I received my DX90 and have had a little listen. So far, it sounds pretty good but - not sure that it's massively better than my DX50 so far (this is with my Momentums and UE900s). So, I'm thinking, perhaps the need to burn-in is real.
So I tried to shuffle the whole contents of my SD card (which I just moved over from my DX50 without hassle) but I can't seem to do it? When I select All music, it only shows albums that I've already played? Just 4 or 5 so far..
I'm not sure if this is a result of still being on the original FW (I wanted to at least give it a try) or because I don't understand how the All music / genre / artist etc works, as I've only ever used the directory structure to date??
Any ideas please? I do hope that with some burn-in and with the new FW, I'll be more impressed...
With burn-in the DX90 does get a lot better (IMHO, of course)…
To shuffle all your music: hit lower left corner ("My Music"), then All Music, then if you touch the "All music" caption on the top center (the one with the orange down arrow), a list of options to order the database by appears. I personally touch on Artist (this has the effect of ordering the database by artist if you later on select the Now Playing option, so that you may easily select a different song by the same artist while still remaining in shuffle everything mode), then hit anything to start shuffling.
To check if everything is in the all music tab, either try ordering by different options (title, added, album etc), or browse by album/artist on the "my music menu". What you see is what is IN the database… If you realize that you do NOT have everything in the database, probably the sd card was not scanned completely - either eject and reinsert, and then select "scan card" rather than "browse", or hit "settings=>advanced=>rescan library". If this does not work, delete the extra files on the sd card (the audio_data folder, or whatever this is called - I'm going from memory), then redo the same.
And this is exactly the same on the DX50, so I do hope I'm not boring you
