    Thanks, yes I disabled in Win 7 with bcdedit, but didn't find the setting in the Bios...

    Does your music player support upsampling to DSD? I'm curious if that'll work on the N3 (worked for my M2s).
    Foobar2000 does have the capabilities for upsampling, but I can't stand using it so I've never put much effort getting it to work. DAPhile has upsampling baked in so that was just a matter of switching it on

    I no longer have my two N3's, but I'm glad to see Opus is now supported. More DAPs need to add Opus support!

    I mainly would like to use Spofity. With Foobar DSD (DSD track) I still had the pops.

    Too bad that didn't help. Thanks for trying anyhow

    Happy Chinese New Year

    This is a special time for family reunion, so we are taking a break to travel all the way back home.

    Thank you very much for all the support we have received. May the New Year brings happiness and prosperity to you and your family.

    Our office will close from 11th to 25th February, and we'll resume duty on 26th February 2018.

    Hi CayinSupport,
    I have the Cayin USB to Coaxial cable. Tried to connect the player to my Dac's coaxial input. The music comes through in "bits" a milisecond of music then a pause then a milisecond of music. I also tried on another Dac and with that Dac no sound. Are there any other setting that need to be changed ?

    Thank you !

    Cayin USB-C to Coaxial adapter cable is kind of plug and play, it is a proprietary embedded signal and has nothing to do with USB format, we just "borrow" the USB connector to do that, therefore you don't to change any setting in order to get the coaxial output to work.

    When you said your tried on another DAC and with that DAC no sound output at all, can you tell me the coaxial input is LOCKED correctly? You should either see a green LED light up, or the screen will display the Bit depth and Sampling frequency correctly.

    If you have chopped up signal within one DAC, and cannot lock correctly with another DAC, that it likely something is wrong upstream, it can be the cable or the Coaxial output from your N3 DAP. In either case, the easiest thing to do is to drop by your dealer and test your Cayin USB to coaxial cable with their Cayin DAP demo units.

    Hi, been a while since i have visited the forum but kept testing my N3 everyday. As a normal player all is nice and fine but as a DAC connected to my gaming laptop is a let down, cracklings and thinner sound. I know it is not the right forum to ask this but anyone has been using the FiiO Q1 Mark II ? I would very much like the upcoming Q3 but God knows when it will be released so i am interested in this Q 1 Mark II until then for my laptop. Some will say go with the AudioQuest Dragonfly Red but i can't because i also want to use this DAC AMP with my TV through the audio jack out.

    I think the right place to ask is the FiiO thread :thinking:

    Hi, Docholliday,
    many thanks for your answer and sorry about my late message.
    I've try to reproduce the test you said me, with a neutral headphones, and now everyting seems correct.
    Thanks again for your help.

    Yesterday, I tried to connect the N3 to my Beresford Caiman DAC, with a USB-C to USB B 2.0.
    When I try to play a file, I receive the next message:
    play failed . not support the file!
    and the N3 reboot after a few seconds. When I play the same file with headphones, I don't have any problema.
    I tried this cable between the DAC and a HTC 10, and I can reproduce the same file on my HiFI system.
    Please, is this cable compatible with the N3?
    I'have upgraded to firmware 3.0, but the message appairs too.

    Glad you got it figured out!

    Although inially my supplied USB C cable worked for both data transfer and charging, it's now gone the way of everyone else's it seems and will now only charge - PC saying it doesn't recognise the device. Any advice on a replacement or doesn't it matter too much as to what USB C I get?
