<3 Poor Hisao and his bum ticker...
Anywho, my DX50 with 32 GB card is up for grabs in the FS section if anyone's interested. Gotta fund my PS4 hurr hurr
When comparing the C5 to the O2 I did find it to be slightly warmer, with multiple headphones. But it could also be due to the added detail the O2 gives.
I'm not saying the C5 is actually warm, as in most fiio amps. But it sure is slightly smooth/warm compared to the O2. But maybe the O2 is slightly on the colder side.
And when I said heavy I wasn't describing the sound, but the weight when paired with the DX50. Try putting that stack in your inner pocket of your coat without having one side of you coat hanging 10cm lower than the other!
I ended up going with the cheapie cable because I am a cheapo asian and also because my Apex Glacier arrives next week and the shipping times of all of them are too long for me to withstand the wait.
I'm reading the specs for OTG + USB charging cables, and they all say that it will NOT power the device, it will only power the USB device (in this case it would be the flash drive or hard disk used for OTG).
Is this accurate? Is it not possible to charge the DX50 while using OTG? Are there different cables, one of which can charge it?
I want to make an order off of newegg because I have some other things to buy on there.
On cables such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA39V17U4986, which look the same as the ones on ebay, it says "Can charge the extral USB device , like usb flash disk, usb hard disk NOTICE: (cannot charge the phone or tablet)"
Similar to some other ones as well. Is there a different classification of cable I have to look for, or is this usually a DEVICE limitation and the DX50 does not have it?
Just a heads up for those interested lads.. I got a reply from Ibasso and they should have the silicon cover for the dx50 on their website this week.. I know Im gonna be getting one as Ive been wrapping the dx50 in cotton wool since getting it for fear of scratching it :)
