    Blue?
    When native DSD signal has been received, the DSD light up green. You may try our FiiO Music from Apple store for help.
    Best regards

    Yes it should be green. I fact I just experimented with one .dff album using the Onkyo HF Player app but the 1.7GB .dff album stutters with my iPhone 6S.

    I forgot that FiiO has an app which I shall download now to try. (Update: downloaded the FiiO app. The .dff songs stutter but .dsf seems fine so far. Green light is on)

    Sorry but no adapter can turn an unbalanced signal into a balanced one.

    To be balanced, the negative signal from each earpiece must be run separately but in a normal TRS 3.5mm they are coupled or joined at the plug as a common signal.

    To make them separate, and use with a balanced amp, you need to cut the plug off and rewire (sometimes as far back as the Y split), re-cable them from the earpieces or replace the cable if they are removable.

    Thanks for the clarification.. Noob here.
    The RHA T20 does not have a removable cable.

    Hello,

    Does this work with an iPod Classic 7th gen? If yes, how do I go about it?

    Thank you in advance everyone.

    Just for folks who are not members but reading this thread.

    There are 2 different LED lights. One next to the volume/gain dial and another small one. That small one only turns green and is only turned on when it is playing a DSD DSF file

    Hi Fiio, I recently bought the Q1 MKII and am disappointed that it cannot be detected by my Xiaomi Mi Max 2. Mi Max 2 seems to charge the Q1 instead, purple light on. I am using an OTG Micro USB to USB-C interconnect. I have also wrote in feedback to Xiaomi hoping a hotfix can resolve this issue.

    Try installing Sony's Song Pal app, and connect Q1 II (SWITCHED OFF) to your phone (SWITCHED ON AND SCREEN UNLOCKED), then launch the "Song Pal" app. Once connection is done, switch your Q1 II ON and wait for maybe 1 minute. A white box or maybe black will pop up asking whether you want to use this "something" as default sound output, select YES. If your phone does not respond, uninstall the Song Pal app and pray.

    For some of my android devices I had to restart the device with the Q1II attached to get it to route audio correct. If this prevents booting then unplug and quickly re-plug the device.

    Not ideal I know, but it only did this on one older device running a custom ROM. All my other devices it works as intended, plug in and then switch on the Q1II.

    Hi,
    The Q1II may work only an AMP if you have the 30pin to 3.5mm cable.
    Best regards

    Hi,
    We didn't advertise that Q1 MKII could work with android phones for considering those issue as well: http://www.fiio.me/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=42715
    You may still check whether you use a correct cable and try other APP to see if it helps.
    Best regards

    This is a very valid point bearing in mind this is a US$99 product. It is also not valid to then say that Fiio is, for want of a better word, ignoring the larger Android market.

    I for one am very happy it works with my iPhones. I look forward to it working with my Sony DAPs. Friends have tested with Cayin N3 faultlessly (though that charges the Q1MKII simultaneously leading to faster battery drain on the N3) as well as the Onkyo DP-S1.

    All in all, I for one say, congratulations to FiiO.

    Are there any comparisons of the Q1 Mark 2 with the Fiio A5?
     
  14. Slater
    I'd like to know as well.

    Obviously, only comparing the amp side of the Q1 mk2, because the A5 is an amp only.
     
  15. Ynot1
    Here is my guestimate:

    When comparing analog amp only A5 wins.
    When comparing best sound you can get I think Q1 MK II wins.

    Disclosure: I never heard the A5 before, but I know A5 could never do balance.
