The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.5.0 - Page 1023

What about this one? It isn't microSD http://www.dx.com/p/sandisk-128gb-ultra-200x-sdxc-flash-memory-card-30mb-s-852289257#.VFGBBPmsUVc

If you read the specifications for the DX50, you will see that it supports a micro-sd only. How on earth would a normal size SD card fit?

Before the new 128 gb microsd cards were released, some owners used a ribbon adapter/cable to expand memory using sd cards with higher capacity.

I remember seeing that too. It should work fine, but I would stick with a 128GB microSD if you can!

The thing I had to do - launch ASIO4ALL with using Aune T1 and under ASIO4ALL control panel WDM Device list I had to disable iBasso input. Don`t know why it sets input ON by default. After that disable Aune T1 and use iBasso. It works now.

 

Also, setting iBasso @ 16/44 lost the lag between video and audio. Haven`t tried yet with HD DVD audio but movies seem ok. And KSP (Kernel Streaming Plugin) also works.

 

Edit:

Did some comparing between Aune T1 and iBasso as DAC while song playing and switching between devices at ASIO4ALL control panel using Fidelio X1. Actually I´m disappointed using iBasso as USB-DAC with cans. Aune T1 sound is by far better imho. With iBasso USB-DAC soundstage is much narrower, pushed fowards and more V-shaped. Also clarity, transparency and separation much better with T1. But this is with HO and I must test other Sound Unlocked settings also but I think it won`t help much. LO through speakers is good though. Same song, same quality (EAC FLAC copy, 16bit/44kHz, ~925kbps FLAC, Steven Wilson - Puncture Wound) but using iBasso as DAP sounds much better and very close to T1 through HO with Fidelio X1. Can someone comment why it`s so? SU eliminates all unneeded software processing and that`s why it sounds much better than iBasso as USB-DAC? Seems so.

 

So, in summary (at least with my Windows 7 x64 system):

1) Do not install USB-DAC driver with using iBasso provided installer or result might be immediate BSOD.

    Drivers need to be installed through device manager manually.

2) iBasso USB-DAC setup might be problematic with ASIO but once sorted out works ok. Soundwise, nothing special imho,     good sound but that`s it. Don`t bother to compare with onboard audio atm so can`t comment on that.

    KSP also works. 

3) For synchronized sound between audio and video You must set iBasso @ 16/44. Anything higher will cause very noticeable lag. Can be synchronized with playing software but I really don`t bother messing with that.


I have problems installing asio4all. it seemingly installs but after a minute there is this windows message that tells me it wasn't installed correctly... happened before too...

Does anyone know if the DX50 will be recharged when being used as a DAC ?

Just wanna follow up on this, do you have the JH13fp? Also, how bad is the high noise floor issue/hiss with your IEMs + DX50? 

Yes I do, no issue with high noise floor whatsoever, not that I can detect anyway, cheers.
