Isn't amp 8 better?
I haven't had a chance to try it yet. It is 4.4mm and I only have 3.5mm stuff with me (I'm still on Easter Holidays with my family), so I really don't know, but AMP7 really really impressed me.
Neutron...Is anybody using Neutron as 3rd party player on their N5iis? A little confusing, any setup tips?
64 Bit Processing =yes
Resampling = Audiophile
Audio Hardware =
Dither - yes
Ultrasonic Filter - yes
Hardware Gain - yes
Audio Focus - yes
DSD, DSD over PCM - yes
Oversample - no
Follow source Frequency - yes
This look typical of your setup?
Neutron is a good alternative, we worked with Neutron to enable Hi-Res support, do you can bypass Android SRC when you use Neutron in N5ii and N5iiS.
That's binary search, simple and efficient. I done that several time with my music library when I need to debug corrupted files, it was horrible when I did this for the first time, fortunately Music Library is a cumulative database, meaning you only add new items to you library, you dontd edit them (well, rarely). So instead of using binary search, I break my library into pieces according to year of database entries and scan them year by year. With that I can always remember the years that I have drbugged, and when I run into problem again, I can start the debug process again from where I left.
The DX220 is a very good upgrade for N5ii, you get must faster CPU and a high quality screen to start with, almost certain that it will improve your user experience instantly.
I auggest you give yourself a treat and go for the Amp7 or Am8, or both, depends whether your IEM collection is single ended or balanced, or whether you need Line out. Trust me, if you go for Amp3 or Amp5, you will be tempted to move up to Amp7 or Amp8 very soon, you can mark my word for that.
Considering it but probably won't get another amp module anytime soon due to budget constraints.
Even then I'll still have to see if the size of the DX220 is ok first.
One simple question that I need inputs from N5ii/N5iiS users.
After a lot of attemp, we can solve the 2sec delay, finally. The solution involve a lot of low level programming and the worst part is, the new code will deteriate the USB Audio and created high background noise. I understand the current USB Audio is not good beyond 16Bit/48kHz, but this new beta firmware will make the USB Audio even unusable at all sampling rate.
If we go for this solution and pack it into a new firmware, we'll either disable the USB Audio completely, or pop up a warning on the noise problem of USB Audio. Yes, this is not ideal in both case, but we honestly cantc find a way to solve the 2sec delay bug and keep the USB Audio intact simultaneously.
We are sourcing opinion from our dealers right now, if you have a preference, you can tell me here or by PM. I am heading to Munich today, will check again when I settle down at my Munich hotel.
USB Audio output or USB DAC mode?
If its USB audio output then its fine for me.
USB audio out is useless to me anyways. Its unusable. I’m ok with having it disabled.
Another vote for disabling. Happy to see the infamous 2 second bug squished.
I am fine with no USB Audio Out as I dont use that feature
Disable USB audio out, USB DAC is fairly static prone anyway as well
I would be happy to see the 2 second delay go away. Perhaps a fix to that with this release, and possibly a future release to quash the USB issues would be nice.
Would we still be able to use the unit as a USB DAC / AMP with this proposed firmware?
I am pleased to hear that some updates for this unit may happen.
@Andykong any update on the startup volume issue where the device doesn't startup at the preset volume, it plays at the previously used volume? I still feel like this is a big issue for damaging ears/headphones between uses.
