    Device would be near perfect if it could handle input via Bluetooth streaming too

    Impact Audio Cables on Etsy has really nice sub - $100 cables. The cables are about $60 - $80. He had higher end cables too. He is taking a break from cable making over the Hollidays, but will be open again soon.

    Uh oh! The touring unit I received is suffering from this very same problem. It's not a big deal I don't own a single IEM so direct is more than sufficient!

    I also have to say, so far the unit sounds fantastic! But I'm not a huge fan of it's Log Pot, I get a 2dB jump going from like 50% rotation to 51-52%

    with a balanced cable resolve is like a smidge better though this is with an easy to drive headphone I'll chime in later with some more serious impressions. Thus far it's pretty impressive!

    Sweet! I’m excited to know your impressions. :)

    I just had mine made by a local cable maker for $40 since 3.5mm balanced cables are quite hard to come by pre-made where I come from.

    Maybe iFi should develop a “Pico” wireless module as the Poly is to the Mojo. :ksc75smile:

    I just picked this up today from a fellow headfi buddy and I'm trying to use my Onkyo DP-X1 for a transport and use some MQA, can the Nano import via a portable source or does it need to be desktop? Also, is there a gain switch?
  7. tim0chan
    No gain switch. I think that the LG g6 and v30 support mqa

    My onkyo supports MQA as well. When they are hooked up I don't see the magenta light unless I need to change a setting on my player.

    Maybe the player or maybe the firmwares

    I think ifi meant the two output jacks to serve as "gain switches". :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Where are you playing MQA from? The Tidal MQA App doesn't support MQA, so you need to find an MQA file, there are some samples on the Internet or you can purchase MQA albums from the Onkyo website and copy them to the SD card.

    You must then use the included Music App (I have the Pioneer but I assume its similar) to do the MQA unfold. Make sure your Nano is upgraded to the latest F/W connect it to the player and you should get the MQA light on the Nano.

    The Pioneer music app should indicate that it is playing an MQA file too.

    I bought some MQA files off the Onkyo site and saved them to my mSD. They show the MQA when playing on my onkyo and the little warning shows up about EQ. There must be a setting or like you said maybe the Nano needs updating.

    Sounds like you have everything setup right, it must be the Nano's F/W, the release version didn't support MQA. Update to the version from November and it should work, there are no settings to adjust as far as I know.

    I tried updating this today and all goes well tell I hit the "browse" button. like one step before the update is successful and it shows the incorrect path. I think it has to do with the old computers we have here. I do have my work laptop but it is blocked from any downloads and I need an Admin to complete. I sure they will not allow me as this is a 3k dollar laptop, so I will not even ask.

    Just got the review unit couple days ago. I would say that I'm liking what I hear so far, but need to really dig the sound this weekend. Will compare the unit with micro BL.
