Hi everyone, Today, I received the Hidizs Sonata HD USB-C to 3.5mm DAC Cable.

The UGREEN 2.5-inch HDD and SSD to USB-C 3.1 Enclosure

Hi everyone, Today, I’m going to show you the UGREEN 2.5-inch Hard Disk Drive and Solid State Disk to USB-C 3.1 Enclosure. This is, as the name states, a Hard Disk Drive enclosure for 2.5 inch drives. It also works with Solid State Disks.

This is an advantage if you have other USB-C…

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.

The Genki Bluetooth Adapter for Nintendo Switch

The Genki Bluetooth Adapter for Nintendo Switch

Hi everyone,

Today, I’d like to show you the Genki Bluetooth Adapter specifically made for the Nintendo Switch. This was a [Kickstarter Project](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/humanthings/genki-bluetooth-audio-for-the-nintendo-switch) that ran successfully. The Genki Bluetooth adapter is basically a USB-C Audio Device that converts the audio signal into Bluetooth and transmits it to your favorite headphones or Bluetooth receivers. Given that this is basically a USB-C adapter, this means that it is also compatible with PC’s and certain Android devices supporting USB-C audio devices.

Since the Nintendo Switch doesn’t currently allow the connection of Bluetooth audio devices, this comes very handy, as the latest Switch firmware adds support for USB Audio Devices. This adapter does its magic because it has a chip that converts the audio that the Switch transmits to this device into Bluetooth and therefore enables you to use your Bluetooth devices with your switch. It also has the benefit of using Qualcomm’s aptX and aptX Low Latency codecs, the latter which is a most to play without any noticeable audio lag. It also supports the AAC codec and of course, the standard SBC codec.

Crash Bandicoot – N. Sane Trilogy for Nintendo Switch

Hi everyone, Today, I’m showing one of the games I own. It’s Crash Bandicoot – N. Sane Trilogy for the Nintendo Switch. Interestingly, Amazon for some reason sent me the European version as you can see the PEGI logo. More interesting is that the game was sold from a U.S. warehouse by Amazon itself. I have no idea why this happened but hey, the Nintendo Switch is region free! Meaning I can play the game in my system. So here’s…
