The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.4 - January 24, 2016 - Page 480

Awesome, thanks FlyinMN
post #7187 of 18426

So a few weeks ago I decided to get one of the DX50's to see what the fuss is about (I had to see for myself, glad I did, too).  So far, I have to say the only issue I've had is it not connecting when it was off.  Have to turn it on to get it to be recognized (win7 64bit).  Other than that it works for me better than the HiSound Studio 3rd Anv with my new UE7 pros.  The HiSound makes some electronic squelching noises and has a noisy hiss going on with the UE7's.

 

Yes, there are some software things that could be better, like the random not having a stored queue so you can go back to a earlier song (heck even my cd changer in my truck has queue to go back to the previous track when set on random for all cd's in it). 

 

Maybe I got a golden one?

 

It does a very good job with my PS500's, UE7's and X10's.  With my zenhead amp on the lineout I also don't mind the HD800's with the DX50 as a source, either.  So I'm happy, if I had not bought it I would have had a brand new set of UE7's that I was not happy with on my HiSound due to the noise and squelching.

 

Time will tell...oh and it was a seventh batch with FW1.2.2 on it...

 

Forgot to add that my 64Gig card scanned in 4 minutes (59gig filled all flac) and all files recognized as far as I can tell.  My FLAC library was already cleaned and sorted for use on the Hisound so it had a real good chance of working.  The Hisound does not show all the files but eh dx50 does. it does scan for about 3 seconds or so every time I turn it on.

On the subject of software, does anyone have any recommendations for audio file conversion programs on Windows? Trying to find options has been a major pain compared to the apps available of my Mac, the only one I've found that has converted my ALAC library to FLAC without a fuss (xrecode II) ended up creating files double to quadruple their original size :\

I went through mine with a little shell script around ffmpeg. The gist of it is:

 

  ffmpeg -i "track name.m4a" -acodec flac "track name.flac"

 

The script just walks through directories looking for files to transcode. File sizes should be about the same at the end of the run. Mine are a little smaller because I used FLAC's maximum compression.

 

Quick and dirty, untested so make a backup copy of anything first:

 

#!/bin/bash

for ALAC in `find . -type f -name "*.m4a"`; do

  FLAC=`echo $ALAC | sed 's/m4a$/flac/'`

  ffmpeg -i "$ALAC" -acodec flac "$FLAC"

done

Some time ago I found a problem with my file names and the way I was ordering my music collection. I decided to invest some time and put all my Tags in order. It was no easy task, it took me more time than I tought. 

I put the name of the track, the name of the artist and the track number. I added the name of the disc and the year. I use for that purpose this program "mp3Tag" In order to get every mp3 player that I have properly working I removed all the extra info (no comments, no genre, etc) From there I use the Tag information to rename the file like this "Track number. Track name- Artist name" That works for me and have no problem paying such files with my mp3 players (rockboxed clip, iPod Classic, DX50, etc)

It seems very powerful and it is free.

But for someone who doesn't understand the difference between ID3v1, ID3v2 and ID3v2 tags, script language it uses, tag 1, tag2 etc. it's tricky ...........

So to summarize:

Title in the tag is used on the Home Page and the song listing by album, artist, genre and playlist when you get to the level of listing the songs.
The title in the filename is used in the directory and All music listing.
The song order is given by the filename for the sorting order at the song level.
The albums are listed in alphabetical order according to the album tag, the genre is listed alphabetically according to the genre tag and the same with artist.

That's what I observed.

OK - thanks. I understand now

Placed my order on mp4nation on 14th when it was advertised as "now shipping". I contacted them and they said a batch was arriving on 20th. Hopefully I get that batch!

From reading all the threads, bugs, faqs , it seems I have to two things in preparation on my SD micro card which would be helpful to know before finalising them.

1. Remove all tags except for TITLE; ARTIST; ALBUM; TRACK. Fields such as Disc number, comment etc, you should set these to OR just remove the unneeded tags, I guess.

[ BTW in playing around with Kid3 - Mac software - LOL I have managed to remove ALL my tags in all my 90G of music in error but luckily I had copied my iTunes music folder -smily_headphones1.gif, so I can start again. The point is that its wonderful that the software is free but for a first time user, a little tricky. ]

2. Make sure file names are less than 30 characters long and start them with the track number 01, 02 etc.

3. Remove all other files

4. You can store your music in directories eg Artist/Album

Please can you confirm.

If anyone knows a better software tagging and file renaming software (I don't mind paying).

Many thanks

 

Mp3tag gets the renaming done.

Hi guys

I juat bought a microsdhc 64gb. I installed it but my dx50 even though it recognized it, it couldnt copy any files into it. So I plugged it into its micro sd-sd adapter and copied the files into the microsd and then plugged it into my dx50. The problem is that it only would recognize about 15 of the 20gb I copied into it. Some album folders are showed in the menu, but no files in them. I already tried taking off and plugging in the card several times, also some factory resets.

Hope you can help me!
