Seriously? 44.1 KHz WAV fails, in digital out? Isn't that a direct bit-by-bit pass-thru, of the most common sampling rate? If you are correct, that's awfully beta-y, nevermind "working on a solution".

I notice the "myoliveone.com" website has changed, removing the "pre-order" labels from their "Buy" tab. Has anybody actually placed an order within the last month and received one from stock, i.e. in less than a week?
44.1Hz WAV works thru the Coax out to my PS Audio DL III Dac without any distortion.

Damn, so there's no digital input at all except bluetooth? Who's the genius who thought that one up?

Damn good question. Had I known that I would have bought one with an internal HD. So far it makes a great paperweight... until I get an HDD that is.

Wow, that's quite a bug... A lot of my music are ripped CD, so I cannot use Olive 1 to steam to my music system...

Also I read there is no native support for Spotify and Pandora, you need to use a smartphone or tablet app to stream.
Could somebody confirm that? How's the steaming works... thru WiFi or bluetooth?

Hi everybody,
I have an olive 4 HD and I hesitate to order an Olive One .
My configuration is Mcintosh 402 and preamplifier/ DAC Ayon Skylla II . Do you think the sound is good as olive 4HD?
Thanks for your help.
