We've fallen down the pit of madly expensive gear. When it gets lonely down here, we post reviews.

..well done iBasso! everything went absolutely perfect! :)

 

DX100 was shipped last thursday from Hong Kong, arrived in Zurich Switzerland today.

And they even put in the right power cable for Switzerland (it's different from EU Plug..)

 

that's quite amazing guys! :) not even german companies give the proper power cable....

I do not like Linkin park, actually I can not stand them. They definetly have a unique sound! The "talking" of the lead singer is unnerving to my ears. lol.

THis is a guess

 

the reseting of the DSP is a very high power tax.

 

If my calculations are right, with the LESS resetting of the DSP it shoud extended battery longevity by a bit. How much is hard to say as that also relies on the coding.

Chester probably have one of the most versatile vocals I ever heard. :)

Read on AV Watch there is a upcoming firmware update for the Japanese HDP-R10 to remove Google Play app, for sake of "maintaining high sound quality and stability". Not sure if this will be applied to DX100 but all R10 units from 30th of Nov will be with this firmware version.

You might want to look up Skunk Anansie and their lead singer Skin...

 

The stuff most know them for: 

 

A live performance of "You'll Follow Me Down":

 

 

...and she's even better live. They really should hook up with Dr. Chesky and HDTracks as she is clearly limited by the CD medium.

I knew about this some time ago , as Hibino was requesting a better SQ/software .
Will it come to the DX100? this is what I am hoping for (at least in the coming month or 2).

So they are saying part of the android software is compromising the sound quality. Very interesting. Wonder if it could actually get better lol. :)

That will be a year without a fantastic DAP that IMHO no other can currently match.  Yep, they had some major glitches in the firmware when they first released it.  And it's still got some things that are annoying.  However, the sound is top notch.  In my opinion, the great sound outweighs the remaining minor issues.  iBasso is listening to and responding to its customers.  They ship quickly, the build quality is good, the packaging is good, it's easy to update, it's easy to transfer music to it, it can drive damn near any headphones.  Just make sure your tags are in really good shape before you transfer any music to the player.  Also, it doesn't deal well with albums with the same name but from different artists (i.e. 2 "Greatest Hits" albums may end up being played as one, so you have to name them differently).  Again, my opinion, there are no current show stopper issues.

 

These days, it seems like anything with a sophisticated OS has some "issues" when first released.  Remember Windows 3.0? blink.gif
