i believe i read the answer to this a few pages back - leave it at exFat as the DX50 is able to read the format. set the allocation size to 128kb, it's the default cluster size for 32 GB–256 TB sizes - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/140365

Bear in mind all 4 are pretty good IEMs and as always, personal taste is involved. I suggest you see if you can audition your 535s with a DX50.

still no update.

 

Have mailed DHL enquires twice in 2 days and got no response. Same with iBasso , again no response. Maybe a chinese holiday?

 

Either way very frustrated and annoyed that my DX is not going to get here as soon as I had hoped.

 

I really hate it when mails are ignored!!!

 

Sorry just had to vent

Edit: I also have a pair of SE215 and those ones seem to pair more easily than the SE535, I don't need the amp with them.

 

Thanks for your recommendation, but I prefer a standalone (e.g. no separate amp) setup.

I amp the DX50 because of its bright treble only, if you have no issues with than the DX50 is good enough. As the other member suggested if you are fortunate enough to audition the dap without purchasing it then the better. We don't have that luxury at our local audio stores.

I'm pretty sure its across them all, The DX50 clearly has some flaws in its amplifier design, iBasso also never put up the power output specs of the DX50, now we know why, because the 16 ohm power output is inferior to some of its main competitors like the X3, and I for one have a lot of 16 ohm iems so this is a big problem for me, not to mention the rubbish output impedance causing bass roll off and altering the sound of low impedance iems to be more treble happy.

Just contacted DHL and they told me that the supplier has not released the goods for delivery ie iBasso have not sent the item to DHL so alphabetagaga we are not going to get our units for some time......really annoyed now

The new firmware has seemed to fix my playback issues through directory mode. Although its still struggling to allow my music library to show up in album or artist mode. Its probably the tags though.

This whole week is Chinese Golden Week public holiday, good luck getting a response from iBasso :P, if your dx50 hasn't shipped yet you will probably have to wait till next week for it to even ship!

May I know how is the sound comparison when DX50+amp vs DX100 (no amp)?

What is the good amp to pair with DX50?
