The problem is that input and output impedance aren't really just one number, they're a curve. BAs are also more likely to feel affects of too high an impedance. Marley, your iems probably have a specific frequency at which their input impedance is lower, and that's the problem. Unfortunately, I have heard that the same is the case with the UM Merlins that I have on order.

Go into a recovery mode by holding the power on and volume + buttons together for few seconds until you see the start up screen, it will then go to the blue recovery screen. Then using the - volume button navigate to the wipe data/factory reset. It will perform a factory reset and will allow you to boot. I got the exact same issue when I upgraded to 1.1.2.

It's a long thread so please pardon me if it was mentioned before and hope this would also help prospective buyers like me (when i was considering it) have an idea what works best with it. Thanks in advance.

Search the thread. Votes for W4r, TDK BA200, and several Earsonics have been posted.

True, do you know the exact output impedance, for the lowest setting that is?

I cancellled my order with Ibasso and placed an order with Headphoniaks in Spain for 210euros,works out a small bit more than buying direct from Ibasso but when in the EU I would nearly rather pay a small bit extra knowing you wont get stung by customs charges when its imported into your country...

 

Another reason I preferred an EU seller is that if anything did go wrong with the dap,I could just send it to them and have it replaced,refunded etc..

 

Hope this helps...

Thanks, but I already have the DX50. That spanish store is interesting though, I see they also sell JDS products. I am somewhat interested in the C5. But people claim it's warm sounding.

That probably is a part of the problem yes, however, I do not feel like there's something wrong with the frequency response. It's mainly the lack of imaging/seperation and soundstage, and thus clarity.

Very interested in your thoughts on compatibility and synergy with the 4.Ai.

 

Look forward to your review.

Yes - as I said my only two attempts at fixing have been a battery out and a reset via recovery mode where the screen was still screwy.

 

Not looking forward to sending this back and the possibility of all the customs issues with the replacement. Incidentally, this was a 5th batch item.

This picture looks funny :|

I mean, the text is tilted, but the "reflection" of the text on the display (trace amount of light or whatever that is) also tilted. I'm not 100% sure, but shouldn't those reflections be strictly straight and not tilted it's not like the reflections are part of the bug, it's just a characteristic of LCD screens, or am I wrong?

@Pottsy2, try to update the firmware again.

Looks to me an issue with the display unit. Initially I thought bad firmware would do that but the fact he also gets that from the recovery screen pretty much points towards a hardware issue. I would though email iBasso and ask them if they have ever seen the dap behaving this way and what they would suggest he does. We well know what they are going to say but it's worth asking.

Actually that is certainly a valid suggestion. I would put the image file on the sd card and select install the firmware from sd card in the recovery screen because you can easily navigate using the volume + - buttons.

How good is the amplifier in the dx50 ? is it better then f.e. Fiio e11 ? Im not really asking about the signature , mainly power and soundstage

Don't think so. I found it to be marginally better than the e6.
