The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.4 - January 24, 2016 - Page 335

post #5011 of 18426

Guys... You do realize that you don't HAVE to carry your entire music collection with you at all times, right? I just load up my microSD with whatever I listen to the most and for that use, 64gb is fine. If I want to listen to something else, I just pop the card into my computer and transfer whatever I need.

I have both the Quickstep and the Pico Power. They are my favorites in general terms. It is way too early to say how then synergise with the DX50 though. (I haven't even tried the Quickstep yet.) Right now I am enjoying  the DX50 headphone out. I'll be playing around in coming days.

 

(You can't go wrong with either of those amps. They have differences but both are excellent.)

Oh please share your impressions once you get to try that pairing!

No, but I might do it later.

can someone explain to me the OTG USB and why I would use it? sounds like a dumb question but I'm just oblivious to this

USB OTG (on the go), treats the DX50 like a host/operator for USB peripherals like jump drives or portable hard drives. This means that you can load up a USB storage device with as much music as you want and if organized well enough, can use the DX50 to browse and play from it.

Sorensiim, I've ran the DX50 with various amps thus far in my inventory.....pico power, o2, T1, and pico slim......all with very very good results for IEM.  If I had to pick out of that batch it'd be the T1 or Pico Power (O2 is good but out of the question as it's not really that portable).  You could go all out since you're selling the DX100 with a TU-05 or something.....but then that's not exactly a carry stack in any sense hah.

thanks for clearing that up but since there's already the sdcard couldn't you just swap sdcards instead?


or is it more like if you were at a buddys house and he had some music on a thumb drive you could use it like that?

I get it but I just don't see when you would ever really use it? does anyone have a better example?

microSD: 64GB storage.

microSD plus external SD or thumb drive via USB OTG host: tons of storage more

Sadly, the Pico amps are out because of their very narrow shape. I know that would annoy me to no end when stacking it with the DX50.

Sorensiim, you're correct concerning the Pico Slim, but not with regard to the Pico Power... its footprint, IMHO, is a very good complement to the DX50, just as wide (with leather case, without it's a tiny bit -say about 0.5 cm- more narrow), slightly taller (a couple of mm without leather case, about 0,5 cm with leather case), and about 0.5 cm thicker.

There's just sooo many options out there and after 1½ years with the DX100 I am completely out of the loop with what's hot :-)

Hi guys

I am happy with my dx50 but i have a question about gain setting, i am using akg k3003,, when i change the gain to hi it just puts more sound, do you have any suggestions for gain setting?

Akg is 8ohms

Thx:ksc75smile:

How about the pico slim portable amp? 
http://www.headamp.com/pico/pico_slim_amp/index.htm
 

Its thinness is highly appealing to me.

 

 

Is it any different than the Pico Power in terms of SQ?

I realized my EQ was on by default, even though all sliders were set to zero, turning it off softens the sound and lowers the volume. It sound better to me :)

post #5025 of 18426

With every IEM I've tried, the DX50 has sounded boomy and muddy. I have cycled through different output impedances with my Hifi M8 to see if the DX50's OI is the issue...and my conclusion is that...my DX50 must be damaged. The LO sounds wonderful, so the amp section must be to blame for what I'm hearing. Extreme hiss with all IEMs and torrents of bass are not what the DX50 should be putting out.
