Announcement of Cayin N8 firmware v2.0



This is a very special firmware update to n8.  After a long authentication process, we finally can support LDAC in both transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) mode.  While there is not a lot of Bluetooth headphone supports LDAC right at this moment, all Android 8.1 mobile phone can, theoretically, serve at a LDAC transmitter.  In other word, you can stream your Tidal, Qobuz or Spotify from appropriate mobile devices to N8 at Hi-Res (up to 96kHz) and use N8 as a wireless DAC.  This is a reliable and convenient route to enjoy your streaming service through your beloved N8 Digital Audio Player.
