    Lurker0's custom firmware includes an optimized version of Hiby, although I do not know really what it entails.

    i don’t think it support DX200 fully. I was hoping to it support dsd or flac format but apparently it restrict output to 48khz.

    Where can I download the custom firmware? Does the optimised version of hiby support dsd output on DX200?
  4. Signal2Noise
    Well....you can just search this thread for Lurker0 member name and all the info you need is in his sig. I use his firmware and it's been great.

    As for DSD from Hiby I *think* it does but I don't bother with DSD files as I value battery life.

    I hope you weren't waiting for a reply all this while and successfully discovered the info already. :wink:

    Whats issues can I find if I use Tidal offline with the sd card?

    Already found the answer I need, Hiby does support DSD, just that it doesn't support DSD (or anything more than 48khz ) output via Coax.

    for sure I prefer ARM2 vs dx200+AMP1 in single ended. ARM2 sounds has more body and the difference is, for me, specifcally on the percussions credibility. the punch (that is something you can't "solve" through equalizer...) is definitively more real by ARM2 reproduction. To understand what I mean you need to have both player in your hands and listen them with the same songs. In general the soundstage of dx200 is wider than ARM2 but sometimes too much larger. I mean ARM2 soundstage is enough to be present but not too much to be not beliavable.
    For example the DSD64 of Sultain of Swing in live: if you hear it through ARM2 you can concentrate on the Knopfler guitar that drive you along all the song. While in dx200 you have all micro details too much "present" so Knopler guitar appears less clear and the result is less musical.
    Using dx200 in balanced mode, in particular through AMP3, the comparison with ARM2 changes and the improvement given by a better channels separation gives depth to the dx200 big amount of details, returning the right space to each instruments and obtaining that sound "body" that in my opinion misses in single ended AMP1.

    You shouldn't have any issues. I download and listen to HiFi content offline all the time. It plays just fine,

    I have actually had issues when playing Tidal in online mode. Two or three times last night the music just stopped, and the only way I could restart it was to go to another track. I hope it was just a one off though.

    Do you have your router set to 5GB? It will stutter if not especially with HiFi settings.
