    New software update with support of DS Audio. This is the last thing that was missing in my SR15. As a Synology user, I'm very happy
    Thank you A&K

    Hi Dakchi

    Do u mean we can now stream from our Synology NAS? How do we enable the function?

    ah too bad thatthe SR15 sucks at streaming.... whatever app i use (Qobuz, DSaudio, or even AKConnect) i get this background noise/hiss in the right ear when it's not playing, it's tolerable when music is playing but not during quiet passages. Shame.

    I get no hiss when steaming Tidal or AKConnect. Send the unit back.

    it's my third unit and they all had this issue, it's a very faint electronic/static background noise but once i notice it i get obsessed with it and i can't cope with it.

    No hiss at all when mine is steaming and I’m very sensitive to hiss.

    it's not really hiss, i failed looking for the right word, it's more like you're listening to downsampled music, like you convert a 44Khz audio file to 22Khz...

    If you sent 3 units back maybe its your headphones? been streaming music from the SR15 and nothing but clarity

    I get no noise/hiss through Tidal or Qobuz. Actually I measured the Signal to Noise ratio and it's pretty accurate to the specs they publish.

    I’m getting M5s to try and compare to the SR15 I’ll post some quick ‘subjective’ impressions when I get it. I’m just curious, I love SR15 sound so far it’s my favorite.

    Wish the battery life was a bit better, my only minor complaint.
  13. abitdeef
    Yeah it sounds great through tidal to me.

    Same here. No problems whatsoever. Love it with the Phantoms. :smile_phones:

    Do you guys any good IEM/over ear reccommendations that'll work well with the SR15? I've been thinking about the iSINE 10 and the HD6XX, not sure which is better for the AK though.
