I don't have a multimeter but the adapter works fine. I've tested it by using the K5 Pro adapter on a Philips lamp and the lamp powers up.

Using the adapter of the lamp does not power up the K5 Pro so it is the probably the K5 Pro itself that is broken.
Dear friend,

Sorry to hear about that. According to the phenomenon you metioned, I am afraid that it may be a hardware issue with the K5Pro as well. You could try to contact the seller for help first. If the seller fails to help, please contact support@fiio.com with the receipt attached.

Best regards

That power supply looks great and all but that price tag is almost as much as the K5pro itself. I would be all over it if it was about half that. It does looks great though. Honestly though I don’t know how cleaner they sound of the K5pro can’t get though, that thing is dead silent.

These Desktop amps/DACs seem to do it all well, very interested! Just wondering about the line in input for some retro game sources.

Does the analogue line in input on the K9/K5 Pro ESS go through digitization and then back to analogue for the phones output, like other amps do? If so is there any delay due to the sampling rate used for the conversion?
Or rather is line in to phones out a straight analogue path?

Dear friend,

If you are using line in and headphone out in K5Pro, it will not go through the digital module. The K5Pro is working as amplifier at that time.

@FiiO what’s the optical max data throughput for data

32/192 or 24/192 kHz

Or is it less than this and only on usb input only ?

Thank you
According to Fiio specs:

768kHz-32bit/DSD512(USB DAC)
192kHz-24bit(COAX)
96KHz-24bit(OPT)

thank you for the information much appreciated

A couple more to you @ahmonge

I notice you have Qobuz does the optical input allow for full lossless as i am potentially going to hook a wiim mini which allows Quboz and Amazon Music ultra hd bit rate files.

Also if i have Sundara was thinking of Edition XS or Ananda
I listen to lots of different music genres but mainly rock, Progressive etc.
Would you recommend the Ananda for that genre of music thank you

I only use the optical input to connect the TV, Qobuz I listen to it from the PC or mobile phone via USB. Because of the 96 kHz limitation of the optical input, you will not be able to listen to Qobuz tracks encoded at 192 kHz.

Ananda is an improvement over Sundara in the timbre of acoustic instruments in classical music, especially strings; for that reason I chose these headphones over the Sundara, as that is the genre I listen to most, but I don't dislike them at all when listening to other styles of music, such as Jazz, classic rock, country or Americana, although the Ananda are a bit bright in the treble for these styles. If you can, give them a listen before deciding.
