Bass level is also much tighter and deeper with both greater quality and quantity than 1.5. Slightly brighter sounding than 1.5 though. Really worth a try for those who haven't!

BTW I have just added DOC's DX50 MEGA Update on the version download page, just let me know if I messed up.
Factory firmware 1.5 was fun sounding for a while but I missed the original Doc2008 MegaSound Explosion overall clarity. MSE Version 2 was too bright for me and a little fatiguing over extended listening for me (Olddude I believe these were your concerns as well)
Mega Sound Explosion 1.1. installed yesterday and I am well happy with it, all is right again! (I think it has the same sound as MegaSoundExplosion if I am not mistaken, it's just that USB DAC has been tuned on)
Doc2008 I am not really digging the MSE splash screen design, sorry. I totally understand the need to to have your name on the firmware but the hand grenade/microphone logo and those colors are not good IMHO. Could you possibly do something more minimal and refined like the stock DX-50 logo (which looks great), maybe just small typeface on same background as DX-50 logo. Anyway it's no big deal really as you only see it briefly. The important thing is the sound.........which is great.
