Hello,
Just received the DMP-A6. Really happy with SQ and GUI. I've read more than hundred page on this thread and don't remember people talking about the click sound when the unit is turned on on off and also changing input. Is it normal ?
It happens with my unit.
By the way, what do you guys prefer to browse files on a NAS ?
I'm currently using NFS. Is there any benefit using another method ?
Thank you.

Thanks for the details.

I just received the DMP-A8 and am using rca analog out to the cd input of my Denon X3700 avr. Is it possible to bypass the preamp function of the A8 with analog connection? I see a volume passthrough option for digital connections but not for analog. If not what is the optimal process for volume control using avr with analog connection? Should I max the volume on the A8? Thanks

Hello,
I'm mainly using the internal player as the DAC pleases me.
Nevertheless, I was hoping to output to a USB DAC for a special usecase.
I have a small Fiio DAC with bluetooth LDAC transmitter that lets me enjoy movies in my IEM/haedphones.
They are connecte to a Quedelix 5K. Unfortunately, there's no way to output the extarnal USB DAC when the source is not the Internal player.
Do you think this could be an upcoming feature ?
Is my usecase totally weird or "Niche" ?
I'm also facing a weird situation.
I just realized that in the "Streaming Music services", a Tidal and Deezer premium accounts are already connected.
These are not mine.
The DMP-A6 was supposed to be new, but anyway, even it was already used, the device was wiped when first turned on.
I had to set it up from scratch. How can those accounts be connected ?
This is strange.
Thanks for your feedbacks.

You have someone’s log in details for Tidal and Deezer!
Clearly not a new unit.
@billygwh3 I would just turn the volume to maximum, if you can’t use the volume passthrough.

Would you return the unit for that ?

Did you pay the new price?
If you did then you should receive a new unit.

It isn’t unreasonable to expect a new sealed unit if you pay the new price.
I suppose this is what happens when shops are offering up to 90 days ‘trial’.

The little box containing the AC adaptor was a bit damaged. I did not want to believe it, and tried to convince myself.
The unit itself was like new. No scratch or anything.
I would have kept it without the account issues.
Will definitely return it.
Do they have to tell you when the device comes back from a trial ?

The black box is shrink wrapped in cellophane, yes they should state that the unit is ex-dem or ‘b’ stock or second hand.

I've scanned my local files library using NFS.
I can browse it and it works well.
But folders and subfolder's thumbnails/covers are not displayed when browsing the library on iPad and Android App
Just files display covers when browsing.
My cover files are cover.jpg or folder.jpg different sizes and no luck.
Any idea ?

This doesn't sound like an issue on A6 side. Maybe you need to check your NFS share parameters

I've checked my NSF settings. No restrictions or whatsoever. Same thing if i scan my library with SMB protocole instead of NFS.
I can see folder's covers when browsing the library directly on the device but covers do not show up when i browse the library on the iOS or Android app.
Im' talking about the library browsing.
For instance, i f i browse the artists or albums tabs, covers are displayed, but not in the library tab.
Funny thing, if i browse files from the "Files" section" of the app, folder's covers are displayed but not the files'covers...

Hi,

I have connected to the A6 Audiophonics HP400 amplifier and Gustard P26 preamp, the sound is great, I put it on my Triangle columns, it's amazingly accurate, it's incredible the level of detail, accurate highs without excess.

I like this product a lot. Not enough to replace an AVR in a my system but.. If they were to come with a product, with similar aesthetics and performance levels but with :
1) DSP/DRC Audyssey-like or Dirac with DLBC...
2) EQ with Adaptive loudness
3) Subwoofers outputs (2 at least)
4) Analog inputs
5) Digital inputs?

I believe they'd have the perfect product, for me at least :)

Dream product, maybe. I believe such features would answer many prayers. I also understand that would come at a cost.

Peace.
Well just use a receiver. I connected my dmp a6 m.a to my denon receiver via hdmi. It sounds great, but I must say that the denon's own heos streamer sounds great aswell (but the app is a bit less convenient)
When listening a bit more critically, I stream via usb to my external dac (gustard r26), usong xlr to my denafrips hestia preamp and from there to the poweramp
