Hi everyone,

Today morning, it came to my attention that there was a new firmware update for the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio player. 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.

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, as I'm upgrading my Windows install rather than doing a clean install.

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 you to control the AP80 by using the headset buttons:
