so helpful! :)

    Can you share few files? I can check with KANN CUBE if it does same as SR15. Usually here guys use FLAC as a container of loseless data cause WAV wasnt supposed to carry any additional metadata inside. Did you considered to convert?
  15. imexdanny
    I can certainly provide files however on receipt on files I sent to A&K support they no longer showed the metadata. It appears to show data for me locally and works fine with VOX for some reason but not anything else!

    How am I best sending you over a file or two?
