iBasso DX100:24 bit for bit, PG 1> Reviews & Impressions, Downloads, VIDEO, NEW Firmware 1.4.2. - Page 869

post #13021 of 13026

I'm on 1.2.7 stock FW. I consider it as giving spacious and neutral sound with slight warmth. Would clear sound Russian FW give spacious, and neutral SQ without this warmth?

Sound Explosion is a combination of Optima (all the tuning features ) + Clear sound ( those he tuned the sound)

Optima is those firmware he keeps the stock sound but optimize UI, system ...etc

Clear sound : he modified for each of them

Sound explosion v1, v2 , v3, v4 .each of them has different sound tuning.

I know many people will disagree with me, but I do not really care about the size of my DAP since I carry it only from room to rooms or in the garden under the patio ;)

 

So, for me, my ideal DAP will be: 

 

  • up to 1000 grammes is OK  (big battery)
  • +6 "  OLED screen
  • 1 To SSD + 1 USB port for USB Stick
  • UBER DAC (R2R ? ;-)
  • Balanced Headphone AMP with 1/4 SE jack and XLR balanced (discrete or... tube ? :-)
  • Line-out & Digital-Out
  • Wifi + Android based for TIDAL & QOBUZ

 

Indeed, I  would be willing to go with a larger player if it meant better sound quality. Again for me the two priorities are 1) sound quality and 2) storage space (and a pleasant UI), not the "pocketability"

 

and.... I know what you think : :deadhorse:

yes, it is

I suggest you do a listening test for yourself, it's hard to describe sound characteristics of each firmware, they are very interesting. I can only know that V3 is good for metal genre and V2 is for jazz, blue with more bass and little muddy, v-iem is too bright btw
