Hey Rob that may not be the right cable, see the thread on 3.5>2.5, it’s gotta be a four pole connector to be able to safely run them at 2.5.

Thanks Marc! Did I mention the learning curve I'm experiencing going to a hi-res DAP?  :-[

Potential case for the Pioneer?
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003LSTD38



I kicked down for the $38 fake leather case.  I already have an array of small Lowepro cases.

I was unimpressed by the shell, and am waiting on the notebook case to come in from JPN   (mmm, leatherette!)
At $5, the zipper 2.5" external HDD case is easy to modify and mangle until the real deal clears Customs and the Panama Canal (or however they get here these days)

More headphones today, since I went out into the shop and grabbed my old Grado SR80e which is very pleasant, and more present than the laidback HD580
dropped in my cheapo Etys and a pair of Panasonic joggers, the Panasonic buds were none improved by the better DAP ...  silk purse from sow's ear, not likely
The Etymotics did it serious justice, but my ears get weird with stuff in them, so I only use plugs or IEMs when no other option exists.

Did the player get there yet ?

It took me a while to figure out my ct10 and I know the sr15 does way more stuff. It's worth it, hang in there.

Loving the 30r David. It crushes my Activo ct10 and Fiio x3. Not even burned in. :headphones:

+T for new toys.    :D

Three nights of SCI NYE locked, loaded, and swirling in my headphones.
Sam Bush really finds his way quickly in night one, which doesn't surprise me at all.
Great nods to New Grass Revival-era Country and Eastern Music

Still trying to get Jon O  to comment on a balanced transformer load in place of headphones to couple an amp to it.
It would be wild to feed the Pioneer 30r into my n0rh SE-9 into the TQWT full range speakers

I’ve seen probably 20 sci shows, but none since 2004. It got to electronically for me. Great songs though. Still pining for old bluegrass style.

The Pioneer is amazing, I'm streaming mqa Let it Bleed and Beggars Banquet back to back and just really happy with it. I agree with the "criticism" that it is laid back. But it's laid back like Jackie Brown. Smooth as fk.  :headphones:

With the Holidays winding down and that rediculous CD ripping project completed, I'm now drilling into the SR15. What Windows interface do you guys use for your DAPs? I'm liking the JRiver Media Center but so far haven't been able to get it recognize my SR15. The JRiver forum says their 32bit Win version should work but nothing definitive.

I don't use any interface, the PC recognizes it as a drive and I just drag and drop or highlight blocks of shows I want to copy to the dap.

Ripping with the fast Beta of   fre:ac  in CD Paranoia Mode         -  https://www.freac.org/
Tagging FLACS  using "MP3tag"   (the German one  -  https://www.mp3tag.de/en/download.html)  Which I'm finally getting used to, it is reasonably intuitive, hooks to  freedb  and despite the name does WAV and FLAC files


The Pioneer has software, but I haven't tried it yet...   maybe I should, there's a streaming App & a few Control apps:

Hey David, can the eurolimiter of 60 be defeated running with earbuds?
