Is it DSD256 in paragraph or DSD128 in specs? I want the truth, I can handle it.
Can I download a user guide anywhere? I'd like to learn about the player's features.
It depends on your usage. If you were listening to your "local" music stored in a TF card, N3 can native decode DSD256. If you were to use N3 as a USB DAC (similar to an external sound card) for your computer, it will only native decode DSD128.
Thanks Andy. Can you provide a link to the user's guide?
We don't have an online user guide right now, maybe you can check out the product description at Cayin website, hopefully that will explain the technical attributes in more detail.
Thanks for the link. What does 'DSD not supported by Bluetooth transmission' exactly mean? If I have DSD on the TF card the N3 can't broadcast it to my bluetooth device? Also, the link says it supports DSD64 as a USB DAC? Is it DSD128 or DSD64?
Yes, you cannot transmit a dsd file from your TF card in N3 to a remote Bluetooth device, or vice versa. Because DSD has strict copy-protection policy and they only allowed "secured" transmission that can't be tempered or intersected in between, Bluetooth connection is not certified for that. Besides BTv4.0 with apt-X has bandwidth limitation, it can't accommodate DSD64 as-is.
