    It's a soft sound, it's the amp engaging and disengaging. Not a crackle.

    Ok so I was curious about Tidal since spotify and amazon music are so snappy on r5. I got the free trial (been a while) set steaming to master and messed with it. - I also put it on my galaxy 10e with 8 gig of ram and the snapdragon 855, well lo and behold they were both identical in speed.

    I can't record my phone, but the switching of album covers and speed of menus switching is identical. On both no other programs were running. Here is a vid of the r5 with tidal, please excuse the crappy quality and the middle part where it looks like the play/pause button is not responding is me missing the hit box. - I'm right handed.

    Yea, after the initial startup and letting everything get setup up, the player has been rock solid and fast.

    Also there was a firmware update available today. Bug fixes, increased screen response, cutoff filters added, and some Japanese certification. 1.13G

    I have not found Tidal to lag either using it's own app or through UAPP. Fact is, Tidal, Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn all run normally for me with no noticeable lag. I do not, however, have a lot of apps running at the same time.

    Update went flawlessly. Took about 4 minutes. Over-air updates are the greatest thing since sliced bread!

    aptX/aptxHD supported? I did not find information on these protocols on the official site

    AptX is supported as it shows when playing my Bluetooth IEM's. Don't think AptX-HD is though.

    still struggling to get this or dx160

    snapdragon chip and play store are big plus but i ve read few reviews saying dx160 sq in especially 4.4mm out is better and it looks less like a zx300...
  10. sensenonno
    may be i should wait for m6 and zx500 , then decide..
  11. davidcotton
    I'd imagine a Lurker mod will be available for the dx160 adding playstore at some point, though of course that isn't a given.
  12. abitdeef
    Lol ibasso ALWAYS sounds better- heavy sarcasm there. :wink: good luck with that RC soc. And zx500 isn't close in price.

    It’s only if you have your headphones plugged in whilst booting up, if not no sound :)

    Hmm maybe I got a defective unit ? I’ll record what I mean by lag and put it up in a few mins
  15. abitdeef
    Yep something is going on, mine runs just like my phone. The only lag on mine is me fumbling with my off hand to hit the correct points. I was just curious, I'm not big on tidal.

    Also I haven't messed with any GP settings or system settings.
