i hate it (gapless) for this firmware version. i had to turn it off for now.
Update regarding my DX50 freezing issues. I was able to go the past couple days with no freezes at all, yet randomly it always comes back. Such as just 30 minutes ago, froze once after 2 days of perfectly. Rebooted, played a couple songs and froze again in the middle of a different song. Rebooted again, started playing a different album entirely, froze a third time a couple songs later. This is a sign I need to stop using this to listen to music for the day. Let it have a nap or something.
Right now it has a 64 gb sandisk microsd card in it bought new from amazon specifically for the DX50. Since replacing it is one thing I have not tried, I ordered a new 64 gb transcend microsd card, and also a new usb 3.0 microsd card adapter. Will copy all my music to this new card, stick it in the DX50 with another factory reset and see what happens.
The way I see it there is either two outcomes from here:
1. The new sd card works and it no longer freezes. The sandisk sd card can then be considered bad, and the DX50 doesn't know how to deal with this properly.
2, The DX50 continues to still freeze with the new sd card. In which case, screw it, I'll have two working microsd cards ready for sticking into the Fiio x5 when I am able to get one.
If #1 is true I will no longer be tempted or motivated to getting the Fiio. But if it's not I'll have to jump ship.
It's in iBasso's hands now. :)
Same here. Gapless issues are a total dealbreaker for me. 1.2.6 is the first firmware update I haven't adopted (except for the 1.2.3beta with its horrendous bass boost - that lasted about 5 minutes on my DX50).
I'm also weary of the "increased bass perofrmance" people have reported over 1.2.6. Is it boosted, or just tighter/more refined?
There was a lot of discussion earlier in the thread about the best IEMs to mate with the DX50. I remain mystified by the RE-400s. I don't get how such a highly reviewed IEM can sound so godawful, and not just with the DX50.
Until now, the only IEM I could live with was the $12 Audio Technica ATH-CLR100.
I just got the Vsonic VSD1S based on some recommendations in this thread. My impressions can be condensed into just one word: WOW!
