Guess I know what I'm getting with my next paycheck.

So, does anyone, for those of us who decided to stick with the 50, know when are they releasing the new firmware? I'm looking forward to try my DX50 as a USB DAC and then i'll see if i upgrade or not...

post #12558 of 15007

I have the DX50 with DUNU DN1000
My question is whether sounds much better with an amp
?

If the sound improves a lot So what EMP (or DAC) do you recommend for me?

i guessed it would be out with the dx90 release, but it seems it will be delayed a bit

Your Roxanne look great!

I certainly like the sound of my DX50 with a JDS Labs C5 amp.

How's it sound?  Been considering getting something like that for portable use and the O2 for home. 

post #12563 of 15007

It sounds "good."  I used it with my C3, and when I got the DX50 I just plugged it in and got happy.  :gs1000smile:

 

The player sound fine without it, I just think running the C5 from line out makes it better. YMMV.  Though I've seen others here that seem to like it.  

 

Note:  I listen while walking, so if you mostly listen while in your chair, you may have a different impression of amping the DX50.

Oh I'll be using mine on the go as well, been trying to think of how I'll carry it.  It shipped today though. :bigsmile_face:

I use the thin 3M Scotch Dual Lock tape (velcro-like).  Works great.

Planning on slipping mine into a leather case, and I don't think I could put that on it.

post #12567 of 15007

Nope.  That's why I didn't buy it a case.  I carry mine around in a belt bag (actually an ammo bag) I found on eBay for about $7.  Got a flap that snaps closed and enough room for some kleenex and my iems if I want to stash them.  I carried my C3 combo the same way, never an issue, and the C3 looks new, as does the BH (and now the C5).  I didn't like using thick rubber bands, it seemed to torque the C3/BH and gave me issues with the iem jack (I had the Ç3 in a silicon case for that).  I removed the bands, issue went away.  So I moved to the Dual Lock, which I like the look of.

Hello olddude,

 

I use the DX50 at this moment mostly with BH2 & Grado PS500. Is there a big improvement in SQ when you use the C5 instead of the BH in combination with the DX50? I was thinking of orderering the C5 but am not sure about it...

post #12569 of 15007

Hi-  Well, I can't really say.  I swapped out my C&C BH for the C5 on my Colorfly C3 and there was a huge difference.  Quality of sound and spatial placement (bass placement was VERY noticiable), added height in soundstage, etc. were improved with the C5.  I've never even tried my C&C with the DX50, as I'm selling it.  But I can say that I tried the DX50 from headphones out and then from the C5 and there certainly is a difference.  How much I can't say, as I spent one minute on headphones out and the past week from the C5 jack.  Sounds awfully good to me.

post #12570 of 15007

OK, I guess that in 2 months time (when I will have the budget for it) I will order the DX90, a 128gb microsd card & the C5 as well...the combination on your photo looks like they're made for each other, at least shapewise...

Thanks!
