3, click OK to start the firmware update;
4, after the firmware update completed, select Settings--->Advanced--->Factory Reset to reset the DX50;
5, delete the update.img.

the 4th step probably the most important, if done correctly step 5 is actually redundant.

 

Finally my DX50 has arrive a few hours ago.

 

For my case, after the firmware update is completed, factory reset was initiated automatically. Subsequently, all the files were automatically deleted, including the update.img

Anyone hearing a clicking sound coming from inside the device when shutting down? Didn't hear this before upgrading firmware to 1.1.5. Doesn't sound like it should be happening.

EDIT: Also happens when booting up, but not as loud. :confused_face(1):

Mine has been like this from day one!
post #1295 of 18426

I have to say I am very happy after the update

 

been using mine on and off for most of the day and it's only froze once - when scanning after initially upgrading the firmware, so could be expected I guess

 

it certainly seems quicker and more fluent and ive really put the skipping between albums to the test and ive not had a drop, freeze or random skip at all - so this is a huge improvement for me

 

I think there still could be issues with the ' mark as I still cannot get 2 tracks to play - but all the others now do - which again, is an improvement

 

the unit seems louder now as well, before I may have had volume around 240/245 but now I don't have it past 230 - so again, this is good for me

 

my only gripe would be the art duplication by album search and not being able to go back to the previous part on a list when going back a menu - it takes you to the top of the list - I've put this over to Ibasso who say they will look at this next week

 

I am now enjoying this player a lot and feel I can actually listen to it and enjoy it rather than waiting for the next skip ,freeze, crash or jump

 

 

I would appreciate if people could share any tweaks done with the equalizer - could help everybody get a little more from the dx50

 

I'll have a play and see what I can find and post back later

Hmm...what do you mean by this? Has the firmware update made the unit more bassy? Or is this an effect of burn-in?

One thing I have been reading about this player that is attractive to me is it's supposedly more neutral and if anything a bit on the bright side with treble emphasis. That is what I'm looking for to pair with my Heir 8.A which can get to muddy if the source is bass heavy or woolly.

Sorensiim- you've got to share some impressions of the DX50 with 8.A for me when you get it. A thumbs up or down? smily_headphones1.gif

very mild / light, my fiio e12 amp used to do exactly the same - think mine did it before the update, more like a little "pop" to me - assuming its the same noise? could be just the amp section coming on? (I am no electronics expert though lol)

Thanks, me neither. Only had the thing roughly 36 hours. Maybe the first day I was just too excited to notice these minor details. Update made me paranoid it seems lol.

Everything seems to be working great though 

:smile:

Same boat as you.

Emailed them and this was the reply I got...

 

Hi,
thank you for your email.
We are working on the multi-language support now. It should be done in 2 weeks.
 
Sincerely

Did anyone here use EMS for shipping? I was in the first batch and I am still waiting for mine. I checked the tracking number on the EMS website and it shows it was delivered and signed for by someone in the City of Guangzhou. However, on the Canada Post website it shows the item is on route to Canada. I'm confused?!?!

This little DAP just won't let us get bored LOL

Really really liking it so far ;)
The UI is a little bit wonky, but far away from being unusable.

It's the amp section turning on and off. The DX100 does the same, as do most stand-alone amps :-)

You betcha! Initial reports sound like it has much the same signature as the DX100, so there's a good chance that it'll be a very nice pairing!

Yes, mine from the first batch and without updates since departed from International office past saturday 7th.

 

I asked for EMS shipping only to avoid a bit the taxes and obviously a bad choice, since It seems people in my country have received DX50's from the second batch without fees with DHL.

I'm regretting it too. It's either taking it's time getting here or they shipped mine to the wrong person. I contacted iBasso and they said they will check with the courier and get back to me tomorrow.
