There is a read me file with the download. 

 

Below for 1.2.6 updating now. :) 

 

Instruction For Firmware upgrade:
1, extract the zip file, and copy the update.img into the DX50;
2, select Settings--->Advanced--->System update (the system update option appears after the DX50 has the update.img inside);
3, click OK to start the firmware update;
4, after the firmware update completed, select Settings--->Advanced--->Factory Reset to reset the DX50;
5, delete the update.img.

 

Changes. 
1, improved media scanner with progress bar.
2, sleep timer function added.

But that might be confirmation bias speaking since I don't have a second DX50 to do any A/B testing.

 

hmm... seems i can forget about my hopes of ibasso giving a little more weight to the mids. the sound is good with good clarity but i always prefer my dragonfly a little more because the sound is just more supported in the mids, more dynamic, and just so engaging.

Can anyone recommend a source for very short coax digital cable with 3.5mm miniplugs at each end?  Looking to try the DX50 connected to a portable DAC, but I'm not finding anyone with such a cable for a sensible price.  The few I've found online are very overpriced. 

 

I asked Redco and they said they can't make one shorter than 1 ft.  I was hoping for something very short (6" or less), and preferably with right angle miniplugs (if anyone even makes them in mono versions).

An instructional readme file is included as part of the update zipfile.

That's what the EQ is for. Turn the EQ on, select the Custom preset, and nudge the middle bands up a bit, say "0 1 2 3 3 2 1 0" on the sliders. Enjoy.

Gapless id messed up as stated, the end of one song starts over the top of the next.  I do hear the widened sound stage and increased weight in the bass, just what i wanted but the gapless issue sucks cuz I mostly listen to live music.

 

Edit: and if you turn the gapless off it cuts off the first split second of the song.

I can confirm this.

Edit: and it's annoying even on some studio tracks. :P

I'm going to buy a micro sd for my dx50. I was thinking about a Sandisk Ultra 64gb class 10. I guess there shouldn't be any problem with it but what do you suggest anyway?

post #8142 of 14965
If thats enuff space for u, by all means go for it!
post #8143 of 14965

No complaints about by sandisk ultra.

I find the EQ confusing .

Just to be clear

When you go onto the EQ screen and you see OFF - there is NO EQ

When you press OFF and it shows ON, there is EQ.

EQ then remains active until you press ON and it show OFF.

Thanks guys. I've just updated mine to 1.2.6. The touchscreen seems to be less sensitive and with a better response. Still haven't tested the audio quality :)
