I paired the DX50 with the intruder and really like the results, somehow it has softened the brightness.

Some experts comment that iPod 5th Gen. (stock) sounds better than DX50.

May be someone can do a critical listening to compare these two players.

Oi...if anyone plans on using the this player through their aux port in their car, good luck -_-.

For some reason the DX50 works with the aux port sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Trying to figure out what the problem is.

You can find them in those forums.

You're not agreed with them?

Everyone has in the opinion often right them, doesn't mean they're right for everyone.

Thanks very much if you reply...

Sure not a problem. I'll try to do a little comparison between the 2 when I get back from work later in the night.

All I did was take down the last 3 bands a notch to tame the brightness a bit, especially on female vocals. No need to touch anything else for the time being. I was surprised, as I was using slightly dark headphones for the test listening (AD2000x). I can't imagine something like the HD800 or an AKG or a TWFK IEM, heh.

 

I REALLY wish they would replace that 4khz band with a 2.5khz band. 4khz is when the harshness starts to set in, the only thing I'm going to do to it is turn it down a bit. 2-2.5khz still has a ton of useful audio information in it, especially for female vocals.

And I was all set for a lovely commute tomorrow morning.

Minus the hiss, I am loving the way this is sounding thus far.  Wonder how much better ak120 really is:

 

 

IMO, it really gets the mids right.

Use DX50 solely as transport and then pair with iBasso PB2 (amp) + DB2 (Dual WM8740 DAC).

 

I know Fiio X3 allows to bypass its internal DAC by coaxial digital out. 

Yep, you can do that, but not sure how to though. 

 

And does anyone know how to make a playlist? I left it on for 7 hours and it still has 3/4 bars... Great battery life!

I've looked everywhere, but I can't seem to find it. 

I have also sent an email to iBasso asking them about making a case, but they haven't responded yet.

Just in time for my questions also... Yes I was very interested in using the player in the same fashion as you have tried.. Please let me know what you find..

 

and what brand,etc of line out cable did you use to connect to aux port of car

 

and... how did you mount it in the car.. any bracket brand or model # would be helpful too..

 

and.. and..how did it sound when it worked??

 

 

Thanks and awaiting any other news on this issue.. especially since I have already ordered one ..lol
