Apologise for the delay in replying.

 

I doubt we are able to choose the international version or the China version of the DX100. I guess if you are residing in China, then you should have no problem acquiring the China version of the DX100. I do know they have a separate department to handle the international version of the DX100. I only found out about this when I had to send in my DX100 for servicing due to a leak on the front cover. I contacted iBasso. They asked me for the warranty no. and when I gave them my number, they said they have no record of such a number :confused_face(1): So I was requested to send the DX100 together with the warranty card. When iBasso received my DX100, I was told that my DX100 is not the international version and that I should have contacted another department for servicing. To cut the story short, they repaired the DX100 and returned it promptly. Kudos to iBasso for their excellent service.

 

So is the China version different from the international version? I seriously doubt so. Someone could try asking iBasso directly ;) Below is the inside of my DX100

 

 

 

 

 

VisceriousZero and Rolk2, many thanks for your inputs on the sound difference(s) between the DX100 and HDP-R10. Just to clarify, both my units should have at least 200hrs of burn-in each (it should be significantly more). I can't confirm the exact burn-in hours as I do not keep track of the number of hours I operate my DAPs or amplifiers. But I always start with a minimum of 100hrs burn-in before using them. I have compared the DX100 and R10 quite extensively over 2 occasions and could not discern any significant differences between them. The iems used are the FitEar TG!334 and 335DW.

 

On another note, besides the DX100 having a slightly more powerful amp section, it also runs quite a bit hotter than the R10 during charging and playing at the the same time (37.5 vs 41 deg C). And yesterday, I allowed my R10 to operate for 8hrs continuously after a full charge. The battery indicator showed 50% battery life after 8hrs. Based on this observation, I am quite confident the R10 should be able to last at least 10hrs on a full charge.

We did not perceive any difference between them. More precisely, we were not able to say which was the DX100 and which was the HDP-R10. So I consider the difference is marginal to base the buy of one or the other just on the sound argument. The HDP-R10 has enough argument to be preferred, if you optimise android it is very reactive, no doubt that's I did.

Thank you Rudi and Alan for your critical listening.

You are welcome Rollk2

Did heard S EM 6 ?
post #633 of 1378
Hello,
Dear friends, I have just received my HDP R10 after it made the tour of the world and everything works perfect except that:
!! I only have 29,7 Gb internal memory as shown in settings-storage-NAND and 31.6 on WW 7 PC. That's strange and I went through all the resetting restarting procedures of course, useless. It behaves like a perfect 32Gb device.
Please help, anyone had seen this before?
Does it have 2x32Gb memory chips inside and one might not be working?
Is the software reset the same as hardware reset? Of course, tried them both with no result, one cannot make a 64 Gb out of a 32 Gb device, though it's written 64 on the back, that's for sure!smily_headphones1.gif
That kind of ruins all the joy, so please tell me any suggestion, idea or advice.
Can't be sent back as I am in my deployment in Afghanistan.
Anyone knows how the memory modules look on the main board so I might see a picture for comparison?
Thank you so much and have a great week end

Hi AndreiNicolae, did you try to format it ? Or did you do a manufacturer reset ? Good luck ;-)

Rudi, I own S-EM6 and the result with the HDP-R10 is the same than with the EM6 : incredible of realism with an impact that is both smooth and quick. Very impressive with a lot of DAP but none is at the level of the HDP-R10.

But now Rudi, at the instant, I'm using the HDP-R10 with the Graham Slee amp an my new favorite CIEM, the EM32 from EarSonics, a new flagship initially especially for guigs. And that is absolutely awesome, realist, organic, the best bass I've ever heard, the most beautiful voices I've heard, and the treble, the smoothest treble I've ever heard, detailed and harmonic, very we'll extended (you feel them at 10 meters !). 3 BA, 3 ways : it's not ingredients that do the taste, it's the receipt.

Hi Rudi,

Thanks for your recommendation on the Theorem 720. However, I am afraid I am allergic to "hissing" as I am using very sensitive iems. So the Theorem is out of the question for me. Maybe the Centrance M8 LX. Haha.


Cheers,



Alan

Andrei, did you try with another computer ? To my mind it's not a problem from your HDP-R10. Did you the memory with an app like ES file explorer ? Did you try to root it with Gingerbreak ?

Rudi, you will be happy with the S-EM6 that are to my mind one of very best universal iems on the market.

Thank you Rollk2

Could you please post some pictures from your S EM 6

Thank you, my friends, I also received a mail from Hibino,

Dear Mr. Andrei

Thank you for your email.

I am very sorry for the problem which you met.
Until now, we have received 2 cases about this problem.
For the reason, we are very agree with what you said, acturally.
There were some mistakes in the assembly process.

We must apologize to you for your HDP-R10.
Your idea will be very helpful for our future products checking.

Best regards,

Hibino iBasso Audio stuff

Hello, Sir, I have just received my unit HDP R10 after months of waiting and it works perfectly but it only has 29 Gb internal memory, verified on the unit and in Windows.
I do not intend to send it for guarantee, it is impossible, I am military in Afghanistan.
I just want to know if you ever seen this before and if it has like 2 internal memory chips and maybe one of them is not working, so is only a 32 one left, showing 29.
Thank you,
Andrei

So it seems there's nothing much to do, I will try the other suggestions though, ES file and Gingerbreak, thanks Rollk...and from the answer do you understand like me, that there are 2 memory chips and one not working, because to me is not really clear..
Thanks

I never observe that the internal memory was cut in two parts. Very weird and probably a result of a problem during the assembling process. Hope they take all in charge as you're in Afghanistan... you can buy a Sansa Clip Zip in waiting for your HDP-R10.

Rudi, my S-EM6 are with a friend, I just have my EM32 till next saturday. The 12th October we organise a meeting in Paris with another guys from our French forum Tellement Nomade. But you can see them on my Google Drive link : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0RMYxLPE8RQTjBWQkhBMzBXMWs/edit?usp=docslist_api

Frankly, I cannot understand how this could happen. I can't imagine them wrongly inserting a 32GB instead of a 64GB. The other possibility is that they are two 32GB cards and one of them is faulty for some reason. I feel you should find the opportunity to send the R10 back to Hibino for servicing since they seem to acknowledge the fault.
