Since then, are those "popclicks" still there with no delay option ?
Actually, I'm routinely using it for encoding video soundtrack. Don't use it for music.

Alright. Actually i'm also referring to this. So is it safe if I use nodelay for video soundtrack right now or is it better if I take care of the delay manually?

Ah, yes, I did do that at least a few times in its lifetime.

I noticed a bug for the "tag writing" feature : when the tag is generated, quite often, there is an invisible additional special character at the very end.
For exemple if the tag is "Pop/Rock; Art Rock; Prog-Rock; Album Rock", the fist genres will be ok, but the last one will be diplayed in Foobar like this "Album Rock (...)"
I guess this unwanted additional special character is most likely "carriage return" or something similar.

ironically a DAP that is too loud at volume 1 is what got me into the audiophile world some years back. [...]
Of course one could try things like http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-Stereo-Headphone-Jack-Audio-Male-To-2-Female-Splitter-Cable-Volume-Control-/311958327029
(Looks like if you want it cheap at eBay, you must either take a Y adaptor or a long cable ... no small thing that only fixes volume? I didn't check thoroughly though.)

Not all files require conversion. I agree with your point, but it does not apply to those files being copied without prior conversion.

Google Play Music has been replacing whichever uploaded song matches theirs and keeping the original file when it doesn't.

Mine only did that before (twice) whenever, (unbeknowst to me) I tried to walk whislt stepping on it.
Apart from those two faux pas, it worked like a charm till said mistreatment.

Thank you much everyone! I read everyone's posts really interesting too.

Absolutely AMP and impedance/FR stuff is affected also by our earphones too.

@castleofargh Im also happy to see you here. I watch headfi sound science area too!
Really good meaning on expensive daps at above range. Battery wire attached and soldiering by hand is definitely marketing push by sony kn latest zx300.

Premium soldiering and audio circuitry and wiring are nice marketing words.

But whether those are audible changes. Totally different thing!

Opus / Re: Point of transparency of Opus 1.2

I'd like to see car manufacturers simply make the car stereo easily accessible to a variety of media devices; 3.5mm jack, usb connection, maybe allow CD playback still that supports lossy files such as mp3s and opus... hell, even data-DVD support to playback lossy files. The headphone jack and usb support would be easy and I've seen some cars with that in as standard; but not enough.
I wouldn't place any bet of most of those media formats you mentioned ever being supported by a single brand new device at this day and age though.
