intresting discovery

 

even though there is no cell phone chip on the DX100

 

2g/3g is turned on by default. This is the  wireless network under location and security. Turn that bad boy off...


Is this possibly a/the big battery killer ?

 

Thanks for all your devotion figgie

well not sure.

 

THere is no cell chip so no power wasted there. perhaps wasted CPU cyles. Also GPS is also turned on... another thing that needs to be killed.

 

Looking at the DX100 i have.

 

504MB  483 Available. no pops. No clicks...

Pretty much select the auto numbering wizard and check "Leading zeros for tracknumbers". Then you input this %track% %title% in the icon listed just below the tools tab. By doing this it will take your track number and Title and combine them automatically renaming your filename so it will show up as 01 Everybody instead of 1. Everybody, etc. Just be sure to have your files properly in order from 1,2,3,4 listed in mp3tag as the auto numbering will rename your track numbers otherwise.

Regarding file sorting, I did follow the guide - batch rename my flac and mp3 to 01, 02, ....  however, it's not 100% that the DX100 would read them in order since I did have problems with unplugged albums I have (Jay-z/Korn).  You still need to use programs like  CopyInOrder or DriveSort to fix the ordering issue after renaming -- something how a device saves the short names and long names of each file.

maybe you can try freezing some services using titanium backup to know which services to exclude in the new firmware smily_headphones1.gif

 

also, just curious, if it is possible to turn off some of the outputs thru software? e.g. optical and coaxial

This seems to be absolutely the case. I just loaded a couple more albums on and their album art popped up automatically after a few minutes - no playing of tracks necessary.

I recommend using "Root Uninstaller" to remove some of those useless system apps. "SetCPU" is also pretty useful to down-clock the player under certain conditions.

the iRiver AK100 is epically failing as I type.. the winner and still undisputed heavy weight champion in the world of DAPs is.... the Ibasso DX100! biggrin.gif

I suspect you guys are already doing this but if I had one of these, I'd make sure that my bluetooth and WiFi were off as well when only listening. If it's got an airplane mode I'd use it.

post #9684 of 12738

Yep I uninstalled bluetooth and disable WIFI unless I need to download something. Otherwise you can hear little crackly-pops while listening to music. Definitely gets the horns to come out when listening to music. evil_smiley.gif

I was reading about an amplifier on Audiogon that I never heard of. When I went on their site, I was surprised to see free 24/96 downloads. I wanted to share this with all your DX-100 owners. The music is well recorded jazz that is on the warm and natural side. The stand up bass to me is a little too close to the mike as it can sound overpowering at times. I hope you enjoy these. Just go to this website and go to downloads and then recordings.  Happy holidays Jeff      http://www.bakoonproducts.com/

Great info! Thanks, I am sure there are people here who will enjoy the music.

I have been using the DX and the fi.Q for the last few days, leaving them playing constantly and I have to say, the sound is even better. Great clarity and just plain good sound.

No they are using the volume control that is built into the Sabre DAC. This is inherent to the Sabre design. So everything is being done in the digital domain and IMO to the best effect.

For direct headphone setup, which one do you prefer?
