I'd say run it in for 250 hours and see where that take you. The Studio V for me is very cold and detailed. At least it is that way with all the IEMs I've thrown at it. I felt the same even about the older model although the bass was even leaner on that model. Generally speaking devices that I've used with Wolfson DACs had more bass emphasis, even a bit more lose if you will. The Sflo2 was an exception to that though.
 

I haven't quite used the Studio V for 250 hours. I'm a bit sceptical of the whole burn in thing, however, and I don't really expect the sound to change with longer use. I will keep the Hisound. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that I wouldv'e wanted something which perfectly fitted my taste for a $500 spend. I don't want to make a more significant mistake with the DX100. I guess you were accurate when you said that I like a "rolled-off" bass sound. I feel that when sound reaches down below 40-50 Hz, it makes things a bit "dark" sounding, which I don't like.

Hmm. Well if the Studio V had any less bass IMO it would be way too bright. Its already approaching that for me as is. Any brighter would be a no go. Sounds like you are a treble-head. Nothing wrong with that just I can only take so much for so long lol. The DX100 definitely has more bass emphasis yet it is considered a "reference DAP" and it indeed is. H20 had mentioned the C4+ I think suffers from rolled off bass which gives it hyper detail in the treble and mids? That may be to your liking if anything. Maybe you'd give that DAP a whirl?

Maybe changing headphones would be more appropriate?

The C4 is much warmer sounding than the DX100, almost tube-like in its presentation.

Well, you did get the Japanese version. I guess in the Settings, you brush the screen to the right and it is in the upper left, there should be a language setting.

Well actually I might have just skipped them and gone for the 8As although I'm still doing that now :). The only reason I've opted for the RWA AK100 is because Vinnie modded it to fix the 22 ohm output impedance issue so it works fine with Sensitive IEMs and as an end result is more detailed and open sounding than the AK100. So its a win win. Plus the portability, dual micro SD slots, decent UI, the works :). I'll post some impressions when I get it though.


So about them dual slots

 

Whats the max size card in each ?

 

i read a review saying with two slots you can expand up to  96 gigs

 

Thats only 48 gig per slot , is this correct ?

 

Cheers

Should i be using the 1/8th adapter for iems and plug it into the 1/8th jack of the ibasso? or should i just use the 1/4 jack on the ibasso for iems. I think the 1/8th might be better.

If you want a cold analytical sound i recommend the Cowon J3, to some it may sound neutral but not to me. I find it cold and little bit thin. It's a really good sounding dap, and i found it more versatile than my studio 3rd. and you can tweak the sound signature to your liking. some find the Cowon J3 warm, some find it cold and a bit neutral but i think it depends on your cans and your ears.

The Cowon j3 and studio 3rd was my first 2 Dap. I like the studio more because of its driving power. but i think the cowon has a more refined sound and more versatile with alot of headphones
