    I have never come across this problem before, this is the first instance of similar problem from what I can recall. If the level of MP3 file is not created with -6dB setting, then this can be a unique problem that only happens in your Cayin i5. If your dealer is accessible, I suggest you bring the i5 and test it at your dealer's shop and compare against his demo unit, the case can be straight forward if his demo unit didn't display similar volume jumping problem with your music file, you can request for warranty service right away and asked the dealer to send the i5 to us for repair.

    If the i5 firmware can be reversed, then I won't worry about the warranty coverage and please feel free to try it out.

    Of course I'll encourage user to play around when they have the resource to do that. As I said earlier on, HeadFi is a user-forum, and we should respect and honor the interest of the users over anything else, so be careful in due course and have fun. :D

    Thanks a lot for the quick response, Andy. The new player I ordered (also from Music Teck) will arrive tonight. I'll test it out, over the next few days, and let you know if it happens on that one. If/when I return the first player to them, I will be sure to let them know about this issue.
    At this point, with the amazing sound and build of the i5, I'll do pretty much whatever it takes to work through this.
    Thanks again.

    I also love that rig, @nmatheis.  I use my IT03 balanced with them.
  6. nmatheis Contributor

    I'll have to try that. IT03 are on a higher level vs LZ-A4. Should be a good combination!

    I wasn't very impressed with a4. Lots of hype in that thread, but I agree the it03 are really much better for a little but more money. Good know know they sound good out of the i5.

    is anyone using the i5 with a Mojo via Coax? can you share the Coax pin configuration? or where you got the Coax cable?
    can you supply the Coax pinouts?

    You can get from this seller on taobao. Select the one for Mojo.

    Are you in Singapore? I am selling off the cable as I no longer have the i5. PM me if you are interested.
  11. karloil
    thanks for the reply. I need a shorter one for portable use.
    on the other hand - I went to the N6 thread and I get to read a lot more:
    So i guess a normal line-out interconnect will do or a DIYed TS plug
  12. kel77
    It is a short one
    This is the same one that I have that is from the link I gave you.
  13. karloil
    oh i see, i didn't notice that you can choose the length. PM me for the condition of the cable, price and meeting areas.
  14. nmatheis Contributor
    I want one of those, but I don't want to order from Taobao, lol.
  15. karloil
    Maybe @Andykong can also confirm the USB C to Coax pinout [​IMG]
