PCM, as I’ve already mentioned, works.
But PCM is not the same as DoP.
Moreover, it works only with 192kHz max, which forces to use DSD64/41 or DSD64/48 and downscale anything else, so there is no actual quality gain
X7MKII does not support DSD decoding when using as USB DAC. (So native or DOP mode would not work for DSD file)

Best regards

I got rid of Fiio X7 mark ii. Of course it is a great sounding device (one of the best if not the best, including in comparison ifi idsd micro, chord mojo, a&k junior) but the ultra slow firmware and the battery draining in standby mode made it a nightmare. It should have better support...

Qobuz on X7ii still possible?
I am trying to install Qobuz on my X7ii. Qobuz is not even offered in the Playstore any more. Might be because of Android 5.1.1.
Since there existed Qobuz versions for Android 5, I sideloaded two older ones.
Both versions have the same problem: Playing in 44.1khz works, but highres 96khz is badly destorted.
Do I have to give up, or is there a solution.
OTA fw update says I have the newest version installed.
Thanks for any hint!

I would suggest UAPP which works well on the X7II with both Tidal and Qobuz with high-res support. Yes, the older Android version is becoming a problem for this DAP.

Great! Yes that works!

For everybody wants to use Qobuz in the original App: In the App settings, you can set a general reduction to "CD quality". Reduced quality, but fluently working.

Hey all, just scrolled through the last bunch of pages looking for this topic but had no joy. I'm not finding Tidal on the google play store on my mkii. If I look at my app history on my google account I can see it, but it says that it's not compatible with the device.

Do I need to sideload this, or am I missing something? On a side note, has anyone tried usb audio player pro app with the x7m2? Worth it?

Sideload version 2.31. It was the last version to support Android 5. UAPP works perfectly with X7II including high-res support, Tidal and Qobuz. Well worth it IMO.
