Can anyone tell me if I need to buy cabling to connect to the PB2 in readiness for when the DX50 arrives?

A TRS mini-mini from DX50 line-out to PB2 SE input will be needed. Of course if you want to run the PB2 from the balanced output, you will need to re-terminate your 4-lead phones with the iBasso Hirose adapter. If you plan to use only the SE PB2 output, you will not experience its full potential.

Lol, wha-?

I only want to change the wooden wallpaper to one of my own... :(

 

Is that so hard for one to ask..? *sniff* *sniff*

I like the sound enough so do not see the need for mod. Esp when pairing with Heir5.0, i can listen to it as long as the battery lasts.. But will continue to search for amp bcos of the inevitable crave for powerful sound with conviction.. LoL

Nah, not hard to ask at all :cool:

But seriously, if you're scared by tech stuff so much, why do you think you're gonna enjoy installing Android on that thing?

Seems this was never asked : what about battery life ?

Haha, I won't be installing Android then. I will find a way, if simple enough, to change my wallpaper, and leave it at that.

Mainly lacks the painful satisfaction to know I sank 4 digits into a freaking digital audio player... or the ability to bash i-devices with a snobby smile on my face at meets or show  :p   /s

On a more serious note, mids sound different in that AK120 has more body and sound fuller, while still maintaining the resolution/clarity.  Mid bass differs in a similar way but to lesser extend.  Treble seems to be more refined/lacks sparkle (glass half empty/half full).  Soundstage have more depth but may sound actually narrower on busy/complex tracks.  The difference isn't really night and day and has to listen intently to familiar tracks.  Many a time I "find" some "deficiency" and switched to the AK120 on the same track and well it wasn't really immediately better (e.g. "em... voice sounded thin..."  "oh nevermind it is like that on here too").   

 

They sound different for sure, but if I need to "squint" my ears to listen to different and struggle to decide which one I like better, it made the decision to sell it quite easy.  Afterall I gain the satisfaction of having 4 digits of cash back in my pocket now.   :biggrin:

 

Just hope the firmware will arrive at a point it is as stable.

Omg! Thanks heaps, Swimsonny!

 

If you can, not expecting you to, but if you got another minute to spare, could you show pictures of the DX50 with the C5 stacked together?:) 

 

And how do you find it paired with the C5? Very curious to know.
