Swapping cards is a solution I'll use. It isn't an issue for me.

HOWEVER the player is SUPPOSED to support OTG. So i also want to do that too.

There doesn't have to be only one way to use a device.

While walking or listening in short spells i might be happy with one 32Gb card. While listening for slighlty longer periods or taking 1 or 2 day trips i might want to take a couple of 32 or 64 gb cards and swap them. And while,plonked at my desk listening for 7.5 hours, evening listening at home, or week long trips i want LOTS of choice.

This device CAN offer all of this, i simply want it to do these things efficiently.

So while simply swapping sd cards IS a solution, i just want it to support larger storage capacity in the most hassle free way AS IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE CAPABLE OF.

Capitals for emphasis, not shouting purposes:cool:

(I'm the guy trying to get longer than 1 hour play from his hd, for context)

Hey Shawn, yup. Startups and shutdowns were problematic and i variously had to connect or disconnect the player from the drive to get it to do either.

I also noticed after undocking the OTG drive that it was randomly pausing tracks on the SD. I'd have to hit the physical play buttons to restart tracks, like.... often..... once every couple of songs. Factory reset didn't solve the issue. I had to reinstall the firmware to remove this issue.

I'm pretty confident when i state ... this player is not YET ready to fully support OTG (at least via external, powered HD).

Maybe I'll try my 256gb ssd just for s&g, using a 64gb flash drive I'm not encountering quite as many bugs. Just the fact you have to hot plug the otg adapter and the dx50 keeping the tracks in the database after otg removal. Oh well, I have three 128gb sd cards and an adapter so I guess I will stay with that config. For the time being.

Cheers,
Shawn

if you go through each update, the changes are subtle that you will barely hear any difference. However, when I went back from 1.2.7 to 1.2.2, the difference is immediately noticeable.

 

I agree with you! The difference is very clear... 1.22 is leaner and more detailed, 1.26 is bassy and "rounder".  There was a sense of texture (in bass) and accuracy (in highs) that I unfortunately do not find it 1.26, but the bugs from 1.22 discouraged me to downgrade. When iBasso releases a stable version I'll be impressed if they an come up intentionally with several sound sig to cater to different tastes. That would be a first! (A man can dream no?)

Hello,
I can understand why a lot of the users are stating this, but most of you are using your DX50 with other equipment. As you stated (Your rig). I am basing my conclusion on the player alone.

Jeff

True there are so many variables involved. The phones, tips (universal), the type of music, file type and most important of all .. our ears.

Fair enough. I'm just saying that hyperbole isn't anything at all to work with.

So are you going to upgrade to 1.2.7? There should be a 1.2.8 coming out soon I would believe. Have you tried this line out to an amp yet?

To be honest 1.2.2 is stable for me. The only thing that is annoying on this FW is the long file scanning on start up. But other than that everything works perfectly. 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 adds few minor features and tweaks the SQ a bit (which I perceived to be in line with 1.2.2 but a bit better in sub bass and treble extension) but took something away or introduced new bugs/nuances (crossfade on 1.2.6 anyone grrrr...). For 1.2.7, I only started to notice something is totally different when I listened to better-mastered tracks and by casual listening I hear something different.

 

For most of the tracks I listen to ( I suppose they are not so well-mastered or recorded) there is not much difference between 1.2.5, 1.2.6 and 1.2.7.  

 

That's how I find myself back to where I started (1.2.2) which is the FW shipped with 7th batch of DX50.

Yup. But probably going to try out the sound signature of 1.2.2, 1.2.6 as well before going to 1.2.7. Haven't experience any bugs or glitches yet. Not intending to amp it as I don't like the bulkiness of amping. Have always preferred to use the DAP as a standalone. smily_headphones1.gif
