I appreciate it AnakChan, the problem is, the unit isn't recognizing that it is a USB device. When plugged into a pc..nothing happens. But I'll give it a try.

I'm waiting to hear from iBasso on this.

icefalkon try and contact sorensiim. He knows how to activate the emergency installer on the ibasso. I had to do this one time when I bricked my unit. It worked as well. You don't need to connect to the PC to do this to my knowledge.... Maybe it will restore functionality to your device. But expect all your music and files to be wiped.

Thanks bro. I just emailed him

I am using iTunes to transfer songs with aif format to DX100.  All files are attached with album art; however, the album art is not shown on DX100.   Anyone knows how to fix it? 

 

Thank you very much in advance!!!!

Well iBasso gave me a fix...trying it now. If that doesn't work. They're going to replace the unit with a new one.

 

Here goes nothing...lol

Which would you guys recommend...1.3.7 or 1.4.2? 

 

I think I read 1.3.7 was better....am I wrong?

No one can tell you what is wrong or right lol. At the end of the day it is up to you :). Did you get your player working? :)

OK..got it booted...

 

But the volume is ridiculously low. I'm going to full charge it and see what happens. If it's not "fixed"...back to China it goes and I'll take their offer for a brand new replacement.

Check the volume setting in >Settings>Sound. I thought this only affected 3rd party players but its awhile since I changed that and don't have my DX with me.

Hey guys...just finished with iBasso. They're sending me a brand new unit tomorrow...er...today their time. I have my old unit all packed up and ready to priority mail to them.

Talk about a pain in the ass. I just might sell the new unit to fund a RWAK100...not sure.

Does anyone have both still?

Yes I still have the DX100 & RWAK100. I'm wondering if you're just unlucky. I'm still on my 1st (and only) DX100 since Feb last year.

Yes, I have both also. And like AnakChan, my DX100 hardware is just fine. That said, the firmware has misbehaved from time to time requiring resets and so on. Although some others prefer earlier FW versions for SQ, 1.4.2 has been the most stable for me, has fixed most features to be running as one would expect except for the dumb way playlists work, and I'm perfectly happy with SQ.

As for how I use both though? I think the DX sounds better especially with headphones but I use the RWAK100 as a portable should be... Out and about.

If ultimately you can only have one, and SQ is more important than portability then the DX is superior. And despite Android's failings, I enjoy the option to stream Pandora, Rhapsody and Tune-In from time to time which the AK cannot do. Although you can do these from any smartphone, none that I know of will drive high impedance headphones as successfully as the DX.

For the record, I'm typing this listening to my RWAK100 through Amperiors from my campsite at South West Rocks watching the waves roll in... This is what portable DAPs ARE FOR!
