Where i can get ac adapter for dx 50?
this works to charge dx 50?
or you can get one of those ac to usb adapters, with an output of 5V, 1A - you can use the supplied usb cable of the dx50 for charging.
second day with DX50, and i love this DAP. listened to a few albums including 24bit recordings and changed IEMs in process.
used Tralucent 1p2, RDB+ v1 and TPeos H200 for audition.
of all IEMs 1p2 excelled the best possible way (sorry for having bias here :)
V1 came a distant second (good overall result)
H200 did not so well and i did not like overall result (was quite opposite of RWAK on which H200 surpassed v1, i suspect RWAK does not like V1 for whatever reason).
material listened (easily find on Youtube):
Peter Gabriel - Live in Athens
Chris Botti - Night Sessions
Celine Dion - The best of Celine Dion & David Foster
Clannad - Nadur
first of all, i found DX50 really effortless in conveying all subtle details to the listener, mind this DX50 is a very musical player too. this will not beat RWAK100 but is very good on its own and an absolute winner for the price.
second, checking Gain switchers i preferred Low Gain as this kept lowest possible noise and clean sound. i tried high gain and mid position but did not like either.
third, operation wise i found no irks... DX50 works well and i was lucky not to have any glitches until present. i set power management to Off, gapless on 5sec, EQ to Custom with all sliders put to Zero, volume at 200-220 depending on recorded material.
all in all DX50 is very organic sounding DAP, plenty of music detail, perhaps amp section on DX50 could be slightly better to help it increase stage height and black space (also to help some dynamics) but for 250$ i have no real complain here.
tried briefly line out of DX50 with IEMs, for me this did not work and made no sense to use with IEMs. will try this for external amping.
i still have to try DX50 with T1 and BH to see if amping makes sense.
Thanks, very helpful feedback on the QCs! :-) (especially thanks for warning me against the QC3, I won't touch these then - it explains why so many of them are being sold 2nd-hand on ebay...) - so I'll hunt for some QC15 if my RE-400s + Comply foam tips don't help with the dx50 on my next long travel...
About the track tag renumbering, it didn't work for me (but maby I did the wrong thing).
Now listening to Al Stewart's Uncorked (and just before had some Piazzolla) - sounds great (am still on 1.2.2) :-D
Not straightforward to me, either, but once you dive in there`s really very little that doesn`t make sense.
Don`t regret your choice of the dx50 - it has a great DAC. And your Graham Slee Voyager has NONE ! The Voyagers`s USB input is only for drawing power, not for imputing musical data. So you`ll just be using analogue in from the dx50s dac, through either the Headphone socket or the Lineout socket; the latter is noticeably better sounding through my amp and my HD800s. The Voyager`s role will be to provide more/better power to your headphones, but that is all - no digital to analogue activities happening in that box! (If I read the Graham Slee specs correctly, that is)
You won`t regret the improved sound from the dx50 over the iPod, as well as the freedom to use SD cards and drag-drop music files in unlimited formats and resolutions. It`s a huge step up from iDevice-land.
And yes, that desktop amp has Coax, Optical and USB interfaces.
Just another suggestion:
I paired the DX50 with the iBasso D12 Anaconda as a digital transport and I could say that the sound was amazing. Out of this stack you could connect the D12 into your tube amp from the tube amp analog in, I assume that your tube amp can do that. This would give you a sound that even an iPod connected to anything cannot match (D12 has double WM8740 DACS paired in a dual mode).
As such the DX50 has a better output than even the iPod Classic 7th gen (I know because I used to own one and sold it because of that).
This is just a suggestion. Note that there might be other amps that could also take the DX50 digital coax in like the Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII.
What' nice about the DX50 is it is pretty flexible and the sound is unbeatable at the price point.
As already mentioned, the Graham Slee Voyager does not have a digital input; its USB port is solely for powering the unit.
I expect the DX50 to sound better than your iPod in this application. I believe you will be pleased.
