Update - firmware to be released today confirmed ibasso

For screen protectors contact ibasso. Mine were defective so ibasso has shipped new ones and i paid for the shipping only. Great service by ibasso.

I won't bother. It's a step back compared to DX90's built in amp in terms or power, detail and clarity. Yes I had it once and found UHA-6SMKII better but also doesn't make much difference against DX90's amp at least for IEMs.

About the firmware update:

 

Not eaasy to find in the thread what version th efirst batch of players came equipped with.

 

FYI

I just received my DX 90 from Ibasso. It came with V.2.0.0 installed

Under USB settings I can choose storage or DAC

My guess is, that this is the newest firmware and others will have it soon as well

 

Havent tried the DAC functionalty yet, but that will happen soon

 

Out of the box the sound is more energetic, more dynamic than my DX50

 

I use Sennheisers ie8 earbuds

 

 

Isn't hifi a nice and harmless hobby?

 

Enjoy!

2.0.0 is the original fw that all units so far has come with. Dac wont work until the driver has been released which was supposed to be yesterday for 32 bit Windows. No date for 64 bit Windows nor for Mac if that will ever happen

I take back the above statement. The DX90 is continually changing with more burn time! DX90 At the 75 hour burn mark I clearly preferred my ZX1 sound, But now At 125 hour burn I am calling them nearly even (ZX1 only a hair ahead), I am feeling that with further burn the DX90 will easily overtake and surpass the ZX1.

Yep, I'm at 125 hours burn, and the sound is changing for the better gradually , the issues I had with the sound are lessened compared to the 75 hour burn time listen. I think I have a proper grasp on where the sound is heading now, I can say I feel ashamed for doubting iBasso for a second! The DX90 is "burning" up to be a fantastic sounding dap.

I found that on some sophisticated equipment the big changes came at 400 hrs, 600 hrs, and again at 800 hrs.  When it happens it is amazing -- like throwing a switch that turns on the SQ.

 

:eek: I salute you for reaching 800 hours burn in! I may continue to burn mine in after 400 too, why not i say :D

I notice the most significant change was after passing the 200 hour mark. Especially on the lower end it sounded like it flattened a bit compared to the warmish sound out of the box. It was noticeably a bit tighter and details a bit clearer.

When it crossed the 200 hrs mark I thought something was wrong with my Roxanne because it shed some weight/thickness on it's overall presentation. But then I check back with my DX50 on stock FW and the thick heavy sound was still there.

I found some interesting thing about dx90.
Someone post the dx90 balance PO mod on the official ibasso forum.

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3045838431?lp=5028&is_bakan=0&mo_device=1

Just curious how much improvement on this mod..
