It may sound nice and you may like it but most sensitive phones have low impedance and the line out has a huge impedance value which surely is affecting the frequency response of these phone. So the sound you are hearing is completely different from what it is suppose to be. Especially on the bass region.

The main reason you want to hook it up in with an external amp is because DX50 implemented the volume control in the DAC. For optimal SQ you have to turn up the volume all the way up and let the amp attenuate the volume going to your headphone so as not to damage your hearing.

So yeah you can connect a headphone directly to the line out. But you should not do that.

 

I don't use the Line Out, i actually like the HO, but a lot of people throughout the topic has claimed that the Line Out helped with hissing and gave a blacker backround, that's why i said it. I'm using 10 ohm headphones through the HO and i have no hissing issues whatsoever. Considering the line out on the DX50 doesn't actually work like a regular Line out, it is a viable option, since it wouldn't be the same as to use a pair of headphones straight to a USB DAC. Anyway, just saying what's been said in the topic.

In conclusion, you might need to delete the .audio_data folder on the sd card in order to allow a full, lengthy I might add for the 1st time, scan.

Good luck but please don't give up. I went back and forth with 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 and prefer the scanning progress bar on the latest release. At least you know it's working and where you are and when it's over. smily_headphones1.gif

 

I'd also add, you might want to delete the album art in the DX50 internal memory. I had some issues with the cover art when i deleted the .audio_data folder for a re-scan, and didn't recognized any of the covers in it (despite the fact that previous to the scan, most of the albums had art). After i deleted both folders, the scan picked up the cover art and my whole library again.

I am genuinely sorry about your wallet. 

 

That being said: They ARE amazing and if (like me) you adhere to the philosophy of buy the best and only cry once, they'll suit you just fine.

Lol, poor wallet.  

 

Actually $1600 is nothing compared to my other hobby.  Buy custom designed full body costumes (that requires sending what is essentially an impression mold of your entire body to the maker) costs anywhere from $2000-$4000 per costume.  $1600 is a good deal by comparison and gets far more regular use.  lol.  But yeah, from the past couple months of headphone research, I've really been settling on an option that can be just the best and then end it.  :p

Have you heard Tralucent 1Plus2's ?  If not, I highly suggest you do before you spend over $1K on anything else.

file transfer to microsd (64gig sandisk ultra sdxc class 10) via usb (cant find my cardreader) is so sllllllooooooooow.

 

is it 

a) just because of the usb, then why its so much faster to copy files to internal storage?

b) because i havent formatted the thing "right"

c) because of the weather

 

 

any info would be appreciated.

It's mostly due to gremlins, solar winds and because you're holding it wrong.

The original poster may need a left-handed USB cable.
Also a new SDXC card adapter or USB adapter of the appropriate handedness.

Hello all,
Batch 11 player freezing issues! I reboot and it fixes it. I would think by this batch they would have fixed this. still love the player!

Very helpful some of us are here. Generally it is faster to copy to the devices internal memory than through the device to a micro sd card.

You may want to remove the micro sd card and copy directly to it from your pc with an sd card adapter.

Although the lefties do sound good as well.

I agree with the usefulness of the lefties. The worse side effect is the munchies...ymmv
