The icons are there, just very faint and super hard to see...
This reminds me of a similar problem I had with my Cayin N3. The pixels on mine would become distorted (extremely dark) to where you can't see anything, when I hit the power button on after being in power sleep mode but hitting it again would remove it. I only had that problem occasionally. In my situation that problem probably occurred to me accidentally dropping it a few times though. I think yours could be hardware related though.

Just received my player, I should be super happy but I am not. My screen is not working properly. Most of the times I can't see anything if it's gray like the picture from 10.17pm.
Are you seeing the lower FiiO icon at all? Have you tried changing the screen color for comparison?

In the Fiio music app it shows up just fine, doesn't show on Tidal as far as I know.
Just made a video where you can see the screen having the issue. It is a hardware problem.

Sorry if this has been answered, I couldn't find it. Will the M9 be able to receive bluetooth codecs other than sbc? I know it can transmit a bunch of codecs, but I am hoping to be able to use it as an LDAC or AptX receiver on occasion.

That would be possible with future FW updates.

Do you know if Fiio has stated any plans to add more codecs in future updates? Although the hardware is capable, there may be licensing issues. For AptX I'm pretty sure "receiver" is a different license than transmitter, incurring additional cost to the manufacturer. At least that's what Cayin told me I asked them this same question about the N3. LDAC I'm not sure, seems like sony recently changed their licensing policies considering LDAC is now standard with Android 8.0.

You are perhaps right about aptx.. I also reckon LDAC requires one licence for both now?

Would you raccomand the M9 to replace my FiiO X5 2nd gen ? I care mostly about sound quality, extra features like wifi , bluetooth and so on are nice but not so important.

I've found the sound to be superior to the X5 II.

Guys, How would the M9 compare to the Pioneer XDP-30R? I ordered the Pioneer for $139 on a whim but was really looking at M7 or M9?

thx

bob
