My impressions of Cayin N5MK2 after few days of usage.
Packaging was good n the player comes in a very nicely build black box. There is a silicon case and USB C cable included with it.
The player is built like a tank. The built quality is really outstanding and at par with astell n kern like players. It has an all aluminum body. The nicest thing is the volume wheel which is among the best I've seen it has a nice tactile feel and the rotations r accompanied by clicks. The wheel has slight golden accent to it. The wheel is firmly attached with the body with no part of it protuding which can lead to accidental rotations. There is a decent weight to the player. It has three buttons on the right previous track,next track and play/pause. There r two micro SD card slots at right each can support upto 400 GB capacity card. On the left there is power button. On the top there is a SE 3.5 mm output and a 2.5 mm balanced output. The sockets r robust. At the bottom there is a USB type C port for charging and data transfer. It also support OTG storage.
UI and SOFTWARE-
The player runs on heavily customized android 5.1.1 the home screen has many options for folder view, artists,album,genre,songs. V can access both the cards n main memory of the device from here. The player comes with 32 GB of on board storage from which somewhere about 27-28 GB is available for user. Swipe on the right brings about the menu from where many options like third party app n music scan b accessed. One can Install Tidal Spotify n etc streaming services n play. Drop down menu has settings for gain (H/M/L), line out,brightness,wifi,Bluetooth. One can access android system settings from here by pressing the gear icon. Though the system is smooth it occasionally shows minor glitches the player is prompt in scanning the media and it's lightening fast at that. The play also starts instantly there is no lag. Overall the UI and software is lag free but can b improved with future up...
Let me admit at the outset that I am not an audiophile. In fact I'm relatively new to the field of HD Audio. I must credit Headphone Zone for this new addiction of mine..
I'd read a lot about Cayin N5ii, while searching for a good DAP for about INR 30,000 or so. It was not available at that time on Headphonezone, so I had to wait for sometime before I could buy one for myself. And I must say that the wait was worth it. I was blown away with absolutely pure music flowing from this marvelous device. I paired the DAP with Audio-Technica ATH M50X, RHA MA750, Beyerdynamic T51i and IDX 200IE (using an adapter), and even DT 990 Pro. Each combination had its own distinctly pleasant flavour, if I may say that. I was pleasantly surprised that the DAP had enough juice to drive even DT990 Pro (250 ohm) with some sparkle. I am definitely impressed at the way the hardware just disappears, while listening to music. These are excellent value for money.
I tried pairing it with Chord Mojo through USB. While it worked flawlessly with Cayin CS 40TC35 USB to coaxial cable, the sound was heavily distorted with USB to USB cable. Suspecting a faulty cable, I changed the cable and tried again, but still no change in status. I tried the same cables between Cayin N3 and Chord Mojo, absolutely no problem.. So, I presume that USB to USB implementation in N5ii does require some work. Although nobody would buy N5ii for using it as a DAT, especially when N3 is available as a much better option for the purpose at a friendlier price point and with a host of additional features, I still hope that the issue would be addressed in a future upgrade..
There are some minor glitches, especially with third party apps, which point that maybe a little more RAM would have been better... But then, maybe I am being a little greedy..
Overall, it's an excellent package, a wonderful DAP worth every penny of your hard earned money..
This is the first time I have purchased a dedicated audio player and I'll do my best to review it.
The Good Stuff:
The Cayin N5ii is beautifully build. It feels solid and the aluminum finish offers a nice feeling when you hold it. The buttons are great and I love having quick access to skipping or pausing tracks. The volume wheel really stands out and is a wonderful thing to use especially with its tactile feedback. Overall, I love the quality of the product.
The software is a heavily modified version of Android and it does its job wonderfully. Loading up my music via USB was easy enough and the player is super fast at scanning. It took seconds to scan a 1000 or so tracks!
After buying the N5ii, I picked up a pair of Tin Audio T2's to pair it with. The sound quality is simply amazing! Before this, I'd either use my phone with LP 2 or my desktop with Edifier C2.1 speakers. I could immediately feel a huge difference in the clarity and quality of music on the N5ii and it has become my daily driver for music now.
The Not So Good Stuff:
- The UI does feel a bit clunky and sometimes taps don't register at all, especially if you try to tap the tiny back arrow on the screen instead of using the software button.
- The biggest problem for me though after installing Google Play Music, the buttons on the player became useless. It seems that Android apps have a problem where hardware buttons get forced to apps which are not even in use. After installing GPM, if I used the default player for music and press any of the prev/pause/next buttons, it would start playing music from GPM. Even if I was in Audio Priority mode where third party apps don't work, using these buttons would trigger GPM, pause my current track and start playing music from GPM. It was so annoying that I had to uninstall GPM and go back to physically loading tracks on the player.
- Bluetooth lacks AptX
I'm happy enough with the player to ignore the annoyances and love i...
