    I have both the new and old i5 protective case with me, but I always prefer to use the i5 naked, it just feel good. My i5 is extensively used and left a lot of scratch here and there already, so as long as I don't break the glass, I am happy to let the "history" keep building up. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Got my new case! I will miss having my i5 build up history and character from bumps.

    How much are these going for?

    For the record, the V2 i5 protective cases had sold out recently. The vendor refused to re-make the v2 leather case at small quantity, so we have to fall back to the v1 protective case now and that is not ideal, so any information regarding alternative protective case for i5 is most welcomed.

    The Valentinum case is really nice. I also had it, can recommend it although it will be bit more bulky than with the Cayin v2 case.
    If the v2 case is not available anymore go for the Valentinum case. The Cayin v1 case does not even need to be considered.

    Any chance to have an improvement about gapless ? Listening to The Wall (Pink Floyd) or classical music with the i5 on the stock player is really frustrating...
    I have to use different players but no hi-res and the stock player sounds better in my opinion.

    $45 currently for a custom order :D

    Hi, i dont know if someone already reported this, but it might be useful to know. I was experimenting with my i5 and Mojo and found that using Honkyo HF Player connected via OTG to Mojo, it actually outputs HIRES to the DAC and works flawlessly with gapless.
    It sounds fine with my PM-3 and W60.

    Cayin wants to thank each and every i5 users a Happy Thanksgiving day.

    We are gracious to have you with us, we have had a lot of difficult time with i5, but we have also meet a lot of wonderful people during this course. When we saw an use trying their best to help other i5 users to get the best of their DAP, we see passion and dedication to this hobby, and this is the motivation and driving force to Cayin. Cayin owns you all a big thank.

    I am happy to inform everyone that we have gathered all the resources we need to discuss with Neutron finally, and I'll oversee this discussion in person. I'll try my best to make it work.

    We are looking forwards to continue the journey of sound with you in 2018.

    Keep in Touch! :beerchug::beerchug::beerchug:

    Looking at Cayin home site http://en.cayin.cn/download shows, that there is no new firmware fo i5 since February this year. No Android 5.1.1 no nothing. Wanted to buy i5 for Christmas but I'll wait.

    But Cayin never promised or announced 5.1.1 upgrade, why would someone looking for that?

    Still no firmware improvement from February. Again releasing new product = abandoning software maintenance for all older products.
     
  13. Andykong
    Yes, we didn't release new firmware since February, but can you describe what are the improvements you are expecting from i5?

    i5 is not a perfect DAP, there are outstanding issues but does that equivalent to abandon a product, or the company should not be allowed to develop new products?

    @wylfsyn - I'm curious why you're posting twice in fairly quick succession about firmware updates when it's been made clear that we shouldn't expect more updates. @Andykong has been very transparent about this in his posts in this thread.

    Rounding back to the i5 itself, I need to contact Valentinum. That i5 case @JaeYoon posted pics of looks great, but it was no longer available for sale.

    It is. You have to send a message to valentinum and he will prepare another i5 case.
