The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.4 - January 24, 2016 - Page 709

Flashing 1.2.8 now. I think this is the first time a lot of people if not all like the latest FW update. This is very good.

post #10622 of 18427

Talking about improvement. I have not listened to it yet but flashing the new FW is a lot quicker than before. Same with hard reset.

found read the previous threads

Have a look on page 1 of this thread, @Sorenslim always provide the link to his server which is real fast compared to iBasso.

A few pages back, you got the two links, iBasso does not update their site right away, there is always few days before they publish the link.

caching, the only apparent change was DSD but it really sounds like we got something more. :beerchug:

Yes, I was comparing the Pico DAC to the dx50 and definitely the bass was much less tight on the DX50 along with some loss in transparency and texture.  This update is definitely an improvement, and I hear more kick drum on my Dunu dn1000s. Liking this update very much.

Well I have no problems with anything on this FW. Don't think I will be changing. Everything works for me. 

post #10629 of 18427

I'm really enjoying this update as well - at this point I'm very happy with this player.

post #10630 of 18427

yep and thus far my dx50 hasn't froze or crashed on me once :bigsmile_face:

 

a lot of people said a lot of bad things about the dx50 early on but to be honest this is probably one of the best daps you can buy for that money. (value wise)

I'm pretty sure that iBasso tweaked the bass up a bit in v1.2.5 from v1.2.2.

Given some of the nearly ruler-straight FR plots against v1.2.7 that were posted I suspect that iBasso reduced or removed that tweak in v1.2.7 in a way that caused a little depression below 60Hz. This lead to some of you complaining about how lifeless v1.2.7 sounded, to which I say, "duh, take the fun out of the sound and what do you get?"

After a quick test with v1.2.8 I think they put that bass tweak back in and brought that sub-60Hz depression up with it. There's just a hint of rumble in my KRKs down in the sub-bass range that I don't recall from earlier versions but that could just be my subconscious playing tricks on me.

In other news, playlist management is still effectively nonexistent.

Guys, am I the only one dreaming or the sound on 1.2.8 has completely changed? the bass sounds amazing and the voice is so clear and smoother now. What the hell is going on with the upgrade?
post #10633 of 18427

So you feel like they finally brought up a bit of sub bass?

Agreed. When I noticed it lifted the veil off my Mad Dog's vocals and mids in general, it made me smile.

So I am not alone then?

By the way I would not fret the playlist features, I think it's a given that it won't be any better or different with the upgrades. I don't even use that feature any longer, gave up a long time ago.
