    ... You can hold the power button down when charging powered off till the charging symbol appears THEN release the button, it won´t power up.

    Is there a way that the player sorts artists by album artist? I really don't like to have a list of. All. Artists that contributed to a compilation

    Any status on the external playlists issue. Not sure how often I should bother you.

    In your opinion, does it have a better sound sr 15 norma than balanced with headphones or connected to a mojo with headphones?
    Has anyone tried?
  6. maira
    deal breaker...

    Only been able to listen for about 45 minutes in offline mode, but so far no issues. Hopefully it’s been fixed!

    That’s not bad for the quality of the amp, the speed of the UI and the size of AK SR15. Unless you go with a much bigger dap, or one with less power like a small cowon and a decent size battery, or a Sony with class D- you’re not going to do much better.

    My girlfriend has been having that exact same tidal issue for months on her phone. Tidal support made her jump through a whole bunch of hoops, e-mailing back and forth for weeks without any results. She ended up cancelling her tidal subscription and getting spotify.
    I never had an issue on my phone though. Never tried offline on the sr15 yet. I was thinking it's a combination of tidal with certain versions of android that causes some issues.

    Excellent. Please let me know if you do experience any further issues.

    Well its 6-8 h at best. SE, no screen etc. . Most User will get 5-6h. So you have to charge every day. (For some it doesn´t even last a whole day if they travel a lot).

    I thought, better ak sr15 balanced or connected to the mojo?

    To my ears SR15 balanced is good enough and don’t need to connect to Mojo. :wink:

    If you’re going to be driver harder to drive cans mojo of course. And of course it’s got a wider sound stage. If you have normal ohm headphones under 300 ohm, or iems you can have one unit that sounds great without stacking.

    With mojo of course you need a dap, and because it’s not cheap why spend 700 dollars on a dap if you’re going use it as a transport? I mean it would make a great transport, I just don’t see the need.

    Bottom line, yes mojo sounds a bit better- it’s got more power and a great dac. But sr15 sounds great and it’s all in one :wink:

    Thanks for the answers, I currently use hiby r3-mojo but if instead of the r3 we put sr15 will be a better source, but if sr15 in balance is higher than the mojo would be better.
