One volume step is not 1 dB. It's about 1/2 dB assuming that maximum volume (255) correlates to around 130 dB.

Leonard Cohen - Ten New Songs (folk)
Deep Forest & Rahul Sharma - Deep India (World, electronic)
London Grammar - If You Wait (Pop)
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (Progressive Rock)

For a portable DAP iBasso have cracked the market.

You are right! Listening Led Zeppelin II 24/92 on this was amazing... To not talk about Creedence.....today I was very pleased with their songs with Senn hd598.. Susie Q was greatly reproduced smily_headphones1.gif I love this player....

Thanks. I found it interesting that the EQ steps seem to match the volume steps and the connection seemed logical.

Did you perform a factory reset?
Yes to both of those. I did the update just like any other time but for some reason it does not update to the new firmware. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

It's weird cause it should have. My best advice is to download again from the FAQ page and extract the file onto the DX50 and try again, you should get it to work. That's exactly how I did it.

It is very logical. :)

 

The volume steps and the EQ band attenuation are related as they originate in the same voltage changes.

Forget it. I figured it out.

post #8171 of 18427

So, having had scanning problems on my DX50 ever since it came out, it has finally completed a full scan of my SD card. At this point, I am perfectly happy with the player, and it seems more stable in general. This is the player it should have been when it was released, and I'm glad I stuck it out. I feel like it is now a player I would recommend to others (held back on recommendations due to my experience with the DX50, all major quibbles have now been remedied).

I either don't know how to use the timer feature or it ain't working. I played a 80 minute music session and even though I set the timer to 30 minutes, it kept going until the end.

I haven't had a chance to listen yet but did the update with no issues and it scanned my 45MB's in about 6 minutes or so. That's a major improvement over the 20 minutes before. Now to see if all of my music is showing.

The background is OK and I think the album artwork when browsing by album looks clearer. Or maybe my mind is open to suggestions from the prior comments. wink.gif

I have to admit, it's fun learning of these FW updates and experimenting. Geeking out here. wink.gif

Great update iBasso, great update.

post #8175 of 18427

The past few pages of EQ talk has been getting kinda confusing.  I just want my DX50 set to neutral; basically I like to listen to my music as it was recorded.  What should I set my player settings at?  Should I leave EQ off, but I heard when set to 'Off' it isn't totally neutral?  If I turn EQ on and set to custom what should I set the sliders at?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
