    Headfonics review didn't touch on
    (1) DSD playback
    (2) i2s (this should be one of the selling points right?) SQ
    (3) DSD over DLNA
    and, Cayin IDAP-6 now selling at $699?

    If the team from Cayin wants to create a modern file transport compatible with modern HiFi standards, it can not go back in time and forget that good sound can be achieved through bluetooh or airplay.
    Based on these standards, we will never achieve a good sound. Therefore, you need to focus on the full functionality of DLNA, which in iDAP-6 does not work to the end (no gapless). The Tidal service is also missing for full happiness. By running but also no gapless. Of course there are other errors that have already been written about. In my opinion, handling gapless via dlna (including Tidal) is the most important priority for iDAP-6 to be better than the competition.

    Give them time to work out the bugs. FiiO initially released their portable DAPs without gapless for over six months before releasing a firmware that added it (some users contend it still didn't get fixed for a long time after that).

    But I have to admit, you are talking about a single instance of gapless not working using a specific NAS protocol. People not using that protocol confirm that gapless does indeed work on the iDAP-6. If it went beyond your problem, I would say it truly is a design flaw...however, your case appears to be unique and therefore a software (or setting) bug. Just give them time to identify and fix it. I won't even mention how long it took any DAP maker to start implementing streaming service support. Besides, if your NAS or other device hooked on your network supports Tidal, why does the iDAP-6 have to? You can connect your streaming device to the iDAP-6 and play via network or Bluetooth. What more do you want in a $799 player?

    Constantly berating them over everything is counterproductive for you, them, and everyone else on this thread. Yes, you have a valid issue. Give them time to identify, duplicate, and fix the problem. Work with them via PM. Send them all of your specific settings, network architecture, and info to help them duplicate the problem. Then perhaps you will have helped them and us by being the one who helps quash the bug.:smile:

    Cheers and Good Luck!:beerchug:

    No, unfortunately just the DAC and AMP. Check the Music Teck web site. They are on sale for $699 but the iDAP is still selling for $799.

    Of course, you are right. I am patiently waiting for the repair of the problems described above. The gapless problem has nothing to do with the structure of my home network and NAS configuration. Gapless does not work even when streaming Tidal by Bubbleupnp and this proves that the problem is the renderer (iDAP-6). There is no need to go any further in this matter but you have to fix it. As for the price of $ 799 and listening to music via bluetooth or airplay - please forgive - this is not a hifi sound. I do not buy it. We are therefore waiting patiently to repair iDAP-6 errors.

    I plan to get the iDAP-6 when I get home from my holiday trip. I've been talking to the folks at Music Teck and the demand for these is pretty high. I hope they have one in stock when I'm ready. I plan to hook up a hard drive with my music library and control everything from my tablet. Then I can immerse myself in the music and ignore the world!:beyersmile:

    Cheers and all the Best!:beerchug:

    ha Mr. HK_sends in this case you told us that Cayan ignore world !!!
    Better name fort this device is 'Desktop Stand Alone HiFi Player' you don't need network connection with hooked HDD and you can control iDAP-6 via Bluetooth I think from your tablet if he have BT chip.
    Or maybe this is little bigger portable music player ??
     
  8. HK_sends
    No, I said I could ignore the world because for me, the Cayin iDAP-6 will do just what I need just to enjoy my music!:L3000:
    YMMV of course...:deadhorse:

    Cheers and Happy Holidays!:beerchug:

    If you are a little undemanding as to the functionality, this device is for you. I am waiting impatiently for the software patches.

    There is another problem. I have a new Huawei Mate 10 phone with Android 7.0 EMUI 5.1. I do not want to pair too much via bluetooth with idap-6. I need to do a dozen attempts before it joins. Is any software upgrade foreseen in the near future?
    More and more mistakes are shown and the people responsible for correct operation are still silent.
