    you can check you can check on eBay or Amazon I'm not sure if in the UK they sell it on Amazon. But yes it works just fine on Linux.

    Is D30 Mac friendly for native DSD playback? Is yes, what player is best?

    Recently, The cs4398 overheated and eventually died. Do you have the same experience? Once the cs4398 has been replaced, it is normal. I am worried that the same phenomenon will happen again.

    You cannot link local pictures from your computer. Upload them somewhere even if it's to this forum.

    I watch Soccer, WRC, F1 etc on my laptop with USB to the D30, and it sounds great. No voice issues at all.
    Movies as well and never noticed a voice issue.
    Jazz and Blues vocals are fine as well. Plenty of volume, well balanced.

    Yes it's interesting because the issue actually went away for me.
    I'm not sure what causes it, but I haven't experienced it again.
    Although in the last 2 months I've been listening to my DX7 exclusively.

    How did it overheat?

    I've left mine on for over a week at a time, sometimes even constantly playing something and I've had no problems.

    Yeah, mine is on all the time as well. Never had a issue since I got it, I must have had it turned off maybe 4-5 times in about 4 months or so.

    Yea I imagine it has to be sandwiched in a hot area in order to have issues at all.
    Mine is on top of the A30 and under an O2Amp and like I said I've never had an issue.

    D30 is used is 5-7 times, and the total usage time is less than 10 hours.
    By the way, on D30, case warmed and no sound came out. I opened the inside of it.
    As a result, CS4398 was heating at a significantly higher temperature. In the end, CS4398ZZ died

    Sounds like it was just a defective CS4398
