post #1456 of 5293

This has probably been covered, but is there a US/North America release date set yet? 

 

Sorry, this thread is so long, and I researched their site and the web and could not find that info.

You are visibly implying that I invented this. A friend has it and has a slight hiss on his Fitear MH335DW. Not strong but not a completely black background. This occurs with all transports. But only with this particularly sensitive iem. Apparently. Of course we will wait for other people to test it with various sensitive iems to confirm.

Apologies if you read it that way.

 

I went back to look into this. You can hear it when you stop the music I then cranked the volume way up and simply plugged the IEM's in and out to see if this was real or not - it is. 

 

After you lock in on this frequency you can turn it down and you can still notice it. Not annoying and sticking out though especially when the music starts.

No problem. I suppose it may vary depending on the iem. Thanks for the feedback. It is important to me as I only use iems, including some sensitive ones. So I will wait for more feedback on the matter. Cheers

I'm wondering the same.

Trying to figure out a good DAP between AK 240, AK 120, ZX1, DX 100.

I think this would go well with JH Roxanne.

X5 looks like a good value option too.

DX90 will be out in a couple of months or so too. If it really does improve on the DX50 , it will be quite special. They've ironed out pretty much all of the gremlins in the firmware now too, so should be pretty smooth right out of the gate...

There's a little bit of unboxing in Chinese, just no "dongle" for the line-out so far

A couple of owners here in Hong Kong started another thread in Chinese as well

can't wait ...

PS: try to understand about this "Line-out bloc" that we saw on some pictures and Try to find if the LO is a " réal " LO
And check the Play list management.
Also, if you can, take some pics of the UI please.
And.... Tell us How it sound. :-)

Thanks in advance.

I'm already on way home...
Did not try out the playlist feature. But I have one or two pics of the UI and the funny block line out thingamabob. They only had the block there to show that it exists, but no headphones attached to it. But I tried the balanced out with the AK/Final Audio IEMs and some huge balanced headphones I never heard of.

Don't expect too much from me :-D
Only things I could compare them with are my SM64 and the DX50.

Did they explained the purpose of the "funny block line out " ? ? ?
