Hi,

Thank you for your email.

The USB driver is not ready.  We are now working on it.  We should able to release the driver very soon.
Sincerely

iBasso Audio

Lol, that made me laugh. What's the point of releasing the firmware if the driver is not ready yet. confused.gif

I guess when I'll get mine, assuming I won't cancel or return it before that. I am going to plug it on my Mac and test it. It should connect right away. To be honest not too thrilled about their response. This should be available out of the box.

I suppose it will work right away on MacOS X. They just have not done the drivers for windows yet.

No kidding and the majority of computer users are PC so go figure.

I wonder if the USB dac implementation is the same as the X5, if so their driver might just work with it. biggrin.gif

I too have an aging Cowon S9 32GB which I'd like to replace (because of limited space) - thinking seriously about the FiiO X5 or the iBasso DX90.  Just curious, how would you compare the S9 (with BBE sound) vs the DX90 without??  I've always been a fan of Cowon (because of BBE) - but everyone is saying that I on't miss it once going to the DX90 or X5 - What do you say??

Disappointing indeed. But at least USB DAC function will be coming for sure. I might be able to let ho of my hifi-m8. Simplifying my setup further.

Leaving on a business trip and have had no communication from iBasso. Requested a tracking number and they don't respond.

Not overly impressed with their lack of communication.

The only problem is that you got no idea when, could be next month, in 3 months, a year who knows?

Hey the Calyx M is there for that. wink.gif

Remember the saying one bird in a hand is worth two in the bush.

Lets just say iBasso better do it soon. This is one of the feature that many people are anticipating/expecting

Agreed I only have two: great HO for portability on the move and USB DAC that's it, the rest is extra I can go without. So far it looks like the first is available but the second is missing.

Got it for an afternoon smily_headphones1.gif (I guess all of us beta pigs in HK received it this afternoon). While I'm not a believer in gear burn in, I would share my impressions after more time with it.

Got a feeling that 'You will receive Tracking info Tomorrow' might have been a stock response to my webmail yesterday?

Does the player automatically stop playing the song when the phone out and the line out are unplugged? (and not only the line out like the DX50)

It's iRiver who's using XMOS chip and it's for driving DSD natively to the CS4398 dual dacs.

FIIO is using the Thesycon driver but not XMOS?  You sure?

 

Further research it looks like they use the Tenor.  Interesting.
