    Thanks for the tip doctorjazz, the HE-400i is a bit out of my price range, around € 500 here in the Netherlands but might give it a try, or look for a bargain abroad.

    how does this compare to Sony walkmans, and Astell&kern competitors? Is this pioneer on their level above it or below them?

    Anyone can confirm if the Dignis case for Onkyo fits? Any issues with the side buttons placement? Thanks

    Has anyone tried using 512 GB micro SD cards with this player?

    I don't believe such a card exists yet, other than those cards that say 512gb on the label but are nothing like that capacity. I have used a Sandisk 400gb card with mine and can confirm that it works OK. I have no doubt that when proper 512gb cards are available the XDP-300R will support them.

    You are completely correct. That was my error. I was looking at a non-micro SD card when I posted. You answered what would have been my follow-up question though, which was whether or not 400 GB cards work. I am happy to hear they do. My current debate is between the XDP-300R, the ONKYO DP-X1A, and the iBasso DX-80. The primary reason that I was including the DX-80 is due to its allegedly unlimited storage as the microSDs gets larger. If the XDP-300R can handle the 400 GB cards though, I think that may be my answer. Thanks for the feedback!

    So I attempted to connect my 300r to my kenwood DDX8901 HU via bluetooth. This damn 300r WIll connect to the HU but it refuses to see the 300r as a music player. THe kenwood will see my cell phone as a player. Whats odd is the 300r and the kenwood pair and connect, but I cannot play music. I also tried to connect the 300r via usb to my Kenwood.....the 300r will charge but it will not output music to the Kenwood.
    I then decided to try to connect the 300r to my 2016 car stock radio.......bluetooth works like charm. New car sees the 300r as a music player unlike my aftermarket Kenwood. So the kenwood works with everything else except the 300r. What pisses me off is all my highend stereo equipment is in the car with the kenwood.

    I also tried usb to 300r in my new car, only bluetooth and aux work. Damn it man

    My car, 2017 Honda Accord, won't connect to the Pioneer with Bluetooth or USB, can't use it in the car at all. It connects fine to my DeepBlue2 at home. Tics me off as well...

    THe blame might fall on the Bluetooth protocol for not being compatible with all bluetooth, including backwards compatibility.
     
  12. doctorjazz
    Since they got rid of the aux, and Bluetooth and usb are the only car connections, can't use it in the car. Sucks (for whatever reason).

    I do have some questions regarding this dap...

    Did the jacks really improved in this model?
    Does this support any sort of quick charging?
    Would there be a significant difference if I am only using IEMs and went with the 30r instead?
     
  14. SteveOliver
    1. No, the headphone sockets are still its weak point.
    2. No quick charge as such but it charges quickly from a 2A USB socket.
    3. Probably not much difference no.

    Price-features ratio it's still a great DAP though, in my opinion.
     
  15. doctorjazz
    I haven't had any jack/socket problems, but I could be the minority, hard to know.
    I find it charges up very quickly (and drains really quickly as well, often I can't predict or figure why it has drained)
