i like the changes except the background.i liked the old one better..i wish they could let us choose the background.not a big issue though...
and i have problems with Gapless too. back to 1.2.5
Hi all, just got my DX50 from advanced MP3 players 3 days ago, I'm in the UK and received my dap with FW1.2.5. It sounded great on my AKG 545's on gain number 2. I just updated to 1.2.6 and tthe sound is so much better and gain set to 1. I also tried my Panasonic noise cancelling RP-HC300 and Brainwavz HM5's. Much prefer the AKG headphones. I don't need an amp as this little player sounds amazing. I was using a Cowon J3 and just removed the Sandisk 32Gb micro SD card and put it in the DX50, it scanned and was good to go. I must admit I'm very anally retentive about tagging much to the annoyance of my wife (thinks I'm just wasting time). But my music plays on anything :) I have to say it was this thread that made me buy this DAP and I cannot thank all who contributed enough.
I'd quite like to have the album art as the background. Maybe one day.
Even with firmware 1.2.5 I still have a slight gap between songs (maybe 0.5 second). Has anyone found a way to get album artist to show on vorbis? The DX50 appears to use the album artist tag which AFAIK vorbis does not support.
I'm in audio heaven, just sat here and played:
Trigg & Gusset - Legacy of The Witty ( ambient jazz)
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.
i also dont find the EQ to be very effective. The difference between max and min is definitely not 12 dB for me.
on the other hand. sound is improved a bit :) bass does have a lil more punch and soundstage is a bit wider.
look forward to seeing more improvements!
The EQ is in the firmware. The chip contains mute, volumeand phase reversal
This is why the various DAPs using this same chip have EQs with different numbers of bands, different frequency centers for each band, subtractive or additive, different Q, etc.
