DX200 always uses XMOS chip for music playback. What's the question?

I only use foobar, and the ASIO driver, combo with the SACD decoder.
Everything is running fine.
I do have USB 3.0 port though, and I never use it other than my foobar playback device.
Many thanks, I can finally get audio on windows.
Is there any difference between the asio and ibasso driver?
DX200 sounds pretty good to me right out of the box. Still <10 hours because I want to hear some of the changes as they're occurring. My impression is that it seemed a little lacking in bass quality and quantity at the moment but imaging is very good. I think it already surpasses a fully burned-in DX100 in that category. It's exciting to think how much better this will sound in time. It's also frightening to think it will trigger a search for new (expensive) cans to make the most of it.
One thing that's troubling is the difficulty inserting the micro SD card. I suppose I won't do it too often but I needed a small metal piece to help align the card for insertion/removal.
As they are all digital, there should be no impact on sound quality.
I think all the sound to be affected is in DAC/amp not the USB chips, as USB always work with binary.
I am not sure if I am wrong here, correct me if anything wrong. :)
I said befoer, that the path is always something->xmos->es9028->amp. ES9028 inputs are cottected only to XMOS, and accepts data only from XMOS.
Yes I did i I found it to be fixed.
@Paul - iBasso Any perspectives on international FW update availability?
