Cayin N3, a little cracker

Recommended Posts

Wow what a massive WOW moment, for $230 this things is serious business, has the same DAC as Klein DAC AK4490!

I can't stop listening to it.

I got one a few weeks back. Enough grunt and excellent warm sound with plenty of detail.

Loose the silicon condom looks better without it.

Looks aren't high on my priority list, just need to have a look at my head.

I thought I was happy with sound from Iphone 6 but this is in a different class altogether.

1 downside so far is I tried to hook up via blue tooth with car system but it's ask to enter a pin number, I can't do that.

Can you install Spotify on it?

 

Edit:  Answered my own question by reading the specs, no wi-fi...

Works fine with my car.

You could do the confirmation on the car as opposed to the player.

Yeah, have to go up a few models, I got this just as we are going to Fiji next month so will be perfect for relaxing at resort, when I get back I may sell it to get a WiFi android one like the fiio X5 gen 3. Also @Qwertyqaz why I have the rubber on.

Nah no good, dumb Mazda thinks the Cayin is a phone and wants me to enter a 4 digit pin to it.

Mine came up with Cayin on the display.

All song tags were there.

Ok, is it a Mazda or did it ask to enter a pin into device?

Just plugged the N3 into my Creek amp and it sounded good but I'm happy to say not as good as the Aries Mini, phew.

The point is that it is asking to put a pin on the N3 but it ain't got a key pad. The Mazda thinks it's a phone.

I am seriously ready to sell up all my 2 channel gear and just use DAP's from now on, seriously these are awesome. Listened to Genesis - Selling England by the Pound last night an album I'm very familiar with and I had to check it was the right album I was listening to, I was hearing things I never heard before. Amazing stuff.

I am considering getting this player. I want it for my car and also to play digital files through my usb dac in my home system. Do you know it know if it can output to a USB DAC and do I I need a particular cable?
