Or, they maybe could have made a device that didn't have failing components, even if it raised the cost of the device by some degree.

The DX100 was NOT intended to be a smartphone.  It was NOT intended to be an all purpose Android device.  It was designed to be a DAP.  It does that one function extremely well.

 

This has been discussed ad nauseum throughout this very long thread.

 

If you're looking for an all purpose, smartphone like device that you can use to browse the web and pair with your bluetooth devices and run your favorite apps, you need to look elsewhere.

You dont think $850 was enough? You'd rather pay more to have pointless(in music terms) bolt ons?

 

I'd rather have gone without all the cr@p and just had a top SQ basic music player with microSD, a small screen and a couple of physical buttons...and a few hundred dollars off the price.

Does anyone know the spec of the internal 64GB drive in the Dx100?

 

I have one of these

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008MDZU7A/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I was thinking about cracking the dx100 open and seeing if i could replace the internal 64Gb with this?

 

Also, I wonder if flashing the new disk with the ibasso factory reset firmware would be sufficient for it to detect and use the full 240gb??

 

Any thoughts?

The on-board flash memory is soldered on. Forget about upgrading.

The DAC inside is worth at least twice that, IMHO.

If you're looking for an all purpose, smartphone like device that you can use to browse the web and pair with your bluetooth devices and run your favorite apps, you need to look elsewhere.

If this is really true, then really, the Head-Fi FAQ should be updated to reflect this as it is misleading in its current form, and the advertising for "Supports Bluetooth and WiFi" should be removed from iBasso's web site.

I never said I wanted the DX-100 to be an all purpose Android device, I never said I wanted to browse the web and run my "favorite apps" with it. In fact, the only two apps I ever really ran was PowerAmp for MP3's (taken right from the Head-Fi FAQ), and Clean Master to close all the unnecessary tasks that ran and clean the caches.

I don't see what is wrong, or what somehow makes me a consumer undeserving of the device, if I want to be able to transfer files to and from the device with Wifi, and also want WiFi working so I can actually install and update the few apps I put on, and would like to be able to use Bluetooth with an audiophile quality pair of Bluetooth Headphones or speakers.

In short, your post is condescending, apologist, insulting, and snobby. I hate to have to say that, but I am really getting sick of being criticized because I expect an expensive product I bought with my own money to work as advertised, and I am also getting sick of being told I am doing things that I never said I was doing.

Meanwhile, I am left having to send in for a THIRD device due to wireless completely failing.

This place really seems unfair and unfriendly in fact, in light of the above, again... I hate to have to say.

Advertising for "Supports Bluetooth and WiFi" should be removed from iBasso's web site - It's something that does work, albeit hit and miss...agree they should just remove the reference and save the hassle

I don't see what is wrong, or what somehow makes me a consumer undeserving of the device, - not sure anyone actually said that...I might be wrong...if they did, that's out of order.
if I want to be able to transfer files to and from the device with Wifi, and also want WiFi working so I can actually install and update the few apps I put on, and would like to be able to use Bluetooth with an audiophile quality pair of Bluetooth Headphones or speakers.... Yes that would be nice - but it's not reliable, so forget it and move on

This place really seems unfair and unfriendly in fact....Ignore them or give as good as you get....BUT....going on and on about something that we all know doesn't work properly, really gets no one anywhere

harping on and on about the same things again and again only gets u ignored.  Move on and just enjoy the music.  Or sell it and stop wasting your time.

I'll buy this crappy, non working device for $50.

Sad to say, I think it's abundantly clear what the limitations of the DX100 are and that's been true since very early on. Use it simply as a music player and use a wire connection for data transfer and you'll most likely be fine. The more recent firmware upgrades have improved its performance to the point where basic operation is generally fine. However, try and do anything else and you're basically swimming against the current and will most likely end up frustrated.

 

It is what it is, warts and all, and personally I love mine. But the only thing I care about is the sound, everything else I just accept.

 

Whether its acceptable for a premium product is debatable, but the situation is quite clear if you read this thread - you pay your money and take your choice (as the saying goes).
