I wish they would sort out existing problems first before launching yet more products

I agree totaly .
But more money to be made with new products it seems ..........

Hopefully new firmware out soon as been nearly 2 months for some boxes now .

I have had the box for months and still cannot playback 4k content without zdmc or kodi crashing instantly. Wish I had bought a shield instead.

thanks for the informations Delucas

Looks like its now reached a point where High End Streamer Boxes are coming a common place ......
With more and more functions being added and is this a first for SACD Audio playback ?

Id like to see a shoot out test for which one gives the best Picture playback on these Forums .

yes, especially with Zidoo and Egreat :)

I do not know if this is a first for SACD Audio playback...

yes it would be interesting, in all objectivity i find the PQ of the zidoo better than the egreat out of box in color gradients, it's just my opinion after making a comparison between the 2 devices on some film scenes.

see you

Heard the new X6 pro
Gives a better picture because of the new 3.0 engine ?

Front image is a fake according to other sites.
If not , where is the drive for SACD, all I see is two hard drive bays.

Assuming the back is real, then that means SACD is limited to two channel only, which seems a waste of an ESS 9038 DAC.

It is not a fake the pictures above are the actual item .
SACD id imagine its ripped or extracted from a sacd disc and installed via the hard drive bays or usb ports ?

This is a streaming box not a Blu ray player

Hence why its in the streaming box thread .

There are any amount of streaming boxes that do that already, its called DSD capable.
Specifically mentioning SACD usually means the disc.

So it can play SACD ISO. How exactly does one go about making those? Only way I ever heard of doing this was with an original PS3 hacked for the purpose. Is there is a more sensible and straightforward way of backing up your SACD collection now?

Which player did you prefer - Egreat A5/A10/A11 or Zidoo X8/X9s/X10?
It seems that both have the same potential - I am interested in the playback of BD ISO / UHD ISO

Thanks.
