I sincerely hope it is a better network player. If they are indeed our competitor as you have put it, and they come out with a competing product 1 year later, as you have put it again, they should beat the iDAP-6 in each are every area. This is how it should work in digital audio market, and this is why digital audio market is advancing rapidly.
It is certainly a very interested product, but Aune S5 has not any English supports. Though Linux and FPGA is excellent for Coax/I2S output. Do we have any FPGA inside the IdAP6 ?

iDAP-6 can playback music file on USB thumb drive and SSD external disk. We have tested up to 6TB HDD (single volume formatted) and iDAP-6 can cope with that without any problem.

iDAP-6 should be able to work with RME adi-2 dac through USB, Coaxial and optical digital connection.

iDAP-6 has a FPGA built-in, we used it mainly for DSD signal processing.

Everybody compere idap-6 + some dac with Pioneer N-70AE?
I'm thinking if I would buy idap-6 + some DAC for 700€
Or a streamer with already built-in DAC in the same price range

regards,
Simon

Don't talk about Roon if there is no firmware update since Feb 18.There are still a lot of unresolved bugs. I think Cayin already gave up on this model.

One more question: Did anyone test idap-6 with Denafrips Ares DAC? I would like this combination the most.
Now I have a diy linux player and Topping D30.

I am using with Terminator via I2s (HDMI cable) and is working fine. It might has pop sound while switching between PCM and DSD, so I use 1 SD card for PCM and another 1 for DSD.

I am interested in the IDAP-6 to feed my stereo. I have an RPi running RuneAudio going into a Singxer SU-1 for I2S to my Holo Spring KTE L3.

I can see the IDAP-6 replacing the RPi and the Singxer SU-1 with I2S directly from the IDAP-6 to the Holo Spring. This seems like a much more elegant solution to me, but will it be any improvement in sound quality? The price of the IDAP-6 seems a bit high and so far it seems unproven in the US market. It's really tough to jump blindly into the IDAP-6.

I think it should be better than RPi, I am in US and I bought from musicteck.

The pop sound is DAC dependent. When we test with DAC from PS Audio, the pop sound is almost unidentifiable. The pop sound from Denafrips is relatively louder, but the companion of pop sound goes to AK4490 based DAC, fortunately there isn't a lot of I2S equipped DAC are based on AK4490, that's why we cannot add I2S to current iDAC-6 conveniently.
