As of the moment. DX50 feels like a new DAP to me. With the latest update all buttons are responding flawlessly with each press. No more annoying delays. Except for the Long press on the power button to shutdown the player, all button functions are spot on.

no delays on press buttons - sounds very nice)

ive used many ipods and other dap's but never tried rockbox. 

 

could anyone briefly explain the advantages (and disadvantages if exist) of rockbox?

 

my dx50 is running on 1.2.8., and i like the sound and it has been working without any flaws.  i dont use the playlists or anything like that.

I suggest browsing the Rockbox web site for an overview of what Rockbox is and why it exists.

The specific advantages regarding DX50 include, but are not limited to: working playlists, working ReplayGain, and possibly better battery life.

The specific disadvantages regarding DX50 are: um... er... I can't think of any. I don't think Rockbox plays DSD files but who does that inconvenience? smily_headphones1.gif

Rockbox effectively fix several annoying quirks in DX50. True gapless function, better/advance EQ, ruler flat response, no hint of color If you want to listen to exactly how the song was recorded, Advance/customizable display or themes.

 

Not to mention the UI (both touchscreen & physical buttons) responds much better.

Most probably fixed, that was due to wrong sign when I was combining hw volume with sw balance.

The Mega site keeps giving me a download error. Could someone post a mirror of the latest firmware?

Can anyone remind me what should be the size of the album art so Rockbox displays it correctly?

 

EDIT: got it. Must be 175x175 only

I don't think it cares. I've thrown JPG files as large as 1500x1500 at it. No problems.

Sorry I was referring to embedded art on each files. I just have a few albums which is not displayed in Rockbox but fine with Mango.

Still no luck.  Same error message: "Temporary error, retrying."

Hm. In principle it shouldn't matter since embedded art is just JPG or whatever data stored in a tag. In practice it could be any of a number of things. What happens if you load the tracks into a tag fixer like Mp3tag and re-save them?

I use embedded 500x500 on my RBd Cowon D2.

I used iTunes to embed the images. It works on Mango, I'll re-encode it with XLD and see if that will fix it.

I'm going to blame iTunes for this one. I found more than a few mistakes introduced by iTunes into my library over the years. A pass with a tag fixer helped immensely.

Perfect timing...I literally just got my DX50 yesterday, and just updated it to 1.2.8 last night and did a bit of listening.  As a long time Rockbox fan and user via the Clip+/ClipZip, this is awesome news.  I'll certainly be trying this out after work today.  Many kudos to xzcc and anyone else working on this project...I'll do my best to test it extensively and report back :cool:
