Apologies for asking this again, but what is the burn-in cable?

It's about simplification. Why keep a separate DAC when you are at home sitting on your desk if your DAP is very well capable of doing the same function.

You don't want to keep buying SD Cards, you will never get to the same level of storage as desktop hard drives or NAS.

 

Given that DX90 has no effectively very limited internal storage and just a single micro SD slot, the USB DAC function is the easiest way of playing music files from your already massive music library sitting at home and still use your favorite media player.

 

 

I don't see any reason why new DAPs with USB interface not supporting this function.

Does the PB2 add much compared to listening just to the Dx90?

I don't really understand why they haven't thought about that while every other competitor can do it.

Yep this seriously sucks :angry_face: Just cancelled my order because of this. Looks like I'll have to stick to my X5 for a little longer (and keep a close eye on the Calyx M :biggrin:)

Equivilent?Mac OSX has the power of BSD under the hood, not equivilent at all. Of course you may prefer one to another.

Sorry i traced the threads and is confused. Seems someone said the USB DAC works on PC but not Mac, others said the USB DAC does not work at all due to no driver. Can anyone confirm the USB DAC is working or not? On which platform?

post #3474 of 13841
All iBasso have to do is release a driver for Mac. I'm sure they'll release a driver for Mac support soon....no...?

Does the dx50 work as a usb dac then on the mac? If so I don't see why there is an issue with the dx90.
post #3477 of 13841
I think the best way to find out is to contact iBasso and get their confirmation because I'm seriously contemplating on getting the DX90 until I hear about the non Mac support. That's a bummer for me.

Neither DX50 nor DX90 work as a usb dac as of this moment. Both have been promissed to do so at some point in the future and the option to do so is already in the settings menu on the DX90 but the driver for the computer has not been released yet. As to the Mac support question I have no idea, it has not been specifically addressed by iBasso what os's they will support other than the e-mail Jamato mentions

If this DAP is not USB Audio 2.0 compliant, linux users have less hope to get a driver :redface:

 

I would like to play high res files at home on my ubuntu workstation and FLAC on the go. I'm waiting for confimations before ordering an X5 or DX90.

 

Edit : USB Audio 2.0 is natively supported in the kernel by OSX and Linux. Only Windows need a driver.

Thanks. Will keep observing on the beta testing results until the usb dac update has come.
