I downloaded and installed it, and surprise! We have LDAC support now! This means that it can be used as an LDAC bluetooth receiver and should also work as a transmitted, altough I haven’t tested this mode yet. To test the Hidizs AP80 LDAC functionality, I tried using my phone but for…

Using the Hidizs AP80 as a Micro SD reader

Using the Hidizs AP80 as a Micro SD reader

Hi everyone, It comes a time when I have to update my Windows devices manually because sometimes, on my Intel Atom machines, Windows Update fails to install a Windows Insider build. I know I’m not the only one who have had this happened. One thing one can do to solve this is to go ahead and download a Windows Insider ISO and then create a bootable micro SD card, with tools like Rufus. Now, the bootable part is not important,…

Photos of the Hidizs DH1000 DAC/AMP Circuit Board (Teardown)

Hi everyone, Today, I’d like to show you some pictures of the Hidizs DH1000 Circuit Board. We need to take out the top and bottom glass first. You can remove the top glass if you want to see the main chips, and you can remove the bottom glass to take a look at the battery. Please note that the glasses are completely glued, not just the borders, so you’ll need something that you can use to carefully remove the glue…

Hi everyone, Today, I’d like to show you some photos of the Hidizs AP80. I really enjoy this Digital Audio Player since it produces a very good sound and it’s perfect for offline playback. Also, the FM radio sometimes comes in handy to listen to local stations. Here’s some pictures of it: Here’s the AP80 connected to the Google USB-C to 3.5mm dongle. It works straight out of the box. Simply connect it and enjoy the music. It also allows…

Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I received the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player from their [kickstarter campaign](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/873263862/hidizs-ap80-next-generation-ultraportable-hifi-mus). After that, I received a tracking number which is of no use because of course, I already have the unit here and it shows as “Delivered”, so it came as a surprise and was shipped by Amazon since they fullfill US orders from them.

So, here’s my unboxing video that I recorded of this tiny (smaller than I expected) audio player. Enjoy!

This is the cable: Taken out of the package: Now, this is where…

Hidizs DH1000 using a USB Meter to simulate a Y cable

Hi everyone, As you may have seen from my previous posts, I’ve been developing GUI’s for FLAC and Opus, which are 2 great audio formats. This, of course, means I listen to music, and to enjoy them, I use my Hidizs DH1000 USB DAC/Amp. The sound it produces is awesome, but I’ve been having issues lately due to it charging very slow. Because the unit charges very slow, at just 0.09A according to my meter, I needed to figure out…
