I tried to be fair on the DX50 and did my damnest to get it to work and to date those 2 issues are whats spoiling the player for me. Believe me, I'm not out to grind any axes with anyone. you guys think i should give it a 4th and 5th attempt...alright...I'll try. As it is, I really do hope the bugs eventually get worked out for everyone who has complaints concerning their DX50. Thank you all for being open minded and not grilling me like a couple of other people did on my YouTube channel.
The haters will always come Arly. Especially, as odd as it sounds, when you're doing something you truly feel in your heart is right, but you're takin a chance.
Dont let their perceptions affect you. Ever heard of The Four Agreements? It's SO f___in TOUGH, but if you can try to not be affected by others opinions (and
I work on it everyday, LOL) and stick to your guns - the number of devotees will outnumber the trolls.
I was proud of you and @frank_j for doing this piece.

As for Ibasso they have been active responding to feedbacks and each FW update fixes some bugs and improves the UI and add minor features. But it's not always smooth. The updates sometimes takes 2 steps forward and 1 step backward.
For me, at the latest FW version (1.2.6), the only major bug which is still annoying is the gapless playback (or lack of). Turning it off completely still shaves off 2 seconds at the end of each tracks and gets frustrating on some albums.
They fix this then I'm all set.
The AK100, except on a rare occasion these days, has become my hi-rez transport!
Luckily I've been using some more efficient over-ear cans lately - so its been cool as a full DAP
too - but I prefer the AK120 as a DAP. The 100 has been downgraded to transport...
Great to hear about iBasso's customer service and communications.
My buddy uses the DX100 and enjoys it. I'm going to borrow that as I trust his taste completely,
and see how that badboy does. Maybe even write about it.
