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 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 behind:

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:

Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I received the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player from their kickstarter campaign. 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!

Hi everyone,

Today, I received the UGREEN USB to Micro USB Y cable and I'm going to show it to you and also my use of it.

The UGREEN USB to Micro USB Y cable is a USB cable that splits into 2, and yes, you can use it to connect 2 devices simultaneously and transfer data to them because the cable acts as a USB Hub. This is the cable
