1. i never had the dead(at least no display) dap issue before 1.42 ( its always been slow as heck to boot,esp. after any even minor
changes). i suspect it may be a 1.42 issue ?
--> could be, we can only find out if iBasso can replicate it.
2. Am i imagining deeper/more bass on 1.27 vs 1.42 ?
--> I prefer 1.2.7 since it's more open sounding. 1.4.2 sounds like a wolfson and to be honest, why should a Sabre sound like a wolfson ;)
3. Does a root affect sound , or dap in any way negative , like ability to play 24/192 etc .
rooting does not affect sound from what I experienced. but it helps me with the UI, my DX100's UI performance is acceptable now - losing the uber slow launcher and replace with zeam launcher.
I also installed media scan root to disable the media scanning on boot. ;) and I'm hoping to install the xposed framework to add more functionality.
