So the bass really blend to the mids? How about the treble?

I do prefer the sound of this update. More even sounding. Subtle changes but I now like the sound with gapless engaged. I no longer have a preference for inverted or not. The gapless leans it out just a tad and adds a touch of presence to give a perspective of tightening it up that appeals to me. My gain preference is still medium. On less good files, I can vacillate between sharp and slow roll but on the best files always prefer slow. A fun 15min of listening to the new FW.

I got some feeling that the bass is blended into mid region.:(

Make sure to do a factory reset. Try med gain with gapless engaged. I actually think this FW is more even sounding as the players natural tendency seems to be a hair warm. The last FW had a touch extra presence which I think is what you're hearing. Fast roll also tightens things up if you feel it's needed. I'm enjoying it in slow roll with these setting (and the Samsung battery).:smile:

I'll just listen it for a day and see. Actually its not disappointing, fun signature like the first time I got the dx90.

Agree, just updated from 2.0. This version is not bad as I used slow roll off. All UI and compatible with sound files are improved.

I can still get some stuttering on 24/192 if I start winding it back and forth like when testing preferences but it never happens in normal play. That hasn't changed with any of the FWs but I don't consider it a big deal. Reselect the track and it's fine. No one actually listens to music that way.

Listening to 2.1.0 now. I don't think it has a boosted bass relative to 2.0.5. Not sure if it has a little less but I don't think it has boosted bass.

I listening it right now too, also I don't think there's any changes on the bass, don't think there is less bass too from 2.0.5

I noticed the menus have gotten more sensitive again. :(  It's much harder to navigate the menus without arbitrarily going into the wrong setting/category than the previous firmware...

Would like to go for update, but when i realized that i will lose all my "playlists", i don't want, and i'm hesitating.

could you tell me please how to save my playlist, and get them after the update of the new firmware ?

thx in advance for your support

Thanks to tin for letting us get a jump on the new FW.

 

I'm listening now and, though the changes are subtle, I think they've made an improvement. It sounds to me a little less warm, but smoother. I don't notice any changes in the bass. Overall, I like it.

I tested new FW now about 30 minut - 2.1.0 have less bass then 2.0.5, but more punchy and maybe subjectively very very little stronger. It is good :L3000:. I will see for next days if new FW is for me better, but first impression - I like this.

My impression with FW2.1 with Slow Roll-off filter and LO to Arrow 4G:

 

With Gapless Off: The mid/vocal range is much boosted, making the bass and sub-bass range much less prominent. I listened to one particular vocal track known with subtle sub-bass, and with FW2.1 the sub bass is almost undetectable. This is the worst ever sound coming out from the DX90

With Gapless On: The mid/volcal range is not boosted, tonal balance is quite similar to FW2.0.5, but sound stage just has no depth.

 

The fact that setting Gapless on/off makes such a big difference on sound indicates this FW2.1 is just buggy.

 

After going back to FW2.0.5, the sound stage and sub-bass come right back. This is the firmware I shall keep using.
