nDAC firmware version?

Hello,
For those of you familiar with the nDAC, is it safe to assume that the latest FW, 4.11.8, is indeed installed in my version? I did the Apple device check in the screenshot below and it does indicate that 4.11.8 is installed. I imagine I can trust that. Not particularly motivated to re-flash the FW as I read that the device could be “bricked” is something goes wrong…Thanks.

Long time ago I had the dac but I believe that one feature that was added is the support for flac files, so another test is to find a matching usb stick that the ndac gets along with usually fat32 formatted 1 or 2 or 4 gb sticks if you still can find them and place a flac file on the stick and see if it plays the track or not.

Just answering myself…Played some DSD 64 and 128 tracks so it looks like everything is in order.

Well, my iPhone says exactly the same as yours, so it’s probably OK :grin: :laughing:

4.11.8 is indeed the latest firmware, as you have discovered by playing a DSD file.

All I want for the new year is an updated nDAC! I love my current one but wish Naim would launch a new player. One can dream I suppose.

It doesn’t appear to be in the pipeline I’m afraid…
