The problems are with redundant interface elements, small touch targets and a host of other interface foibles.

iBasso: you can do it. We know you can. You've got the sound. Just open up to Rockbox and all will be forgiven. 

EDITED for grammar. (I've been drinking again.)
Nice and interesting read! smily_headphones1.gif +1 for the DX50!!

Just one correction I see in your fantastic review.
255 step volume control, not 256.

Including 0 it's 256 steps. ( 0 - 255 )

Someone has worked with binary logic before...haha

It looks gorgeous and sounds amazing, It's the best looking player I've ever seen.

It is actually due to the way processors deal with information in binary.  So, if you have 256 steps in volume control, I would guess it is an 8bit number, represented by 00000000 (0), to 11111111 (255).  As far as the processor is concerned, 00000000 is just as valid of a number assignment as 11111111 or any combination in between. For example, if you had the volume set at 250 (like a handful do to ensure there is minimal clipping), it would be represented in binary by 11111010.

Haha, yup! Any electronics for that matter.  I'm a network admin, converted from a EE major I never finished, so I've had a bit of experience.  Chances are the volume is actually set in 32bit words, but it was easier to explain for others with an 8bit.

just for fun ,,,and a bit off topic...

 

Im a professional architect (buildings etc :P ), self taught in CS that worked for Cisco and Sun Microsystems (subcontracts) before finishing my arch school... then I went for a proper Comp.Eng just to get a seal of approval :P

 

Weird combination :)

I am in Alaska with the winds blowing 50 to 60 mph and a temp of 15 with a wind chill much below that. Well, I thought I would throw that in. :^) Oh, and I have the flu.

I live in North Dakota, so I know exactly what you're going through.

I live in Minnesota were for the last 2 months it has never made it above freezing, usually 30-50 below zero with the wind chill actual temp around -10 every day. It is getting really old.

Summer in Alaska. It has been up into the 40's. The bears are already coming out, which isn't good as they are hungry and there isn't any food about. Well there are some people. 

---------------------

 

I am finding the UI of the DX50 to extremely well now. I imagine USB will come along and a few other things but enjoying the sound and performance.
