    Any updates on getting album art to show up?

    Using FLAC files.


    Anyone know the output impedance of the MegaMini yet?

    Finding the Hifiman MegaMini a good match to the Campfire Audio Vega.

    Hey. I saw you wanted a comparison between the xduoo and megamini (which is coming in tomorrow). I'll let you know the difference.

    I know I'm late to the game, but my review for the Megamini was posted the other day!

    This is the official thread for Megamini? I'm also going to review one in the near future and I'm looking forward to it!

    I think that I'm starting to feel that poor button feedback somewhat, but it is not as bad for me as I understand it is for everbody.

    The hiss though... If you have an IEM that is sensitive to hiss, the hiss is there :triportsad:

    I do like the sonic signature of Megamini more than I thought I would though, pretty nice for a tricky little DAP

    Wondering if a second revision with a somewhat better buttons and with somewhat less hiss is possible

    new firmware available with exfat support and album art support and 256GB support

    Megamini Firmware Update
    HIFIMAN is pleased to announce a new firmware update 2017-07-27V006 for the MegaMini is now available.To download, please go to: http://down.hifiman.com/megamini/v006/hmmegafw.img

    What’s new:
    1. Both exFAT and FAT32 formats are now compatible with the updated firmware, making it easier to use with large capacity cards.
    2. As you no longer need to use FAT32 only, even for larger cards the need for the flayer to “Format SD” into FAT32 itself has been removed.
    3. A more snappy and optimized media library update.

    How to perform the firmware update:
    1. Connect the SD card to the PC/Mac; the card should be in FAT32 format. Please also make sure the player has a good amount of charge remaining before starting.
    2. Copy the downloaded file HMMINIFW.IMG to the root directory of the SD card. That means directly on to the card, not inside any folders. Do not change the name of the file.
    3. Insert the SD card into the player and reboot the player. You will be prompted “Firmware Upgrading. Please do not operate” on the screen. Please wait to proceed. This will take a few minutes and must not be interrupted. We suggest go make a cup of tea and it should be complete by the time you return.
    4. The player will reboot itself once the update is complete.
    5. The file HMMINIFW.IMG will have been deleted automatically after the upgrade is completed.
    6. You may now use your player as normal, leaving the card in FAT32 or you can reformat first to exFAT before filling with music.

    If you encounter any problem installing this firmware, please contact HIFIMAN customer service at customerservice@hifiman.com

    Please note: The MegaMini currently supports SD card up to 256GB. Compatible file formats are now exFAT and FAT32.

    Happy listening.

    I'm glad that they are still updating Megamini! Although it is a mini DAP, I quite like the signature!

    I should try to update the FW as soon as I get back home!

    Megamini is less than a year old. That they still update it should be the norm. Anyway, looking forward to it, though I didn't have trouble with its library update speed. Way speedier than a few of my DAPs.
