Thank you! Will transfer some files to you later.

I have no idea how VOX works but it’s an app you download on your phone and from a computer / Mac you can upload to your VOX cloud and play via the app on your phone. You can upload WAV, FLAC, AIFF etc and never had a problem with metadata or artwork!

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?
I had this same issue. I was using the A&K cable plugged into a USB3 port on my PC. Nothing but issues. I then plugged it into my USB 2 port and it worked perfectly. Now every time I plug it into my PC I use the USB2 port. It has connected perfectly every time since.

I have to admit, after a week of using the SR15 I am quite disappointed with it. Sounds great with my headphones but the battery life sucks, and when i hook it up via the 3.5mm out to aux in on my car stereo the SQ is fantastic but the bass is very lacking. Now I can tweak my deck to get the bass to a more acceptable level but I hate doing that as when I switch from the SR15 to CD or another source, the bass is then, way too loud. Using it through BT into my deck is much better but still lacks bass...not nearly as much as when using the 3.5mm out though.

I can use my iphone without issue with my deck and the music sounds good and the bass is deep. So why is it the SR15 can't do that? Because it is the entry level novice player? If it wasn't for that I'd stick with it but this issue is a tuff one for me to swallow, especially with the other problems I have had.

I'm returning the SR15 and will look for another device to use in my car.

A&K stated that the SR15 is not compatible with usb 3.0 ports (Somewhere on their webpage?).
Yes. As I said I found that out. lol, Of course, I wish I knew that before I wasted so much time thinking something else was wrong. Lucky for me my case has two USB 2 ports. Not that it matters any longer, as my SR15, A&K CD Ripper MKII, and A&K case are all going back for a refund tomorrow.

I'm sorry, I meant that it happens with the original cable and also other cables.
I have to try several times, even turn off the SR15 and turn it back on.

After two months of use, I can state a few things.
Also for me some things have been disappointing. It must also be said that this is my first portable player.
First thing great disappointment for the equalizer that is not very incisive and is not active in connection BT.
You will tell me that if you want to listen to music well you don't use the equalizer ... ok but I don't see this big difference with the samsung S9plus phone.
You will tell me, of course ... it depends on the headphones. Ok, I bought some headphones and earphones including:
- Sony WH-1000XM3
- Audio-Technica ATH-SR9
- 1MORE Triple Driver
etc ... but I still don't notice big differences.
The sound is not as detailed as I read, the low frequencies do not feel dry and clean, the highs do not seem well defined.
Furthermore, the battery does not last long.
If it doesn't improve with the next update I think I'll sell it.

In terms of using it with Bluetooth, there’s no advantage over a smartphone. In fact the smartphone might be better if it has LDAC.
