    I had a very similar problem with my i5. I could locate my DLNA servers/files fine, but it wouldn't play any of them. I eventually abandoned the stock player and started using USB Audio Player Pro instead. I'll try again in tonight/tomorrow and see if I still crashes.

    Joined late to this thread but I fully support this transport.
    It js the best investment to get more profit of my Schiit Modi 2 Multibit and Chord Mojo.
    Please RELIC keep me posted if you find it as even I would support a kickstarter crowdfunding

    A great summary on the Tidal and streaming issue, I am looking forward to the Spotify HiFi streaming, keep my finger crossed as i5 has been very smooth with Spotify so far, lets hope the forthcoming Spotify HiFi will also work like a charm.

    Thank you very much for your update and we are glad that this works out for you. Will keep our eyes open for 2.3beta feedback.

    I can't really figure out the issue that you want to clarify with? Do you mean whether i5 can play very loud without distortion? Or i5 will produce very loud sounds (pop sound??) during its operation?

    i5 will generate a very mild "pop" song when it change music format, for example at the end of a CD quality WAV file and your next song is a 24/96 FLAC, then you'll hear a pop sound, not too loud but you can hear it.\

    I have been using this beta on my i5 for the last 4 days very intensively and it does appear much more stable and responsive than 2.2. Haven't tested Bluetooth yet, but it is running very smooth since I installed 2.3 beta.

    Some DAPs have had issues where the volume will intermittently sound to maximum volume without warning. This is especially troubling when people are wearing sensitive IEM. Perhaps this is what they were talking about? If so, then I've never once encountered this kind of FW flaw with it.

    Do anybody know if you connect wireless headphones like the qc35 or the Sony mdr 1000x on the i5?

    Hi everyone.
    I just bought i5 second hand. It was purchased in January. Has been merely used.
    The problem is when I connect with the USB type C cable with my laptop only the USB Mode ''Mass Storage Device''
    actually works and I can transfer music files from laptop BUT my laptop cannot identify the player and/or load the relevant drivers needed for such connectivity.
    Also the same happens when I switch to DAC Mode.
    Would anyone be able to help me??

    Have you downloaded the USB audio drivers on your laptop from the cayin website?

    Make sure you download the right version for your windows.

    So no matter what if your using the I5 as a USB DAC on a PC you'll experience noticeable audio delay?
     
  15. Andykong
    Yes, the basic concept behind Asynchronized USB DAC is to create a buffer in between and cut off the synchronization between the source and the decoding device (i5 DAP). You can only recovery the synchronization by adding a delay in the Source equipment (such as the computer).
