    I can answer that . I did multiple factory resets and still experiences random reboot. Would it be crashing? Aside from Android launcher crash experience.

    Sorry, this is off topic on what you all currently speaking about. Often there been a back and forth argument, whether burn in makes a difference. I know it been posted that Dx200 needs 200hrs of burn in to hear the difference. How does the burn in actually work on daps or dacs?

    mainly about capacitors. It needs electricity passing thru for some period of time until its C value is as same as the face designed value.

    Regarding capacitors, they stabilize after a while but it takes time. I have a Sencore LC102 that test ESR, can condition and stabilize caps and gives extremely accurate capacitance readings. I have put caps that are supposed to be 470uF on it that measure in the 300's in uF. After a lot of conditioning with it they will often come up to 470 or in that area but will vary and after more time will stabilized. So you have current and want it stable, the best ESR the cap has etc and the Sencore has shown me what is going on. Even resistors are better after some burn in. Opinions will always vary. If you hear no difference that is fine and nothing wrong with that. I do hear differences and have over the years but again, some people do and some don't.

    Do we have concern in heat for burn in? The burn in cable line input makes the device sooooo hot. Not warm but hot. I am concern it may damage the screen.

    Surely it is hot. I need to use electric fans blow along burning in period. But it doesn't damage the screen or any backfire.

    Thanks bro.
    It is insanely hot in mine.
    What I do is I place it over any heat shrink surfaces like PC desktop housing or any metal that functions as heat dissipation.
    Without the leathercase of course. 
    This is to prevent the literal "burn in". badumm tsss!

    Thanks for that information. I will try it when i get home from work. I don't know whether to actually install the new version as i see lots of people are having problems once they update.
    I managed to install tidal last night using the idea suggested in this forum where you convert the url of the tidal page on playstore into a kind of link, place it in internal memory and run it. It worked great. I couldn't download it direct from playstore as it says i don't have any device.
    Just need to do that with qobuz now. I have started a free trial with both providers so i can test them both on the player.

    Mine has been burning in for the last couple of days using the dongle but it only gets warm. And that is with the case on. I am waiting for a balanced cable to arrive from Forza audioworks in Poland. Once that gets here i will continue burn in with my headphones.
  10. artpiggo
    I think it is just everyone has different threshold of expressing temperature. warm of one = hot for the other = insanely hot for another. 
    By the way, congratz for the balanced cable. it is a lot improvement from Single End on this device.

    No. This unit doesn't get as hot as the DX100 used to. My review unit burned in for over 300 hours with no detrimental effect whatsoever. Just leave it out of it's case when burning in. I'm not sure why you needed a fan artpiggo. I live in NYC and had the unit next me every day, it wasn't that hot for me.

    Don't underestimate Tropical weather.

    Understood. lol
