Can I just download these and it'll upgrade automatically, or is there a link/site on where to install (the Fiio X3 had very specific instructions on updating firmware, for instance 3)I assume you had the card in to do burn in and charging. Have the dx90 plugged into my computer, would I be better off using the included plug (from DS, seems the answer is yes)
Thanks for any help


once you download the firmware, there are instructions on how to load new firmware with it. I would check to see if it has the new firmware installed on it already. It might be a newer batch DX90.

Firmware is 2.0.0...looking at the iBasso site, looks like they have a download for V2.0.5, and a USB-DAC driver., looks like I should upgrade, but not urgent at this moment
If I get the Mochill post right, I format the card in the PC (FAT32, I believe, there's some software somewhere that does this for you), load the music on the sd card with drag and drop, then put it into the DX90 and have it scan the files. Am I correct? Thanks again, non-techie here popcorn.gif

Yes that but for firmware do the other things I wrote 😃
post #25114 of 32912
Basically download firmware into internal memory.
In advanced settings there is option for firmware update.
*when complete*....do factory reset (this actually made firmware work on mine. The rolloff options showed up but were not selectable until I did the reset)
Scan files (can take a while initial time, but loads fast after this)

As for burn in, I dont beleive memory card was necessary. I kept mine running constantly. When battery was low, I plugged in and it charges and runs same time)

Sometimes I used headphones to burn (had tenores breaking in) sometimes the cable they sent

Done
Enjoy

Ok,thanks for the help,still a bit stuck. First,I tried to format the128 gb card,the drop-down doesn't have FAT32 option to select. Next, when I connected the iBasso to my PC,don't see it listed as a drive. Don't see how I would download music to it,much less upgrade the firmware. As an aside,do people find drag& drop to be the best way to load music? I was using JRiver to load my X3,think it may have caused tagging issues,making it hard to use the X3 in anything but file searching mode.
Thanks again!

you can buy a micro sd adapter on amazon that is usb.  then you can create the music files on the card directly on your computer

using drag and drop and just pop it in the iBasso.

I used mediamonkey to transfer music.

If u have the x3 still, maybe use that to format ur card.

Also under dx80 options, I think there was an option for usb (use as dac or for storage)....maybe see what that setting is listed as

Got my Singolos a few days ago; they're very detailed in the treble and have nice bass for a BA phone. However, I'm still curious about the TE-05 so I'll probably sell them to give the Fostex a chance. I already have the Basso(which out of the Zero Audio lineup seems to suit my tastes best).

Well, I don't know how long it will last, but  amazon.jpn is selling the ATH-IM03 for about $190. This was like a $350 earphone. I would jump it. The kicker is that it's a 1 to two month delivery, but amazon is the seller (not a third party). I can wait that long (it shows delivery between June 19 and July 15th). I doubt it take until July though. I would jump on this deal. This will hold me over and give me time for the CKR10 to drop in price. 

 

I have shipped my CKR9 back to Japan for a new one. No, there's no warranty since it's an import, but I just found the right person to talk with at Audio Technica. Happy listening!!

Sorry I've been busy recently, just did A/B comparison between this two and I found that Singolos are better than Tenores in every aspects except soundstage. I found soundstage on Singolos is a bit more congest when compare to Tenores for example when I listened to Eric Clapton's "Old love" i found the cymbal sounds clearer and easier to detect on Tenores and when I switch to Singolos I still can hear that cymbal but I need to listen more carefully.

Bass on both phone are great both have the same depth but Tenores have a boomer bass as they are dynamic driver.

Mid on Singolos is more forward, vocal is clearer and and has more weight

Treble on Singolos is very detail and crystal clear but not as detail as Doppio or TE-05 but they are better than any under$100 phones I ever heard. Tenores also have a nice details but they are just one step down when compare to Singolos.

Just to make sure you guys don't miss it, I just posted a link to my full review (Zero Audio Carbo Tenore and Carbo Doppio) with some teaser pictures: http://www.head-fi.org/t/684159/chinese-asian-brand-info-thread-headphones-iems-amps-dacs/3660#post_10612206

There are2 settings,I believe usb and dac (I'm @ work, don't have it with ). I've had MediaMonkey in the past,maybe download it again,though use JRIVER for almost all my PC listening. Give the other ideas a try when I get home. Thanks again.
