I've had my own negative DHL experience.  The package was at the local distribution center but rejected by them and returned to the Cincinnati hub.  I spoke to a DHL representative who corrected whatever issue existed and shipping was rescheduled for today.  But when I checked the status it was recipient refused deliver!  They never stopped by the house - was here all day.  Talking to a representative again they said the driver didn't know how to get to our house due to construction.  They couldn't follow the detour signs?  Pretty lame.  They're going to attempt to deliver Monday and call me first - hopefully I can get them around the detour.

So anybody with a DX90 having the issue with the Equalizer not working?

post #3693 of 7250
DX90 gods smiled on me. Both boys went to sleep, and I'm listening to Iron Maiden's Piece Of Mind album in FLAC format. Sounds very nice out of the box. I see what people mean about layering/positioning and SABRE sheen, and I'm using Astrotec AX35 which are way out of the DX90's league but were the first earphones I saw. I'll work my way through ear/headphones over the long weekend. Unfortunately I left my HE-400 and Ultrasones at work, so I'll have to wait until. Monday to try out the DX90 with my better headphones.

Mine is working fine. Similar to the later DX50 updates.

Just use the one for the DX50...They are virtually identical in operation. You can download the .pdf manual from the iBasso website.

Aarrgh...I can't get the DX90 to scan the songs on the micro sd card.  Either it scans super quick and every song says "null" underneath (and they won't play)...or it just sits for an hour or more in media scanning mode and never seems to complete.  If I manually go into an artist via directory it will load just that file.  I've been able to listen to one song so far...it sounded good but it would be nice to hear more :).

 

What is the best way to scan?  I've simply put a card in, turned unit on, and selected scan card.  Am I missing something?  How long should it take?  My card has 30 gig on it.

I had the same issue when I first got my DX50. You need to retags your songs. Use mp3tag to quickly retag everything: http://www.mp3tag.de/en/download.html

Thanks for your response, but this issue seems like a load to me.  These same songs all work fine in my DX100.  Why can't ibasso make the firmware work correctly...especially if it is a DX50 problem as well. I can load one directory folder at a time with no problem. 

 

The good news is that the DX90 does indeed sound good.  Head to head with my DX100, it provides a musical and more intimate sound than my DX100 with 1.2.7 firmware.  The DX100 still seems to have the better "reference" sound, more soundstage, a little more distant and a slight edge on detail....but the DX90 is very satisfying with a nice full sound that doesn't seem to give much up for details.  I could live with this sound.

Finally, mine just arrived.

However, I find the same issues exist on the DX90 that occurs on the DX50 (for example, the lag when going into All Music). Also, I like the look of this firmware as the fonts are larger.

 

BTW, I am testing with my jogging earphones, Future Sonics FS1 and they sound bad with everything I've tried un-amped, but not with the DX90.

What is the major improvement in sound signature can you notice from DX50 to DX90 ?

I'm very interested to know about the sound stage/3D imaging, vocal/instrument separation and bass impact between DX50 to DX90.

Thanks.

Anybody get one DOA?

 

Mine just has an awful buzz or hum through the HO - play a song, can't hear it - just a buzz with a faint clicking in the background - it doesn't change with the volume control - it doesn't change with the gain switch - just a buzz - tried factory reset - no change.

 

Am I doing something wrong? I did notice that when I inserted my sd card - it didn't take long to scan - and I couldn't find any of gthe songs in the directory - so next time I plugged in the card, i read the card and picked a song - the song shows on the display - it pauses and plays - just no output from the HO

Out of curiosity, did you try the line out, to see if there is any sound? Also, while the player is on, take the sd card out and reinsert it to see if it will do a normal scan.

I tried re-inserting the card - then I look in the directory - it has me look at the sd card - my songs are there - HO is a high frequency whine. I don't have anything to test the LO with

 

How do you get the battery out - maybe a reset of power - no documentation came with this unit - press and slide? I don't want to break it

When I look at my music - it lists the songs by order they appeared in the albums - all the 01's - then all the 02's - I don't see a place where I can choose by album or artist.... where are the sort options?

 

ugh

I suppose you plug in your phone at the bottom jack not the the one on top (Digital out) where you have the SD slot also?
