Funny, Hidizs just sent me a new one after the stuttering problems of the first. Hope it fixes, i noted the sound was great while it worked

Hi:
Nice review! I have an Audio Quest Red which I've had for 4-5 years now which I use with my laptop. I was very disappointed to see how it compared to the Hidizs S9! Your review was very thorough as it was with the disappointing AQ Blue. I guess their massive advertising budget accounts for the sales and all the positive reviews in the main stream mags. Keep up the good work much appreciated!
Scienceguy.

I found Hidizs s9 Pro does not support 512 DSD .. at least on my Roon ..
- DSD up to 256 (working)
- PCM up to 768Khz (working)
- MQA (working)

I contacted the web chat support .. they asked me to download Hiby for test but still not support DSD 512 (not) but 256 (playable) .. Is there anyone got tested or having issue like mine ..

Thanks
