Rockbox for iBasso DX50 + cwm recovery Latest Update: 2014-09-15 - Page 42

post #616 of 1228

I am about to give RB another go i believe i did not give it enough time to make a true

comparison , how would i make it completely neutral what settings will make it so.

 

is it best to leave the eq off, does this affect the neutrality of RB .

 

WHAT IS A NEUTRAL SETTING ? :gs1000smile:

To add on, and not to touch/adjust the bass and treble settings as well.

Conversely, to see what else Rockbox brings to the table, try turning on Crossfeed to the "Meier (Simple)" setting. With some headphones it is magic.

 

(Not absolutely neutral but that is not always the goal as I suggested above.)

I agree. It works wonders on sansa players too. Along with crossfeed I also use stereo width, anywhere between 110% and 125%. Don't forget to put channel configuration to custom in order for stereo width to take affect.

It simulates how the soundwave is travelling from a speaker setup to the ears of the listener standing a few feet in front of it. Basically, the sound from both the left and right speakers reaches the listener's left and right ear. However, the sound from the left speaker reaches the right ear of the listener on a sligthly delayed timing than the sound coming from the right speaker and vice versa.

When using an iem your left ear only hear sound from the left channel only and same goes for the right ear. Which is the reason why many people think the sound from an iem is unnatural.

But for me, I didn't like the effect of a crossfeed. It appears to muff the mids/highs a bit.

My RB had gone FUBAR and everytime I try to play a song, the screen goes white and displays 

 

PANIC

Stkov Audio

pc: xxxxxxx sp: xxxxxx

A: 0394308430

bt end

 

Tried reinstalling from the recovery menu but it didn't help.

 

So what should I do?

Boot into Mango (Stock FW). Then go to settings and do a factory reset. That should fix it.

I did a reset from the recovery first (before you telling me to reset in Mango) and it didn't help :/ Still the same.

But did you or did you not do it from Mango?

That was an error message from the party that ported Rockbox to the DX50. Something is corrupted in your install.

 

If necessary (and it probably is) do a full uninstall: 

  • uninstall
  • 1) use cwm to return to stock recovery (stock_recovery.zip from package you downloaded before)
  • 2) use stock recovery to flash any update.img

 

Then start all over again.

Also make sure that the gather runtime data under database settings is turned off.

If not the case go to manage settings on rockbox and try reset settings.
