That's awesome. Any pics I can take a look at? I'd love to see that beastly stack.

Look for posts by @cooperpwc. He has a stack of DX50/Pico power and posted a few pics sometime ago.

Hi guys, I am new to here.

I am using Westone UM3x and planning to get a device. All of my music are purchased from iTunes. Does DX50 works well with my UM3x? Is it easy to add music? Thanks!!

Yup, simple drag and drop.

UM3X sounds good on dx50. More refine than IPC 6G.

I'm still waiting my re-0 :( it looks like opening the housing is a bit troublesome

 

I wonder how well it pairs with DX50. I hope it's more detailed than my fullsize HD669

Hi, 

 

I'll be purchasing a HE-400 soon, was wondering if DX50 is sufficient to drive them? 

 

I have a small fiio e6 amp, but I doubt that will be of much help? 

 

Thanks, 

Regards,

Siddharth

You will need an amp (powerful amp) to drive HE400. Most people pair DX50 with an amp even with iems. The HO of DX50 doesn't sound so good compared to the LO + an amp.

 

If you don't have DX50 yet I think you are better off getting a DX90 instead. jamato tried HE-560 with it and he mentioned DX90 is good enough (borderline minimum) to drive the HE-560.

Thanks for the reply headwhacker.

I already have the dx50 though.
even with the HO of the dx50,probably its not enough to drive he400? Even with fiio e6?
I considered them since they mention its easy enough to drive it by a iPhone.

how do you guys set the volume on the dx50 when using LO with an amp? Max volume?

post #12806 of 15837

Max volume.

post #12807 of 15837

MAX volume.  Just be sure you don't mistakenly plug your phone jack into HO- ouch!  I taped mine over after doing it.

Thanks guys. Enjoying it a lot! Dx50 with vorzuge duo and ath im02 iem. pretty amazing.

im laying down on my bed listening to melody gardot's iemanja fom the absence album through my dx50 and hd669 slux.

i almost cried.. the improvement from my ipod is so clear..

the soundstage is very spacious, the directional cues are insanely on another level compared to ipod, the separation between instrumen is so clear, its so detailed in reproducing every instrument that the moment i switch focus on some instrument, i reproduce it perfectly: how lifelike it sound, from where it is coming from and how far is it from other instrument.. i love it! definitely a wolfson fanboy now tongue.gif

the sounds warm, quite warm actually.. the bass are very deep and punchy hence giving ny ears the warm impression.. the treble are not slouch though but the sub bass are kicking my bright phone's driver.. how cool is that?!

the only thing i dont like are the vocals... its harsh somehow and my ipod's cirrus produce smoother female vocal frown.gif

3 or 4 days into using my new DX50, I love it!

 

As noted previously, I'm using Rockbox mostly, and it works really well. Has anyone figured out how to get the Random Folder Configuration plugin working? I really like this feature, but it's just counting crazy huge numbers currently, and never stops like it's supposed to.
