    The M.Chat edition is only available in the EU and parts of Asia due to copyright agreements with the artist.

    Thanks for the confirmation
    So the firmware indeed is CN firmware.

    How about hongkong unit? Will hk unit share the firmware as the global unit?

    Since I cannot read/write any Chinese language, I won't take any chance on the CN firmware.
     
  3. JasonNYC
    Hong Kong will also have the CN firmware which does have English language in edition to Chinese language. Sorry, it's Sunday evening here and I'm not near a computer to look up the languages for each firmware version. I will post the breakdown of each firmware version in a bit.

    Thanks for your support. I'm still in hesitation to purchase the CN firmware. What difference between the CN and the other firmware. How about Indonesia Unit. Considering to travel there also.

    For the FW update, I remember sr15 use OTA upgrade, then it will work for me. As for the warranty, as long as I take the unit back to China then the warranty won't be a problem (I travel a lot in China)

    Thank you

    All firmware, no matter if it is the CM or CN firmware version is done OTA. Both firmware versions are the same except for the language and keyboard supported. You are correct, a player purchased in China would need to be serviced in China.

    CM firmware

    Country : Europe, USA, Japan, Russia, etc. expect for CN version
    Language : English, Korean, Japanese, Russian, German, French
    Keyboard: English, Korean, Japanese, Russian

    CN firmware

    Country : China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea
    Language: English, Korean, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional
    Keyboard: English, Korean, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional

    Thank you for your assistance. Since both of the firmware support English, maybe I will purchase sr15 in China. Considering blue special edition will have 128GB internally.

    Thank you

    Just got a used SR15 from B&H - ordered yesterday - on my doorstep this morning!

    I'm trying to navigate using Folders but don't see how to get back to the parent of the folder I'm in. Any suggestions?

    I too find it frustrating that it takes me back to the main list of Folders.

    Just click on the album art and then press the button on the left (under words "File Path"). It will brought you back to the most recent folder (or other navigation view, that was used).

    Had the same issue with the X7ii. Great player, great sound but teh software really annoyed me. And I have had Fiio stuff for years. Had to sell it after a while and picked up the SR15. Just charging up now so I haven't had a chance to hear it.
     
  12. Recordedmusikaddict
    How long does it take for the A&K A&Norma SR15 to charge up?
     
  13. someyoungguy
    I just got mine and couldn't figure that out either!
     
  14. Recordedmusikaddict
    Me too. Very impressed. The sound is great, powers my Oppo PM2s with no effort, my Shure 585s with crystal clarity. The only downside is Tidal management is a bit of a hassle (simple with Fiio X7ii) and the keyboard is for tiny people. That said, great DAP.

    Its not quick charging from what I can tell, and if you have bluetooth on to drive speakers and wifi on to stream, charging is very slow. Last night I turned bluetooth and wifi off and let it charge on a Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger. It started at 54%. 7 hours later I checked and its 100%.
