Maybe I am the last to revert back to 1.17 but I am so glad that I have now. The difference is not small. The enjoyment has come back....I had gotten away from the DX100 because of this. I no longer evaluate things definitively but whether it sounds good..and this sounds good again.
thanks for all the discussions concerning this issue.
No worries slwiser. I feel the exact same way. But I may just be overly critical in general. If it don't meet my expectations I'm gonna bitch about it. Especially at this price range ;). I did try to get use to 1.2.3 but just couldn't. From the very first time I listened to it it just sounded off. Glad to hear I'm not alone on this thinking. I still do look forward to possible fixes in the future. But i won't hold my breathe and will just live with this firmware as long as I can keep this sound :P.
