    lack of updates is concerning
  2. noobandroid
    I'm also sick and tired of dap, they mostly just don't update comprehensively, and will always have issues here and there, fix an issue and another issue appears, and some even outright doesnt update anymore after only a short time span
  3. nekromantik
    to be fair I have none of those issues, my buttons dont skip tracks, both my laptops reconize the player fine without me needing to change settings and dont find UI slow.
    my main downside is battery life and no neutron still

    Loving SR15. One question though:

    Just tried Amazon ultra HD and it seems that the Amazon music app reports the device capability as 24-bit / 48 KHz and is playing at that resolution instead of track’s 96 KHz. This is shown when you play an Ultra HD marked track and click on the ULTRA HD text in the now playing screen.

    Do I need to do some adjustments or is this a limitation of Amazon Music App or Open App service in SR15.

    Here is the screenshot:

    It’s the Amazon Android app. No matter the device it’ll cap out at 24/48.

    mine also experiences low battery life. The weird thing here is i can easily listen for 1-2 hours and it only consumes 20-30% battery; but when it's in standby mode, the battery drains out completely.

    There is allways one man, that says "everything works good for me" :)

    I've noticed the same issue, mine can have 30% charge when off and when I goto use it, its completely dead, has to be a firmware issue

    i'm new to this audio game, and sr15 is my first DAP. Should i switch my IEM stock cable (which is 3.5) to the 2.5 bal. ? Does it really make a difference ?

    I am using an SR15 with V3 Andromeda single ended stock cable. I too wondering about going balanced on the SR15. Also has anyone used the Andromeda Golds with the SR15, do you lose the black background with the even lower impedance from the OG Andromeda’s.

    I got balanced cable and with Andromeda S it does not really make a large difference. But with Focal Clear or Sony Z1R yes. U would say that when you need more power it's more audible then.
    Tried gold version - all good. Gold is really nice and sound is slightly better. Better bas control and mids.

    Some people include me can hear better instrument separation.

    I don't suppose this player supports Apple Music?

    I installed Apple Music through Openapp and it seems to work fine. Listening to it now.
