Thanks for responding, much appreciated.

Dear friend,

Since some user update the firmware for K9Pro AKM to their K9Pro ESS, we have remove the firmware download link for K9Pro AKM currently.
The Power button/Multi-function button in the front panel could not turn off the K9Pro/K9Pro ESS.

Honestly, I would imagine the risk of that happening is much greater with different links to Google Drive floating around the Internet shared between users than if you just had a normal download page with some warnings/information. The need/will to find/upgrade to the latest version won't go away just because you don't have a normal download page, people will just try alternative methods of solving the problem. Would be interesting to hear the opinion of others here as well.

Long press to standby, long press for 2 seconds to enter standby mode
Short press, the indicator light is off, in silent mode, all output ports of K9 pro stop outputting, at this time, the sound can be restored by rotating the volume knob.

Thanks. What is the reason for having some kind of "standby but not standby" mode? What would be the downside of having the the K9 work like almost every other electronic equipment with a power switch and a power button? I would honestly think that a lot more people than I just assumed the power button worked like power buttons normally do.

What about setting up a properly made support web site where the product is well specified or a simple database where the customer enters the serial number and as a result the site offers the correct firmware version?

Is it true that the filters in the app only work for BT playback mode?
Yes.

Edit: I assumed that by filters you meant the EQ function, which only affects the BT playback mode. The various dac filter options work for all sources. Sorry for posting wrong info.

This is disappointing and stops the K9 from becoming the main 'hub' of my entertainment system. Otherwise it is extremely good value for money and only a shade below TOTL all in one systems for both SQ and functionality.
Line in input and then Line Out output, this is only a straight-through function, without any processing of the music

If you want to achieve this function, in fact, there are many ways, such as adding an adapter or something, I think it is very easy.

@FiiO Willson (and others), are the stickers (for input, gain and so on to make them more legible) provided with every ESS distribution now, or does it vary? I've seen some unboxing videos on YouTube, and I can spot the stickers in only a few of them ...

Just want to make sure I get those stickers included with my purchase, as I think they look pretty good, haha.

Dear friend,

Yes, this sticker is included for K9Pro ESS. K9Pro(AKM) doesn't include this sticker.

Best regards

I managed to get my fiio to be detected :relieved:. What i have done is uninstall the USB dac driver v4.47.0 and install the new driver v5.30.0. So wierd that the K9 pro wasn't detected anymore
Dear friend,

It can be detected correctly now?

Best regards

Hello, yes it can be detect now :relieved: but it got me worried. How long will it last? :thinking: Maybe i should do a firmware upgrade? i currently have the vB.15 firmware
You got me worried for a moment I knew fiio devices are built to last my previous btr5 is still going on since last almost 4 years.
But good to know its just driver issue but why previous driver failed thats the question needs investigation.
