    i think the q1 mk II its a great match for the m40x, go for it.

    i also have Isines it's Isine 10 i was considering getting Q1 MkII and a balanced cable but now i`m not sure if i should stick with it

    Can the Fiio Q1 mark II be used as dac/amp for Sony Nw-A35 through WM-port?
    I read on the Fiio website that will be made a new dedicated cable, any info?

    I agree in se mode the sound would not be worthy of an upgrade. But in balance I thought the sound quality difference was significant. However others have noted when volume matched they could not tell a difference between se and balance. And I find that difficult to agree. Furthermore the sample unit supposedly has difference in the circuit implementation. Luckily if you are in the US you can try it out via Amazon with out much hassle.

    Thanks HBB! I wonder if it'll work with my HTC M9.

    My battery drain is massive.
    Any order of connection to remedy that?

    I've noticed the same, my only thought is to try a 'Y-cable' and use a power brick but the portability factor is going to decrease :frowning2:

    For me charging took unusually long compared to my walnut which charges fast. Basically while charging the led light stays red and when finished the red led goes out. And I did not notice power drain to be anything out of the ordinary, mind you I don't have a balance bass monster earphone nor headphones.

    I know there are adapters that split out micro usb and usb, but I caution to get adapters with data or sync in tact as some charge adapters only wire the power line. On that note, some data supported switchable usb hubs are not rated to support power and reduces the current. I think the really cheap ones do that.

    So... basically, no one makes a DAC/AMP combo that works with flawlessly with Android, without massive workarounds, and inevitably battery drain?

    I’ll come back in another 10 years and see if we’ve advanced technologically.

    I think XMOS knows how to do android. I took a peak inside the amp and it looks pretty. My android tv box worked flawlessly on saturday.

    It's not that they can't make the DAC/AMPs work with Android, it's all the proprietary crap companies layer on top of Android. I have four different Android devices at home, and they all handle Host Mode differently. You essentially have a different version of Android for each device family. Programming for all of them, or even large groups of them, then supporting all those versions afterwards would be a nightmare.

    I really wish more device manufacturers would just offer stock Android.

    Ok that makes sense... that is the issue with the Android phones - the bloatware. (Except for the new Nokia -- stock Android).

    Two questions:

    1) Anyone got the FiiO Q1MKII working with a Samsung Galaxy S8+ ?
    2) Is there any way to stop the phone charging the DAC/AMP?

    It is basically incredible since Android is open source lol
