Hopefully that can get fixed.  At work I like to toggle between using the AK as a dac for media, streaming radio etc but also switch to the internal library.  Not too interested in having to have one cable connected to the back of the PC and another to a power bar.

Also - how can I charge and listen at the same time? USB cable to computer USB port?

 

I don't want to wait to charge the bastard when I get home from work.

From my DX50 days I purchased a pair of S3 batteries and a charger for about $15 allowing me to charge independently and always have a pair of fresh batteries so power was never an issue even on the road. The batteries are tiny and easy to carry, just open the back cover and look at how easy this is. A quick search came up with this:

However, I am sure if you searched/shopped you can get the price lower.

I hope I am not asking too much given your family obligations. Oh, and I want it yesterday! :wink_face:

I've found that once your tags are in order and files named properly, they tend to "just work" with pretty much everything. Ibasso, iTunes, Cowon, A&K, Android devices, XBMC and Sonos. 

 

For automated ripping, artwork, file conversions etc. I use dBPowerAmp. Horrible name, HUGELY powerful software: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/ - Honestly, Head-Fi should sort out some sort of member discount as any and all audiophiles should own this software.

Too bad poweramp doesn't work for Mac.

That Sabre treble sheen on the DX90 kind of goes away and the bass pitch definition has improved. It sounds more textured now. Man that Sabre bass is quick and fast holy. The X5 sounds less congested and muffled and starting to sound more open with slightly better resolution/detail. I'm going all the way to 200.

 

*Now if you don't believe in this kind of stuff that's cool bro. Just leave me and the other crazies alone. I'm leaving you alone too. I just wanted to share so the other crazies know. :beerchug:

I started out as a hardcore skeptic for everything that was "audiophile," but after hearing changes in everything, sometimes dramatic, sometimes subtle I've become a believer.

 

I sincerely believe that some engineer in the future will figure out a simple reason why there is burn-in, while doing some non-related research he will stumble upon it and be like "oh this is odd..."

 

*When I bought my 2nd Fiio X3, compared it next to my 4 month old X3 with like 300 hours on it. It was VERY different. Haha. even my friends who are not into this kind of stuff spotted it easily. The new one has bass bloat and sounded muffled.

Same thing for me XD. I didn't like my dx50 when I first got it. Sounded messy and lifeless. Two weeks later and it sounds much cleaner and energetic! I really like it now.

 

I've had this same thing for most of the Fiio products I've owned. I had a E17 which I used for quite some time(many months) and I noticed how the sound changed as it "broke in". I then compared it to a brand new one I bought and my broken in e17 sounded waaay better imho. Same thing with the X3. I was already used to the E17 sound so my ears should have already been used to the x3 but when I first heard it I was disappointed, it sounded muffled and lacked clarity. Over the course of two weeks to a month the sound reached of what I initially expected it to sound and I was happy.I've had the same experience with the E07k I used to own.

 

I guess I'm one of the crazies!

Cool, I will take a look.

 

It is (A) intuitive like iTunes; (B) complete, easy to use, and well documented; or (C) does it require some getting used to, customization/scripting, training, internet searching, and QandA through forums?

Well I just took a quick listen of my DX90 without burning in and I am impressed. Noticeable improvements over the DX50 is the separation of instruments in a song and the liveliness of the singer. Also I do not have any issues with "é" in my artist or song names. They do not show up as Chinese characters as something else here mentioned. However, I find the same issues exist on the DX90 that occurs on the DX50 (for example, the lag when going into All Music). Also, I like the look of this firmware as the fonts are larger.

 

BTW, I am testing with my jogging earphones, Future Sonics FS1 and they sound bad with everything I've tried un-amped, but not with the DX90.

I'm one of those who run away screaming, arms flailing in the air, whenever I see iTunes so I really wouldn't know. Try it, there's a free 30 day trial I believe :smile:

I just recently received my DX90.  Coming from a J3, which was alright, but this DAP is on a whole other level.  I'm loving the detail of the sound!  I didn't own a DX50, so I just had a couple of questions on the usability of the DX90 that I can't seem to find the answers to.

 

1) Is there support for external playlists (M3U, etc.)?  I am guessing not, since it seems that having non-audio files can cause problems for the player.  If not, is there a way to add songs to an internal playlist by directory?  I can't seem to figure out how to manage playlists other than clicking the [+] button on a song that is playing.  Also, I think I saw it mentioned somewhere in this thread or the DX50 thread that there is no way to rename them.  Would I have to recreate these playlists through the player if I were to do a factory reset, say after a firmware upgrade?

 

2) If I have a directory with sub-directories inside, is there a way to play all the songs inside all of the sub-directories rather than just songs in one level?

I think I need to get one of these leather cases to sexy up my DX90.

Damn - those are as sexy as any of the A&K leather cases - where do you buy? (oh god, more $$)

Is it correct that the DX90 asks at every switch on 'if you wish to scan card'? I didn't notice it a few days ago .... But then was probably too excited to just hear it!
post #3660 of 13841
No it only ask when you swap cards
