And for real the DX90 is not a flashlight as I think.

 



I walk a lot during the day, and since I live in a tropical climate, the sun can get quite bright with clear skies. The screen can get illegible during these times if I don't set it at its brightest. Indoors and during the night, keeping it halfway is good enough.

I think a shortcut for brightness at the homescreen is definitely not an absolute necessity, but it would improve usability a lot.

It's not an advertisment, but just search for "dignis dx90" if anyone interested.


 



Pics please. smily_headphones1.gif I am interested in this case as well. smily_headphones1.gif Thanks!

Pictures are available in many places, just searched on Google or you can go to the brand's official website:)
I'm using the brown one too, fits perfectly and looks really gorgeous on my dx90

If anyone wants to part with their Dignis case, let me know.

I tried the 2.1.8. L0 all the week, and found it as good as the 2.1.5. L2

 

The improvements, such as better instruments separation and bigger soundstage, are quite noticable on my Sennheiser Momentum :smile:

The issue may be that FLAC files should not be tagged witrh ID3, rather with Vorbis comment.  MP3Tag is freeware and handles this correctly, using ID3 for MP3 and Vorbis for FLAC..

Yes, deleting the tags and rewrite them with mp3tag solves the problem.
post #11556 of 13841
2.1.5 was fine,rewriting all tags will take forever 😢
post #11557 of 13841

Some time ago I flashed my DX90 back to 2.1.5 but the sound of the 2.1.8 made me return... and I had to rewrite some tags, MP3Tag have a lot of automated options for helping you.

Btw, I discovered that turning backlight to zero,screen still is lightly illuminated when briefly pressing power button to turn it off.

The only question is WHY?! DX90 has decent amp, capable drive even HD650, not to mention low impedance IEM's.

The DX90 definitely doesn't need an amp for iems. I mate my DX90 with o2 amp when at home to drive my full size headphones though. I love the sound from both configurations.

You are right but I hear more air when driving my LE3 with E12Diy and Muses02 inside :)

I've never seen a definitive answer to whether the DX90 can comfortably drive the HD650s.Have you actually tried this combo yourself? Does anyone else have a positive opinion on this?
post #11564 of 13841

The reason why an amp is not recommended for iems is apart from the fact that dx90 amp is plenty capable,you end up colouring the sound and don't get the pure,unadulterated ibasso sound.For example the cayin c5 which i have adds a warmth to the signature,the vocals are more intimate,the soundstage expands but because it emphasizes the mids and lows (bass boost is very good if you have an iem lacking)you lose some of that sparkle up high which dx90 is known and again the tonality changes.On the whole while i would recommend the c5 because it's a good combination with dx90 especially headfones you should know that the sound signature won't be the same and that's true for most amps.

I would imagine it sounds great but if you like your music on the louder side, like I do, you will probably want to use an amp.

 

It's night and day for me with my Philips L1 when I plug up my O2.
