iBasso DX100:24 bit for bit, PG 1> Reviews & Impressions, Downloads, VIDEO, NEW Firmware 1.4.2. - Page 785

post #11761 of 12674

I still don't understand it completely, what did poweramp try to charge ibasso for? Some copyright you say, but I would think that the only copyright involved would be the one over the API, and in that case wouldn't it be the other way around?

And in any case, if it is poweramp who wanted to charge ibasso, couldn't they please ask us customers wether we are willing to absorve that cost?

I gues it would probably be too much, but if that was the case then the idea would have never made sense.

 

The way I see it, if there was no charging involved, ibasso would win because many of it's customers wolud be much more satisfied with a better working product, and poweramp would win from what it charged for the app, which could be considerably more than what they charge for the regular poweramp.

The only obstacle I see, is ibasso's concern that it's API could be revealed to others through poweramp, but this could be easily prevented with some sort of confidentiality agreement.

after nearly two hrs demo btw ak120 and dx100.i finally pull the trigger on dx100.just cant forget its smoothness after audition.to me,dx100 does have some unique character where ak120 is some good sounding dap. actually i hv some consistent view on ak100and ak120 that they r lacking of something. guess i will be quite happy for a while.

sorry guys i havent been able to flip back so many pages but wats the best firmware version for dx100?

functionally - UI/gapless, the best firmware is 1.4.2 :) 

 

as for the sound, there are those who prefer 1.1.7, 1.2.7 etc so I guess you should try them out.

but first you need to know what firmware you are on when you did the demo.

can we flash firmware backwards?guess i will need to figure out how to flash fw first.
post #11765 of 12674

yes you can, its very easy :) just refer to this http://www.head-fi.org/a/ibasso-dx100-faq

 

also you should fix your music by renaming and sorting them by following this

One of the best "feature" of the DX100 is for the user to be able to change the sound according to the many firmwares available and in an easy no extra software need manner.

 

If only all these firmwares can be stored in the DX100, and allow user to select one like they would a custom EQ setting. that would be really something. smile.gif

It is likely a serious business proposition that is beyond outside influence such as a forum community to achieve this.

post #11769 of 12674

they promise to release the API long time ago, just wondering if we can hasten it a bit.

 

I think 1.4.2 is the last (I'm still hoping that it's not) firmware that iBasso would release for the DX100, so our "requests" is pretty much left to third party developers to fulfill redface.gif

So far ibasso has yet to mention the 1.4.2 being their last firmware update. Reckon it would require more time to refine what they already have done so far. I still believe the DX100 has some mileage to go in terms of sound improvement, since we've heard better coming from the Sabre DAC itself.

 

Would be nice if those developers do come around so we have more options. Though by then, we probably could expect the DX100 successor to be out.

Well,just tried dx100 lineout to pico slim=>heir 5.0+, sounded more transparent and pure than the headphone out, not too sure whether its just phsyco or not....the sound is rounded in a nice way and gives more body.

Straight out of phone out gives brighter sound and probably sounds more dynamic but a bit thinner.
Anyway,anyone tried some good portable amp which takes line in ?
Maybe it's not burnt in,dx100 is a bit shy of bass. Maybe an amp will bring it out?

Am using the DX100 > Toxic Cable Silver Poison IC > ALO rxMK3-B > Twaq v2 > JH13 pro.

 

This is the closest to a HiFi sound on a portable i've come across. And my current favorite set-up. smile.gif

Wouldn't the mk3b introduce hiss to the jh13?

Yes. There is a small hiss introduced. But the sound coming from the combo is worth it. L3000.gif
