    Not even a single response from Onkyo service centers in Europe when asked where to obtain a replacement battery.

    That's right. This is a disposable device that can become useless once your battery dies.

    I bought a brand new soldering kit and I'll try to get this fixed tomorrow. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

    Very disappointing all around - as I am going through the same issue right now. I have sent away for the battery, and I'm taking it to a friend's shop who does really skilled soldering work, but Pioneer/Onkyo has definitely lost my trust.

    ....in the meantime, I bought myself a FiiO M11. VERY different in so many ways from the Onkyo/Pioneer...and not as user friendly for sure, but the sound - wow, it's blowing me out of the water. Sitting here in audio bliss right now.

    All of the DAP manufacturers should implement replaceable batteries. I wonder why they're not doing this.

    Built in obsolescence. Once a unit dies what do the companies want? Someone to buy say a $100 battery, or a new $$$$ player? Beside which this question always make me laugh on headfi. I can't imagine many headfiers using one mp3 player until the battery dies in the first place!

    My DP-S10 is about a year old. But this unit was kept in a box through the whole year so that killed its lithium battery..

    Hi all!

    I have two questions regarding this DAP.

    - Is that possible to use the phisical buttons to control the volumen? The wheel is not responding in my device, I have to use the app from the cellphone :triportsad:
    - As I Know this device works with the twin dacs only thru the balanced output 2.5, When you use the line out 3.5 as to a normal amp (JDS o2 in my case) I can imagine you are only using one dac, so If I find a balanced cable 2.5 to 3.5 with a balanced amp I will use the twin dacs? Or this effort is not whorty

    Thanks in advance!

    So you find the M11 above in SQ terms of the xdp-30r and xdp-300r?

    Hi Miguel,

    I find the sound quality absolutely stellar...in my opinion it is definitely a step (or two) above the XDP-30r. I can't comment on the XDP-300r, because I've never used it - but I have seen other postings that recommened the M11 as a replacement or upgrade from it.

    Thanks! The xdp-30r using balanced outpt right?

  12. MichaelOH
    Hey Miguel,

    No - not using the balanced output - just the standard.

    You have to use the balanced output just to use the twin dac capacity of the 30r and the amplification is much better. , It happens also with the wm1a, using the Single end you are missing the potential of the device as I know.

  14. MichaelOH
    Well, sort of a moot point considering that my device is dead - and also, I don't own a pair of balanced phones.
  15. miguel.yarce
    Sorry I didnt know about your issue? Its regarding the battery right?
