    Which digital output are you referring to--coax or usb?
  2. jj69
    Now that you mention it, I only tried with the USB to coax adapter so far. Does it work via USB?
  3. Joe Bloggs Contributor
    I'll have to check but the controls enabled / disabled does differ a bit between coax and usb if I recall correctly.
  4. jj69
    I just tried connecting to my Audio gd DAC via USB and I had the same result. Balance is greyed out and nonworking.

    It would be great to have a useable balance control in both USB and coax mode!

    Updated to 3.2 last night and now bluetooth connection no longer works at all.

    All I get is: Playback failed Error -13

    Is this a known issue?

    What's the solution? Rollback?
  8. mikp
    yes, only option now.

    A playlist option containing recently added tracks has finally been added in the new update. Yes, yes, YES!

    All that's missing now is the ability to search for specific songs in the playlist/favorites menus! Right now, searching for a specific song in those categories is almost impossible because neither are alphabetized and there's no search option (the alphabet list located on the right side) like the one found in the all songs menu.

    Please make it happen!

    I use the R3 99% as digital source for the Mojo and the most important feature is unmanipulated, bit perfect output.
    So it’s imperative to have the option that the DSP can be bypassed.

    Please consider that use case in any decision about future upgrade

    Agreed. Option to bypass also means option to apply as well:wink:

    Updating the firmware that supposedly gives the option of recently added to the database I realized my one issue with the R3 and I’m sure it’s true with other similar players, in that if you add one album and you have a good size database you have to wait thru a total SD card scan
  14. Squonk12
    Is this update not available via OTA yet? My R3 says it's current. ?
  15. dissembled
    I updated the latest custom firmware via SD card, so I’m not certain myself.


    One negative thing about the recently added playlist is that sometimes it loads up the songs so slowly. All I see is the rotating icon for about a minute (or slightly less), so I do wish this would be rectified with a future update.
