    Blurry for me, too. Other than that, fairly easy to hook up to my "aging" 6+ running iOS 11.0.3, and the HiBy Link, and enjoy of course.

    Thank you @Shanling!

    I am trying to pair some of my bluetooth devices to my m3s.

    So far i can connect android phone and noble BTS, however when it comes to my sennheiser PXC 550 the M3s says its connection failed.

    Anyone have simliar trouble in connecting their bluetooth headsets?

    @Shanling has confirmed in the M2s thread that there are issues connecting to Sennheiser's BT.

    Do M3s have 2.5mm BL line-out function? I heard from someone said M3s can be used as 2.5mm BL line-out via Settings..

    When using HibyLink is album art supposed to show up in Album view? I can only see the art once playing a specific song and going to the song actually being played. Otherwise it works really well and is quite fast.

    It's not listed in their supported formats, but is the Opus codec able to be played on the M3s? Anyone willing to test?

    Yes of course, I like testing codec's I've never heard of before :), no it doesn't see the opus file type, I tried renaming the file to mp3 to trick the m3s and got a "file not supported error, JRiver media center 23 plays it though.

    What do you mean? 2.5mm and BT after completely separate outputs. You can't get balanced output over BT that I'm aware of...

    I think he's asking if the Balanced output can be used as Line-Out, not just Headphone-Out. For use with balanced amps, I assume.

    Hahaha! That's what I get for trying to answer a question when walking home from the pub :laughing:

    BTW, I'm walking home from the pub after a glass each of delicious Belgian-style Triple and Imperial Stout. Yum!

    Yes, totally off-topic but helps explain why I misread BL as BT :wink:

    I was lucky enough to get in on the Westvleteren sale a few years ago. While I don't think it's the best beer ever, it was pretty darn good. If you want to replicate, try 50/50 Rochefort 10 + Saint Bernardus 12. Tastes nearly identical to the Westvleteren!

    Dang i quit a couple back. Back then this and a hearty dark stout was the poison. I just reply on green fairies these days :wink:
