Files: Flac/Alac  16/44.1

Times: 16hrs plus

 

This just the first charged, I think it will improve the battery life after few charges

Still no sign of any SQ changes, these need to test it back to back few times

 

Below is some pictures

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whoa! :eek:  How can I get one of those sent to the U.S.?  If it was posted earlier, I missed it... :popcorn:

I really could use one!  Do they make a rubber case for it?

Hey everyone,

 

In iBasso's efforts to improve the DX90 firmware, are they working on being able to support multiple playlists?  I ask because there is a thread with FiiO working a beta X5 firmware where you can build playlists on a PC and transfer them to the player.  It's still a work in progress but the fact that they are working on supporting multiple playlists (without RockBox) is starting to edge out the DX90 (in my book at least) for practical applications.  If iBasso can implement multiple playlist support (and with the extended battery and cover in the above post), I think the DX90 would regain its lead!

 

Thoughts?

Cheers and All the Best!:beerchug:

PS - But it would be nice for them to address playlists in the future...

You can create as many playlists as you want on the DX90, however you can't name them, nor can you transfer outside playlists to the DX90. When updating firmware, all saved playlists will be lost.

Hey guys I'm looking to buy the DX90 but I have some questions first.

How does the DX90 fare against the iPod Classic 7th Generation?

I don't mind ripping my CD's to ALAC 16/44, although I prefer FLAC 16/44.

I have an MacBook Pro and a iMac, so I'm on OS X but would rip my CD's with XLD.

I play FLACS/ALAC in Fidelia.
They don't sound to good in iTunes.

I'm not a fan of Andriod but I love the look of the DX90.

I decided not to go with the Fiio X5 due to its design, I actually like the look of the X3 and DX90 better.

I would be paring the DX90/iPod Classic with the JDS Labs C5D and Beyersdynamic DT-770 250 OMS.

Any help I would be appreciative.

Yeah, that's what FiiO are trying to address in their X5 firmware (M3U support):

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/725253/fiio-x5-beta-firmware-2-04beta-2-05beta-download-and-discussion-improvement-of-playlist-and-cue-handling

 

It's a pain in the backside to have to re-accomplish playlists anytime I update the firmware, and I usually try to have 6 to 8 playlists available on a player at one time.  I'm sure I can't be the only one...

...and being able to name them would be nice as well.:wink_face:  It's really the only thing I see missing from the DX90.

I don't have the iPod but from everything I have read, the DX90 is better and some say much better. 

 

The DX90 isn't really doing Android. It is a software by iBasso. The Dx90 will play most all formats from ALAC, FLAC, WAV, up to 24/192 and will play DSF (DSD) files and converts them to 24/88. The weight is great and for me, the UI is very simple, to the point and easy to navigate.

I had help you guys checked for the availability on the international market but unfortunately the supplier Jaben China said they are not sure of it:(. At the moment no casing available for the extended cover.

Totally Agree!! Playlist not friendly is kind of annoying to me, can't edit the name or the number, have to select the songs one by one to the playlist, no playlist edit from pc etc

 

Actually the back cover is not supply or made by the iBasso, is made and supply exclusively by Jaben China (only China consumers who able to show their receipt for proof of purchase can get the free cover, only 88 pieces covers given it out for free)

Thanks for checking!  Maybe you can convince Jaben to sell them on eBay.  Then they would get a lot of business from folks in the U.S. :D

Cheers and Thanks!:beerchug:

Get it, you won't regret. I have the ipod video 30GB, DX90 is much much better, SQ wise.Firmware needs some ironing out, but I enjoy them both.

DX90 uses Android as its base but Ibasso has created a wall garden environment that only allows its own application to run ie the player software.

 

If you use the RK3066_IMG_Mod_Tool, you can extract the images from the firmware update and you can see that there is the Android component there.
