You mean when you connect it through the D12 using the digital out and the earphones are connected through the D12 HO, you hear the drop when the EQ is enabled? Did you try to change the custom EQ settings and see if the D12 HO reflects the change?

Yes changing EQ setting does affect sound go through the D12. The different EQ presets have different sounds through headphones. I left custom sliders all at 0 dB setting and went to another one Bass and pulled them all down to -6 dB and the sound drop when you switch between the 2.

 

Edit: They could be using an external Digital filter in their setup, WD8740 has that ability.

great.. finally today it has arrived.

 

jesus, does this sound clear! eq off, lo setting, with rockit r-50 iems, ernest ranglin - below the bassline.

i dont wanna know what happens when u plug in some bass heavy phones ;)

for the moment more than enough bass in this combo (fw. 1.2.6), mids come clear and detailed, but the high hat is king.

cant wait to try some sweet nina simone..

 

pure bliss.

 

ps. imo soundstage is not extremely wide, but as far as i understood fw 1.2.2 is wider, but has quite less bass, correct?

The 1.2.6 is working just great for me!

The WM8740 has a very elementary internal digital filter (a sharp or slow roll-off) unlike the WM8741 and the output of the filter is fed internally through the dac to eventually output into the analog lines out. It does allow the internal digital filter to be bypassed by an external one so my feeling is that the digital out is tapped off that iBasso designed external filter instead of the DAC input.

Thanks that is useful information that can be added to the DX50 manual.

today i decided to put protective screen supplied by iBasso, which happened to be complete rubbish, more so major problem was the sticker on folie which you must gently peel off, sadly sticker really sticks or better say sucks so glue remains on screen and removing this was hard.

overall protective screen is low quality, sticker sticks and sucks and whole experience was let down. no way could remove small bubbles. thing sucks

now i confess i like iBasso less for three reasons:

1- screen protector sucks, low quality, small sticker glued like hell and difficult to remove
2- USB cable junk, cheap, has connectivity issues and can go to waste bin
3- silicon case is made of real cheap silicon and collects dust like hell...

so in the end the only thing worth in the package is DX50 itself, the rest can be thrown out including cheapo packaging frown.gif

Is the silicone case that bad gintaras?
I didn't have any problems with my screen protector, easily applied and no bubbles.

I also had problems with screen protector and turned out, I was applying it the wrong way.

Here is what I suggest: pack everything up and send it to me, I'll be happy to dispose of it for you wink.gif

How does the iBasso DX50 compare to the AK100? Is the Astell Kern worth the extra money?

Lol didn't think of that.
Been running the new fw for a couple days. Best update for me, scans so much quicker and no freezing issues like I had on previous updates.
I like the sound a lot, gapless doesn't bother me at all.
So a thumbs up from me!

So, new question, anyone have it where the internal memory of the drive won't mount when you plug it in a computer?  The SD card mounts, but the internal memory disappeared after formatting it. 

 

*Edit - Fixed it, nvm :)
