    Reference quality sound. It has high levels of detail and clarity and does not color.

    I am so close to ordering this after doing my research for a while. This thread has been incredibly helpful! Just a few last questions before I pull the trigger on this: 1. This only supports up to DSD128, am I correct? A few of my favorite albums are in DSD256 so I am hoping it can decode these as well and 2. Can anybody confirm that it will work with a 512GB SD card (or even higher)? Thanks guys!

    Hi friends! I have two questions before deciding on the QLS QA361:
    1.- Can you play the songs randomly?
    2.- Have you used the firmware provided by QLS? are important?
  4. NehPets
    Yes, you can play songs randomly; the playback options are Loop, Random, Once, Invert and One, and these can be applied to either the current Folder or All folders.

    I've got copies of all 5 firmware versions on my microSD card. Versions 1.4.4, 1.4.5 & 1.4.8 are universal, while 1.0.4 & 1.0.5 are WAV-only. While I'm in the process of converting my .aiff files to .wav format, I've been using both 1.4.4 and 1.0.4. The WAV-only firmware is more streamlined, and it allows you to use the 'turn everything up to eleven' (Large current + High voltage) mode, which I don't currently need, but it's nice to know it's there if I ever do. Personally, I don't hear a significant difference between the firmware versions, but that's not to say you wouldn't.

    Anyone using the All to DSD filter on their QA361? Do you experience a crackling 'static' noise during the silence between tracks?
  6. Cat Music
    Thank you! I will definitely decide on the QA361!

    Hi every one,
    I am new in this forum, I will be most greatful to have the feed back of someone who could compare this DAP with the famous Dethonray Prelude DTR1.
    Thanks in advance for these precious informations.

    Hi again !

    Anyone could compare this DAP with a DTR1 and/or a Calyx M ?

    Thanks in adavance for your precious informations .

    Did anyone try this with a 600 ohms headphone? I have been narrowing down to two options, this and the Dethonray DTR1 in my search for a simple UI, no bells and whistles DAP. Still have a lot of questions about drivability. To what extent can it rival a desktop setup? Many thanks!

    I love the QA361. It drives anything I have with authority. Simple UI, comes with an adapter to use 2.5mm in the 3.5 balanced port. No frills, just music. I don't use a desktop setup.
