Am i doing something wrong?  has anyone been able to successfully download this update on a mac?

 

thanks


I have a mac also. When you download and unzip the file it will be named update.img

 

if you have previous updates in your download folder, it will rename the new ones to update1, update2, update3...etc

 

I usually move the latest to it's own folder then unzip it or you can rename update6 to update.img but it will overwrite the original thats already in your downloads folder if you have one.

 

The update file must be named update.img before you copy it to the DX or it won't recognize it.

For those of you that use amplifiers with the DX100. How do you keep the volume? Maxed out the DX? Or keep it in middle? Or something else?

I keep it at 240 out of 255.

It can also vary depending on the amp you are using. With the T1 I found the sound to be most balanced with the T1 clocked at half volume then I use the DX100 variable LO to adjust. Normally around 155 to 165 depending on tracks.

I keep the DX100 maxed out and adjust volume on the amps. I have no particular reason for doing it this way however.  I've tried lowering the DX volume a little and adjusting the amp volume, but I can't detect any sonic differences.

Typically running the source output at near max and controlling the volume with the downstream amp is said to result in the best signal to noise ratio. Whether or not this is audible likely depends on the quality of your phones and ears.

Thanks, so the norm is max at the source, which is good since it's usually easier to control volume from an amp knob rather than the DX digital controls that involves waking up the screen.

For me it has always been matching the output to input of the amp for the best dynamics without overloading the input......Also one needs to take into account the sweet spot on the amps volume potregular_smile%20.gif

Thread Starter 

Firmware upgrade. Two thumbs UP. Very good drive and resolution. The DX has matured very well with this upgrade. The combination of my ESW10 JPN and the DX works very, very well together.

Anyone got any idea what this FW update actually changed??

Wonder if they'll finally get their fw release changelog act sorted out for the upcoming dx50?

I tend to keep mine at the level I use for my CIEMs (210 ish, though depends on the track).

 

I have a memory like a sieve and risk blowing my ears when I go from home to portable as I never remember to adjust back...

updating now, haven't done this for a while, I skipped 1.3.7, I seem to remember it takes a fair old while and lots of patience and a long pause while it reindexes all the music

Firmware safely on, first thin I notice is that coverart has suddenly appeared for a lot of my music where it was previously missing...

For me, comparable with 1.2.7. variable incidence of clicks when set to native (bearable but not really gapless half the time), hopeless when set to 5 seconds (sounds like a scratch mix produced by low grade DJ for a couple of seconds before and after the change) and smooth but incomplete when set to 10 seconds (missing key notes at changeover).

 

Personally I prefer native...
