In this one regard, the DX50 now sounds like Foobar, or an iPod, or the X5 (which got this right out of the gate) etc. That is what iBasso has accomplished and kudos to them. I am pleased.
Couldn't have said it better. I still use my DX50 mainly in my commute, but i'd love to have more time to listen to it. And i haven't even put DSD files in it yet (too lazy to try and rip). I'm very content with this firmware, i just hope it doesn't change the SQ for the next one...
