    Hi @Andykong

    Once again, after powering up today I had to log in again, and I'm stuck on a black screen with Spotify.

    So : auto logout + losing playlists.

    I tried a clean reinstallation but still happening after 2 days. Starting to loose faith.

    I read threads claiming a rom update fixed everything...

    I tried searching threw this thread but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

    How does the sound of the n5ii compare to the ifI nano bl?
  4. Dobrescu George
    Similar enough in resolution and tuning that you need to explain which you'd want in which conditions. iDSD Micro BL would be an improvement, but Nano is pretty close I'd say. If you have N5ii, getting Nano BL won't yiled enough of an improvement to justify adding the bulk. Micro BL would do though.

    On the other hand, if you have neither, then there are multiple things you need to consider, like how much bulk you want to carry, and you can carry, if you prefer stacking vs a single device, etc.

    Thank you sooo much. I've been trying to figure that out by looking at reviews, but didnt work out. Now I can buy the nano to pair with my HTC 10.
  6. Dobrescu George
    To be honest, I experimented a lot with stacking and pairing stuff, and honestly, having one device is actually more comfy always, I do recommend DAC/AMP units, but I never recommend them as being more comfortable than a single DAP, even if a DAP would be more expensive :)

    Lastly, Would you say that one has less hiss than the other? Also sound stage width?
  8. Dobrescu George
    Hiss, I am not sure, I can't hear much with either, neither isn't very hissy with any of my IEMs. I listen loud and barely notice hiss usually, only what really has hiss gets into my attention.

    As for soundstage width, it is hard to say, both are really good :)

    I just got my N5ii. Do all the music files need to be in the same folder to play? I have each artist in it's its own folder, is there .way to add all the folders to a playlist so it plays through them?

    Thanks !

    You can't add folders to a play list but you can easily add the individual tracks in batches into a playlist.

    Hi, my N5II got stuck in recovery menu and I see a notice/warning that says "No Command". I did try to wipe chace partition, wipe data factory reset and to re-install the fw 3.3en form the internal and external storage but all didn't work for me.

    The strange thing is, that when I try to make a factory reset, all data in the cayin download folder still exists.

    Need your help. Here is a screenshot of my issue.

    Thank you in advance.

    To clarify the situation, what firmware were you using before you try to uograde?
    Cayin Stay updated on Cayin at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    Does the player accept 512GB microsd card?
  14. Moonstar
    I have had the latest FW 3.3EN. But I should clarify that I didn't try to make an firmware update, I landed automatically in to recovery mode when I have try to open the device.

    Thank you.

    Rebooting just goes back into recovery mode?
