    It supports it but I'd recommend the N3 if your just looking for a transport. If you need 2 card slots then N5ii it is.

    The scroll wheel is silver.

    Random batch issue it is. Could be the ram? Low quality ram can be a possible issue but seriously I'm just grasping at straws here haha.

    I'm tempted to open up my N5ii but I don't want to damage the screws since i dont have helix screwdrivers

    I know this might be getting off topic but do you suggest any other transport with support for USB-input DAC?
  5. seanwee
    The N3 is the most cost effective one for the price.

    Why not use your phone?
  6. ethanduong
    I am using my phone but I hope a dedicated device will improve the SQ
  7. seanwee
    That would be impossible. Get a better dac/amp.

    Maybe a chord mojo or a iFi xDSD
  8. ethanduong
    I listen mainly to instrumentals so I prefer the bright GO2Pro ∞ to the Mojo (bought it and sold it). It also pairs nicer with the HD650 on balanced.
  9. seanwee
    Oh? Then we both like the same type of music :)

    Upgrade your headphones then. I wholeheartedly recommend the Hifiman Sundara. The instrument separation is superb. Very close to TOTL headphones like the LCD-X. If it's too detailed for you then maybe try the HD660S. Still very good.

    Out of curiosity, does HiBy have dedicated staff still available to fix bugs in their firmware for OEM customers like Cayin? I was wondering to what degree Cayin will get support once the causes of some of these key bugs have been identified. I noticed that Shanling has pretty much given up on using HiBy for their new products. Perhaps that two of you (and others like FIIO) should team up and create your own versions of HiBy.

    I still look forward to the launch of improved firmware that can support more posts on the main thread about sound quality and less about bugs.

    I'm not a customer, but I'm watching this thread with interest (from a positive standpoint).

    N5ii seems a nice DAP; I hope the bugs get sorted and people can enjoy it

    Looking forward to updates, I thought my unit was magically cured but unfortunately the gremlins returned.
  14. Slater91
    Please allow me to correct you: it is a great DAP.

    Soundwise it is :D
    Much better than others in its price bracket except for the Opus 1S which some may consider as a warmer alternative while being almost as capable technically.

    Firmware is pretty stable on mine so it's superb. Could use a faster processor though. YouTube videos are laggy but the sound is ok.
