A question better answered by iBasso than this post. Nobody knows unless one asks and gets an estimate in return for the approximate release date.

My update to 1.2.3 went super smooth ;)
Media scanning was not faster at all for me....

Same, installed first time but scanning took just as long as before.

They want to do some further testing and add a few additional improvements. It should be available in the near future depending on how their testing progresses.

what do you mean by confirmation screen for deletes.

When you select a dropdown context menu and accidentally touch "Delete" rather than "Add to Playlist", the file now disappears instantly. Most delete operations have an "Are you sure" screen that you must acknowledge in order to delete the selected file. Now the UI has no such confirmation screen. One will be added to avoid inadvertent deletes.

Hahaha, oops I guess they forgot to call it firware_1_2_3.zip and not firware_beta1_2_3.zip.

I like the numbering scheme in this special update simple as 1-2-3 . biggrin.gif

I will be waiting for responce, could you p.m. with your findings as i may miss your posting. I would consider the Jds Labs C5 as well if there is a drastic difference between that and the C&C bh.

Have to say, I am super impressed now with the sound quality from update 1.2.3. There is a definate warm depth now and a bass which (on Grado 325 cans) sounds wonderfully balanced [yet deep and rich where needed] - quite rare on a headphone which is high-end orientated!!

I think the soundstage as well has been improved - It seems a lot more spacious, wide and 3D-ish - its become a real pleasure just to listen to what is going on with all the individual instruments. Im also hearing even more subtlties now in the music.

They seem to have emulated what Grado does - To present a sound which is quite unique, in that one feels very much engaged with the musicians right there on the stage / audience. There seems to be that something special now, almost magical...dare I say it ...mystical now with the quality of the audio

Oh, also when you go back to the list you go back to where you just where instead of starting ack at the begining every time! YES :D

Got to hand it to iBasso, they have my admiration and ears now 100%  :)

One thing though - THE EQ DOES BASICALLY NOTHING ?!?

I can confidently recommend the D-zero SE version.  The SE version has a 24bit sabre dac, and sounds pretty freaking awesome playing high-rez out of my HTC Butterfly, either with its amp or through my ALO Continental.  From my search it seems it is not on iBasso`s English page, but there are a ton of Japanese sites showing/rating it.  Here`s the amp`s FB page:

Like CosmicHolyGhost said. A beta within a beta.
