    Hi guys,
    I have some problems. Probably problems have already been processed but cannot read 585 pages, I apologies for that.
    First of all I'm charging my unit for a lot of hours but blue led is still on...how long it takes, usually, for a full charge?
    Second question: I tried to play differents format like DST 64, 128, 256 / FLAC 44Khz, 96, 352 but led color is always blue. Shouldn't I have seen different colors? Is there something that doesn't work? Or am I wrong about something? Or should I change something in the players' settings? I use Foobar, AIMP from pc and Foobar, HiByMusic from android smartphone. The current firmware is 5.3. Thanks for your help.

    Let's start by asking which product of ours you use.

    If I need just amplifier section of idsd micro bl, is this the only way; idsd (3.5mm) to a dac (rca cable)?

    The RCA input of the ifi BL sounds pretty bad and is overloaded very easily, it is meant to be used with an ipod or similar.

    Don't get the BL if you aren't going to use it as a dac/amp combo... just don't.

    I already have idsd micro black since the beginning. The only thing I'd like to know is how to pair it with a single end dac. I haven't done it yet before that's why I ask. Thanks.

    You can try it but my experience was poor. Dac/amp = great, but as amp via input = poor sounding when you feed it 2V from a DAC. And nearly all DACs output 2V or even more...

    OK. The site says "Only use sub version 5.2A on the micro iDAC2, nano iDSD, iDSD LE, iDSD BL, iOne and xDSD." Does that mean that the last supported firmware version for the iDSD micro BL is
    ‘Limoncello’ 5.2a & 5.2b (sub- versions)?

    It's a big battery. It can take a long time. Just keep charging.

    Sounds like you might have firmware 5.3C there. If you want bit-perfect operation, install firmware 5.2.

    Go here for firmware: https://ifi-audio.com/downloads/

    LOL. Actually I've been off grid in a field in Cornwall for the last week but I'm re-attached to the matrix now and catching up.

    Thanks so to what does that sub 5.2 refer then? Sorry I just don’t want to “brick” this (hah).
