    Not exactly. My “method” is proposed to demonstrate the hiss itself. On specific tracks, a. e. classic music, there are gaps or intervals in between the instruments (seconds or fractions of seconds) without music play – and there you can hear the hiss.

    Nevertheless, I got your point. As Cayin rep, you seem to have dug into my conclusion that player is not the source of hiss. Other is not so important to you.

    It’s about attitude – you can be disturbed by hiss or you can be ok with that. On the other hand, it is obvious you cannnot deny the situation.

    Hi Andy and thank you for your reply. Maybe you are right. However, that issue happened the moment I upgraded firmware. Could be coincidence but weird thing is that it works only in reverse order. I know that on my Olympus cameras and lenses you can choose direction of the dials and/or rings, so maybe in my I5 some bug creped in to cause this phenomenon?

    According to my Structural Engineer, the i5 volume control is specially design to deliver the kind of heavy, accurate control, in order to achieve that, we have a small mechanism to stop the mechanism to move up and down on one direction only. If this small mechanism failed, your problem will exist.

    I can't be 100% sure that this is happening in your i5, scientifically we can only said this is the most likely explanation from engineering point of view, we have to examine the unit to verify our hypothesis. Up till this moment, this is the first complaint of similar nature in i5 history, so we shall remain skeptical in due course.

    Boot Up problem with Cayin i5
    Turned it off yesterday, today wont turn on
    Wont conect to Pc , wont charge from pc (no charging light) Screen not turn on.
    1 Month old

    Conected with Cowon Wall charger
    after 15 minuts it finaly start charging and light up
    this is strange but this is not how it should be
    if battery was depleated it should charge right away when conected to pc
    and charging light should start blinking

    Update of what happened:

    1. Cayin i5 Turned of yesterday, Today did not turn on
    2. conected to Pc made conection sound, Did not conected, charging light
    did not light up, screen not light up
    3. Conected with Cowon Wall charger , at first charging light not turn on
    but screen light up a bit but still black screen
    4. After 15 minuts charging light begin blinking
    Charging light did not flash when conected to Pc as it should, only with wall charger
    5. Was able to turn on Cayin i5 , say battery 5%
    6. Now screen is totaly turned on and it is charging
    I am able to acess everything on the player, have not tried conect it to pc yet will wait until charged

    Update 2:
    45 minuts cayin i5 has been charging
    it has gone slowly up from 5% to 12% this takes time

    Looks like the battery is drained and the protection mode kicked in, the system refused to turn on until the battery has charged back to a safety level. To minimise potential damage to lithium battery, charging will restricted to low current at protection mode, that's why you need to wait for 10-20 minutes (depends on the condition of the battery) before the system is fully activitated.

    I have also received 25 email from you at our support email services during the past hour, sorry for unable to respond to you earlier on the Sunday afternoon of our National Day, We are glad that the situation has resolved promptly after all.

    This is not so good when I conected it to pc, the Charging light should start blinking and it should charge, It Did not charge thats not normal
    conected by wall charger took like 10 minuts until charging began and it started blinking
    I dont understand why it did not charge before 10 minuts conected to pc, then charging should start right away
    that could be an error in the machine.

    It is slowly charging now moved up from 5% to 15% in 1 hour

    Oh, When conected cayin i5 to charge it , when it did not start charging
    the Screen light a bit up like backlight so electricity came to it but very little (but screen still black)
    then after 10 minuts it started charging (slow cpu)

    In case you want to give battery calibration a shot on your i5, here's Andy's post on how to do it:

    https://www.head-fi.org/threads/cay...-pcm-64-128-dsd.802382/page-221#post-13622670

    Seems it has helped a few folks who were facing erratic gauge problems with their batteries.


    Happy Holidays Andy and to all at Cayin.

    has such good potential

    I have Compared the Sound to My Cayin i5 to Fioo X5 III
    And i am very Surprised Cayin i5 sound louder and better than Fioo X5 III, i even tried with poweramp
    The sound on Cayin i5 is louder which i enjoy, i have volume set on 40 on Cayin with my Denon AH-MM400 headphones
    applied DB gain both on Cayin and Fiio , And i must just Congratulate Cayin For having Such a Wonderful sound
    On Fiio I must set the volume to like 70 to get Equal high sound and is still lightyears away from Cayin sound

    Despite All the problem i have I can no other than to recomend Cayin i5 For its sound is Just Awesome
    Thanks Cayin for having such a wonderful sound on Cayin i5.
    Now if i am able to get louder sound on X5 III without higher the volume then i be happy

    They are different amplification circuits, You can’t compare the two and say one sounds better because you have it louder. As humans we’re conditioned to hear louder as better.

    The only way to compare the two is set one at your normal listening level. Then - using test tones and an SPL meter, set the other to the exact same volume level (within 0.1 dB). Then play the exact same track on both and with same headphones, compare. Do not touch the volume on either device when making the comparison.

    That is the only way to make a valid and fair comparison.

    Does 3rd party apps like foobar, neutron utilize dac? Or it is only the native player that runs the full hardware setup?

    Hi there
    Been happy user of the Cayin i5player for a few months now, I have one problem though if someone could help it would be awesome.
    It seems that I cant install JBL Connect from play store. I got the message your device is not compatible with this version. Is there a solution for this? I can use 2 JBL Charge3 only in mono and not in the stereo because of the incompatibility between the player and the app.
    Edit:

    I have answered to myself, the solution is simple I downloaded app on a smartphone and put them in stereo mode via phone. Luckily the speakers stay in stereo mode even after power on and off and after reconecting them to the Cayin i5.
    I`m a happy camper now... :))
