thanks...

Pc dac functionality should come in a future fw version. There is no line in option so you can't use DX50 as a headphone amp

Yes this has been mentioned many times in this thread

you can try to compile your own from git or wait another week (I hope) for first packaged variant.

I can also share compiled binaries, but you will have to install them properly via adb.

 

This would be just awesome! I've been waiting for a RB port for the dx50 for a while. If anything, it would help remedy the terrible EQ the dx50 has.

Believe me. ...dx50 touchscreen in comparison to ak100 is pure bliss!!!

Where did you get yours bro? I dropped by at Challenger this afternoon and they still don't have the 128GB microSD.

Will it be dual boot RB and original FW?

Wow it appears rockbox is coming to DX50 sooner than I expected.

Yes, actually we event don't need to reboot - close one app, open the other one.

Excellent! This was probably the deal maker for me.

Even better, if RB can stretch the performance of DX50 sonic-wise then it might save my wallet from spending on an upgrade. Lol

Are there plan to improve the signature of the dx50 with rockbox? I though that it was just a GUI change.

There's a lot more to rockbox than GUI changes. It gives you some very advanced features such as crossfeed, customizable and working EQ(which doesnt work at present on the dx50) etc. You could change the signature yourself if you felt the need to..

post #12089 of 18426

Very interesting...thanks for the info.

Rockbox shouldn't make DX50 sound different except for replacing bugs in Mango that alter SQ with hopefully no bugs (for example, early Sansa Clip firmwares have a bug that severely rolls off bass which Rockbox "fixes" by not replicating the bug). That said, it offers a fully functional parametric EQ mechanism so you can tune things to your liking if you want to go that way. There are quite a few other features that Rockbox offers like crossfeed, ReplayGain, working playlists, and so forth. It's much more than just a GUI change.
