No by turning up the volume you are still using the amp section which means more power drawn when you turn the volume up.

Rozeqloud, The music in my DX100 comes from ripped cd's (with my laptop) and HD Tracks. Could I use an Oppo player to get a better SQ from the cd's and put it on the DX100?

 

Thanks.

No. Upsampling does not improve content. If you want your CDs to sound better. Pay attention to the ripper used. Properly setup DBpoweramp, EAC, or XLD (MAC) are fine choices.

 

This part will be controversal so try for yourself. I still prefer wav over flac but the information is not changed so there is no theorehtical difference. I don't find that converting HDtrax flac to wav ahead of time as noticable as going the from wav to flac with files we've generated. I suspect that their a2d process could perhaps be improved though it's certainly fine. If you use flac for size and tags, try compression '0' for least processor load.

HDR-R10 firmware v8.0.2 is out, here's the download page:

http://www.hibino-intersound.co.jp/ibasso_audio/3348.html

 

dunno whether DX100 can use this or not...

post #9709 of 12772

I would not suggest DX100 users try this. It says once updated it cannot be downgraded. So don't risk it.

As this firmware is for the R10, I wonder it says cannot be downgraded because there's no v8.0.1 download for downgrade.

I wonder if we can use the old DX100 firmware to downgrade after installing v8.0.2

post #9711 of 12772

I don't know. That is why I suggest against it. If you try it and it works then keep us updated. Just I'd hate for something to go wrong and you end up with a brick in your hands ;(. ibasso did say the new firmware is almost ready for the DX100 so maybe it is right around the corner for us as well.

Hi

 

I have to say yes you can . But i have no experience yet LOL. i ordered Oppo on a sat afternoon ,it was here Monday . The cables and adapters i need are crawling here from somewhere :(

 

i have played some Peter gabriel sacds and they sound great ,but still cheap cables so far .

 

So do you mean u want to connect DX100 to your Oppo ? i imagine line out from DX100 to  Oppo should work , but you may be better off using USB in to Oppo

Just put those same files on a USB stick or HDD .

 

This dream machine has so many options ,but im speaking from almost no experience till all the accessories arrive

 

You will also need some amplification , tho the Oppo 105 has a built in headphone amp . The jury is out on the quality tho

 

i hope i gave you some help

post #9713 of 12772

Thank you Rozeqloud.

 

Well what I really would like to know is if the Oppo can be use to rip cd's conected to a laptop, then that ripped files put in the DX100. 

 

If that is possible maybe we could get better SQ files.

 

By the way Goodvives, I use J River MC18 in my laptop to rippe cd's and will rippe a pair of cd's in WAV, I've notice that the bit rate is 1411 in Flac is around 900. Maybe that help to a better SQ, a little bit of depth or 3D sensation.

 

Hope you understand me.

Took a peak at the HDP-R10 player. Same player with different tweaks. Language is all japanese centered.

 

The lightning fast peek at the HDP-R10 firmware,that hardware does support disabling the non-used outputs.

post #9715 of 12772
So does that mean we can load this firmware safely on the DX100? Also can we revert back to a DX100 firmware if we want?
post #9716 of 12772
So there is no english? You also mentioned you can cut off outputs on this firmware? Does that mean extended battery life?

Sounds like your compression rate is near 0 level but you can check in your settings. Try a trial of DBpoweramp set up per their instructions and see if you don't prefer it's rips. J.River is a great library keeper but not my fav for playback or rips but then I don't use a PC for playback.

Lee

 

personally I wouldn't.


There are a couple of libraries that are in the HDP that are not in the DX100.

 

with that said.

 

BOTH the HDP and the DX100 have a module for DSD decoding and it is enabled in both.

 

The DX100 DSD module is 10/18. The HDp-R10 is 12/12.

 

I might be able to pul the version of the whiskey player from the HDP-R10 but not sure how that would work on th Dx100 if at all.

Big negative

 

the PC has the horsepower to make sure that things like offsets, error correction etc are making sure that everything that is on the CD is in the file. i have had CD's that were unreadable by most every CD player out there and was able to "revive" the bits digitally using...

 

EAC + Accuraterip, there is no better.
