Sorry i'm on the 179 page and I didn't remember this preview frown.gif

wasnt a formal review. I believe when they started first shipping DX100's people tested it's power output by using a set of HD 800's and some other headphone simultaneously. I thought it was early on in it's life.

So, does anyone who what CPU/RAM is in there? From what I have read it appears to be an 800Mhz chip, anyone know if it's a Cortex A8, Cortex A9, etc? Or does anyone know if it is like a TI OMAP, Quallcom Snapdragon/Scorpion, or Samsung Exynos, or something else? Is it single or dual core? How much system flash is there (or does the system just use some of the 64GB of user flash?) 

 

Sorry if this is covered earlier in the thread, I have searched, but have not seen this exact info. 

 

Thanks!

Hey guys, anyone tell me how to update the firmware of this DAP?

 

Update: Ah, nevermind, got it!

 

First Impressions: It's really a large DAP, can't fit into my pocket but the sound is good. Also, I am experiencing warming when I play around the settings while playing the music. Is this normal? Also I can here a slight noise even if I set to low gain with my iems.

Can you hear this noise during music playback? I don't mind a very slight hiss as long as I can't hear it in low volume music passages or at low volumes.

I do and it sounds quite decent although a little thin.. but sounds better when I go DX100 - Lisa III with LLP and HD800.

post #7120 of 12674

Yes, only during music playback...also I confirm to hear a popping sound once I put the iems to the headphone socket. Quite a nuisance really...it only makes it up once I hear the music.

 

Do all of this goes away if I updated the firmware?

post #7121 of 12674

I don't notice any major popping noises when plugging into my unit? I do get a little crackle pop but its very small and something I get with all my amps in general. But I do not suggest plugging in your IEMs before fully powering on the DX100 and the same goes for when turning it off. Just stop playback of music and unplug before shutting down as it makes a huge pop which I feel could be bad for the IEMs.

 

The latest firmware has the best sound quality. It is the most neutral and balanced IMO. There is no need for EQ IMO with the latest update.

Ok! Thanks for the info...that's good to hear! they can still make better sound quality even if it already sounds good without EQ.

post #7123 of 12674

Well depending on which firmware you have. I think it was 2 updates ago where there was an issue with the EQ. EQ off sounded a bit too forward (boosted) while the EQ sounded too thin. Now EQ off sounds just right but EQ on still sounds too think for my taste (even more so than the older update). I'm not complaining though as I rather not use EQ period if it's not necessary. Just means more time to enjoy my music and less time stressing out to get a proper sound on every track :P.

If you're wondering if the DX100 can power the HD800, it can. It just so happened that today after work I visited a local audio store and I was able to listen for the first time, headphones in the $1000+ range :D. I tried the LCD-2, LCD-3, T1, HD800, and some entry pair of STAX with the DX100. The DX100 definitely had the power to drive all of them but then again I've never listened to them plugged into an amp with plenty of power. But man was I excited to finally try the headphones that I always see people talk about on here and after 2 hours of trying them out, my personal favorite had to be the LCD-2/LCD-3. :x Unfortunately I didn't try the LCD-2 and LCD-3 back to back so I didn't have the opportunity to compare the two.

I tried it earlier, along with an HD700... Both can be "driven" properly, although im not so sure if the DX100 able to made them "sing". Also, hd700 and hd800 doesn't match well with the DX100 IMO, specially the 700.
