Hey guys I have a question.

Anybody uses their DX90 with JDS Labs C5?
If so do they pair well together?

I'm not the type of basshead who would shell out for cannons or even Velodyne vPulses but I'd like the option of dialing up the bass a notch or two.  I'd like to get some opinions from the majority of you regarding eternal portable amplifiers and the DX90.  Specifically, I'm looking to spend no more than about $150 right now and I want to maintain as much accuracy as possible in the mix while boosting the lower frequencies.  I'd really like to avoid bass bleed or drowning out my highs/mids.

1)  Yes or no—does it make good sense to use an external amplifier with the DX90 to reshape the sound signature in the way I've described above?
2)  What brands/models would you recommend for this, if any?

Thanks in advance to anyone who's willing to take a few minutes to educate a noob.

Like the other fellow has mentioned, if you would like stronger bass, try the DX90 EQ first. Actually the DX90 EQ is quite good and does not degrade the sound. If you are using IEM, try some different tips for possible better sealing. IMO, good sealing affects the bass response the most for IEM.

I am in the camp to use external amp to bring the most out from the DX90. But the main benefits for me using an external amp is to have even better soundstage and instrument separation. A bigger sound stage would sometimes give an illusion of being "hollow" and weaker, not "in your face" kind of bass response.

I use the Arrow 4G to pair with the DX90 to use with the Yamaha EPH-100. Occassionally I do use the Arrow bass boost function but not always. The good sealing of the EPH-100 tips give enough bass response to me. If you are interested, the Arrow 3G with the even stronger bass boost will be available used for around $150.

No, but this one is damn good in terms of measurements.  Pico Power.

Try a higher rated charger. I think the Samsungs might need a true 1a or higher charger with the DX90. Might have something to do with the battery's charging protection chip.

Hi Guys,

 

Touchscreen of  DX90  is too sensitive making almost impossible to scroll and select a directory.  Scrolling down is very tough. Have you guys noticed this issue too..if yes then is there any fix for it.

I do have screen protection (supplied with Ibasso) on it.

 

I bought DX90 from ProStudio (Through Amazon) and shipping was fast . I am happy with them.

 

 

Thanks for your help,

Anil

@AnilKumar Have you installed the latest firmware 2.05 ? It improve the response of the touch screen (less sensitive).

post #6570 of 8228

Thanks for quick response. Yes, I have applied new firmware. It did not help. :(
