    Has anyone paired this and QP1R with the original Sennheiser IE 800? If you have, how was the sound?

    I don't think the QP2R was the commercial success its predecessor was. Just look at the number of reviews online, compared to other 1k DAPs.

    Perhaps the battery issue with the QP1R and Questyle taking a year to release the firmware fix, that didn't work for everyone, left a bad taste in existing customers mouths and sales never achieved what they could have done.

    Darren I'm glad people like you are noticing. I've been lamenting the obviously poor marketing strategy of this company for a while now even though I still like the 1R. They should have relaxed and fixed the 1R issues gain a faithful following and then encourage them on a journey into 2R. But they didn't. Rather they thought they held all the cards so they could force people on to 2R by ignoring 1R. That's a dumb decision. What they don't realise is that more people will stretch their budget to get themselves a player at this price point whereas the ones that comfortably buy have other options and very likely have other high end DAPs in their collection. So that strategy will anger the ones that stretch their budgets(likely to be a lot of people) and the comfortable ones will avoid any other products. I hope they learn their lesson and read this thread!

    They won't read this or the QP1R thread. If I could be arsed, I'd look to see when the UK or USA distributors last posted. To my knowledge, Questyle never has. They should look at FiiO and iBasso's involvement on this forum and take note. Mind you, FiiO posts here mainly to answer queries on why their latest firmware has introduced so many bugs, but that's another story. lol.

    I've sold my QP2R because the volume output was very low on the SE (3.5mm) output. Set to high gain the volume was the same as my QP1R with the 1.0.8 firmware on mid gain. The 1.0.9 firmware lowered the volume by about 20%. Moedawg140, who started the QP1R thread agrees with me and has informed Questyle. Guess what? He told me even he received no response. Laughable.

    I've got my QP1R on here for £295 if you are interested!

    AdvancedMP3Players.co.uk have emailed me in reply to my question regarding their frequent discount offers on the QP2R. The answer is that they are dropping all Questyle products when current stocks are exhausted.

    This must surely mean low sales of all Questyle products. Why would they want to stop stocking Questyle if they were selling lots of units?

    Audiosanctury might be doing the same, as they are discounting the QP2R by 17%. https://www.audiosanctuary.co.uk/questyle-qp2r-portable-player.html

    Is there a file limit for this DAP? I'm thinking about getting a 400GB memory card so I could fit about 13000 ALAC-files on it.

    I have a 400GB card with around that number of FLAC files in mine, works perfectly.

    Thanks for your replys! I just ordered a Sandisk 400GB Ultra memory card since it was only 73€ euros on Amazon.de.

    I have been using a 400GB Sandisk on my QP2R and never have encountered a problem. Later this year (Black Friday) I might get a 512GB or the 1TB card if the price is right.

    I recently bought a QP1R on sale/deep discount from a local retailer. It struggle to play DSD128 files from a 256GB card and up. It stutters during transitions between 2 files while playing. But there is a solution. The Card must be formatted using the SD Card Formatter app/tool. This is to optimize the card's file system which fixed the stutters.
