    Okay, let me ask a more general question. How does the Line Out sound on the C10? I ordered one of these off of Joybuy too.
  2. Dark Helmet
    All I know is that I have used the line out and
    Very good! I find it to be very transparent.

    Thanks! That's what I wanted to hear! Something positive.
    I have a question about song bad is that? Is that a thing with this DAP?
  4. Dark Helmet
    Yes the first second or two it cuts off. That is the one thing that drives me nuts, but I live with it cause it sounds so good. If the planets align perhaps Colorfly will fix it with a firmware upgrade.

    Hello! Does anyone know if i can somehow talk to joybuy and make them put the current price tag of c10 and not the real one? Reason i'm asking is that, here in our country i have to pay taxes over the amount of 200USD. If they would put the original price tag, i would have to pay taxes then which is a dealbreaker :frowning2:
  6. Dark Helmet
    The price is $143.99. It's lower than $200.
  7. Rendster
    Yep, but i read somewhere here in this forum that they are putting the original price tag and not the 143$. :frowning2:
  8. Dark Helmet
    Have you been to the site? It says $143.99.

    I'm sorry it was just a misunderstanding, i thought the original price they are saying is the SRP (over 200$) and not the selling price (143$). Someone just explained it to me.

    There will be a split second cut off at the beginning of every song track when listening via it's headphone out (But if it's listening via Line Out, there's no cut off problem).
    How bad? I will say, in most cases, really no big deal.
    Will you ever notice the cut off? Well, it's there....but really depends on individual track on whether how soon the music start playing.
    That is, only on some song when the singing start immediately at the first second, you will notice the cut off.

    A good example will be Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now'
    Normally, it should sound like this when play
    "Tonight I'm going to have myself a real good time / I feel alive / And the world I'll turn it inside out, yeah / And floating around in ecstasy / So don't stop me now / Don't stop."
    On C10 via headphone Out, you will hear
    "night I'm going to have myself a real good time / I feel alive / And the world I'll turn it inside out, yeah / And floating around in ecstasy / So don't stop me now / Don't stop."

    For most songs, the singing or music do not start immediately.
    As such, most of the time, you will not notice the split second cut-off at the beginning of tracks.
    And even if you know there's this the cut-off...over will get used to it and just simply enjoy the high quality music play out from C10.

    A bigger question every prospective C10 buyers should ask yourself...Can you listen to live album without gapless?

    Some albums like Eric Clapton's Unplugged, Pink Floyd's The Wall need gapless to enjoy.
    But if you have ever used DAPs like Shozy Alien, Colorfly C3, Fiio M3 and are ok with no gapless, then you should be fine with C10.

    Thank you for that, very helpful!
    Like the C3 and Alien, I create Cue files to combat this issue. I’m guessing this would work on the C10 as well? Except for the very first track probably...

    There is something I forgot to mention when I first got my C10.
    I tried using all my FAT32 formatted working microSD Cards from my various DAPs on C10, but my C10 had trouble recognising them.
    Finally, I have great success using a extFAT 128GB microSD.
    So for new C10 users, if you have problem with FAT32 cards, you may try use extFAT cards.

    Glad my post is helpful.
    Of course, I still remember that you had shared out the Walnut Original Music Files to me previously. Thank you for that. :)

    Good point. I still had not used LO, only got C10 for portable use, but at home, where I have no problem with stacking, connected to the E12, it works perfectly.

    Certainly, apart from cut off, C10 has some problems (not remembering the song it was playing, contents of SD card not ordered alphabetically) that make it difficult to recommend for daily and portable use, and that's the reason I'm going for the N5 II, but for long listening sessions at home, and bypassing the cut off through LO and external amp, C10 is really great.
  14. Rendster
    I took my chances and grabbed the gold version. Hoping for the best. Goodluck to me hehe :)
  15. silverfishla
    This is great news to hear that the LO has no song cut off!
    Can you make playlists on the player? Or favorites?
