If anyone's having trouble installing a driver the one from this link seems good for W7. http://www.freak-tab.de/freaktab/Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.7.rar  I agree that it's the preferred install. I hear a bit more of what you're getting at when installed this way. I've used the installer before on...
If you ever played with buffers size in even the best programs like Wavelab or interfaces like Weiss and TC, you'd understand that adding any inline function can affect the sound, even when bit perfect and not adding noise. Like I said, I've heard the sig of gapless engaged on every better player I've tried it on. Again, this a subtle thing that many won't notice and in no way unique to the DX90. I highly doubt that they've changed the processor utilization and have simply...
It's quite subtle and less than I got with my other DAPs but yes it does change a bit and I'm sure they all measure flat. There's that spec vs what we hear bugger again. I used to change the sound of my HiSounds by simply changing the allocation table during a format in the FW process. No rhyme or reason but we hear it. I owned 3 Sansa models and each FW change was much more noticeable than these which are quite subtle. I don't think the DX90 has ever changed it's flavor...
LOL, Silverears call it V shaped and you hear mids are boosted. To me, the previous FW had added presence which I liked a bit better than the 1st FW which was a bit laid back but this one is the most neutral. Sort of in between with good UI function. I guess we all have our own preferences. I can hear gapless engaged on any DAP informative enough to matter so no problem there. The low bass issue you're having is not noticeable by me on my JH13s. Probably a synergy thing...
I can still get some stuttering on 24/192 if I start winding it back and forth like when testing preferences but it never happens in normal play. That hasn't changed with any of the FWs but I don't consider it a big deal. Reselect the track and it's fine. No one actually listens to music that way.
Make sure to do a factory reset. Try med gain with gapless engaged. I actually think this FW is more even sounding as the players natural tendency seems to be a hair warm. The last FW had a touch extra presence which I think is what you're hearing. Fast roll also tightens things up if you feel it's needed. I'm enjoying it in slow roll with these setting (and the Samsung battery).
I do prefer the sound of this update. More even sounding. Subtle changes but I now like the sound with gapless engaged. I no longer have a preference for inverted or not. The gapless leans it out just a tad and adds a touch of presence to give a perspective of tightening it up that appeals to me. My gain preference is still medium. On less good files, I can vacillate between sharp and slow roll but on the best files always prefer slow. A fun 15min of listening to the new FW.
Didn't work.
There is a current thread going just a few below this one  and have been multiple others that get closed because of zealots on one side of the issue or the other. The accusation nature of your post will start this one off in the very same direction. There's not a more neutral audio hobby site on the net and you claiming foul just shows your lack of perspective and objectivity.
  Maybe you guys are taking a it too literally and he meant within a week. There are language barriers at work here. I think iBasso is well above average for approaching their projections. I guess they'd be perfect if they never said anything before it actually happened.
