That said, it offers a fully functional parametric EQ mechanism so you can tune things to your liking if you want to go that way. There are quite a few other features that Rockbox offers like crossfeed, ReplayGain, working playlists, and so forth. It's much more than just a GUI change.

And fully functioning gapless, right? :wink_face:  I don't think the 1.2.8 gapless has any issues but others have had different experiences...

I'm not sure if Rockbox has an option to disable gapless playback.

Thanks. Looking forward to a stable release of RB and would love to try it out.

Oh, I want it enabled...I just want to make sure it is working correctly for everybody.  While it works just fine me, some DX50 owners are still reporting issues with FW 1.2.8 (which is what I am using).

fully functioning gapless delivered by rb would be just perfect :wink_face: tried no end of db firmwares and unfortunately gapless is still not 100& correct

This might have to do with the codecs used.  If the music was compressed using a codec that does not support gapless, then you won't get gapless even if you have it turned on.

I use flac as a codec.  Cowon, Sansa, and Foobar 2000 (on the PC) are all able to support gapless playback with flac files.  The DX50 just needs a little tweaking to work flawlessly (it took Cowon a while to implement it correctly on their D2, but once they did, the D2, S9 and J3 all played flac files gaplessly).  I have no doubt iBasso will eventually get it right with the DX50...if not, there's always RockBox. :D

It's interesting with these diverging experiences with gapless. For me with flac gapless works flawlessly and I also don't get any truncation of the start or end of tracks

Yes, lame is known to support gapless.   That is probably why it works fine.   Unfortunately, there are many mp3 encoders out there and not all of them support gapless.  I think all of the lossless codecs support gapless.

unfortunately it still doesn't work correctly on the dx50 (1.2.8) though. looking forward to seeing what rb throws up

on my DX50, my gapless randomly will cut off 1 second from some songs, and play fine on others. overall it works 90% right for me.

Thanks, I guess I have to wait until weekend to get one. I hope I won't run out of stock when I go there.
