USB port can not be used to charge

post #107 of 126

No USB charge, no USB DAC, limited battery life, I hope the sound is better than a StudioV  ?

Guys and gals sorry to burst your bubbles but upon further inspection that extra cable is not for charging. I'm guessing it's an audio cable of some sort. So I can't confirm if a external battery pack will actually work. Once again sorry for the misunderstanding :p

So far I feel the sound is an improvement over the Studio V. I'll have to spend more time with it to gauge its qualities and sound. Now if you were just looking into having a FLAC player with great sound and portability the Studio V is an excellent choice. But it too does have its flaws. One being hiss which I am more than willing to live with because it sounds that good on my IE80s. I have to say this player (DX100) is mainly worth it's weight if you are gonna use most of its features and have good headphones/IEMs to use it to its potential. Looking forward to getting my Heir 8.A and seeing what this baby can do :). I have yet to test my Open-back denon 5000s but I'll give it a whirl when I get home...

You should have:

  • a male mini-USB to male standard USB to connect the DX100 to a computer, for up & downloading music
  • a male 3.5mm mini-jack to male RCA for coaxial digital audio output from the DX100
  • a standard US/ASIA mains cable (easily replaceable by a standard one of your continent/country) that plugs into the 100-240V AC to 12V DC adapter to power and charge up the DX100

I was told it could do up to 16/48, still not as good as the higher samples but a viable option when downsampling from 24/96. I for one am not gonna part with my studio V. The 601 will be on the for sale forum shortly.

Fortunately there are portable chargers that use the kind of power cables the DX100 does, albeit they're usually a little bigger than a USB one.

I won't take a risk with that. I mean I have 2 DAPs on the move one with amazing battery life and one without ;).

 

Both sounds really good compared to your average DAP.
