Just wondering if anyone else on the community has had an issue with what IFI on their website are now calling BRICKING on the xDSD Gryphon.
Basically the device stops being able to receive any signal, eventually shuts down and can’t be recharged or restarted until the device discharges and remaining charge completely.
I purchased mine just on 90 days ago and the first incident happened after the second day. Reported it to the HiFi Store but said i would wait till after the weekend before sending it back. It started to charge on the Monday and then continued to work well for about 5-6 weeks before dying again and being unable to charge or turn it on.
Sent it back to the supplier in Melbourne which took 8 days and of course by that time it had discharged and the store was able to charge it, told me it was a charging issue because i was using Apple USB A and USB C plugs. Anyway they sent it back and in the meantime i purchased a new 65W Charger.
Got it back on the Friday afternoon and it Bricked again on Saturday night. Unfortunately it was 100% charged when it happened and it took 10 days to discharge. Anyway, that was when i found the updates on the Support pages on the IFI Website describing the Bricking.
Finally did a charge but only did 50% in case it Bricked again. Tried to do the firmware updates on my iMac (after having to turn off Apple Security Protocols to allow the updates to run) but it Bricked again.
Sent it back to the supplier last week as this is now 4 times it has occurred and I have requested a full refund as it has only worked for 49 days out of 90 or just under 55% of the time.
Now I’m being Bricked by them as they are still claiming it is a charging issue and would not even look at the device to see that the LED Lights are on, even though the Device is OFF…
So predominately interested if anyone else has experienced this with the IFI Gryphon and letting people know this is now a known issue. I felt it must be a bit of an issue if they now have a section on their support page about it. Not looking for advise about refunds as that is all in hand. Cheers…
Attached a picture to show that the Device is off, but the LED Lights showing what was on when last used are still on. This is apparently how the device slowly discharges!!
