The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.5.0 - Page 267

post #3991 of 15221
1.16 has better clarity and soundstage for me but it made almost deaf a few times so I can't go back
post #3992 of 15221
Please any suggest or comparison between iBasso D12 vs Headstage Arrow 4G, for my DX50?

Please share.

I have done few page back





Source : DX50 as transport
Dac / Amp : iBasso D 12 mod with HiFlight kits
Iem : Earsonic S EM6
Cable : Venture Craft Coax RCA to RCA , use JVC adapter RCA to mini

SQ : the improvement is excellent , like DX 50 born for D12 , D12 has the best synergy with DX 50 biggrin.gif
More balance SQ , high more extended and detail .
Mid more clear and clean , bass more body and impact
Overall better pronounce , I hear piano more body

My IMO

Do you find any SQ difference in using the DX50 and AK120 as a transport?

With D12 you have more function through the coax in connect to your DX 50 coax out .
With Arrow 4 G you can use line out and hp out

Tonight I will do comparison and will post here

I haven't done the comparison yet
From my home audio the coax out is better than optical line out .
I will inform you later on Lin

I hope they sort out the battery indicator with the next firmware update.

 

That's what they told me but again, no exact words as to how, not to mention exactly when.

received the Dx50 today.  So far sounds good to me with my intruder.

I hope they improve the SQ with the next firmware. Does anyone else think 1.20 sounds muddier than the earlier versions?
post #4002 of 15221
My 5th batch just arrived, my wife said she did not have to sign for it like others said they had to. I cant wait to get home and try it.
post #4003 of 15221

I feel this 5th batch sound warm side rather than muddy.  However, this is just out of the box.  I need to let it play for awhile.

DX100
RWAK100
DX50

However, I am seriously considering selling the RWAK100 now and using the DX50/T1 combo for work. If I get one of those Meenova's the DX50 can hold just as much music as the RWAK100. The T1 brings the DX50 on par with the base DX100 and sounds better than the base RWAK100.

ah mate, congrats, so you a believer now like me? yes, T1 shocked me considering its very modest price, one of the best value for money gear purchases i made.

about DX50 bugs and freezes, i wonder if buyng DX50 you risk becoming to iBasso what guinea pigs are to scientists? reading through all reported problem pains especially when sound quality reportedly so good.

Source : IBasso DX 50 through line out with maxx volume
Dac / Amp : IBasso D12 HiFlight mod
Amp : Headstage Arrow 4 G
Iem : Earsonic. SEM 6

IBasso D12 win again Headstage Arrow 4 G pair with Earsonic SEM 6

High :
Arrow 4 G :
high : slightly breiter
Mid : more forward , clear and clean
Bass : very good bass impact , faster speed than D12
Separation : on par
Soundstage : D12 has wider soundstage than Arrow 4 G

D 12 with HiFligt mod
High : is enough and very good detail
Mid : more analog than 4 G , not as forward as my 4 G
Bass : very good bass impact , bass speed a bit slower , but is more natural
Separation : on par
Soundstage : D12 has wider soundstage than arrow 4 G

D12 is slightly warmer and analog SQ than arrow 4 G

This is my IMO
