So, you bought this DX50 despite the fact that it doesn't claim to have a clock and now you feel wronged because it doesn't have a clock? I'm sorry man, I just can't follow your logic. I understand your frustration when it comes to the bugs though.

 

YES, the first firmware was crap (judging by comments here) but with 1.1.6 I think this genuinely has the best UI of any audiophile DAP yet. Sure beats the DX100 in my opinion, even though the DX100 has a (wildly inaccurate, by the way) clock.

 

I did not say that i felt "wronged' by it not having a clock.  In my original post, i just added that it could use a scroll bar and a clock after agreeing that the new update is still flawed because it does not allow folder or album selection in the Artist sort.  I am not sure why people are so upset by the suggestion that it would be useful to have a clock.  For some reason, everyone has fixated on that comment.  I am also not sure why people are so offended by such a suggestion either.   I probably set the wrong tone with my harsh terms, but i am not sure why people have gotten heated about that - since that was not even the source of my main complaint. I just added that it could use a scroll bar and a clock.

I would rather let users help with ironing out bugs instead of trying to find every instance of them myself if my company was small and all resources were tied to the actual production of the unit. I'm aware iPod UI when it first came out wasn't perfect at all either.

depend on the recordings.. using TG334 with DX50 some tracks got slight hiss... 

post #1984 of 18427

The hiss I myself am talking about is just inherent hiss without anything playing, and/or before anything is played at power on.

post #1985 of 18427

Buy a watch if you want a portable clock.

post #1986 of 18427

yeah, that's what I hear also, inherent hiss without anything playing.  AKA typical of sensitive IEMs on amps with certain noise floors.  It's nothing that distracts me while listening to music, but I can tell it's there when nothing's playing.

Don't your jobs and appointments come with some sort of a cellphone? Those have clocks last time I checked.

Look, I know what you mean, having a watch wouldn't be bad and it would be very welcome but it's not a feature you would choose a DAP with. At least that's my point of view, but if you think otherwise, it's your right. Nobody here is defending ibasso, I for one, am already annoyed by the bugs (though I still have to receive the actual unit :D ) and will clearly state every problem I may have with it but at least until the bugs are non-existent, I wouldn't ask for new features, especially something that is not directly connected to playing music. once more, it's just my point of view.

 

I still question the generalization about "Chinese people."  For one thing, maybe I am a Chinese person - who finds it useful to have a clock.   Actually, true.

 

I didn't say anywhere that anyone should buy a DAP based on a clock.  I just added that it that it could use a clock and a scroll bar to make it more useful.  For some reason, people have fixated on the clock comment.

 

In any case, I think i will stop now.

post #1991 of 18427

I... I guess it'd be useful to see what time it is by glancing at the time while browsing through the DX50... But then again I play all my music at random and use the buttons and doesn't leave my pocket for the whole day so........ It's one of those things where it's nice if it's there, and doesn't matter if it isn't. Not necessarily unnecessary but not necessary.

If they add a clock to the DAP the battery will have to keep running when it is turned off. Otherwise it would be like an iPod, if you turned it off say 3:49pm and then turn it on the next day it will continue from that time, giving you inaccurate time.

It's not like it'll drain half the battery... Also never heard of an iPod doing this since I'm aware all iDevices have RTCs. Maybe the ancient models?

Wow, putting it up for sale after just ten minutes?
Dude, that has to be a record.
