    Where are people getting the Amazon HD app? From the Amazon underground store, or other sources?

    Google Play store. It’s the Amazon Music app... good luck getting it too work.

    Well, Amazon seems to indicate that the app should be sourced from their store which is, I think, called the Amazon underground. My suggestion is to try downloading the app from there and see if that improves matters. I have tended to sideload apps but in this case I think I may actually stick to the suggested source. When I get around to it....

    Hey, great idea... never thought of that one..I’ll try as well when I can find time. Thanks for tip to try...

    The DP-X1 is a mobile phone with DAP capability. The N5ii and N5iiS is a DAP with a heavily customized Android 5.1. So from third party application s compatibility point of view, the DP-X1 is indeed superior over N5ii and N5iiS.

    Can someone check out the Application Permission required by Amazon HD? Does it require access to any phone or SMS features in Android System?

    I didn't want to offer any false hope to our users, we didn't intend to perform any system customisation or optimisation because of a new streaming app coming up almost 20/15 months after we launched our N5ii/N5iiS player, but we'll use our experience and expertise to help our users getting the best utilisation from our products.
    Cayin Stay updated on Cayin at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    I don't think you need to make a promise to support Amazon HD; I would agree that this came along well before the product came out. But it sure would be a nice goodwill gesture given the rather long delay between product launch and usability finally achieved with the last firmware revision.

    USB Audio Player Pro:
    Had anybody used this for Tidal? Does it help the sound quality. I find Tidal doesn't sound as good same tracks I have on my device - MQA or CD quality compared to a CD quality FLAC or high res FLAC. Does Tidal resample? Look like USB AUDIO PLAYER bypasses Android.

    I would like to ask Cayin. I owned Cayin N5ii and my 1 year guarantee period ended. Yesterday, 2.5mm jack loose just happened, so I think I want to change the jack to CUI brand like N5iis with local shop audio repair man (in Thailand). So I would like to ask what kind of CUI connector model should I buy from the picture (A,B,C or D)

    Best regard,

    My first N5IIS had no volume increase bug but became unchargable after two months of use. Local dealer kindly replaced it. The second one has the bug. Sometimes volume increases right after the device powering up and loading (firmware ver. 1.7en.)

    There is yet another bug. When the device stops playing a last track in the playlist it does not light up the screen by pressing the on/off button. You have to press the play/pause button again to resume playing the track and only then pressing the on/off button lights up the screen.
    This is annoying.

    Same problem here with N5IIS. Had it replaced by local dealer.

    I am currently on a trial usage for Amazon HD. I gather that it is not supported on the N5II. So I decided to use the N5II as a DAC from my iphone.

    I have successfully used both the Shanling M2S and M0 as DACs for Amazon HD using the latest powered generation of Apple Camera Connecting Kit. With the exact same setup, with the N5II in DAC mode; I get very bad static noise. I don't get those noises with the other two units.

    Anybody experimented with using the N5II as an iphone DAC? Is there some kind of workaround? I do wonder if this behavior is tied in with the inability of the unit to act as a source via USB for the Chord Mojo etc.

    Yes the cayin N5ii just doesn’t work as a dac there is ALWAYS static and music cut out.
  14. originalsnuffy
    This unit is the poor little lost engine that almost made it up the hill. I think I can I think I can..

    The N5iiS and N5ii work best as standalone players, IMO. Great SQ, build, storage capacity; but if you need WIfi/streaming features or DAC look elsewhere. Neither seems finished.
