    I usually use iPhone loaded with 256kbps aac & 320 kbps MP3 and it sounds nice and boomy via Bluetooth.

    There is no way to find out if Q5 supports Flac but I’m for sure it reconverts it’s to low quality. The perks of high res audio!

    It was around the 2015 model year the Audi updated the MMI and added support for FLAC. The best way to tell is if your MMI has LTE then you have FLAC support.

    If you look in the manual in the MMI section under media you will see FLAC as a supported media type and 24/48 resolution. I have successfully feed it 24/192 and played it back but I don't know if it downsampled it to 24/48 or not. To save space I down sample anything greater than 24/96.

    When listening to hi-res or even redbook FLAC tracks using my 1A or 1Z via bluetooth is a huge improvement over 320 Kbps MP3's on my A7 with Blose that doesn't have FLAC support.

    I think I am beginning to note slight battery degradation. As it last slight less

    Could meant That your battery has had 7k of hours running from it ...so it slightly degraded

    I have a wm1a and that portable oriolus tube amp. Do I connect out of the 4.4 on the wm1a or through the charging socket at the bottom of the wm1a?

    You use the supplied 4.4mm cable and connect one end to the DAP and one end to the 4.4mm input of the amp. If you have the newer version with grounding cable, you connect both the 3.5mm and 4.4mm connectors to the DAP (3.5mm first), which is supposed to act as a ground for the 4.4mm out and reduce noise. I actually had the Oriolus paired with my ZX300, but sadly, decided to return it because I was experiencing noticeable low level hissing with the amp that I simply couldn't live with. I had the version with grounding cable too! I am curious to hear your impressions, as I wonder if I received a bad unit.

    Charging jack is a digital out only. You can use it plugged into a dac/amp, but otherwise 4.4mm if amp has balanced inputs, or 3.5 if not.

    i need a reminder about the pics thing

    i have to rename the pic inside the folder as the title of the folder , in order for it to appear on my wm1a screen ?

    also , the pics from amazon are baseline by default so i am fine picking those up ?
     
  12. nc8000 Contributor
    Yes the jpg has to be named the same as the name of the folder it resides in.

    I have no idea if Amazon pictures are always baseline but mostly that seems to be the case

    Yes, if you are not embedding the artwork in the file tag, you can place the .jpg inside the folder and have it show up on the DAP if it is named the same name as the host folder. This is especially useful for .wav files, which does not work on the Sony with embedded artwork.

    And for baseline artwork files, I grab them from the following database, which has worked 100% of the time for me:

    Anyone know if the wm1z has more power vs wm1a ? Whats the best dap for dac use and has a 4.4mm jack
     
  15. nc8000 Contributor
    Same power as far as I know. The best dac dap is the one with the sound you like best
