That's a great tip, thanks. I'm checking out the reviews, and these do look like a better bet..

good morning.

its very interesting to follow the thread, even though i havent got my dx50 yet ;)

 

soundwise, as i listen to a lot of classical music and jazz, mids are important to me.

is it true that the mids are the "weakness" of the dx50, as mentioned in some other thread?

and if so, how to handle it?

 

nice sunday to everybody.

A quick question how is the digital volume implemented? Will the playback be bit perfect at all volumes?

I've asked iBasso the exact same question via email and didn't get a reply. So for me, the answer is "no" until stated otherwise by iBasso.wink.gif Not a big deal for me, since I'm using an external amp and have set the volume to max.

amping from DX50 line Out brings well better sonics, so add good amp to your list.

Weakness? I say that's some ********. there is nothing "weak" about it's sound. sure, it's mids aren't artificially elevated, but that's not weakness in my book...

Agreed! The DX50 sounds great, full stop. Even better when paired with a nice amp :smile:

Correct.

 

However, the situation is a bit better than this as a practical matter.

 

For example, the inherent thermal noise creates a noise floor of -120dB; that is, of 20 bits.  Thus in a 24-bit system there already is 4 bits which can be thrown away with no loss of fidelity through 24 dB of attenuation. It is not bit perfect, but there is no practical impact.

 

Additionally, no recording possesses a dynamic range of 120dB.  Consider a pop concert.  The sound level can easily reach 110dB peak, but will will not go below 60dB (the level of a conversation in a quiet room).  This is a dynamic range of only 50dB, easily captured by 9 bits.  One actually needs a few more bits for convincing fidelity, .but this illustrates the concept.

 

All digital volume controls through away bits to attenuate volume.  This is how they work.  However, a sophisticated 32-bit volume control can decrease the volume of even a 24-bit input by a minimum of 12 bits (72 dB) without even a theoretical quality loss - more as a practical matter.  (The DX50 has a 24-bit chip).

Is this amp enough? LOL

Hello all,
When you use a micro SD card do you have to format it so the DX 50 can read the data. If so what type of format do I use?

Jeff

Only format it (FAT32) if you're using a 64 gig card.

I use factory default exfat on my 64gb sandisk without any issue.
post #8098 of 15584

Can I delete a file directly on the player (without connecting to PC) ? If yes, how ? Couldn't find any option on the player for this ?

:blink:

You can use a 64gb micro sd card formatted to "exFAT" easily with the DX50. In fact, that is one of the merits of DX50 over other DAPs (I think so...) and it definitely results in good reading and writing speeds to and from the micro sd card.

Yes, you can delete any file directly on the DX50.

 

While browsing through music files on DX50 (except in Directory mode), press the album art/file icon on the left-hand side of the file > a new menu will pop up > select Delete from the menu, and it's done!
