with the new update you have to enter your qobuz codes. It shows an error message on Android but it works on iPad. I can no longer use ma remote... back to bubble upnp. We must fix these bugs with Android !!

Since the last update, I hear two small consecutive "slaps" when the xsabre wakes up after a long time. Anyone have this problem?

A question about x-sabre 3. Do you know if design is balanced or not? Using xlr i will have a full balanced output?

Good evening

I tried to make a firmware update of my Matrix Audio X-Sabre 3 this afternoon and after the firmware update it got stuck :(

It says "Please wait"

Then I get a short Update bar and then the Message

"Firmware verification failed please try again"

There is no way to get any acces with my remote control to the Sabre 3

Any help is highly appreciated

Is there some restore to factory settings hot key or what can I do?

Thank you and kind regards
Christian

Unplug power cord, wait 1 min and plug it back. After that, you should be fine. Then try the firmware update again.

Thank you. I unplugged the cord for 15 minutes. Afterwards same error. I habe no access to settings. The power button is glowing but does not react on pressing.

To me it seems that the update has been downloaded. After the reboot it tries to install ist but then suddenly aborts the installation.

Kind regards
