    Been listening to the balanced for the last 2 days- really nice. A bit more of everything, dynamics, detail, and stage/layering. Really excellent. :)

    Also my unit isn’t getting warm anymore, and what’s weird is I swear the battery is draining slower/lasting longer. I don’t remember that happening on my AK70, but it could have, I just ignored the getting warm part because at the time I had a mojo and was used to gear getting warm :wink:

    On second thought I have gotten used to the sound and dialed the volume back a bit so maybe that’s where the perception of better battery life is coming from.

    Nope didn’t watch it, but if you have a pc you could use that for playlists right?

    Anyways it was kind of a joke :wink:

    Hey SR15 owners,
    First time with Tidal and I got an offer of $1.99 for 3 months before deciding $9.99 monthly thereafter.
    Listening to my favorite songs I heard before on CDs. I am curious that to be able to download the songs to listen offline I must admittedly use the Tidal full version, right? Where do I need to download all my favorite songs to? Neutron, Onkyo HF player or anything? Thank you.

    I've noticed mine getting less warm too now that I have had it for a while. I suspect that the heats is due to background indexing - now that I have had it a while I am rarely adding or deleting music so the requirement fo indexing will have diminished. This will have the knock on effect of making the battery drain slower - would have taken a lot of energy to get the thing as hot as it did in the past.

    Hey guys, i'm fairly new here so thanks for having me.
    I'm expecting to receive my sr15 tomorrow. So i'm waiting with great expectations after reading this whole topic.
    I am coming from an echobox explorer so should be a huge step-up
    At the moment i have one question: do you think the native tidal will get an update so it supports both mqa and offline listening?
  8. abitdeef
    Makes complete sense, I thought maybe it was the amplification circuit settling in but who knows. I’d say I have about 50 or so hours on it- give or take.
  9. abitdeef
    Welcome Kenny! Here’s your answer. :) Oh and MQA support was added in the latest firmware release.

    What are the best places to download some hi-res music? I've been listening to tidal hifi mostly but i'm curious to hear the full potential of the sr15.

    How many hours do you have on it? And what cans are you using

    If anyone cares - been running my SR15 pretty much non-stop for 3 days. Haven't noticed the slightest warmth, streaming or otherwise.
