Guys, quick question, I have mine for a few weeks already and noticed something odd.
First, I couldn't set it to 32 bit, but after the firmware update I found here that's fixed.
But an old problem persists: if I set if for 352800 or 384000 Hz I get a regular pop noise if anything is playing (regardless the bit rate I set).
Any ideas of what could be going on? Anyone noticed the same?
It's not like 192kHz is not enough, but I just wanted to know what's going on.

Hi.
Topping DX7s vs New SMSL M500, which is best buy right now ?
I'd say both are good, but the topping doesn't do mqa right, so that could be something that could help you choose. Otherwise, what I've heard so far is that the topping can sound slightly better, so if you're indifferent to mqa maybe go for it if there isn't much of a price difference
