    I think it's the failure of Hidizs. Amazon did send a replacement immediately. They have always been the gold standard in customer service.

    I received the Hiby R3 two days after placing the order. The screen protectors (front and back) have already been installed at the factory. The R3 is a great DAP.

    Agreed, the failure was on Hidizs. Amazon has always stood behind stuff I bought.

    I checked it on the KSC75X and several some of the already discounted items yesterday, and it didn't work. But...thanks for posting that link. It extended the deadline by three days:). Hmm, I wonder if I can use both of them?

    Thanks...just used on the HD-58X...$140 w/free shipping! :)

    FWIW...it would've worked on their 'Prime' deals...for the Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs it knocked the price down to $147 (usually $250)

    There is a sale going on Aliexpress for another 10 hours (till midnight PST).

    You can get a free "2$ off 15$" coupon here: https://sale.aliexpress.com/__pc/top100must-haves201907.htm
    Pro 82 is now for sale for 59.5$ (instead of 62.5$), and with this coupon you can take it down to 57.5$ - for a guaranteed v2.

    There is also a "6$ off 69$" coupon you can get in the app in exchange for 1000 coins:

    You can use it to lower price of SMSL Idea (before it disappears off the shelves) or SMSL IQ.

    SMSL IQ is on a CRAZY sale right now - 103.5$ instead of 140$: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32847472836.html
    Plus the store has a "9$ off 80$" coupon, so together with the "6$ off 69$" Ali coupon the price is down to ... 88.5$ !!!!

    You can get the IQ for the price of Idea!
    IQ has a crystal clear sound, similar to Oppo HA-2SE's Line Out, plus it has a balanced output!
    I often use it as a DAC for my electrostats.

    The discount offer I got a few days ago is the "Welcome to Drop" promotion, and it didn't work on those Prime items. I clicked through the link above, and the discount offer I have now is the "YT Drop Studio Gift" promotion, and it works on the Prime Items.

    Reminiscence just a year ago in this thread, people were posting "deals" on the Sandisk 400gb for around $140+
    How fast the price for these cards drop in time, recently going for only $45 compared to $140-180 just a year ago lol

    How is the IQ as a value proposition vs the Radstone ES100 that has been posted here in $80 range?

    It's like the Moore's Law of SD Card pricing. I probably could have put off the 2x400GB cards I bought ~80 not so long ago seeing as I haven't even used them yet :sweat_smile:

    A good DEALS lesson though: Never buy an SD card until right before you actually need it. (Though you never know if they go the way of RAM and the price doubles).

    That will probably take a few more years I think lol

    Well I just bought 2x400gb yesterday although I have no use for them at the moment too! Not sure if i'll even unseal them, hope they will be in working condition a year later if I decided to use them then lol
