Well, that was short lived, if I don't say so myself. :p

DHL finally decided to deliver mine at 7pm EST. 

 

So far, it has failed my first test.  I put a live recording in FLAC format with absolutely no ID3 tags at all on a microSD card.  Once in the DX50, I searched for the files under: Directory > SD Card. 

 

The ID3-less FLAC files show up in the DX50's directory amongst other FLAC and mp3 files that are tagged. They appear normal in the directory.  However, DX50 refuses to play the ID3-less files at all.  When you tap on any of those files, it says "Media scanning..." on the screen for about one second, then the screen reverts back to showing the last (tagged) file it played.  But no audio plays at all.  Very dissapointing. 

 

Has anyone else gotten the DX50 to play un-tagged files?

I've re-named tracks 6 & 10 to remove the '

they show in the list of tracks, when I play the album it skips them by so 5 jumps to 7 and 9 to 11

Have you tried rescanning / update the DB since the file renamed?

Yeah the pouch ain't going to do it, I am so careful placing it on the table afraid of scratching it. frown.gif

One more thing it does, you can scrape your skin and fingernail easily on the bottom edge of the player. I think I found myself a nail filler in case of emergency. biggrin.gif

Thus far, I've read impressions from people that seem to be all over the map. Some people are having absolutely no problems while others can't seem to use the player an hour without something going wrong. I expected bugs but never so many different early findings that are all over the place.

If there are hardware variations or DoA etc then it would seems to be QA issue. Imho the difference in our experiences with the dx50 relates to a larger extend the user's experience with these "audiophile" DAPs. It seems peple coming directly from say mac itune+i-devices are having the most difficulties. I went thru the same steeper curve when moving from IPC/iphone/Note to dx100, then a lesser extend from dx100 to ak100, to almost no isses from ak100 to ak120 and now dx50. These seems to be file/tag driven more than anything. Of course I would have liked these DAP to be as smart as a smartphone and handle these filenames/tag as smoothly.

There are a few key issues to be solved: korean characters, certain japanese characters in some encoding (some actually show up fine), special characters, file ordering after edits/name change, support for higher bit rates via coax out.

I think I am less frustrated with others as I came from much more expensive players with similar issues. Below are a couple comparison with the 1400 AK120 that had been released for 4+ month with a lot of UI development based on AK100 that is released for almost a year and selling great in Japan, guess what? Jap chars thay shows in AK120 also shows in DX50, chars NOT showing on dx50 is also NOT showing on AK120.

DX50 amped by the ASP TU-05

 

The line out on the DX50 is sweet.

 

Sounds ridiculously good.....I will be amping my DX50 from now on, well one of them:wink_face:

Is someone going to post a small video on this, still looking for it on u-tube. Also patiently waiting for a comparison to the X3. I know eneryone is enjoying the hell out of them but share the love for those who are waiting for there arrival. Also I would like some recommendations on what IEMs you are preferring.smily_headphones1.gif

Does anyone understand what the settings in the Settings > Gapless menu mean?  There are three options:

 

Close

5 sec

10 sec

 

"Close" apparently means gapless is turned off (no idea why anyone would ever want it off) and "5 sec" and "10 sec" apparently switch it on.  But what is the dfference between "5 sec" and "10 sec" gapless mode? 

 

Does it have to do with the amount of buffer memory or something?

Is the DX50 double amp'ed with the external amp or is the internal amp bypassed?

Thanks, now I want it even faster. The UI seemed responsive.

I agree with you, amping the DX50 all of a sudden gives it a new life. So far I prefer it to be amped than not.

I'm a little on the fence with this one. I don't have the patience (or skills) to faff about with changing tags, so won't be ordering this until the firmware is solid, particularly as my music is in iTunes right now. Supposing that this does get fixed though, is this for me? 

 

- Will it pair well with my Momentums do you think? 

 

- Is it really going to be significantly better than my HTC One with Player Pro or Neutron? Which, by the way, has no issues with copying files from my Mac!

 

- I also use a 5th Gen iPod hooked up via a dock to a Marantz amp and KEF Q35 speakers. Works pretty well. Will the DX50 sound better than the iPod? And if so, does anyone know if there is a suitable dock available or planned?

 

Sorry, these questions are a little bit specific, but your advice, as ever, would be much appreciated!

One more thing, has anyone tested this with the I basso d42?

No, it won't be double amping through the dedicated Line Out...........
