You recommendation are welcome.

I really like the StageDiver SD3.

Yes it's being used with lots of different amps.

I reformatted it in the Galaxy S3 a couple of times, since the PC USB Micro SD adapter stopped working. Whenever I copy stuff onto this Micro SD card, no matter if using the DX50 or Galaxy S3, it stops at some point leaving me with a corrupt card.

I can try reformatting and verifying once more in my Laptop with a Micro to SD Card adapter. I guess that card is just broken.

Make sure it's formatted to FAT32 not exFAT. Pretty sure the Samsung formats to exFAT.

The DX50 spec is to work with SDXC cards, which are exFAT. It should work just fine formatted as such. 

 

"The SDXC standard, the latest SD memory card standard, dramatically improves consumers’ digital lifestyles by increasing storage capacity from more than 32 GB up to 2 TB. Its exFAT file system handles large volumes of data."

 

Straight from sdcard.org. So to be compliant with the standard, you have to be able to read exFAT.

Interesting. I read a few reviews and they seems to have a bit more bass then my favourite signature. I was also reading on the Cardas EM5813 and they seem to be on the same signature. Thanks for the recommendation.

How does the dx50 sound compared to the dx100, colorfly c4, and Ak100. I am deciding which dap to get as my very first dap.

I took a chance on the Cardas EM5813's.  Initially I thought they were horrible - muddy is the word that comes to mind.  But burn-in really seems to have an effect here.  With the DX50 they sound great - very lush, liquid with a large soundstage.  Ergonomics aside (very heavy cable) I'm very happy with the pairing.

talking about micro sd xc cards, what better, Samsung or Sandisk? i note Samsung pro version is faster, but does it make much sense with DAP? which is more relialble?
post #4316 of 18427

I just wonder what type of format does the DX50 support for MicroSD cards

FAT32 and exFAT. Many older computers cannot read exFAT cards. I had to convert mine to FAT32 in order for my computer to recognize the card. All 64GB cards come formatted as exFAT. If they are not, they are likely fakes.

There's a driver for XP. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=19364 works perfect.

T 1 + DX 50

These two set up from the sound character has different to each other

T1 more clarity and detail

PB2 is strong in mid and to warm sounding

My IMO

Hi Rudi,
Can you comment about the sound stage, separation and clarity for below comparison?

DX50 + T1 vs DX50 + RSA71A

I have been using my fi.Q (all Black Gate caps, original Japanese tantalum resistors and other refinements)with the DX50. The DX50 as a source is outstanding. I had not listened to it with my fi.Q and the fi.Q is, IMO, the best portable there is, though I have not heard them all. It is also better than any home amp I have heard (this goes up to 2000 dollars). Anyway, the combination is dynamite.
