I have the HM801 and am able to use 128 gb sd cards with it (as long as I format them).  I am considering getting the DX100 but would like to know first if I'll be able to use those cards with it or not.  iBasso website says it only takes 32 gb micro sd... but then the same was said of the HM801.  Would greatly appreciate any input...

1) SD cards and microSD cards are not the same. SD cards go up to 128gb, microSD stop at 64gb

2) As long as you format them to FAT32, 64 will work just fine, many of us use them.

 

3) For the love of cod, PLEASE use the search function or read the FAQ people!

INFIDEL! May Cod have mercy on your soul and forgive the folly of your ways.

Actually Halibut was a red herring. I prefer to flounder in a plate of salmon. It gives me a fuller sea bass and a less bright turbot. So you can see that my sole is beyond redemption.

I stopped listening to their studio albums years ago when I discovered http://archive.org/details/GratefulDead.

 

There are thousands of live shows on there going right back to the early days in the 60's.
SQ varies - some real dogs and some which just knock you off your feet. I think the shows from 77/78 are probably my favourites.
Most of the shows recorded directly from the soundboard are stream-only - I use Audacity to record them.
IMO the best ones are the "matrix" recordings - SB and audience mixes - a lot of them taped with good quality gear/mics and downloadable as lossless flac/shn/ogg files.

This is a great site too - for those of you into more contemporary music ...

I'm not sure if there's something wrong with my unit, but I can't believe this is worth $800. The sound is still quite muddy. I've been using it for a few days now.I'd rather listen to my iPod. I'm not sure how this could be a fault. The unit works pretty well, but the sound is so muddy, almost like a pair of speakers with a cloth placed over them. It sounds nothing like all the glowing reviews on this site.

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone!

Did you check the EQ is off (closed)? What 'phones are you using? Are you listening to mp3's?

... I think some troubleshooting is in order coz the dx100 most assuredly chews up and spits out iPods...

 

Did you get the unit direct from ibasso?  What firmware is it running?  What headphones and what gain?  Any chance of user error in your setup?

PS- I'm trying to use a 64GB card which is formatted as Fat32...it recognizes the files, but it doesn't play them

Yeah, that's what I was expecting. I got it direct from ibasso, I'm running 1.3.5, with a variety of headphones (AT ES10, M-100, 7506  ie not entry level) , and I've tried all the gain settings. I'm not sure what user errors I could be making. 

It's not down to my taste in sound either. It's muddy compared to all my other daps (including Studio V).

that sucks bro... I'd shoot an email to ibasso, see if they'll exchange your unit or at the very least, inspect it to see why its defective.  The dx100 should be a very audible step up from an iPod.
