You are wrong because the answer Ibasso about using the DX50 as a USB DAC:

 

Hi,
Thank you for your email.
We will try to develop the USB-DAC function for the DX50 in the near future.

Sincerely

Yes, I think this is normal. Particularly with sensitive BA e.g. 1plus2

Yeah, I understand that. Is a clean signal supposed to sound poorly?

The LO has a higher impedance than the HO which affects your headphone/IEM. Which may sound poor - bass dampening etc..

I would advise you not to use it with an amp that's potentially worse than the amp section in the DX50 otherwise it's pointless.

 

This.

 

I've been researching amplifiers because of the extollations about outboard amplifiers in this thread. DX50's amp is good. Very good. Better than any entry-level portable amp out there and better than some amps in the $100-$200 range. Around $150 is where I've started seeing amplifiers worth bothering with.

 

And then sanity takes hold. Don't buy an amp for DX50. Buy an amp for the headphones you want to use, and be sure that the headphones you want to use can actually take advantage of an amplifier. Otherwise you're wasting money.

 

Edit: I expect someone's going to ask me, "what amp do you recommend?" I don't, because I don't have your headphones or your ears. But if I were to get an amp it'd probably be a JDS Labs C5. It sounds good, is reasonably sized (about the same footprint as DX50), has decent battery life (about the same as DX50), and is affordably priced.

A small number of people on here have experienced small issues like this. Most of the time, it's not a lasting problem. If it freezes up on you, a quick restart (hold down power button) is usually all that's needed.

 

iBasso just doesn't have the manpower like Microsoft and Apple to ensure the firmwares are perfect.

Sometimes it happens to me due to the static that I get from my clothing. A quick restart will resolve the problem.

Gee I wish people could use nicer language than "You are wrong...."!

Cancerf1, for your info, iBasso advised other members that a USB-DAC was not possible more than once and reported earlier in this thread several times. The post you've quoted is a complete backflip and surprise for many. Clearly you are new to Head-Fi but if you want to be respected, be cautious with your posts and read the whole 500+ pages before posting.

"It appears iBasso has reversed its position...." Is a lot more polite and factual.

End of rant....

Lol watch your heart rate. I guess a lot of new members just eager to contribute. Then again who would read 500+ pages of post just to look up a topic. The search function is not so reliable most of the time.

If Ibasso indeed implement the USB DAC funtion then it's going to be sweet. For me, it makes DX50 a one size fits all device for my listening pleasure needs.

Sorry to bother, but does anyone have a mirror for the 1.2.3 beta firmware? I can't access the one on iBasso's website since I get an "unauthorised" message.
