With the latest and previous FW update my AP60 as transport (via USB OTG) to the Xduoo XD05 have variable volume control ! Do you guys have the same issue ?
Umm this can be found for 75 bucks and free shipping from other well-known shopping sites, am I missing something extra with this drop or what?
if i didnt already own a macbook pro 15 retina i would totally hop on to buy this.
if i didnt already own a Sony ZX2 i would totally hop on to buy this. the specs look pretty good
I got this player, it's really really good. Lots of great features and good sound quality
Just got mine from the latest drop. Does the bluetooth not connect to Bluetooth headphones? I'm having trouble getting the device to connect to my bose qc35 and cheap jarv wireless earbuds

Did that reply make you feel like a big man?
I hope so ...

make sure your ap60 is in discover mode when you make your headphones discoverable.
Does the player has "Balance Output" ?
MidnighTempest
Nope
Does this have a *REAL* shuffle function? The Shanling M1 I got off Massdrop recently does not. Its idea of "shuffle" is to play all your tracks in a "random" order determined once and then recycled every time.
Wondering if there's a translation/cultural difference in the concept of "shuffle"

AIMP?

Software music player.
You have to use a micro sd right?
Any chance of you getting the Marvel versions in the near future? I'd rather wait for the Spider-Man edition if you might carry it sometime.
Does it come with any on-board memory at all? Or is it completely reliant on SD cards only?
Why get this when smartphones exist?

People get worried about the low-power radios in their phones, but seem to think that wireless charging over a distance is a viable thing. SMH.

Same reason people still buy DSLR cameras and 4K camcorders, better performance.
Those of us who have invested in higher end headphones/earphones appreciate the better audio performance from the dedicated high resolution DAC and more powerful AMPs.
Most people are satisfied with the standard smartphone audio, others want something more to compliment there more costly gear. So either a standalone DAP (digital audio player) or one of the few smartphone that actually offers high quality audio output.
Nice little player, decent sound quality. Tiny...but awesome!
Got mine in the mail yesterday. The firmware it shipped with does not have a DAC out function, v1.0. I had to upgrade to the latest beta firmware to get the DAC out function. Firmware here: http://hidizs.com.cn/support.php (direct link: http://www.hidizs.com/uploads/wenjian/AP60%20firmware%20ver.1.01Beta.zip). Their english site is not reliable. Unzip the contents to the top level on your microSD and follow the instructions in the box.
Watch the power draw of your DAC. I plugged up a few different units and they worked. The Centrance DACport slim made the DAP shutoff immediately. Holding the power down did not bring it back up. I had to plug USB power in and it came back up. It obviously draws too much power for the AP60 to handle.
One feature that I found handy is that it can use USB flash drives connected via an OTG adapter. It is not limited to just its onboard microSD.
So far, so good. Works as advertised. Half the price of the ipod nano I bought my wife a few years ago with way better sound and features.
Just got mine, is anyone else having problems with the back button? At first It would only work if I double-tapped, but now I can't get it to work at all.
Is this better than a Fiio x3? The first version.

Thank You
I heard the same. :(
Anyone know if this has a digital output (which I would plug into an external DAC and amp)?

Read down about two inches. USB digital out works.
Great little DAP with lots of features. UI buttons can be a bit difficult to use just due to the size of the device, but it is otherwise pretty intuitive and easy to use. Also, it's about $8 less now than it was a few drops ago when I got mine.
I finally got my AP60 from the last drop. It came with firmware 1.0. I didn't play with it to see what it did or didn't do. As far as I know, 1.0 isn't documented. So, I just updated to 1.01. DAC out works to my FIIO Q1. I don't have Windows, and Hidizs doesn't have a Linux driver, but, it works as a DAC for my Linux Mint (17.2) desktop. All in all, this thing does support all the functions they list in the specs. Also, it read my 12k song library (mix of FLAC and MP3) in little over 3 minutes! I'm using a 200 GB SanDisk I got off of Amazon for $50, so nothing fancy here. Connected via bluetooth to my Sony MDR100abn, Treblab XR500, and Oontz speaker. I could think of a few features I would add. But, for the price, it is solid, it sounds great, and it works!
If that is all you need, get one!

This is what I want to know also, these DAP really need to evolve for us audio freaks who have thousands of songs. I want something like the AIMP player but with intuitive search features for artists, tracks, etc... There isn't really one out there, it's use an Android phone with AIMP or use nothing.

FYI, the search feature on my Cowon player works very well.
Does this receive bluetooth signal? Eg. music from phone to the dap via bluetooth.
ShiroNek0
Yup, it can be used as bluetooth dac
Hmm..no mention of replaygain, so pass. Looks like a nice design, too bad about the ship costs.

For those not reading Head-FI every hour, or checking the Hidizs web site daily, new firmware is out and it enables the last missing feature of USB digital out. Now the AP60 can be a transport for your external DAC/Amp. Now, if Hidizs will just send our DAPs to Massdrop, we could enjoy the same. Fingers crossed for a "by Christmas" delivery.
Too bad. Sounds like it would got her faster from Penon Audio. I got the Hidizs cover/case for it off of ebay 1 week ago. And, yeah, I ordered the case after I joined the drop. I know, not really Massdrop's fault. Just disappointing.
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.

It says in the description it has a 20-20k Hz range, is that a device restriction or headphone restriction? Like would it play lower or higher than that range with different headphones is my question.
Just about there! Our vendor has informed us that the Hidizs AP60 Digital Audio Player will be available to them by end of the week.
