    Yes it is the same one. Yes according to Wikpedia he only made one appearance as sub. Keegan signed him .-)

    Hello, I make a query. Do you have any idea if there are longer cables or some way to use long cables and that you do not consume battery in Android?
  5. Steve Guppy
    I primarily use my Q1ii for mobile use. Not sure why you'd want a longer cable for phone use, but maybe another member can help you out here?

    Recently purchased q1 mkii, and an OTG cable USB-C to Micro USB for use with my Note 8.

    Sounds amazing! Paired with 6XX and a balanced cable, I've shown three friends and they were all floored.

    My question is, how do I know it's correctly set up and not using my Note's DAC or AMP. I'm pretty positive it is bypassing the note8 DAC, as the output is going through USB, but I just want to make sure it's not double-amping both mkii and note8.

    The volume control on my phone still controls the volume output, is this OK? What volume am I supposed to set it at if this is the case.

    I also downloaded a test DSD track that's around 1.8gb but while playing through poweramp the DSD light on my mkii does not turn on, do only certain apps fully utilize the DSD quality format?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Which cable are you using? Is the Q1ii showing a red light when not in use or a violet one when it is?
    It will be bypassing the DAC of your phone, the volume of the phone just adjusts the volume of the signal, so to get the most out of your Q1ii, I'd set the phone volume to max. That's what I do. Fell free to ask any other questions

    Great thanks, wasn't sure about that volume control.

    I only see a red light while charging and it's not plugged into my phone. While in use, even if no music is playing, I see the blue/violet light.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention I'm using the Fiio CL06 OTG cable.

    The light should definitely only be blue, not violet. Try plugging the DAC into your phone, but with it switched off (the DAC not the phone.. Lol) and see if a red light comes on. If it does, it's being charged by the phone, which will drain the battery far quicker..

    Oh, my bad, I thought you were categorizing blue/violet into one color. Never seen a violet! Just blue. I'm very certain it's not charging the phone as the cable does not allow. thanks

    Perfect . I was just asking coz I've bought cables which were labeled "OTG" from both Amazon and eBay, and they both charged the DAC. The ebay one even said it wouldn't, and was recommended on here, but it was bs! It charged....:frowning2:

    That's my winning combination, too!

    I finally got my Cl06 USB-C to micro cable and it works great with the Q1 Mark 2. It works with the older Q1 as well.
