WOW. just listening 1.2.2 for the first time..
and i am sure again why i bought this, and why i am reading and sharing with people who care about sound..
detail, soundstage and with gapless on 5 sec even proper gapless playback.
1.2.7 is - apart from the finally stable UI - a step in the wrong direction ibasso!
if i want a laid back "allrounder" sound why wouldnt i go to buy a sansa clip for 40 bucks??
I'm pretty sure some people have different impression than you do in between firmware versions. I don't think iBasso has taken any step to any direction when it comes to SQ.
