I have mine connected via a 5 meter USB cable to my

Mutec MC3+USB re-clocker

And via a 110 ohm AES cable I feed the output of the Mutec into my

Grace Design m903 Reference D/A Headphone amplifier

I will post some front panel display photos to try to figure out what sample rates are going on...

So here are some photos.

seems like the Mutec is seeing 96k from the HiBy playing Amazon Music HD.

as I change albums the sample rate display on the Mutec doesn’t reset or change it always shows 96k on its USB (B) input.

After the Mutec I have a TC Finalizer 96K+ inserted via AES before the Grace. I am adding a lick of hf eq for my old ears on the Finalizer and adding some tube-ish warmth via its “digital Radience generator”. It sounds best if I clock the Finalizer “external DI” (from the Mutec)

Michael McDonald sounding smooth! Might have to switch it to some metal next!

Those U12t look sweet! Have you compared them to JH's IEM's? I'm thinking of picking up a custom pair and I'm struggling with the decision. Music: female vocals, classical, guitar, blues...
Haven't heard any JH IEMs but U12t is sweet indeed. It'll nail all those genres - I mainly listen to female vocal and instrumental myself. Maybe start with the universal and if you love it, get a custom as your endgame.

Hi,

i am having a problem trying to connect my Hiby R6 Pro to an Audio GD NFB 1.38 DAC via USB. The problem is when I try to connect the player with the USB cable to the DAC: it can't recognize the USB connection and I don't get the various options (file transfer, USB out…) like when I connect it to the PC. I have already tried with two different cable (one with OTG adaptor and another directly USB C to USB Type B).

Is there any option to select to make it work or do you have any advice to help me solve the problem?

Thanks very much.

Best regards,
Elia

Any sign of MQA support on this DAP yet?

Is that the Mutec box that has the SCMS killer? I've been meaning to buy one.

Yes, coming soon.

Thanks this is good news. I needed a DAP since I was flying often but now I guess we're all grounded until "the situation" improves.
