Thanks.. Just really wondering about it. But if its not advisable better stick to the HO.. Im using a 16ohms ciem thats why i was just asking..

you can try it and see(hear) the difference. It's not gonna fry your phone or something. just don't max out the volume.

Trust me...I have.  With all due respect...there is so much banter here about shipping times, etc...it's hard to find just simple reviews.  Thus my question.

I would love to hear from someone with experience with WMD6C....for comparison purposes.  Perhaps a better way to say it would be does the DX90 sound as good as vinyl?  I like analog...and have never had a digital player....

The impedance on the LO is higher and the fact it's bypassing the amp very unlikely you'll blow your iems. I have done it a few times either accidentally or on purpose and I can safely report that they are functioning just fine with no side effects whatsoever but remember that the purpose of LO is to bypass the amp and to eventually feeding it into one. wink.gif

The MZ-RH1 Hi-MD MiniDisc Walkman already was quite an improvement over the WM-D6C audio cassette Walkman; now, the DX100 just blows the RH1 away. It seems the DX90 comes quite close to the DX100 to those who have compared both, so I think it's safe to assume the DX90 shouldn't disappoint you.

And I wouldn't bother ripping your vinyl records unless you have them in absolute pristine condition and possess a state of the art turntable, cartridge, phono preamp and ADC set-up of over 3k€ or if they are super rare and unavailable at HDtracks, Qobuz & Co. More hassle than its worth.

No noise on mine (unless I choose the wrong track/genre that I might consider to be noise :P ). It's been silent for me as a solid state should be both from the phone out and line out.

No noise or hiss of any kind for me neither

I am calling it. If this firmware/driver actually makes it out on time, I will change my sig to "Home Rig: Laptop>Beats Executive>Idiot Brain, Work Rig: iPad>Beats Executive>Idiot Brain, Porta-rig>iPhone 5S (GOLD EDITION)>Beats Executive>Idiot Brain"

You sir, made me laugh :D

Can anyone of you do a quick playback test of this DXD 352.8 kHz track - Vivaldi: Recitative and Aria from Cantata RV 679, "Che giova il sospirar, povero core" Tone Wik & Barokkanerne (period instruments) from 2L? There is a very loud constant hissing background sound during playback on the DX90 I tried which is not heard on my PC, AK120 or on the AK240. I am not sure what is the issue with DX90 or if it is a bug.

I'm not sure the DX90 supports DXD.. it's not listed as a feature on the iBasso website. http://ibasso.com/en/products/show.asp?ID=83

Maybe you should write to iBasso support.

guys any comparisons between the jds labs c5d, regarding sound quality?

 

thanks!

To be completely fair. DSD isn't listed either and I've had 100% amazing playback of all my DSD stuff on the DX90. I can't really comment on DXD though, because I don't own any DXD rips.

Sure. So that means DSD is inofficially supported and DXD isn't.:)
