    Might consider it to be used as a Music Player using a quality 3-rd party Music Player App with it plus a BT pointer mouse. If UAPP runs with it (it has an External USB input for the DAC)? HibyMusic does for sure. UAPP support and development is really excellent. HiControl should then work too obviously for playing with the TV off
    An Egreat Controller APP for Android and IOS is in the make (all just Chinese for now obviously).

    It looks like a fantastic Music Player to me, coming close to if not matching Zidoo X on audio specifications (just without the front panel).
    The Chinese Yuan price is around € 900 after conversion and apparently already being sold on some places.

    Egreat for sure still is active in the media player market but focusing on the Chinese market.
    That notorious Android 7 upgrade might come or not come after all. I have an A10 (stuck with a partially updated Android 7) if that one will be ever updated? They changed to A10 II for production. .

    where did they publish the firmware? On their official site the latest one for the A5 is 1.2.5.6. from September 2017. It’s not on this forum, either.

    no idea, maybe they meant that a new A5 is out in a few days with the final OS ?!

    A5 gen 2 has better DAC and EGUI 3.0...still the same SOC...so not worth it...
    besides there won't be any software develeoppement anyway...like with all other egreat devices...

    Very nice details of the A15 player
    https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/rsKlPLCiyJ6UiY9dkRET9g
    It is an impressive player for sure which also can be used as a standalone DAC via USB-Input.

    Wondering if an English version will be released? When asked Egreat sales in Germany indicated me it will come in August?
    Guten Tag,
    Wir warten noch auf einen Termin für Europa.
    Ca. 4 Wochen.

    The video players are still not bad compared with other brands even when based on RTD1619 frankly.

    I am looking specifically into a HiFi Music Player what I basically need is an universal platform for top quality audio in all thinkable formats 2CH and MCH. Provided I can run existing quality APP's (above all USB Audio Player Pro) on it then it could do for my needs already? A15 is far better than Zidoo UHD2000 or Dune Ultra HD being the alternatives currently. Probably get myself a Zidoo X too when that one is released.

    The nice thing about Music Players is that no new stationary formats are coming out anymore. It all moved to online streaming services which I am not looking for. I want the plenty old standards to work instead including Multi Channel Audio. Yes A15 is a real candidate for that even with slow FW development taken for granted.
