It seems to me that the bugs in SU EX are quite dependent on the library contents.

CoiL, what is the best custom firmware for DX50? Can you please provide a link so I can try.

post #17179 of 18426

This is totally subjective and depends on many things... but by my taste/hearing/reference point/gear etc.:

* without any HW upgrades - probably SUEX and NDFFF with just little edge over SU 1.3.3 because of bass/kick tightness and presence. NDFFF has littlebit bright highs for me. SU 1.3.3 soundstage and imaging is slightly better than SUEX imo.

* with capacitor upgrade - SU 1.3.3 @ FLAC/ IIR off/ CPU Default.

 

Sometime ago somebody compared DX50 with AK100mkII, X5 and some others ...already with SU 1.3.3 FW It came really close to more expensive/respected DAPs in terms of detail and soundstage... imagine what it can be with some hardware upgrades ;)

Thank you.

 

Where can I find them? I could not see them in the first post.

SUEX is not public as far as I know but I think someone posted uploaded link in this thread ...use search.

While, if I'm not mistaken, here's medmitry's original post on SUEX (with link)

Thanks very much for the links. There are many to choose from.

 

What I'm interested in is SU 1.3.3.

 

Can you guys point me to that one please?

No these are just a few of the actually many smily_headphones1.gif

DOC has about 65 FW available for download: http://player.ru/showthread.php?t=139417&s=42fe48c974891b45aaeff4305055ef14 I recommend using Microsoft(Bing) translator it is better than Google translator for Russian.

Dmitry's FW are excellent work too - all in all he has about 10 versions: https://github.com/dm1try/dx50_sound_unlocked

In these links there must be available for downloading and testing on your DX50s guys at least 75 versions of FW and that doesn't include any Rockbox or SU Rockbox versions!!! No other portable audio player had or has so many FW versions in history!

If that is not enough here is a mind-boggling amount of ways to tune Rockbox for different phones and large number of Rockbox versions. http://player.ru/showthread.php?t=143224

My post doesn't include Rockbox SU and several Rockbox versions and dual-boot versions, also no original FW versions, they are all available at ibasso's site.

I'm still not very good at describing sound and still feel I'm probably placebo-ing the F out of these FW's. But for some reason my brain is enjoying NDFFF more than SU 1.3.3. Having Gapless working smoothly also helps.

 

Would you guys please recommend some songs that will definitely sound different under different firmwares?. I know sound perception depends on equipment (DX50 + M50x in my case) and many other factors,  but I still would like to know :)

Although, I already enjoy my DX50 sound very much and find nothing lacking with my gear after caps+ SU 1.3.3.

 

But If I`m going to upgrade amp, then it`s good excuse to put in some oxicaps too, finally ;D

 

Wait before putting Oxicap... I am just finishing some extensive testing with various Caps, and I plan to put a review soon in DX50 MODs forum

One reason why you can't hear the difference might be using an amp. Or may be the M50x just demands a bit more power than the DX50's built-in amp can deliver to fully unveil all the sonic characteristics(thus all the differences) of the FW?

I can hear the differences with my studio monitors, but they are different - Japanese monitors from Victor studio which deliver about 60Ohms throughout the spectrum. As as an example - with more powerful amps the higher Ohm Sure SR840 monitor and Sure SR940 monitor get a bit closer to the Victor MX10B but on weaker amps they just cant keep in the same league.
