Totally agree. In fact the DX50 sounds so good I'm not sure I'll even consider going DX90. Listened to several hires organ recordings and I think this is the most real and life like I have ever heard from a rig. The DX50 has oficially retired my trusty Whipmod, it's a fantastic bargin at it's price and punches many levels above it's class

Matthew is coming out with a new version of his Clair ICL soon and i was planning on getting one in the future.

 

Anyways sorry! a bit off topic. Back to the DX50! Thanks for the input though guys :D

In this one regard, the DX50 now sounds like Foobar, or an iPod, or the X5 (which got this right out of the gate) etc. That is what iBasso has accomplished and kudos to them. I am pleased.

 

Couldn't have said it better. I still use my DX50 mainly in my commute, but i'd love to have more time to listen to it. And i haven't even put DSD files in it yet (too lazy to try and rip). I'm very content with this firmware, i just hope it doesn't change the SQ for the next one...

I've been holding back from upgrading the FW because of the instability and different sound signatures. However, the latest one seems good enough based on what I've read on this thread. I'm going from 1.2.5 to 1.2.8. Just follow the instructions on the FAQ right? Don't wanna mess up. :x

Yes, just follow the instructions. Very straight forward. Drop the FW .img onto the DX50 internal memory, go to advanced. . . well just follow the instructions. I always go back and delete the file in the internal memory after I am done.

That's some interesting info, thanks.

Hi friends.

 

I'm listening to OPUS3 DSD SHOWCASE 1, its on DSD format.

Playback sounds amazing and flawless. I can't say if there's difference between the 24bit flac I usually hears..its amazing though...
