By the same argument, have you questioned the sanity of people who bought iPod classic 160gb, especially when most of them use mp3 128-320kbps formats which amount up to whoknowshowmany hours of music?

For convenience and bigger choice whithout having to swap media. And especially for hires flac where one single album can easily run into several GB

post #933 of 12739

how many albums (1 gig) per day?

I listen to my player while walking 2.5 hrs  and taking trains 30 mins each day. Thats 3 hrs minimum and I am not counting the time at home or while shooting basketball and the 32 gigs external and 16 internal can last easily 2 weeks or more without needing to put more in. So you plan to listen to 64 gis or more per week?

Well, earlier in the thread and before the DX100 was released, we have done a lot of exercises to pass the time. One of the exercise is how many songs can a 64g hold in hires, and if you search earlier posts, you will see a 64g may give you only a few hundred tracks. And If I pay for the ability to play hires music bit for bit, I am going to give myself the best experience possible. Will this be a reason good enough? Besides the constant swapping of cards will increase the chances of damaging or loosing a card. Even if I have to keep an additional card with me, an additional 64g will bring my DX100's capacity to 192g.

How much time in a day do I have to listen to music? The question is not how much time I'll have in a day, it is the choices. Even if I only have one hour to listen to music, I would like to be able to choose from a bigger library than a small one. It is exactly because I don't usually have a lot of time, so when I do, I want to have the best experience, and hires and choices will contribute to achieving that goal.

If you fly from Miami to Hong Hong, That is a good 16 to 18 hours of air time. Especially when I travel transpacific, I hate to constantly choosing, selecting, copying, swapping music, I just want to have a good listening session. Especially if I disappear into some music worlds, I do not like to come back to reality and find that one song that is on another card. That is call mood management :-).

Sounds like you want a portable computer or a player you can attach a hard drive.

You've got my ideas accurately. We listen to music not just to put sound in our ears but to find music to stir our soul.

And that is why it would have been nice if the dx100 could have acted as usb dac

24/192 album is around 1.2gb's and it seems that 24/96 is about the same. The internal 64gb and micro card holding 32gb would give around 90gb of storage. Being conservative at 70 albums is a lot of music but I don't go with that much hirez and use a lot of well recorded 16/44.1 in lossless at around 400 to 600 mb's for each album. Works well for me and the cards are pretty tough. 

 

I am finding that after 300 hours of play time the DX100 continues to improve in sound, with more air around instruments and more micro detail. Very nice. I have around 500 hours on the unit now and couldn't be much happier. I also notice the stage width has gotten wider. 

 

The HE-500 to my ear is a synergistic pairing. I like the HE-500 with the DX100 more than any other combination.

As android has its own file manager would it be possible to attach an external hard drive directly to the player and move files onto it without using a computer.

Great question, somebody please test it out quickly, if we can put a USB thumb drive to the USB input of the DX100 and for it to be recognised, I can put a 256g thumb drive into to the DX100. I'll have a 384g in my hand. I know, I know, that will drive a lot of people crazy ;-).

By the way, John, you are still calling DX100 LX100 in your post above. Can you hurry up and finish the book you are writing? biggrin.gif

Short in brain. lol

 

I have a USB to USB adapter somewhere but I don't know where. That would allow a micro card reader usb to the usb to micro usb to try this but I have too many wires. And some are shorting.

The promised firmware update is now available for download under the "Download" section on iBasso website

 

Update: Think they are still uploading it. The file size is different. Probably need to wait for another 20-30 mins or so.

Thanks for the update. 

 

So who knows how you update the firmware? Android is new to me and while I can update firmware for many things, I have never done this with Android.
