Kii Three - my impressions and pro reviews


Recommended Posts

No, I just saw it there, downloaded the tool and updated. Updated both my speakers and Control to latest versions.

 

After the update, had to repair my Remote Control with the Kii Control and re-enter boundary settings. There's a warning that updating the Control can erase settings, and to write them down first. 

Have functioning BT now and paired the Kiis to my phone just to test that it works - it does. 

Can now impress my friends with songs on their phones through the Kiis.

Cool. 

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

I'm not seeing the upgrade tool on the support pages. Perhaps they have taken it down.

yes, it seems to be available again, and also the FW is newer than this morning.

The tool is now version 1.0.9 with the firmware for v2.0.

There is als a new nav section on the left now for operation of KC with firmware version 2.0.

Maybe you have to be quick before it gets taken down again....

I still have access to the site. 

It’s back again. Downloaded Updater, it recognised I have 2 speakers, crashed when I clicked on the app icon. Running Win 10.

That's might be the reason for Kii taking it down? 

 

Edit:

Tried to run the program as administrator?
