Just download apk file (current!) from http://rasher.dk/rockbox/android/ (pick 320x480 one).
Install it with adb tool (adb install apk-filename-path) (dont forget to enable usb debugging and plug your hdp to computer :) I guess I dont have to tell what adb is), you can install any other apps this way (i installed different home launcher and some more).
i couldn't imagine how much worse DX100 is as my R10's battery drops like crazy, maybe the worst device that i've had in term of battery power....The UI is far less responsive than my smarphone, I could imagine myself tossing DX100 in wall any minutes lolz
overall downgrade in SQ ? Same drivers, same chip, same ears ?
You've to optimize it in rooting it, then in removing some useless apps. The touchscreen seems to be a responsive one, far from results of a capacitive one.
Same drivers, chip and ears but software and its processing way can have an effect on the sound reproduction. That being said, obviously I didn't try it on R10 since I don't have it.
Don't be confused with the configuration of the volume of the app and the digital sound treatment. Many of the users have heard sound differences between the apps but many times it was just the volume...
I didn't do a volume matched test so you might be right but I remember reading that different programs can sound different from each other.
Btw did you sell your R10?
I don't think you have ever used any digital apps on iphone? I have used so far, Neutron, Radsone, Accudio...they all have way of processing the digital audio, and as the result, there are less slightly or even more changes in the way of sound. They are more than just simple equalizer.
I didn't realize it would downgrade the sound, is there a review somewhere I can read about this and how is the sound degraded with the addition of Rockbox? I don't mind the stock UI as long as it sound great.
I don't have the R10 but I have the DX100 and the DX90. Listening to them on UE18 Pro and they are close but ultimately the DX100 is better. DX100 has greater clarity and layering, the DX90 has better staging. It would depend on what phones you use to listen on I suspect.
For portability and swappable battery I would take the DX90 but for pure sound quality the DX100, just my 2 cents.
I used to have DX100 and now I have triple of:
MA9 (balanced, custom mod)
And I must say, R10 is best, HM901 comes close but just HM901 doesnt have that space, simply doesnt. MA9 on other hand, well, with enchanced balanced card is a different beast and hard to compare but same quality, Im burning now the balanced card for MA9 so later can give better feedback.
If you plan to buy any of those three: HDP R10 is simply best, lowest noise, best bass, best space, HM901 is good too but much more "front facing", you get slapped in face with it :) with HDP r10 ground is shaking and you get shivers...
I test them mostly with JH16 IEMs :)
I doubt that DX90 with 4V battery and ****ty opa1611 can come even close to those (i know opa1611 ver well).
Its just the voltage and the opa1611 in DX90 that downgrades a lot.
